Choreographer Wade Robson's allegations that he was sexually abused as a child by Michael Jackson are to go before a court next year (14).

Wade testified on behalf of the Thriller hitmaker at his 2005 child molestation trial, but has since changed his story and claims Jackson molested him for seven years when he was a child and that he was 'brainwashed' by the singer to defend him in court.

Now the case is to go before a court in the U.S. on 2 June next year (14) to determine whether or not Robson's claim against Jackson's estate has any merit.

Representatives for the estate argue that Robson's bid is too far past the deadline for claims and is undermined by the fact the singer is now deceased, writing, "Any further investigation into the factual allegations of the Petition will necessarily be compromised considerably by the untimeliness of the allegations."

Jackson was killed by an overdose of the anaesthetic Propofol in June, 2009. Dr. Conrad Murray is currently serving a jail sentence for involuntary manslaughter for administering the drug.
