“The Young and the Restless” actor Bryton James was one of Michael Jackson’s child pals, kids who went into Jackson’s orbit, stayed at Neverland, and traveled with the King of Pop.
In a new video interview with “General Hospital” actor Maurice Benard, James talks about those days, that nothing untoward happened, that he and his dad were invited to sleep in Michael’s two story bedroom at Neverland.
The Jackson part starts just around 10:30 in this video. Among other things, James says he knew two of the men who later accused Jackson of malfeasance, and shakes his head to indicate they made up their stories.
If only James had spoken about all this when Jackson was alive. It seems like he’s also in touch with Macaulay Culkin, and they’re on the same page. This is valuable testimony, albeit much too late.
Jackson fans will really want to listen to James on this subject, I think.
