Michael Jackson Sexual Abuse Accuser Loses Lawsuit
A US judge has ruled in favor of the late Michael Jackson and dismissed claims from one of his accusers.
James Safechuck, 42, claimed he and other children were abused due to the negligence of Michael Jackson’s companies, however, the case was dismissed by a judge who said the companies weren’t responsible.
James Safechuck claimed he was abused, starting at the age of 10 years old. In 2014, James Safechuck sued MJJ Productions and MJJ Ventures for allowing the abuse to happen.
Safechuck has become one of the more notable voices who have spoken out against Jackson. He made an appearance in the Leaving Neverland documentary produced in 2019 as one of two men that accused Michael Jackson of abuse.
Safechuck alleged he was abused hundreds of times at the late pop star homes. While there have been several claims of sexual abuse against Michale Jackson, there have also been several who have come out in support of the singer such as Macaulay Culkin.
It’s unknown the amount of damages that Mr. Safechuck is seeking, however, reportedly he is set to appeal the decision. Though vocal in later years, originally Safechuck reportedly served as a witness and defended Jackson against sexual abuse allegations when they first began in 1993.
