(Agence France-Presse) A Los Angeles man is seeking damages from the estate of Michael Jackson, alleging the late "King of Pop" sexually abused him as a child during the late 1980s.
James Safechuck, 36, claims Jackson abused him on about 100 occasions over a four-year period, after the two appeared in a cola commercial when he was 10-years-old.
Filings by Safechuck's attorneys allege Jackson, who died in 2009, "brainwashed" the youngster into believing the abuses were "acts of love." The documents said Safechuck regularly shared Jackson's bed during the singer's Bad tour in 1988, and the abuse continued until he reached puberty.
