Wade Robson is a famed choreographer who was once known as a protege of Michael Jackson. On Thursday, Robson appeared on NBC’s Today show, just two weeks after filing legal documents claiming that he was sexually molested by the King of Pop.
Speaking out for the first time, Robson told Matt Lauer, “I never forgot for one moment what Michael Jackson did to me.”
However, the 30-year-old dancer has previously sworn under oath that nothing inappropriate had ever happened between him and Michael during Jackson’s 2005 molestation trial.
Now, Robson says he has been emotionally traumatized his entire adult life by the events which took place at Jackson’s Neverland Ranch estate from the time he was seven until about the time he turned 14.
When pressed by Lauer as to what specifically took place, Robson was vague. “He performed sexual acts on me, and forced me to perform sexual acts on him,” said Robson, “Michael told me that we were in love.”
Robson is now married and has a child of his own. He says he has experienced several mental breakdowns as he reflected on daily phone calls from Michael Jackson in which he says, “He would role play and train me for these scenarios.”
Robson says that he was brainwashed by Michael and adds, “He was a troubled man.”
