a��Michael Jackson used secret code words for sex, it has been claimed.
Lawyers acting for 36-year-old James Safechuck – who co-starred with the late King of Pop in a commercial in the 1980s – have filed court documents asking he be allowed to file a claim against the Thriller hitmakera��s estate after being molested nearly 100 times over a four-year period until he hit puberty and the documents contain a number of claims against the star.
The documents allege the accuser regularly shared the singera��s bed and revealed Michael used code words for sex such as calling semen a�?duck buttera�? and describing an erection as a�?bright light, brick citya�?.
According to TMZ, Safechuck also alleges the singer used secret signals and when they held hands, the Beat It star – who died of acute Propofol intoxication in June 2009 – would scratch the inside of his hand with a finger to show he wanted sex.
Other claims in the documents include Michael performing a secret wedding ceremony complete with a ring and marriage certificate with his alleged victim.
A lawyer acting for the estate insists the claims should be dismissed as they have been made so late, and because Safechuck has previously insisted nothing happened with the singer.
a�?This is a person that made his claim five years after Michael died, more than 20 years after the incidents supposedly happened and has given sworn testimony that Michael never did anything inappropriate to him,a�? said Howard Weitzman.
The petition will be heard in court on September 4.
Michael Jacksona��s Neverland is set to be put up for sale by a company that became his managing partner on the property before his death.
The superstar had not lived at Neverland Ranch for years before he passed away, but still owned part of the estate with Colony Capital, whose deal saw them gain a greater share of equity for the property with every dollar invested into it.
According to Forbes, Michaela��s estate are devastated at the idea of Neverland passing out of the familya��s ownership, but Colony Capital have the right to sell it whenever they want.
A representative from Michaela��s estate said: a�?We are frustrated, bitterly disappointed and saddened that it has come to this. Sadly, Michael lost control of Neverland during his life as a result of advice from a former manager.a�?
Before his death, Michael had been thinking about turning Neverland into a school for performing arts and since he died, it has been suggested that it could run as a fan attraction similar to Elvis Presleya��s Graceland, although its location in Los Olivos, California, is difficult to access.
The estate representative continued: a�?The Estate explored numerous options, including a purchase.
a�?But financial, land use and zoning restrictions have made all of the proposed options prohibitive given our duty as executors to be fiscally responsible in protecting and growing the assets of the Estate for Michaela��s children.a�? – Online
