“He never did anything to me. I never saw him do anything. And especially at this flash point in time, I’d have no reason to hold anything back. The guy has passed on. If anything—I’m not gonna say it would be stylish or anything like that, but right now is a good time to speak up. And if I had something to speak up about, I would totally do it. But no, I never saw anything; he never did anything,” he said.

Sources tell us the actor is likely to be called to the stand by Wade Robson and his legal team. As we previously reported, Robson sued Jackson’s companies in 2013 claiming he was sexually abused by the pop star as a child.

Wade’s lawsuit was dismissed in 2017 after a judge determined it was brought past the statute of limitations. A new law was enacted that extend the time for child victims to bring claims, which revived Robson’s case in 2019.

In 2021, a Los Angeles Superior Court judge ruled Jackson’s companies had no legal duty to protect Robson from any alleged harm. Robson, who has worked as a choreographer for Britney Spears, appealed the decision.

Earlier this week, The California Court of Appeal reversed the lower court’s decision to dismiss the case. As a result, the lawsuit will head to trial.

In his lawsuit, Robson claimed he became friends with Jackson as a child. He said the singer sexually abused him from the age of 7 to 12.

Wade Robson claims he was molested at the age of seven inside the Neverland Ranch.

In the shocking complaint, Robson said the first alleged sexual advance happened in the singer's room in 1990, while his older sister sleeping nearby.

Robson claimed he was raped by Jackson who on a separate occasion allegedly forced him to pose naked on all fours like a dog while he masturbated.

The accuser said Jackson told him: "We can never tell anyone."

Jackson's estate has questioned the credibility of Robson and Safechuck and denied their accusations.
