Michael Jackson's Estate Responds to New Sex Abuse Claims


Michael Jackson


A 36-year-old man named James Safechuck has claimed that the 'Beat It' singer repeatedly molested him after they appeared in a 1987 Pepsi commercial.

Michael Jackson's estate has responded to a man's claims that he was molested by the King of Pop as a child, saying that the man's accusations should be dismissed because he once said Jackson never did anything inappropriate to him. A lawyer for Jackson's estate Howard Weitzman said in a statement, "Mr. Safechuck's request to file a late claim against the Jackson Estate so he can recover money from Michael's beneficiary will hopefully be rejected."

"This is a person that made his claim five years after Michael died, more than 20 years after the incidents supposedly happened and has given sworn testimony that Michael never did anything inappropriate to him," Weitzman added.

Previously, a man named James Safechuck, 36, submitted court documents on Monday, August 4 to ask permission to file a late claim against the singer's estate. According to the documents, the alleged sex abuse took place after Safechuck appeared in a 1987 Pepsi commercial with the "Beat It" singer when he was a minor.

"[Jackson] engaged in a calculated course of conduct to lure both [Safechuck] and his parents into a false sense of security and normalcy that was far from reality," read the documents. "And [Jackson] was successful in his efforts to the point that [Safechuck] endured repeated acts of sexual abuse of a heinous nature and was brainwashed by the decedent into believing they were acts of love and instigated by James himself rather than the decedent." A hearing for the case is scheduled for September 4.

    Crimes against children are so heinous that accused pedophiles like Michael Jackson, Sylvain Kustyan, Jerry Sandusky, etc. must be apprehended before they have years to continue to destroy young lives. Sandusky and Jackson are now out of the picture. But unfortunately, Kustyan, who has been formally charged with two counts each of 1st Degree Sodomy and Sexual Abuse of a ten-year-old little boy, fled to avoid imminent arrest. Kustyan, formerly of Tuscaloosa, Alabama and Hermin/ Mazingarbe, France, as an English teacher, has led numerous groups of schoolchildren on trips to the US, the UK and Ireland.. Pedophiles condemn their victims to a lifetime of emotional and psychological trauma and often permanent physical ailments as well. Since the average pedophile has 300 different victims in their lifetime and since the recidivism rate among pedophiles is virtually 100% and since there is no effective treatment and no known cure they must be stopped ASAP!
