James Safechuck: Michael Jackson Kept Me Out Of School So He Could Molest Me

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Earlier today, The Daily Beast reported that former child actor James Safechuck has accused Michael Jackson of molesting him when he was between the ages of 10 and 15 years old. 

Now more details of the allegations are emerging, as Safechuck's lawyer, Maryann Marzano, has spoken to TMZ and revealed that MJ kept him out of school in order to abuse him.

"If there is still any question about the predatory nature of Michael Jackson's so-called 'friendships' with young boys," Marzano says. "It should be laid to rest by the indisputable facts of what Michael did to James Safechuck."

Marzano also adds that Jackson behaved in a compulsively "narcissistic" fashion and had a 10-year-old Safechuck withdrawn from school so he would be available for Jackson to molest him.

Safechuck is not the first to accuse Jackson of sexual abuse in the years since the pop icon's death.

Former So You Think You Can Dance judge Wade Robson accused Jackson of sexual abuse last year and claimed that he was tormented by the singer so severely that Robson's father killed himself upon learning of what his son had endured. 

Safechuck has now joined Robson on a list of plaintiffs in a lawsuit against Jackson's estate.

We'll have more details on this shocking story as they become available.
