British newspaper The Sunday People released an explosive report Saturday saying they had unearthed FBI files alleging that the late Michael Jackson spent $35 million paying off over two dozen families of young boys he molested.
They say that these files from FBI cases CADCE MJ-02463 and CR 01046 were not given to prosecutors during MK’ 2005 molestation case when he was found not guilty on four charges of child sexual abuse.
According to the paper these documents accuse Michael Jackson of “groping a world-famous child star, watching porn films while molesting another boy and fondling the genitals of a third in his private cinema” while his unknowing mother sat a few rows in front of them. The reports claims 17 boys were named as being victims of Michael Jackson’s abuse, including five child actors and two dancers.
Ironically, these documents come from a man Michael Jackson hired to protect himself, private eye Anthony Pellicano. His files were seized by the FBI in 2002 when he was arrested for bugging big Hollywood stars like Sylvester Stallone.
Roger Friedman, a Michael Jackson expert who has closely followed Michael Jackson news for years, says that all of this is being taken out of context and the source can’t be trusted. Friedman writes on his Showbiz411 website that the FBI files are “based on files left behind by a National Enquirer reporter, now dead, called Jim Mitteager. In 2005 I went through tons of Mitteager’s files, re-reporting them. A lot of it was just poppycock.”
UPDATE: Michael Jackson’s lawyer told Radar Online: “The FBI never had any files alleging that Michael Jackson had sexually abused 24 young boys, because it never happened.”
What do you think? Is this for real, or just a bunch of poppycock?
