Our website deals with the child molestation allegations against pop star Michael Jackson.
Jackson was accused of this crime five times. However, a number does not mean anything in itself if you do not know what is behind it – and our experience is that many people do not really know. Some might have heard soundbites, maybe certain inflammatory claims which were taken out of context, but very few people actually know about the full content and context of these allegations against Michael Jackson. Who were the accusers? What did they actually allege? How did those allegations emerge? How were these five cases and certain players connected to and influenced by each other?
Our mission is to present the full content and context of these allegations against Jackson. To do that we discuss the 1993 (Jordan Chandler) allegations and the 2005 (Gavin Arvizo) allegations in seperate sections. The 1993 section also contains the discussion of Jason Francia’s allegations because their emergence is strongly connected to investigators’ activities in the Chandler case. The fourth and fifth allegation was made in 2013 and in 2014, four-five years after Jackson’s death, by Wade Robson and James Safechuck respectively. Robson and Safechuck are represented by the the same lawyer and they both demand money from Michael Jackson’s Estate in a creditor’s claim/civil lawsuit. Earlier they both denied that they have ever been molested or inapproprietely touched by Jackson, despite of two very public rounds of allegations against the star in 1993 and in 2005 and a criminal trial in 2005 when both men were already adults. Now, years after Jackson’s death, when he is not here any more to respond to these allegations, face his accusers and defend himself, their stories suddenly changed and they both demand puntitive damages and monetary compensation from Jackson’s Estate for alleged sexual abuse by the star. We do have many things to say about these allegations as well, but as of now, we would like to keep these thoughts to ourselves until the cases are ongoing. Until then please check out the court proceedings, court documents and updates on the Daily Michael website.
There is also a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) section with answers to questions which cannot specifically be linked to one of these cases but are generally connected to the allegations. That section is available.
If you truly want to understand these allegations you will have to invest a bit of time in reading. We tried to make the articles as short as possible, but even so there are some long reads because the events of the case are complicated. There is no real understanding of these cases in five minutes from media soundbites, out-of-context bits of information, inflammatory tabloid articles or Internet gossip, no matter how tempting it is to jump to conclusions based on such.
Much of the blog was written by people whose first language is not English. So for grammar or stylistic errors please forgive us, we are working on it… Hopefully that will not spoil the content.
