Michael Jackson’s niece, Brandi Jackson dated Wade Robson for about 7 years – partly during the relevant period about which Robson now alleges that Michael Jackson sexually abused him and that he was “in love” with Michael Jackson and Michael Jackson was “in love” with him. Except, Jackson set them up, according to Brandi!
You did not have a chance to learn about this information in “Leaving Neverland”, because it was never mentioned. Nor it was ever mentioned in Robson’s court papers.
But Brandi talked about it in interviews after Leaving Neverland aired. We also learn from these interviews that when Michael Jackson died in 2009, the Robsons desperately tried to take custody of Michael’s orphaned children, which is weird, considering they did not really have much contact with them and they were not named in Jackson’s Will as possible guardians.
Was this another opportunistic move by the Robsons? The guardian of Jackson’s children would be handsomely paid by Jackson’s Estate and at the time Joy Robson was caught in the 2009 housing crash, according to her own deposition.
Listen to Brandi’s interview with John Ziegler:
In a subsequent interview, Leaving Neverland director Dan Reed tried to discredit and ridicule Brandi by saying “Well it doesn’t make sense does it? She’s saying they were together for 7 years.. Wade met Amanda [Wade’s wife] when he was 18 or 19… maybe even younger. So that would have meant that Brandi was in a sexual relationship with Wade from the age of 12. Really? Joy said they were childhood sweethearts and she would drop Wade off at Brandi’s house. But I don’t think they were living together at the age of 12 or 13, were they? That doesn’t make much sense. Also the intense period of Wade’s – it’s terrible to say it, but sexual relationship with Michael Jackson was from the age of 7 to the age of 9. That was again, if you like, to use a dreadful word, the honeymoon period. The period when they were really seeing each other a lot and he makes it clear in the film he doesn’t really see Michael much after that. They had occasional meetings where they follow the old pattern and end up having sex but it is conceivable that Jackson had other relationships and Wade could have as well.The fact that he was boyfriend and girlfriend with Brandi at the age of 12 or 13 doesn’t mean that he wasn’t seeing Jackson, too. I don’t really follow that logic.” 
Answers to Reed:
1) Brandi Jackson never claimed she and Wade had a sexual relationship from the age of 12. In actuality, she stated just the contrary. That their relationship was always very age appropriate and that they waited to have sex until she turned 18. (Wade on the other hand apparently cheated on her with other girls and women before.)
2) Brandi Jackson never claimed that she and Wade lived together at the age of 12-13. Reed is misrepresenting here statements.
3) Now, this one is interesting:
“Also the intense period of Wade’s – it’s terrible to say it, but sexual relationship with Michael Jackson was from the age of 7 to the age of 9. That was again, if you like, to use a dreadful word, the honeymoon period. The period when they were really seeing each other a lot and he makes it clear in the film he doesn’t really see Michael much after that.”
The fact is that when Wade was 7-9 years old, the Robsons still lived in Australia. They only occasionally went to the USA and met Jackson. After their first visit in February 1990, when they contacted Jackson, there were two other visits they had in the USA before finally moving there in September 1991: one in May 1990 – this was for the purpose of the shooting of the LA Gear commercial and the Robsons stayed in the USA for six weeks. This is when Wade first met Brandi at the set of the commercial. And there was another visit in February 1991 – just one week.
So this is the period that Reed calls in this interview “the honeymoon period” and claims that Jackson and Robson “were seeing each other a lot”. No, they were not! The Robsons still lived in Australia and most of their interactions were through faxes and phone calls (the film tries to twist those faxes and calls into something sinister, but as we have addressed it here, that is just another way how this movie manipulates the viewer).
As Joy Robson testified in her 2016 deposition, after they moved to the USA in September 1991, when Wade was 9, Jackson did not want to spend as much time with him as the Robsons would have wanted. Wade wanted to go on tour with him, but Jackson would not take him. One time Joy Robson cut Jackson off for six months and that was because she got angry with him that he did not call Wade from the Dangerous Tour.
It was Joy who always had to chase around Jackson to put Wade in projects, such as his Jam video. Wade “felt pushed aside”, according to Joy’s deposition.
So as you can see, Wade and Jackson actually never really spent that much time together!
4) “…it is conceivable that Jackson had other relationships and Wade could have as well.The fact that he was boyfriend and girlfriend with Brandi at the age of 12 or 13 doesn’t mean that he wasn’t seeing Jackson, too. I don’t really follow that logic”.
Well, the whole narrative of Leaving Neverland is that Wade (and James Safechuck too) was so much in love with Jackson all these years that it was the reason for why they kept their alleged abuse to themselves for so many years. Considering that narrative, it is certainly weird that while being “in love” with Jackson, Wade would look for other relationships. It is also weird that Jackson, who was also allegedly “in love” with Wade (and who, according to Safechuck, taught boys to hate females and talked them out of having girlfriends), would set him up with his own niece.
