'Michael Jackson Replaced Me With Macaulay Culkin' Wade Robson Says In 'Leaving Neverland'
Wade Robson told his story of alleged sexual abuse at the hands of Michael Jackson in the first part of the HBO documentary Leaving Neverland. Though the documentary premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, March 3, 2019, was the first time cable subscribers were able to hear the claims. Two men appeared in the movie: Wade Robson and James "Jimmy" Safechuck. Both had similar stories of how the alleged molestation and sexual abuse took place.
Both had similar accounts of feeling discarded and used once Michael Jackson apparently tired of them and moved on to the next child.
For Wade Robson, that next child was allegedly Macaulay Culkin.
Wade Robson told his story of grooming, a technique commonly used by pedophiles to gain a child's trust, and how for quite some time, his relationship with Michael Jackson was the most important thing in his life.
Originally from Australia, Robson's mother took her soon to America to start a life a new, believing that stardom was destined for her young boy who for a moment in time was referred to as "Little One" by Michael Jackson.
According to Robson, this term of endearment occurred during the time span he was being sexually abused by Michael Jackson without his parents' knowledge.
Robson said when he moved from Australia to America, Michael Jackson had replaced him with Macaulay Culkin.
Macaulay Culkin is currently the godfather to Paris Jackson and has always denied that Michael Jackson sexually abused him.
Michael Jackson was always surrounded by fans, but he did have a special child friend whom he would be photographed with.
Macaulay Culkin has been asked numerous times to speak in length about his relationship with Michael Jackson and he has always denied any sexual misconduct.
Another child actor friend of Michael Jackson's who always said that MJ never sexually abused, molested, or behaved inappropriately with him is actor Corey Feldman.
Still, for many people who have watched the first part of the documentary and shared their reactions on social media, they simply aren't buying it.
Twitter is full of comments from people who are calling out Michael Jackson as a pedophile and are showing their support for both Wade Robson and Jimmy Safechuck.
Both men will appear on the special After Neverland on March 4, 2019, hosted by Oprah Winfrey, following the conclusion of Leaving Neverland .
