With a four-hour documentary accusing Michael Jackson of sexual abuse set to premiere on HBO this weekend, Inside Edition revisited an exclusive interview with the late pop star's personal maid.
“I would walk in and there would be boys laying in his bed with him,” Adrian McManus, who worked at Neverland Ranch, claimed to Inside Edition in 2013.
Accusations against Jackson are again in the spotlight as HBO prepares to air the explosive documentary "Leaving Neverland" this weekend. It centers on two men who accuse Jackson of sexually abusing them as children.
When the four-hour documentary premiered at Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, it stunned audiences with its accusations and prompted protests in support of Jackson.
Variety called it "devastatingly powerful."
"I think, the fault on my uncle was he just, he didn't have that bone in his body to look at it the other way. And I think that was the thing, is that his naiveté was his downfall in a way," Taj said.
But McManus, who started working for Jackson in 1993, painted a different picture when she spoke to Inside Edition in 2013. “I'd walk in his room and his underwears would be floating in the Jacuzzi. He had a Jacuzzi in his bedroom. They'd be floating in the water with the little boys' underwears,” she claimed.
She also alleged that she was warned by a Jackson employee to never to reveal what she saw — or else.
“He said, ‘You know what, Adrian? If you ever go on a talk show or a TV show, we can hire a hit man, have your neck slit. They'll never find your body. We can hire a sniper to take you out,’” she claimed.
The maid testified against Jackson in his 2005 molestation trial, claiming she saw him fondle Macaulay Culkin.
Culkin denied that allegation, while Jackson himself called her a disgruntled ex-employee.
Jackson was found not guilty. He died in 2009.
