James Safechuck, Michael Jackson Accuser, Alleges Five Years of Sexual Abuse

by at .  Updated at . Comments

James Safechuck, a former child star who appeared alongside Michael Jackson in a 1987 Pepsi commercial is now reportedly accusing the legendary pop singer of sexually molesting him.

The Daily Beast has identified Safechuck as the new claimant in an ongoing lawsuit against Jackson.

The Wade Robson-Michael Jackson molestation trial has been underway for over a year now, and while court files remain sealed, a source has apparently revealed to The Daily Beast that Safechuck is now involved in the case.

His testimony could prove very damaging to the Jackson side's argument:

Safechuck is expected to claim that Jackson molested him for a period of five years beginning in 1987 when he was only 10 years old.

Insiders say Safechuck had denied for years that he had been abused by Jackson, but decided to come forward after the claims made by Robson were made public.

Rumors about an inappropriate relationship between Safechuck and Jackson date back to the late 80s, at which time Jackson often made public appearances with Safechuck and other young boys.

Jackson's estate has denied Robson's claims on the grounds that his allegations are false and that he waited too long after the time of the alleged incident to pursue legal action.

Lawyers working for Jackson's family are expected to pursue a similar defense with Safechuck.

Michael Jackson pioneered so many dance moves, he pretty much is in his own category. No one ever moved like this guy.

What a surprise they're all teaming up now to try to get some of that Jackson money!! Will they bring in Murray the murderer too, who seems to be waiting to make any comments till he sees how much he will be paid if he lies for them and murders Michael yet again? Scumbags.... the man is dead. Michael was found innocent of all charges while he was here on earth. His life was made miserable with these false accusations! Of course it's only about money now! Disgusting.
