Michael Jackson Raises Eyebrows After Late Icon’s Name Is Discovered In Unsealed Lawsuit Regarding Notorious Sex Offender Jeffrey Epstein
Legendary pop singer Michael Jackson was mentioned in newly-released court documents connected to Jeffrey Epstein.
As previously reported, financier Jeffrey Epstein has been infamously accused of sexually abusing and trafficking a slew of underage girls since 2005.
Following years of shocking allegations, Jeffrey Epstein committed suicide in 2019. However, the numerous investigations and lawsuit proceedings surrounding the acts still live in the headlines today.
Recently, filings from Epstein accuser Virginia Giuffre’s case against his former partner, Ghislaine Maxwell, were revealed to the public.
If you didn’t know, Giuffre sued Maxwell for defamation in 2015. The lawsuit came after Maxwell’s response to Giuffre’s claims that she aided Epstein in trafficking and sexually assaulting her when she was a minor.
Along with Bill Clinton, Donald Trump, and many others, deceased star Michael Jackson was spotted in the records. His name reportedly appeared during a 2016 deposition given by Epstein’s alleged victim, massage therapist Johanna Sjoberg.
The question read:
“Did you ever meet anybody famous when you were with Jeffrey?”
“I met Michael Jackson.”
The text furthered:
“Oh, really? And where was that?”
“At [Jeffrey’s] house in Palm Beach.”
When asked if she’d serviced Michael Jackson, she said:
“I did not.”
Although the interaction was brief, the internet exploded with opinions after seeing Jackson’s name in the documents.
The exact reason behind Jackson’s visit to Epstein’s home is unclear. It’s important to note that all individuals mentioned in the suit aren’t guilty of wrongdoing.
Deemed the ‘King of Pop,’ the Gary, Indiana native passed in 2009. He was 50.
Throughout his notable career, Jackson faced many child sex abuse claims, which led to the controversial documentary Leaving Neverland in 2019. The film focused on alleged victims Wade Robson and James Safechuck.
