The son of Michael Jackson‘s former personal maid — who told a 2005 trial that Jackson had tickled and fondled him as a boy — tells RadarOnline.com that he purposefully isn’t following the latest molestation scandal surrounding the singer.
Jason Francia says he’s shut all news about the King Of Pop out of his life, after he previously claimed Jackson molested him on three occasions beginning when he was just seven.
“I haven’t followed anything regarding MJ,” Francia tells Radar exclusively.
In fact, Jason reveals he only learned about Wade Robson‘s court claims when he was approached for comment by media outlets.
Robson, who staunchly defended Jackson in all of his criminal investigations since 1993, reversed his position in April, asking a Los Angeles probate court to allow him to file a late creditor’s claim against the Jackson estate.
In a sit-down interview with Matt Lauer on TODAY, Robson called Jackson, who died in 2009 at age 50, a “pedophile and a child sexual abuser.”
“This is the first i’m hearing about all of this,” admitted Jason, when asked if Robson’s 2013 position vindicated his prior testimony that Jackson had molested him and that of his mother, Blanca, who alleged she saw the pop star showering and laughing with a young boy at Neverland Ranch — with their underwear lying outside the shower door.
“I haven’t followed these news (stories) at all; that’s what i get for not following news on the MJ stuff.”
Jason and his mom reached an out-of-court financial settlement with Jackson in which the entertainer denied wrongdoing.
