Family, friends and fans of the late Michael Jackson have been torn over the explosive two-part HBO documentary Leaving Neverland. Now, a top lie detection expert is revealing exclusively to RadarOnline.com if Wade Robson and James Safechuck could be lying about their accusations that the King of Pop molested them as children.
Lie detection expert Michael Sylvestre used a truth-detecting device to scrutinize the statements made by the accusers in the documentary against Jackson.
Sylvestre, a certified voice-stress analyst, fed the clips into the DecepTech Voice Stress Analysis Machine – a computerized version of the Psychological Stress Evaluation, which is used by over 50 law-enforcement agencies in the U.S. The test is said to be superior to a conventional polygraph, although some critics note that the same critiques against traditional polygraphs can be applied to this technology as well.
In the documentary, Safechuck, claimed Jackson held a mock ceremony and even gifted him jewelry.
“I was really into jewelry at that time and he would reward me with jewelry for doing sexual acts to him,” he claimed. “He would say that I need to sell him some so I could earn the gift.”
He alleged the mock wedding ceremony took place in Jackson’s bedroom.
“We filled out some vows like we would be bonded forever,” he said. “It felt good. And the ring is nice. It has a row of diamonds. The wedding ring.”
According to Sylvestre’s analysis, Safechuck, 42, was probably being truthful about the mock wedding, but levels of stress indicate he may not have been truthful about the “rewards” for sexual favors.
"That statement is truthful and is the least amount of deception he has, there is zero stress,” he said of the mock wedding. “That is really good in the fact there is a lot of detail and it's truthful."
He claimed the vows have “a little bit of stress, but he’s being truthful.”
As for the two being bonded forever, the stress jumps at "forever.”
“He had ninety percent stress in that response,” he said. “They may have been bonding, but him talking today would break that bond.”
As for receiving the ring and being into jewelry, “The statement yells out that I'm not sure he liked the ring, he wasn't necessarily being truthful. He would have been enamored by Michael, more than jewelry."
Sylvestre concluded Safechuck may not have been truthful about the reward for sexual acts.
“There may be embellishments here given it's the recollection of a 10-year-old and the sensitive nature of the claims,” the certified voice-stress analyst said.
As for Robson, 36, his statements also could have been “embellished.”
“He looks away at times when he is speaking, which tells me he may not be truthful,” he said. “Words like ‘physical’ and ‘intertwined’ may not be truthful. He goes back to being star struck and caught up in the moment.”
Jackson’s family has denied the allegations made in the documentary.
