LOS ANGELES, Sept. 15 (UPI) -- Celebrity choreographer Wade Robson filed court papers claiming Michael Jackson's companies were a front for a "child sexual abuse operation."
Robson, 33, who previously filed a claim against Jackson's estate in 2013, has amended that complaint to include statements that Jackson' MJJ Productions and MJJ Ventures were fronts for a child sex ring.
"MJJ PRODUCTIONS and MJJ VENTURES were held out to the public to be businesses dedicated to creating and distributing multimedia entertainment by MICHAEL JACKSON, however, in fact, they actually served dual purposes," Robson's attorney Vince Finaldi wrote in the new documents. "The thinly-veiled, covert second purpose of these businesses was to operate as a child sexual abuse operation, specifically designed to locate, attract, lure and seduce child sexual abuse victims."
In graphic statements provided to the court, Robson detailed his alleged abuse at the hands of Jackson, which took place over seven years, from the time Robson was 7 until he hit puberty at 14.
Robson, who was discovered and mentored by Jackson, testified at the singer's 2005 trial and spoke in defense of Jackson. Robson claims he had blocked out the abuse until he entered psychotherapy in 2012 following a nervous breakdown.
A trial is scheduled for March 13, 2017.
