Michael Jackson Allegations: Biographer Claims to Have Found Evidence to Exonerate Late Star

Certain allegations against late ‘King of Pop’ Michael Jackson, who passed away in 2009, have continued to reverberate. Thanks to a recent HBO documentary, Leaving Neverland, two men have come forward to reveal that they suffered sexual abuse at the hands of the star when they were minors. The men, Wade Robson and James Safechuck, have stood by their on-screen testimonies despite having been hit by death threats from those who feel their claims are misguided. With Jackson no longer able to defend himself, there have also been claims that the documentary was made in poor taste.

Allegations levied by Robson and Safechuck, too, may be under threat if claims made by a Jackson biographer are verified. Mike Smallcombe, who wrote the biography Making Michael, has advised that he may have found evidence to suggest the men’s claims are false.

Having spoken to Mirror Online, Smallcombe claims that Robson’s statement regarding abuse which reportedly occurred when his family went on a trip to the Grand Canyon may be erroneous. This stems, it appears, from a court statement Robson’s mother made under oath in 1993 – where she stated that her son had actually gone with them on the trip, not having stayed behind with Jackson at Neverland.

“His mother, Joy Robson, testified under oath in a disposition in 1993/1994 in relation to the Jodie Chandler case that Wade had actually gone with them on that trip to the Grand Canyon, before the entire family returned to Neverland for the second time the following weekend,” Smallcombe is quoted by the NME.

“Joy Robson had no reason to lie about this; she openly admitted that Wade stayed with Jackson alone on other occasions.”

In discussion with Mirror Online, Smallcombe also advises that dates don’t seem to line up with regard to some of James Safechuck’s claims. It all revolves around the alleged victim stating that he was abused between the years 1988 and 1992, and that such acts occurred in the train station at Neverland.

“The deficiency in Safechuck’s story is this,” Smallcombe states, “Construction on Neverland’s train station didn’t start until the latter part of 1993, and it didn’t open until the first part of 1994, when Safechuck was 16.” Safechuck claims to have been abused at the age of 14.

“These are two extremely detailed and key stories in the documentary,” Smallcombe advises the NME, “Especially in the case of Wade Robson – which have been provably fabricated.”

“And while this doesn’t categorically rule out that Jackson abused them, it does make you wonder, if they’ve fabricated these stories, what about the rest?”
