Mirror: Sunday People Alleges that Michael Jackson Paid $35 Million to Silence at Least Two Dozen Boys He Abused
The UK Daily Mail reports via the Sunday People paid $35 million to silence at least two dozen boys he abused over the years. According to accounts, there were secret FBI files exclusively seen by the Sunday People that revealed how the King of Pop bought off parents and victims. The story also goes on to say that the documents, case numbers CADCE MJ-02463 and CR 01046, were not passed on to prosecutors in Jackson’s 2005 trial, when he was cleared of molesting a child. When Anthony Pellicano was investigated in 2002 for bugging Hollywood stars, the FBI seized his files, including many about Jackson and all of the sordid details of Jackson’s exploits.
Does this really come as a shock to anyone? The two greatest legal travesties out of Hollywood from the past 20 years was that O.J. Simpson was found not guilty of murdering Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman due to jury nullification and that Michale Jackson was never convicted of molesting children.
Michael Jackson discusses his tucking boys into bed … “When you say bed, you make it sexual” … ICK!!!
Michael Jackson paid $35 million in hush money to at least two dozen young boys he sexually abused over 15 years, it has been alleged.
Sunday People has published explosive ‘secret FBI files’ suggesting the King of Pop groomed and molested children from at least 1989, despite his insistence he was just spending time with them.
The damning files claim the deceased popstar was a ‘pedophile’ who watched porn while assaulting a boy, molested a famous child star, fondled a child’s genitals in his private cinema and groped another child whose mother wasn’t ‘bothered’ by it.
The FBI did not return Mail Online’s calls today.
Jackson family lawyers have to date insisted the star has only paid off the family of Jordan Chandler, 13, who he allegedly abused in 1993.
However a sleuth hired by Anthony Pellicano – a celebrity private eye Jackson allegedly hired to make the pedophilia claims go away – has claimed Jackson was a ‘serial child predator’ who paid out scores of children he allegedly abused at his Neverland Ranch.
The “lost boys” lured to Michael Jackson’s Neverland ranch were enticed into a sordid fantasy world hidden from their parents, the Sunday People can reveal.
Shocking audio tapes from the singer’s secret FBI file offer a chilling insight into the superstar’s depravity.
They reveal how groups of kids would be invited to Jackson’s estate, where he would then isolate his prey.
The twisted star would sleep with children in a tepee as well as his bed and was even seen groping two boys.
