Michael Jackson had been a suspected pedophile for years. Several people came forward accusing Jackson of abuse. A man named James Safechuck claimed that Jackson molested him after the two of them did a Pepsi commercial together. He said the abuse persisted for several years. It supposedly began when James was ten, and then continued until he was fifteen.
Workers at Neverland Ranch attested to the fact that James was a regular guest there. One manager said he saw Jackson with his hands down the boy’s pants in the jacuzzi and he claims to have witnessed Jackson manipulating his genitals. However, because James never admitted to the abuse, allegations were dropped.
