Terry George had Jackson talking about masturbation on the telephone with him; Jason Francia endured hugging, then kissing, then fondling of his genitals (disguised as tickling); Jordan detailed a steady progression from hugging to kissing to fondling to oral sex; and Wade, who knew Jackson the longest and was seemingly the closest to him, included all of that plus went further to include sodomy. From what we know about acquaintance molesters they become more bold with their victims as time goes by. Jackson defenders insist that Wade Robson is only after money, and is lying about the abuse.
Jackson waited to see what he could get away with before progressing to the next level of intimacy. Why Wade would ruin his career by claiming abuse from Jackson is unfathomable, and no amount of money would be sufficient to cover the shame and embarrassment of admitting to (or even lying about) being sodomized by a celebrity such as Jackson.
” Murray is measured in his response: “I’ll never be unfair to Michael and I’m not here to destroy Michael.
You asked a question and I’m not prepared to answer – not now.” We can only guess what Murray has seen or encountered, but we do know that Murray knew Jackson in Las Vegas during 20, and treated Jackson and his children when they lived there.
To date, we have the detailed accounts of four boys who have been molested by, or had to endure overtures from, Jackson – Terry George, Jason Francia, Jordan Chandler and Wade Robson.
I have put them in that order for a very good reason, and it is this: The closer Jackson became to a boy, and the longer he knew a boy, the further the abuse progressed.
The Jackson fans may hate what she had to say, but it is the absolute best spin that can be put on the Chandler allegations.
Also interesting was this comment from Aphrodite on Wade Robson during the 2005 trial: “He was adamant that nothing had happened to him, but I will say, I re-read his testimony because when he first came out with those new allegations, I’m looking at his testimony and reading between the lines, part of me felt like he was maybe being TOO ADAMANT…that maybe there was something to what he was saying later, but that’s going inside he envelope you know what I mean?
At a dinner house in March of 2006 on Ventura Blvd and Coldwater Canyon Blvd here in The San Fernando Valley, Aphrodite Jones told me POINT-BLANK, and emphatically stated that Michael Jackson was GUILTY of child molestation. After reiterating the unfairness of the 2005 trial, she made this extraordinary admission about the 1993 Chandler case: Do I have doubts about the innocence in 1993? That it came from Aphrodite Jones added an extra sting to the slap, and MJ fans were left bewildered and confused. None of us I don’t think will ever know what happened.
Not to be deterred, Liz Hayes presses on: “As a friend, someone that was his closest friend, I would have expected you to say “absolutely not”.” “Well, sometimes expectations are not always satisfied,” Murray continues.
“One thing I will tell you is this: I may have formed an impression of an individual based upon certain things I have seen or encountered.” Ms Hayes was not going to be put off, after all, this is someone who knows Jackson very well and she doesn’t want this question left hanging.
” he dramatically pauses for 15 seconds before replying: “I’m not prepared to answer that question, not now.
And I tell you the reason why – because my interview with you is candid and honest, and I will not make up or fabricate anything.” A most extraordinary reply, considering Murray had also told Liz Hayes he was a great friend to Jackson and they were close.
While we won’t go in to the ins and outs of Murray’s trial, conviction or subsequent appeal as that is not the focus of this website, we will however note his comments in an interview he gave in November 2013 to Australian current affairs show 60 Minutes (a franchised version of the US stalwart).
