The suit alleges that Jackson began molesting Mr. Safechuck in his Paris hotel room at the start of his “Bad” tour and the sexual abuse continued for several years until the victim reached puberty.
“This case exhibits the same disturbing fact patterns as the case involving Wade Robson who is also a client of our firm. MJJ Productions and MJJ Ventures ensnared Mr. Safechuck in this sexual abuse operation at the tender age of 10, causing him long term damage that haunts him until this day,” said victim’s attorney Vince Finaldi.
In addition to abusing Mr. Safechuck, the complaint alleges that Michael Jackson induced Mr. Safechuck to testify on Jackson’s behalf in the 1993 criminal investigation of the alleged sexual abuse of Jordan Chandler. That case was dropped following a payment to Jordan Chandler by Michael Jackson of an undisclosed amount.
The complaint further alleges that Michael Jackson contacted Mr. Safechuck in 2005 and attempted to convince him and his mother to give false testimony in Jackson’s Santa Barbara sex abuse criminal trial. According to the complaint Jackson threatened to reveal Safechuck’s “perjury” in the Chandler case when he refused to provide false testimony in the Santa Barbaracriminal trial.
