Molested? no. Had mental issues and boundary issues? Absolutely. just like a lot of other child stars do. Sure there are a handful that make it through, but many of them are messed up and meet a tragic end.

It's not like he had a choice. He had vitiligo. There is no cure. It's the reason why he started wearing one glove. I don't doubt that contributed to his self hate. It can do a number on you mentally.

i don't believe he did it. i believe the media turned against Michael. maybe Michael turned agaist the industry so they went after him. i think they used the media to mess up his repuation. making him look crazy. the media always does that. then Michael ends up dead.

Michael Jackson suffered from a stunted childhood, I think. Therefore, he preferred the company of kids, to whom he could better relate, but he was stupid for having them on his ranch and in his home. I think he was one weird dude. However, when you're an entertainer that made a career out of being quirky (unlike someone like Michael Buble or Josh Groban), then that must take a real toll on someone. For him, the toll was similar and analogous to Whitney's.

Only MJ and the kids know for sure, anything else is just pure speculation.

Having them on his ranch was good. It was equipped for kids with diseases like cancer. He only wanted to give them hope. A lot of people don't realize that he did that also when he still lived with his parents in Encino. I agree with you about letting them stay in his private house though. He was too nice to those kids when they asked to sleep in his room. He just couldn't say no to them.

I think he was naive to place himself in the position of being accused, but no, I don't think so.
It seems he was a good and caring father, even though he was definitely weird in many ways.

i think he was molested and raped many times as a child and turned into a freak and did not know right from wrong when it came to socializing with kids due to his own demons

Because sometimes it's easier to settle for a small amount (in this case, it was to him at the time) than to have this long, drawn out, even more expensive situation.

Honestly, he was such a weirdo, of course everyone's mind went straight to that...

I never believed it. Was he weird? Strange? Damaged? Yes. I never got the stranger danger vibe from him, though.

i dont think he did. i mean if i was a molester no time would i ever say "i sleep in the bed with children" because i wouldn't want people to suspect me, under no circumstances, i would probably fake like i hate children all together. anyway the first accuser dad came out and said it wasn't true and committed suicide a few months later.
