Marlon Brando Spoke About Michael Jackson’s Sexuality And Child Abuse Accusations In Unearthed Interview
We’re beside ourselves with this revelation!
A new podcast, Telephone Stories: The Trials of Michael Jackson, is revealing in its final episode an unearthed transcript from Marlon Brando, who spoke voluntarily with prosecutors about Michael Jackson in 1994.
During that time, the singer was being investigated on allegations of child molestation. In the statement to prosecutors, the actor shared details of a dinner conversation he said he had with Michael that touched on the singer’s relationship with his father as well as his sexuality.
Brandon Ogborn, one of the podcast’s creator-producers, got ahold of a transcript of the interview, dated March 14, 1994. As The Los Angeles Times reports, Brandon verified its validity and it turned out legit.
Check out some of the excerpts from Marlon’s statement, originally pulled by Page Six:
- “I had asked him if he was a virgin and he sort of laughed and giggled, and he called me Brando. He said, ‘Oh, Brando.’ I said, ‘Well, what do you do for sex?’ And he was acting fussy and embarrassed.”
- “He said he hated his father and started to cry. So I pulled back. I started to tiptoe. I realized that he was in trouble with his life because he was living in a never-never land.”
- “We were talking about human emotions and where it all comes from. I could see from the way he behaved … he speaks in a very peculiar way for a man who is as old as my oldest son, 35. And he didn’t want me to swear.”
- “I said, ‘Well, who are your friends?’ He said, ‘I don’t know anybody my own age. I don’t like anybody my own age.’ I said, ‘Why not?’ He said, ‘I don’t know, I don’t know.’ He was crying hard enough that … I tried to assuage him. I tried to help him all I could.”
- “With this mode of behavior that’s been going on, I think it’s pretty reasonable to conclude that he may have had something to do with kids. My impression was that he didn’t want to answer because he was frightened to answer me.”
