A housekeeper who once described seeing Wade Robson in the shower with Michael Jackson may be the key to the former’s claims of molestation.
Blanca Francia’s testimony during Jackson’s 2005 child molestation trial included a graphic account of MJ showering naked with a young Wade Robson.
Francia described seeing Michael’s underwear on the floor outside the Neverland Ranch shower, as well as Wade’s child-sized neon green underwear.
Forget what he thinks of Kim Kardashian, Kanye West is awesome.
Earlier this week, the rapper dedicated a song to his baby mama during a concert in New York City, while also taking time to rant against the paparazzi and declare that he isn’t any kind of real celebrity.
He also went off on the question of whether he would perform a sketch on tomorrow night’s Saturday Night Live season finale to “humanize” himself. The short answer? Probably not.
“I ain’t here to apologize to no mother—-ers, man,” he says in the following video. “It ain’t about me humanizing myself. At what point did IMore >
Edward Furlong has been arrested. Stop us if you’ve heard this one.
This time, police say the troubled Terminator 2 star blew off a restraining order, got into a verbal altercation with his former girlfriend, and got popped.
His ex called the cops from her West Hollywood home.
When law enforcement personnel arrived at the residence, they apparently found the 35-year-old Furlong hiding under a stairwell near the property.
Furlong was taken into custody for violating the restraining order (a felony), which is in place because he has (twice) been arrested for girlfriendMore >
Michael Jackson’s nephew Taj has come forward to say HE was molested as a child – by a family member on his mother’s side of the family, not a Jackson.
Taj Jackson, the son of Michael’s brother Tito Jackson, says that Michael personally consoled him after the incident, and that Wade Robson is a liar.
Taj, 29, claimed on Twitter that he’s in a unique position to judge Wade’s sexual abuse allegations against Michael because he knows what it’s like:
“That is how I KNOW Wade is lying. Because I AM a survivor. I was sexually abuse (sic).”
“By [a family member] on my mom’s side ofMore >
So Kanye West walks into a bar … and BAM! That’s gotta hurt!
No, really, he did. A street sign, to be specific. He and Kim Kardashian were out and about in Beverly Hills when the rapper wasn’t looking in front of him.
Walking with his head to avoid getting his picture taken, he plowed into a pole (holding a Wrong Way sign, amusingly enough), and it clearly didn’t feel good.Kanye West Walks Into Pole
Kanye clenched his head in pain, then appeared to compose himself and leave without incident as his very pregnant baby mama tried to console him.
However, the inevitable tantrumMore >
In addition to Wade Robson’s allegations, Michael Jackson’s life is back in the news this week because of his family’s wrongful death lawsuit against AEG Live.
Then again, MJ’s former attorney suggested this week that Robson may have been motivated to come forward by AEG, his former concert promoter.
In any case, days before his death, the King of Pop told Kenny Ortega, the producer of the ill-fated This Is It tour, that “God keeps talking to me.”
Ortega and associate producer Alif Sankey testified that they became increasingly alarmed at Jackson’s frail appearance during hisMore >
Wade Robson, through his attorney, is elaborating on his recent sexual abuse claim against the late Michael Jackson, who he calls an abusive monster.
One who threatened and brainwashed him, no less.
Henry Gradstein tells TMZ that Wade Robson, 30, was molested by the King of Pop at Neverland Ranch and his other homes between ages 7 and 14.
As for why Wade didn’t come forward until now – and even testified under oath that Michael was innocent, as Jackson’s lawyers pointed out immediately?

Fresh off a speeding ticket in Dubai, Justin Bieber may be facing real charges at home.
Insiders confirm to TMZ that the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department is pushing the District Attorney to prosecute the singer on battery charges, following his actions earlier this year concerning a neighbor in California.
Bieber is accused of screaming and spitting at the man.
Investigators are not looking to send Justin to prison, but rather to send a message.
They believe he’s in need of counseling due to a series of poor choices and bad – often illegal – behavior.
To be specific, lawMore >

Yet despite this exciting news, the rapper was in no mood to celebrate during a concert in London last night, taking a break between songs to go off on business people… the Grammys… and Justin Timberlake.
“I got love for Hov,” Kanye said of his good pal Jay-Z. “But I ain’t f-cking with that ‘Suit & Tie.’”
Jay-Z and Timberlake are headed on tour this summer, of course. We wonder if this will affect West’s friendship with his Throne co-sitter.

Dr. Conrad Murray will testify in the Michael Jackson wrongful death lawsuit filed by Katherine Jackson, who is looking to collect damages from AEG.
Michael’s mother wants Murray to testify about comments he made in his documentary, in which Murray said AEG honchos told him MJ was on “death skid row.”
AEG, Murray claimed, boasted in 2009 that it owned “the toilet paper he wipes his ass with” and “the f**kin’ popsicles that his children are sucking on.”
Referring to his ill-fated This Is It concert dates, the promoter allegedly told Murray, Jackson’s physician, “if he doesn’t getMore >

Money for Hurricane Sandy relief was not the only thing raised in Madison Square Garden last night.
So were many eyebrows in response to Kanye West’s attire.
Despite performances by The Rolling Stones; Roger Waters and Eddie Vedder; Bon Jovi and many others, the rapper was the talk of Twitter not long after his performance. But not for anything he said or sang.
For the leather skirt he wore:
The outfit has already inspired a Twitter account (@KanyesSkirt), as well as questions over whether West raided the wardrobe of Kim Kardashian.
