Some more details on the accusation...
TMZ reports that James Safechuck has provided more details on his claim that Michael Jackson molested him as a child. His lawyer, Maryann Marzano, said that Jackson "publicly flaunted" his relationship with Safechuck by making it look like they were friends and Safechuck was his protege. In private, Jackson was allegedly molesting him.
Safechuck, who appeared with Jackson in a 1987 Pepsi commercial, claims Jackson touched him inappropriately for years. Estate attorney Howard Weitzman said the claims were "false and scurrilous."
Marzano said that Jackson was "narcissistic" and would keep Safechuck from going to school (when he was 10 and 11) so he could be available to Jackson when he was on tour.
Marzano said the case was "airtight" and added: "If there is still any question about the predatory nature of Michael Jackson's so-called ‘friendships' with young boys, it should be laid to rest by the indisputable facts of what Michael did to James Safechuck."
