ORIGINAL: Michael Jackson's nephew says that the late King of Pop helped him cope with a molestation incident. Taj Jackson, who is Tito Jackson's soon, took to Twitter to refute allegations by Wade Robson that Michael sexually abused him.
Taj revealed via his Twitter account that he was molested by a family member on his mother's side as a child, posting the following through a series of tweets:
What people will $ay and do for money and to $tay relevant is $ickening. De$perate times call for De$perate mea$ures. I will not sit back and let someone flat out lie about my uncle. PERIOD. I am writing these words knowing that the minute I press send, my life will never be the same afterwards…I was sexually abuse. By an uncle on my mom's side of the family when I was a kid.
My uncle [Michael] was a support system for me and my mom. He wrote a letter to her that many have seen already, u just didn't know what it was about. That is how I KNOW Wade is lying. Because I AM a survivor. My hands are still trembling. Don't forget I was living at Neverland when Wade testified during my uncle's case. I sat there and ate dinner with him and his family. I will not let them smear my Uncle's legacy. #Followthetrail
Taj added a picture of a note that Michael wrote for his mother, which reads, ""Dee Dee please read this article about child molestation and please read it to Taj (and his siblings) ... it brings out how even your own relatives can be molesters of children, even uncles or aunts molesting nephews or nieces. Please Read. Love MJ."
