Home Uncategorized Michael Jackson Defended By Former Employee From Mid 90s

Scottie Shaffer worked for Michael Jackson from approximately 1992 to 1997. He was known around Neverland by the nickname “House.” Shaffer went off to start his own business- he does product placement for movies and is very successful. But he always stayed friendly with all the Jacksons. He’s invited to a Jackson wedding this summer, in fact. And Scottie is outraged by Wade Robson’s accusations that Michael molested him.

“For all the time I was in the inner circle, working for Michael, I never observed any inappropriate behavior. It’s impossible for me to believe,” Shaffer told me the other night.

Scottie started working for Michael in late 1992, when the “Black and White” video was shot. He stayed until 1997-98. He was present through the whole debacle with Jordan Chandler. He was also there as Jackson entertained many kids at Neverland. His title was Special Projects Coordinator. Shaffer was with Michael when they met Omer Bhatti, the kid who Michael later referred to as his son, and who now uses that distinction to stay with the Jacksons. (He is not in any way related to them.)

“People are just after the money now,” Shaffer says. “And it sickens me.”

Shaffer– who’s a nice guy and a straight shooter– also adds that the Robsons didn’t spend that much time at Neverland. His website is www.turnkeyproductionllc.com

  1. The thing is, what ever happened between Robson and Jackson (and I doubt very much anything inappropriate happened), does NOT absolve AEG from its recklessness against Michael Jackson in connection with This Is It. And their recklessness is shocking. I believed they were insensitive at the most, but it was far, far worse, as you can tell from testimonies at the trial. Not only does the contract appear to be dubious, and not only were AEG showing MJ contempt, but they resorted to invading his home, threaten him with losing everything if he didn’t show up, force earpieces into his ears that hurt him, even used physical force to make him rehearse. And they totally ignored the confused and emaciated state he was in.

    The costume-maker Michael Bush said he could see MJ’s heart beat in his chest through the skin, fans reported that when they saw him remove his jacket he was a skeleton, and one producer screamed to Ortega on the phone shortly before MJ passed: “He is dying! He is dying!” MJ was beyond the ability to defend himself, and no one dared defying AEG by calling an ambulance.

    Word got out that MJ was sick, but Ortega and Phillips went on camera smilingly saying he was just fine, which was a lie, and Phillips even added he’d like to “have Michael’s body”. I saw that interview.

    While I doubted this trial should happen, mainly because it could traumatize Michael’s children, I am convinced these things need to come out, and I do see AEG as a guilty part in Michael Jackson’s death. Slinging mud on him on top of that guilt won’t help them.

  3. The timing is very suspicious. I personally believe that this allegation is crap! It is to distract people from the truth in the trial, to trash Jackson’s name and make the public believe that Michael is a monster while AEG is on trial. This is part of the dirty laundry scheme to distract the public’s and the jury’s attention. AEG is a big fish, faced with a mutli-billion law suit – so I would expect they are doing everything to win the case.

    I may be wrong, but the way I see it is that AEG has thrown a stink bomb into the crowd and to make us busy with it and leave a trail of inuendos. I read that Wade Robson is late and passed the due date for filing a creditor’s claim. I don’t think that the aim here is to win or get money from the Jckson Estate. I think there has been a deal made already between Wade Robson and AEG. I think both parties (Robson and AEG) certainly know that the likelihood of the judge trashing this allegation- is very high. I think the goal really here is to hit and run and leave a trail of ugly inuendos on Michael Jackson, to distract the public and give the jury a bad impression of Michael Jackson.

    I also think that the Jackson Estate made the biggest mistake in filing the wrongful death suit against AEG for $40Billion! They should know better that this would just open doors to more innuendos, accusations, etc. that may not be true. (unless of course the Estate only cares for money).

  4. “Scottie started working for Michael in late 1992, when the “Black and White” video was shot.” —The song is called “Black or White” and the video was shot in late summer 1991, shortly before the single was released.

What do you think?
