It’s official — the molestation case brought against Michael Jackson‘s estate by Wade Robson has officially closed.
Unfortunately, the judge ruled on Tuesday that too much time had passed to move forward with Wade’s case against the King of Pop. Tragic!
In case you forgot, the choreographer accused the Thriller singer of abusing him for eight years — starting back in 1990.
However, oddly enough, the dancer initially denied any molestation claims in 2005 while under oath for a different case the icon was on trial for. Very inneresting.
Wade claims that his current suit was brought about after a breakthrough in therapy — four years after Michael’s death in 2009. Apparently, Wade suffered a pair of nervous breakdowns in 2011 which resulted in him seeking help.
“I began to recognize for myself that Jackson had molested me. I first spoke about the sexual activity I had with Jackson. This revelation initiated an enormous emotional, psychological and physiological upheaval in my life that continues until this day.”
Despite the judge’s ruling, Wade is apparently eager to appeal. His lawyer relayed that Mr. Robson was unable to file his legal claim any sooner due to the psychological damage he suffered.
The lawyer also made note that the dismissal of the case didn’t determine whether the allegations against the Smooth Criminal performer were true OR false.
Though we’re sorry that Wade was unable to take his claims to court — we hope he found some closure during this process.
