It’s likely that Michael Jackson was disturbed. But it’s not 100 percent certain that Michael Jackson was a monster who molested every kid around him. Even though he was acquitted of several charges related to molesting children in 2005, he was still considered guilty by the general public.
When Michael Jackson died on June 25, 2009, everybody suddenly forgot about the child molestation charges and the weird behavior as Jackson was practically elevated to the status of a saint. Michael once again became the hottest pop star in the world again, even though he wasn’t alive. Even his once-rival Madonna got into the hype.
For the past couple years, there have been lawsuits against the Jackson estate by some who claimed they were abused by the pop star, but nobody really took them seriously. Suddenly, on the 7th anniversary of his death, the tabloids are trying to destroy Michael Jackson legacy. Radar Online, which is not always known as the most reliable source in the world, reported that evidence against Michael Jackson in 2003 proved he was a horrific person.
“Michael Jackson hid a sinister house of horrors inside his infamous Neverland Ranch, stockpiling images of pornography, animal torture, S&M and gore in a bid to seduce innocent young boys.”
Radar Online posted images, documents, and other things. All of this made some people wonder why Jackson wasn’t put behind bars because of this. Some of Michael Jackson’s fans had some pretty intelligent responses in the comments section.
“How can the prosecutor have so much damaging evidence on Michael Jackson without any of it coming out in the trail??? There is no way!!” says Shadow.
“Yeah I’m with you. it doesn’t take several years for them to find new evidence, this would have been in the trial. They desperately wanted him convicted for this so it’s pretty weird that they left out their smoking gun. This is just a made up story to drive readers and clicks to their site just like all other gossip sites,” says JimZii.
If the purpose of Radar Online‘s article was to generate clicks and spread to other major sites, it has worked very well. Now, Page Six has added to the frenzy by insisting that detectives were convinced that Michael Jackson molested one of his nephews.
“Investigators were convinced Michael Jackson preyed on his own nephews, several sources involved in the criminal probe told The Post.”
The article adds that Santa Barbara County detectives interviewed two of Jackson’s nephews and another family while investigating the pop star back in 2004 and 2005. The detectives believe that Jackson silenced his family with gifts and threats. In fact, one nephew, who was 18 at the time, allegedly admitted that something wasn’t right.
Once again, all of the questions beg the answer: Why now? Why didn’t this come out years ago when the trial was going on? If all of this is true, why was it hidden from the trial and general public? While some suggest the Santa Barbara police covered up for Jackson after being paid, the fact remains that the County of Santa Barbara desperately wanted Michael to be convicted.
Many of Michael Jackson’s fans are wrong for making up excuses for the belated pop star at every turn. However, many detractors are also wrong for believing everything they hear, especially from websites that are known to produce clickbait articles for the purpose of earning as much advertising revenue as possible. Perhaps we will know the truth one day. However, for now, one must not believe everything they read in regards to Michael Jackson and his alleged molestation adventures.
