A global hunt has been launched for the first man to publicly accuse Michael Jackson of child molestation so he can testify in a new $100 million case.
Jordan Chandler, now 37, won a $20million settlement from Jackson after his father Evan Chandler launched accusations that the King of Pop sexually abused him at the age of 13.
Chandler has kept a very low profile in recent years but fellow alleged molestation victim, celebrity choreographer Wade Robson, is now searching for him in the hopes he can testify in his ongoing lawsuit in 2013 claiming he suffered years of sexual abuse after he was groomed by two of Jackson’s companies.
Lawyers for Robson, 34, and Jimmy Safechuck, another companion of Jackson who says he was abused by the star as a child, are searching the U.K. and other European countries trying to find Chandler.
‘Wade and Jimmy want to look Jordie in the eye and talk to him about what they suffered,’ a source told the New York Daily News. ‘They feel that they may appeal to him to finally tell his story.’
The source said that Chandler has fled the US to avoid the investigators.
Lead attorney Vince Finaldi said Chandler was a ‘key piece of the puzzle’.
‘We’re not going to stop until we find him,’ he said.
