Michael Jackson's ex-wife and the mother of his two eldest kids has come to the King of Pop's defence amid a fresh child molestation scandal, insisting dancer and choreographer Wade Robson's new allegations will not tarnish the pop superstar's legacy.
Robson testified during the late singer's 2005 molestation trial that he was never sexually abused while staying at Jackson's homes in California and Las Vegas but has recently revealed he was not being completely honest in court.
He is now suing the late superstar's estate, claiming he was a victim of abuse.
But Debbie Rowe insists Robson, who appeared on TV in America on Thursday (16May13) and spoke candidly about his molestation claims, is not telling the truth.
She tells TMZ.com, "I was angered that Wade Robson reversed his sworn testimony from court in 2005, and now claims to be a victim of sexual abuse... His publicity-seeking attempt is opportunistic and just oozes falseness.
"It will be quickly forgotten, and will do nothing, nothing to tarnish Michael's extraordinary legacy."
Robson claims Jackson molested him at his homes from the time he was seven to the age of 14.
