Jackson Accuser Says Star Sexually Molested Him Twice


The teenage boy at the center of the latest Michael Jackson scandal says the pop star sexually molested him twice in the singer's bedroom.

The accuser, who testified in a California court Thursday, was a 13-year old cancer patient at the time of the alleged incidents. Mr. Jackson had invited him and his family for a visit in 2003.

The teen also testified that the entertainer urged him to drink wine aboard his private jet and hard liquor at the singer's ranch.

Mr. Jackson has denied all the charges against him.

Thursday's testimony came after the judge threatened to jail Mr. Jackson and revoke his bail when he arrived more than one hour late for court.

A Jackson spokesman said the star had been hospitalized for a serious back injury.
