Ok I'm sure you've heard about this shocking documentary. What are your thoughts? Many inconsistencies have been pointed out about the testimony of these 2 men and about the documentary in general. It's very suggestive and it seems credible but then I remember that there is no hard evidence to prove any of these allegations and that MJ was found NOT GUILTY in all the 14 courts, not 1, 14 back in 2005 after surprise investigations in his properties and body checks. I don't wanna rule out the possibility of all of this to be true because who really knows? But the highly public nature of this circus and the staggering 1.5 billion of dollars lawsuit against the MJ estate make me wonder...
Having said that, none of these claims will ever tarnish MJ's artistic legacy. His talent was just out of the ordinary to say the least and it's gonna be forever missed.
It said the insurance carrier MJ had just wanted to settle for $15 million and be done with it while the kid, a man by the time it all was deposed, did not even describe his penis right.
That was the first case back in 1992/3. He settled because he had to go on tour and couldn't afford a trial. He eventually went to trial in 2003 and really hurt his career and state of mind despite being acquitted. So sad. What drives me crazy too is that this mockumentary tries to tarnish Michael's legacy as an artist portraying Wade burning MJ memorabilia and accusing the MJ estate of being an accomplice basically as they're suing his companies for this which would set a very dangerous precedent. It all stinks so much to me. Wade was still a MJ fan in 2011 but then he didn't get the job from the MJ estate as a choreographer for a Vegas Show and immediately remembered he was abused and sues for 1.5B? Come on.
none of these claims will ever tarnish MJ's artistic legacy. His talent was just out of the ordinary to say the least and it's gonna be forever missed.
Not sure I totally agree with that. But I suppose we'll see when a few more years have passed.
I will be honest and say I still haven't seen this all the way through. That said, Robson's claims alone seem pretty fishy when he spent sooooo many years defending Jackson at SO many different times and at SO many ages. It's not like he became an adult yesterday. He's 37.
Exactly totally fake. And the claims of his killing doctor?! Creepy af. We all know Michael had issues but sayin he was a pedophile and a manipulative drug addict that basically killed himself. No. People took advantage of him because he was a gold mine and everybody was a yes man around him because all they could see was money money money.
SaintChrisBeCool: It's so quiet in Aerosmith world these days. The pandemic sure would be easier if we could get a box set of unreleased material, or a Deuces Are Wild Vegas DVD, or something, anything, to pass the time.

SaintChrisBeCool: tedz, there's gotta be MORE than enough material. There's a couple of fans online (though not on this site, I don't think) who are absolutely obsessed with outtakes and have spent a lot of time digging up and cataloging all the songs by the band that...

SaintChrisBeCool: ...have never seen the light of day. There is a lot of material that never got released over the last 25-30 years. The little bits and snippets of stuff I've heard from the Nine Lives sessions especially were really good.

Alicanto: Love the Nine Lives outtakes. Too bad we've only got snippets to listen to. And then there's the even deeper buried outtakes, like 13, Rocket 88, Sister June, House of the Rising Sun... Who knows if some of those actually exist or are just rumors, but I...
