Images That Michael Jackson’s Lawyers Don’t Want You To See

By molly atherton 7 months ago
Ah, the mysterious allure of forbidden visuals! Imagine delving into the enigmatic world of Michael Jackson through a clandestine lens, where the curtains are drawn, and the secrets remain concealed.

1. This Is Michael Jackson's Actual Mugshot...

Of course, the police collect information about somebody who is on trial. And so this picture shows Jackson's mugshot against his details held in the police file.(Image Source/ case was revolved around the accusations from Gavin Arvizo a 13-year-old boy. Within the web of legal proceedings and the accusations, this particular image emerges.Original content sourced from

2. The Singer Greets Fans Waiting At His Trial

Here Michael Jackson is waving to his fans as he arrived for his trial. As we know, his trial was due to the accusations of child molestation.(Image Source/ was held at the Santa Barbara County Superior Court in Santa Maria. In this poignant image lies a snapshot that encapsulates the paradox of fame.

3. Many People Don't Know That He Had A Casual Girlfriend!

Here Michael Jackson is with Brooke Shields who he was casually dating at the time. The two of them were attending the Grammys together.(Image source/ only is he pictured with Brooke, but also the very young actor Emmanuel Lewis who he is carrying in his arms, a glimpse into the private sphere of Michael Jackson.

4. The Singer Looks Super Stressed

This is the only photo during the trial where he actually looks stressed. You can see in his facial expression as he adjusts his glasses to his face...(Image Source/ MichaelJacksonpictures)That he is not as calm as his entry to the court made him appear. But we suppose anyone would be stressed when they're about to go into court, guilty or not...

5. Michael Jackson looks SO Different Before Surgery

Here is Michael on a plane journey, he is sat next to this young girl. This photo was before Michael's transformation and many, many operations.               (Image source/ fanpop)That totally changed his appearance forever. A lot of people questioned this move and thought it was very strange, especially due to the change in skin color.

6. He Fist Pumps The Camera

Here again, he is walking into the court. he's wearing a white suit which most people will recognise. He's making a fist at the camera whilst smiling.(Image Source/ MichaelJacksonpictures)It's a symbol of strength as though he is signaling to his supporters that he will be fine - do you think he means it or he's just putting on a brave front here?

7. He Had Peter Pan Bedding

When this was found by the investigation team after his death, people thought it was a bit suspicious. There was a room with Peter Pan bedding.(Image source/ toys laid out, clearly meant for children. Now some of us adults would admit to still decorating our home with Disney stuff, including the bed sheets, but...

8. Awkward Security Checks...

Here we can see him being checked by security as he enters the building. He is entering the court with his father by his side. His family stood with him throughout.                (Image Source/ MichaelJacksonPictures)They supported him through all of the allegations and pleaded his innocence by his side, standing up for him and claiming that he was an innocent man.

9. Inside His Neverland Ranch...

This is a picture of Michael Jackson's ranch 'Neverland' as it was at the time. He named it after Peter Pan, the place where young boys never grow up.         (Image Source/ thetimesofnorthwestindiana)It was designed of course for him to have fun and for his young visitors. There was a ferris wheel and various fair rides and even a rollercoaster.

10. He Had SO Many Fair Ground Rides in Neverland

This is a picture of him on one of his rides with two young girls. He's staring up at the camera smiling. Pictures such as these now were photos that his lawyers did not want people to see.(Image Source/ fanpop)There's nothing wrong with an adult enjoying fair ground rides - and if you had the money, wouldn't you build your own theme park? - but accompanied by children?

11. Michael Jackson With A Line Of Boys

Again, photos such as these are now questioned. this is Michael Jackson with a line of young boys behind them with their arms outstretched and faces towards to sun.(Image Source/ fanpop)Jackson of course due to his media businesses, worked closely with young boys, but it's young boys especially that has caused suspicion on Jackson over the years.

12. Michael Jackson And His Accuser Wade Robson

This is Michael Jackson with Wade Robson. Who, accused Michael Jackson of abusing all throughout his childhood, right until he hit puberty.(Image Source/ also says that he has formed the most sophisticated child abuse operation ever because of his two cover businesses. With so many coming forward, what do you believe?

13. The Pair Had A 'Close Relationship'

Here is Michael Jackson with Wade Robson again. It is clear that the two of them are close as they have many photos together and the two of them spent a lot of time together.               (Image Source/ fanpop)The captured moment freezes a snapshot in time—a scene where Michael Jackson and Wade Robson, seemingly inseparable, stand together, their bond evident.

14. The Two 'Friends' Strike A Pose

Here he is with Wade again. When he came out with the accusations he said that Neverland had been built specifically to appeal to kids to lure them in and trap them.(Image Source/ rockandpop)He said he was abused by him. And the housekeeper claimed that she saw them in the shower together naked - but was the housekeeping telling the truth?

15. Michael Jackson and Safechuck

Safechuck was another boy who was extremely close to Michael Jackson in his youth. Safechuck described his experience as a 10 year old boy:(Image source/"There was a castle in the theme park, and upstairs there was a bedroom.' "There were bells, so you would have a moment of hearing them chirp'.

16. Under Oath

The housekeeper also described how Michael and Wade would avoid her, the place was so big that they would go far away so that she couldn't find them.(Image Source/ if she tried looking all day. He said that the place was full of secret rooms where they could hide and have relations. It must have been hard to keep track.

17. He Stands Outside Court Posing For The Press

Here he is back to his usual energy. Here he is stood outside of court posing for his fans and for the press. The press went mad for this case and every little thing was being followed.(Image Source/ MichaelJacksonpictures)Jackson was one of the most popular pop artists in the world and so the media coverage was immense, and of course many people felt betrayed by the accusations.

18. His Friendship With Macauley Culkin

This is Michael Jackson with Macauley Culkin, the well known star of Home Alone. These two also spent a lot of time together, he was one of the boys...(Image Source/ usmagazine)... that Jackson was the closest together. They remained close from Macauley being a very small boy until he was a teen and even then into adulthood.

19. They Were Apparently The Best Of Friends

Here the two are pictured together again. The pair spent a lot of time with one another. He was one of Jackson's favourite boys. The pair could also be seen together in adulthood.                       (Image Source/ TheMirror)Could it be that the young actor simply found time away from the spotlight as he enjoyed Neverland with a supportive adult, or was there something more sinister?

20. Safechuck and Michael Looks Close As They Are Snapped Together

Here is Michael Jackson with Safechuck. Safechuck was one of the closest boys to Jackson and the pair were inseparable for some time. You can see in this photo how close they were.                 (Image Source/ it is definitely a photo that Michael Jackson's lawyers did not want the jury to see now that people might be looking it with a completely different mindset.

21. They Are Joint At The Hip

Here they are again, Michael has his arms around Chuck and Chuchsafe also has his arms around Jackson. Their relationship was definitely unusually closeSee the source image                 (Image Source/ the two had no family relations between them. By the looks of things, the two of them were extremely close - even wearing matching shirts.

22. The Look of Adoration

Chucksafe here in this photo is looking up at Michael Jackson with a look of adoration on his face. You can see the bond that has been built between the two clearly.           (Image Source/ thetimes)If we didn't know the subjects of the photo it would look definitely like father and son. The captured moment transcends words, freezing a heartfelt exchange.

23. The Friendship Was Not Purely Business

Of course, the relationship between them wasn't purely a business transaction. The two of them spent hours and hours together in Michael Jackson's home.                  (Image Source/ DailyMail)Here we can see the two of them walking hand in hand. Chucksafe now accuses Jackson of grooming him, now that he's old enough to look back on their time.

24. Chuck Saw Michael As A Trusted Confidant

Here they are again. Chuck is whispering something into Jackson's ear as he bends down to hear him. We can tell that Chuck trusted Jackson and probably became more.                   (Image Source/'s likely he viwed him as somewhat of a father figure as well as a friend to him. Jackson's lawyer really did not want this series of photos that might suggest otherwise.

25. Michael Was In A Child's World

This is Chuck sat with Jackson in his bedroom. They are playing with some kind of toy and Chuck is holding it proudly up to the camera.(Image Source/ as an adult claims that this is how Jackson gained their affection because everything was designed to appeal to children and to perhaps 'lure them in' that way.

26. The Friends Went Out SO Much!

This is him with Wade again. The pair are out and about together. Of course, there are not many photos of inside his mansion with the boys, and so the photos we do have...            (Image Source/ are often taken by paparazzi when he is out and about with the young boys. Here he is again with Wade. Is it a good or bad thing he went out in public with them, though?

27. He Helped With Bed Time

This is him with another one of his befriended young boys called Emmanuel Lewis. He is behind him whilst the boy is on top of who is assumed to be his dad.(Image Source/ shows how involved he came with this young boy's life and even family. Would you say it's a good thing that the dad was aware of their time spent together though?

28. Brett Barnes Was Snapped With Jackson Between 1991 to 1996

Here is another photo that his lawyer would definitely not want the jury to see. This is Brett Barnes, who was taken in by Jackson from the years 1991 to 1996.(Image Source/ can see in this photo how close the pair are, Brett is leaning back into Jackson with his hand placed on his knee in a trusting and friendly manner.

29. Their Friendship Lasted 4 Years

This is him with the same boy, Brett Barnes. He is a little bit younger in this photo. The relationship between them spanned 4 years, within which they spent a lot of time together.(Image Source/ Brett looks to be sat on Jackson's knee as he poses for the camera. It's not known for certain whether he's sat on his knee due to the crop. What do you think?

30. Jackson and Juju Elatab

Here he is again with yet another boy sat on his name. This child is called Juju Elatab. He was one of Michael Jackson's closes boys for a couple of years.(Image Source/, his lawyers did not want the jury to see these numerous photos with the boys because many thought that it was suspicious.

31. Jackson Owned This Illicit Book

This is not a photo of Michael Jackson himself, but apparently this was a book that was found in his book collection at his mansion. It is a book called 'Boys Will Be Boys'.(Image source/ book includes a series of photos of young boys that are barely dressed, such as in swimming gear and jumping into a lake for a swim.

32. His Monkey Bubbles Was His Best Friend

Now there is nothing inappropriate or suspicious about having a pet monkey. But, it does establish his character, considering the previous facts we know about Jackson, as a little strange.(Image source/ a pet monkey isn't inherently suspicious or inappropriate. It’s true that it does contribute to Jackson's unique persona, especially when considered alongside other facets of his life.

33. The Look of Relief After Being Found Not Guilty

Here he is leaving the court after he had been acquitted of all charges. After a very long deliberation, and one lengthy trial he was found not guilty.(Image Source/ MichaelJacksonpictures)June 13, 2005 marks the day Michael Jackson walked free of his 14 charges as he was found not guilty on all accounts that he had been accused of - a happy day for the star.

34. His Wife Lisa

This picture shows him with his wife at the time, Lisa Marie Presley. The whole marriage was a little bit odd and it all happened rather quickly.(Image source/ pinterest)This photo was a snippet into their life together and they look so happy... that was until it all ended. Michael Jackson's marriage to Lisa Marie Presley was indeed a whirlwind.

35. He Slept In A Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber...

Michael Jackson started sleeping in a Hyperbaric Oxygen chamber. In isolation, this may not be seen as very odd. However, there was no known reason for this.(Image source/ dailymail)Although he did suffer from health problems so this could explain a lot of things. So perhaps it was a way Jackson tried to alleviate his conditions.

36. He Wore A Mask BEFORE People Started Wearing Masks

Wearing a mask in recent times has become the norm. And so, if we saw someone wearing a mask today it wouldn't be questioned or seen as bizarre at all.In fact it is expected if anything. Yet, many years ago this was not the case. Everyone thought that Michael Jackson was particularly strange for always wearing one.

37. Dangling A Baby

This is a photo which shocked the world at the time. Michael Jackson was at a hotel, with his baby. There were a huge crowd of fans outside his hotel.(Image source/ Jackson went out on his balcony to greet them. He got so carried away that he dangled his own baby with one arm to show the baby off to the cameras and fans.

38. He Made His Children Wear Masks

Michael Jackson started making his children wear masks in public. We are not sure whether this was for privacy and safety reasons or whether he had other reasons of his own.However, people at the time thought it was strange. As we can see in the last photo, he had a towel over his baby's head to protect their faces from the camera.

39. Accusations and Payouts

This is a photo of Michael Jackson with another young boy. This was in 2013, when he was accused of sexual abuse. The claim was going to go to court but...(Image source/ the two sides managed to come to a settlement that kept the goings on out of court. Allegations of sexual abuse against Jackson have been a subject of public attention.

40. Confessions

This is a photo around the time when Michael Jackson invited TV crew members and a journalist to his home, the Neverland Ranch. While they were there...(Image source/ they saw all around the place including the kid's amusement park and all of the other child focused eccentricities. During his lifetime, Jackson did host events and visits at Neverland Ranch.

41. He Had A Toy Castle

This is a photo from inside Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch mansion. As we already know there was a theme park for children in his garden.(Image source/, here is a photo of a toy life size castle in his home. No doubt this would have been an amazing thing for the visiting children to see and experience.

42.  Children's Toys

Again, we know that his whole ranch was themed around children's entertainment but it was to an extent that we never even realised before.(Image source/ his death, the FBI investigated his home and found a whole host of children's toys etc. Having toys in your home is expected if you're a parent, but what if you're not?

43. Dolls Everywhere

Again, here is the side of a different room which is stacked with numerous dolls. There were more toys found in this house than in any normal child's room.(Image source/ were lots of them, in many different places. Is this truly weird, or is it just the fact that dolls in themselves are particularly creepy - especially a load of them?

44. A Signed Photo

This admittedly is a strange collection. Here is a signed photo of Macauley Culkin. It's not only strange to have a picture of a child (when you aren't related to them)...(Image source/ but it was signed by him too. And, it said ''Don't leave me alone in the house''. We get why people are fans of Home Alone, but to have a picture of him?

45. A Sea of Supporters Rally Round

Here is Jackson being walked again into the courtroom. This time we can really get a visual representation of the amount of support he had.(Image Source/ fanpop)His fans actually made placards that said 'Innocent'. Another tells him God is with him, while you can see people climbing on shoulders to get a better look.

46. He Liked Bondage

Apparently, Michael Jackson had collected many images of bondage. In the photo it shows a lady wrapped up in tape. Whether the claims are true...(Image source/ as to whether he was found with multiple pictures of bondage is unknown. This photo however does belong to Jackson. And he was entitled to his adults pursuits.

47. He Had A Lot Of Strange Images

This photo was found in a book owned by Michael Jackson. And, it could well have been a coincidence or an accident that Jackson never realised.(Image source/, there were other inappropriate child based books and also other conventional pornographic books too. Were there far too many to claim an accident?

48. All About Children

This weird image, has a child's face morphed onto an adult's head who is holding a dead sheep. This was another image from a book he owned.Apparently, when the police raided his house there were multiple inappropriate children's books stored in multiple places. This just gets creepier by the minute...

49. Toys Were Found In His House

Here is another image that reveals even more toys found in Jackson's house. Now, considering we know the kind of material he kept in his house...(Image source/ and the material that was especially found in his bedroom and bathroom, the amount of toys alongside this seems undoubtedly perverted, don't you think?

50. Image Of The Police Raid

This is another photo lawyers would not want us to see. It shows the police raiding his house, and in front of them are lots of children's toys.(Image source/ are lifesize super heroes. It makes Jackson look as though his house was a kind of children luring tool, especially on a grand scale with the life sized heroes.

51. Edward Scissorhand

These were something that Jackson kept at his Netherland ranch, found in the particular glass case. They were worth over 5 thousand dollars.(Image source/ is not a mimic, it's the very same pair that Johnny Depp wore in the iconic movie. Why he has Edward Scissorhand's hands nobody knows...

52. He Collected Life Sized Dolls

This has to be one of the creepiest things Jackson had at his ranch (and there was a few things). He collected life sized dolls which he dressed in normal children's clothing.(Image source/ he even positioned them to look real. In 2003 when the FBI raided the house they found the dolls looking at each other as though in conversation.

53. His Door Knocker Was Two Boys Kissing

Of all the strange things Michael Jackson had, this definitely wasn't the worst. But, having a door knocker as two young boys kissing isn't something his lawyers would want you to see.(Image source/ considering the reason he was taken to court in the first place. A young boy as a door knocker is bad enough in itself, but two of them kissing? That's just weird.

54. The King Of Pop

Being called the king of pop clearly was not enough...Michael Jackson needed the throne to go along with it. It's a pretty extra item to have in your own home - for yourself.(Image source/, the throne had no real gold it was valued at around 2 thousand dollars. Compared to the toys, though, this at least seems like a normal thing to have.

55. He Had An Animatronic Grandma

When the FBI revealed some of the items in Jackson's home, this was one of them. He had an animatronic fortune telling grandmother in his house.(Image source/'s a very niche item to have in your own home. We'd love to know the story behind this one. It looks scarily realistic and it actually worked.

56. The Pied Piper

This is definitely an image that Michael Jackson's lawyers do not was the jury to see. It's Michael Jackson himself as the pied piper.(Image source/'s clearly asked for this piece of artwork to be made. And, considering the accusations of molesting children it's was something they wanted to keep quiet.

57. He Has Macauley Culkin's Finger Painting

This is a picture that was done by Culkin, clearly at a very young age as the picture is merely finger painting. Yet, this was exhibited at Jackson's home.(Image source/ Culkin was questioned he said: "You have to remember, Michael Jackson's bedroom is two stories," he said. "It has three bathrooms...You have to understand the whole scenario..."

58. He Had His Own Head Made Of Metal

A lot of Jackson's artwork centered either around himself or children. He even had a sculpture of his own head made out of metal. It was worth around 2500 dollars.(Image source/'s not something you expect to find in someone's home - even if you are Michael Jackson. But again, we'd prefer to find this adult sized head than all those toys...

59. He Had A Full Batman Costume

Everyone who speaks of Jackson will tell you that he was pretty much an adult version of a child. And, his belongings definitely make it appear so.(Image source/ was a massive fan of Batman and he had this full Batman suit in his house - for an adult - most likely himself. Most DC fans would agree this is cool, though.

60. He Had Moulds Of His Face In Agony

No lawyer would want the jury to find this in their clients house. These are mould of his own face, with different expressions. But, the worst bit is that...(Image source/ each expression looks like he is in complete pain. This is definitely not a normal thing to have in your house - or to even make in the first place.

61. He Had Fairy Children Souvenirs

When we consider all of the other strange things in his home, these are just the cherry on the cake. These are some kind of elf/ fairy creatures...but again they are children.They are probably a continuation of his Peter Pan theme. But perhaps he took the theme too far. We know Peter Pan is all about the boy who never grew up.

62. His Scalp Was Scorched

This is Michael Jackson after filming for a Pepsi advert. It is not a picture that has been widely seen, probably because Jackson himself did not want people to see it.(Image source/, this apparently was the start of him wearing a wig that he never took off again - and he glued it to his head. His hair has been one of the things to change over the years.

63. He Had A Giant Set Of Underwear

Okay, so we know by now that Michael Jackson is a highly unusual guy (an understatement). And here's more proof if we needed it. First of all, he's holding up a giant pair of underpants.And, to make it more random he has a real life dove sat on each of his hands. We would really love to know the context behind this... it's sort of like a Renaissance painting.

64. He Paid Millions To Drop The Charges

Here he is again holding a child and alongside another young This boy is Jordy Chandler, one of the boys who accused Jackson of molesting him. He denied it,but he paid out 11.5 million to the boy, and just over 1 million each to his parents, and then another 3.2 million for their lawyer charges. After this, the charges were dropped and settled.

65. His Young Friend

This is a photograph of Michael Jackson with Jonathan Spence. Spence was another boy who Jackson spent a lot of time with and grew particularly close too.This relationship lasted around 3 years. In that time the two became quite inseperable and he spent a lot of time at the ranch - no surprise with all those kids' toys.

66. Another Of His Boys

This is Sean Lennon, he was around 10 years old. The two of them only spent one year together. Often Jackson would have multiple young boys but only for a short period of time.(Image source/ was because he helped them under his agency which was a drama school for young boys. Sean Lennon, the son of John Lennon and Yoko Ono.

67. As Close As Family

This is Michael Jackson with the Cascio's family. This was a family who knew him very well - the whole family spent a lot of time together.(Image source/ he died, the family talked about how close they were and how good Jackson was with the children, in a strictly innocent manner.

68. The Cascio Boys

Here he is with Frank and Eddie Cascio again. Not only did the boys stay at the Jackson's house he also stayed at the family home a lot of the time.(Image source/ to the mother he would wake up a lot in the night due to his insomnia and wake up the children to play something instead of trying to sleep.

69. In His Arms

Juju Elatab, one of the boys that has long been associated with being involved with Michael Jackson. Here we can see how close they are.(Image source/ seems to act as a parental figure to the young boy who is clinging on to him. He was often seen with the children in his arms.

70. Side By Side

Juju Elatab was one of Michael Jackson's youngest boys. Although not the youngest boy he was only a few years old when he met Jackson.(Image source/ had many pictures taken with him as they were often seen together. We can see Jackson leaning over him smiling for the photo.
