Michael Jackson Accuser James Safechuck Met the King of Pop Filming a Pepsi Commercial

By Anna Quintana

At the center of HBO's controversial documentary Leaving Neverland are Wade Robson and James Safechuck — two men who claim they were molested by Michael Jackson at very young ages. 

And while most viewers will recognize Wade, who created the now iconic "Bye Bye Bye" choreography, starred in The Wade Robson Project, and was the man in the middle of the Justin Timberlake-Britney Spears cheating scandal, James is not as well known. 

So, who exactly is James Safechuck? 

James aka Jimmy first met the King of Pop in 1987 on the set of a Pepsi commercial. Following filming, James, who was about 9 years old at the time, got closer with Jackson before joining him on his Bad tour.
