Jackson 'showered with boy', claims ex-maid
13:30 06 April 2005
Michael Jackson showered with a boy of eight at his Neverland Ranch home, the star's former maid told his abuse trial yesterday (05.04.05).
Blanca Francia claimed she once caught the singer and young friend Wade Robson "laughing and giggling" in the bathroom of a luxury suite.
She said she entered Jackson's private bedroom to clean it.
She revealed: "There was one time I walked into the bedroom - at first I thought they were playing in the bathtub or Jacuzzi but I did not see them. But on my way out, I peeked into the bathroom and they were in the shower."
She said although the shower door was steamed up she could make out Jackson and Wade's silhouettes. She also spotted the star's white briefs on the floor alongside the boy's neon green Spiderman underpants.
Wade, 22 - now a dancer and former choreographer to Britney Spears -struck up a friendship with Jackson after winning a dancing competition in 1987.
Meanwhile, Francia's son has claimed he was abused by Jackson from the age of seven.
The 24-year-old man earlier this week sobbed as he described how the singer had "tickled his privates" as they watched cartoons.
Jackson denies all charges against him.
