Following the shocking release of a court filing claiming Michael Jackson raped him, Wade Robson opened up about the allegations in a heartfelt Facebook post.

Documents filed by Robson’s attorneys allege that the late music icon forced him to do all sorts of sickening things when he was between the ages of 7-14.

Wade, now 31, previously denied Jackson was guilty of any wrongdoing during his 2005 molestation trial, serving as a witness in the singer's defense.

Last year he came forward, however, saying he was brainwashed and traumatized but all the horrors of his childhood abuse had come to the surface.

In the aftermath of the leak of his latest court filing against Jackson's estate, Wade says, "This article contains some of the details of my child sexual abuse."

"It was not the plan for this info to be made public, but now that it has, I am sharing it because it is important for these ‘uncomfortable’ topics to be talked about."

James Safechuck, one of Michael Jackson's molestation accusers, says the King of Pop used secret code words for the sex acts they allegedly engaged in.

Think "duck butter." Now go find something to vomit into.

Like Wade Robson, who has filed bombshell documents asking the star's estate to admit Michael Jackson raped him, Safechuck makes some serious allegations.

Now 36, James Safechuck's similar lawsuit claims Jackson molested him when at age 10 when he traveled with Michael for his Bad tour. This was 1988.

Safechuck claims that Michael taught him to use code words, referring to his erection as "bright light, brick city" and calling his semen, "duck butter."

Not only that, the accuser claims Jackson used secret signals.

The two would hold hands, he says, and when Michael started scratching the inside of James' hand with his finger, this indicated that he wanted to have sex.

Michael Jackson's child molestation accuser, choreographer Wade Robson, has filed new court documents detailing the star's allegedly sordid acts.

Wade is suing Michael's estate for a wide variety of sexual acts committed against him, including oral sex, mutual masturbation, and even anal rape.

The documents seek an admission from the estate that from 1990-97, the King of Pop committed many disturbing acts against Robson, then age 7-14.

From the start, the estate has adamantly denied Robson's allegations.

Robson’s attorneys start by asking Jackson’s estate to admit that Jackson “invited Robson and his family to stay at [Jackson’s ranch] in February 1990.”

There, the documents ask the estate to admit Jackson “employed an audible alarm system for his bedroom [and] hung ‘do not disturb’ signs on his bedroom door.”

Inside, the documents ask Jackson’s estate to admit, “sexual activities occurred between [Jackson] and Wade Robson periodically" from 1990-97.”

Those alleged activities include, but are not necessarily limited to:

The 25th day of June. For many, it's a day they will never forget.

On the five-year anniversary of Michael Jackson's death, many fans will likely recall where they were when they learned of the King of Pop's untimely demise.

It's hard to believe that the late, great King of Pop died five years ago now, succumbing to cardiac arrest in the afternoon of June 25, 2009 at the age of 50.

Dr. Conrad Murray was eventually found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the death of Jackson, who may be gone, but whose legacy lives and thrives.

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

Without question, Jackson's death introduced a new generation of fans to his greatness and reinvigorated the loyal followers who loved him from day one.

In a sense, the impact he left is felt more with each passing year. But to say that the entertainer has not rested entirely in peace would be an understatement.

Some of the well-documented personal struggles and eccentricities that made news when he was alive have only been amplified since he left this world.

Michael's three children, Prince, Blanket and Paris Jackson - kids he worked so tirelessly to give a normal well-adjusted life - have felt his loss the hardest.

When Kim Kardashian and Kanye West got together, we gave them our best side-eye, but it didn't seem that far-fetched that people so in love with themselves and attention would gravitate toward each other.

Not so with some of the other big couples in Hollywood, particularly those of the May-December varieties where the age gap is so great one could be the other's parent.

Then there are those pairings that inspire the public collectively asking "what could they POSSIBLY have in common?" Besides fame, that is. (And likely an affinity for kink.)

Some of Hollywood's best and brightest change significant others like normal people change underwear, so it's no surprise that some couplings are pretty bizarre.

Nevertheless, here are 17 weird celebrity couples we can't even believe:

Macaulay Culkin and Mila Kunis
Before becoming Ashton Kutcher's Baby Mama, Mila Kunis dated Macaulay Culkin...for EIGHT YEARS. Speaking of Ashton...

And speaking of those (sometimes) fleeting May-December romances, check out our gallery of some celebrity couples with big age differences between them.

Michael Jackson would've been friends with Justin Bieber, says Jermaine Jackson. And while the thought of Michael hanging out with a 14-year-old Justin might be a little unsettling, Jermaine claims the King of Pop would've been a positive influence on Bieber.

TMZ caught up with Jermaine at LAX recently and posed some interesting questions to the former jackson 5 member about how Michael would've gotten along with Justin:

Asked how his brother would react to the recent leak of Bieber's racist videos, Jermaine replied, "Michael would've straightened him out. Michael would've spoke to him like a father figure, told him, 'Hey you've gotta cool it, calm down.'"

Responding to the much simpler question of, "Do you think Michael would've been friends with Justin?" Jermaine replied quickly, "Probably so, yeah."

Safe to say that 17-year-old Michael Jackson fan Brett Nichols impressed more than the judges of his school's talent show with his impression of the singer.

He's been invited to Las Vegas by the Jackson Estate to attend a performance of Michael Jackson ONE, the amazing show featuring Jackson's music!

The executors of Michael's estate saw the student's Michael Jackson impression online and were so amazed, they put together a package to send to Nichols.

A Jackson rep confirms that they sent Nichols the new MJ album XScape and an invitation for Brett and his family (mom, dad and sister) to come to Vegas.

They contacted Nichols' principal in Turlock, Calif., who in turn told Nichols and his family, who in turn were excited beyond belief at the praise and opportunity.

Beats a high school talent show trophy any day. If you haven't seen the video above, check it out, Brett is unreal. Does the moonwalk and everything!
