Another man is coming forward to say that the late pop star Michael Jackson sexually molested him as a boy, bringing the total number of cases against MJ to 5.
James Safechuck, who appeared in a Pepsi commercial with Jackson in 1987, filed a sexual assault complaint last Friday, according to multiple sources.
James and Michael continued to have a close relationship following the soft drink ad. The photo above shows Jackson taking James to a performance of Phantom of the Opera with Liza Minnelli in 1988. Safechuck was only 10 at the time.
Employees at Neverland Ranch mentioned James as a potential abuse victim in various 2005 court documents. But James always denied that Jackson did anything inappropriate to him. Until now…
Now, insiders say James is breaking his silence and claiming Michael molested him soon after the two met.
