The World King of Pop Music and also a Music legend Michael Jackson was Captured in a Astonishing Vidoe Deposition Squirming, quoting and giggling.
Squirming in his seat, Michael Jackson is asked directly on camera whether he’s a pedophile in newly unearthed video footage obtained by DailyMailTV.
The King of Pop is quizzed by lawyers about allegations of child sexual abuse in what’s understood to be the only time he was ever filmed being questioned on the subject during his life.
The iconic singer, who at the time was 37, appears nervous and laughs, giggles and jokes his way through questions about molesting children in the astonishing footage dated March 1, 1996.
The video comes as a documentary, shown at the Sundance Film Festival, features Jackson’s former child companions Wade Robson and James Safechuck claiming the star raped and sexually abused the pair during sleepovers at his Neverland ranch.
In Leaving Neverland, Robson and Safechuck reveal lurid details of how Jackson allegedly groomed them before engaging in sexual acts.
DailyMailTV’s newly obtained video footage spanning hours shows Jackson being grilled over the claims and highlights his extremely odd reactions to the serious allegations.
The disturbing footage shows Jackson giggling just seconds after he was questioned on the molesting allegations against youngsters Macaulay Culkin, Jordan Chandler and Brett Barnes – the trio who were regular visitors to Jackson’s Neverland ranch.
The video sees Jackson squirm and uncomfortably shuffle in his seat as he was deposed by an attorney over the child sex abuse allegations as part of a lawsuit filed by five Neverland employees against Jackson for wrongful dismissal.
The group – who became known as the new Jackson 5 – asked their lawyer to cross examine Jackson about his behavior and management practice at the ranch.
A key argument from the five’s lawyer Michael Ring was that Jackson had threatened staff, who saw him act inappropriately with children.
In 1995, Jackson ducked a court grilling after giving $20 million to Chandler not to testify against him in court.
He also refused to take the stand in the Gavin Arvizo case in 2005.
But in this video the star has no choice but to be quizzed over the abuse allegations.
The wealthy star was aided by advisor Steve Cochrane and another legal advisor Zia Modabber, while Ring was joined by his co-counsel Ruth Ann Niosi.
It was filmed at The Four Seasons Hotel in New York on March 1, 1996.
