LATEST: Michael Jackson has received more good news as he prepares to battle child molestation charges in court - his 12-year-old accuser is a reluctant witness.

HARVEY LEVIN, the producer of American TV's CELEBRITY JUSTICE who broke the latest scandal in America, claims young GAVIN ARVIZO isn't the willing witness the prosecution first thought he was.

Levin says, "This boy told a therapist that Michael Jackson fondled him in his private parts, but he's a very reluctant witness.

"He did not come out and spill his guts about what allegedly happened between him and Michael Jackson. We're told it literally had to be pulled out of him, first by attorney LARRY FELDMAN and then by a therapist, who ultimately got the story from the boy."
