Joy Robson, the mother of Wade Robson one of Michael Jackson's regular bed sharing friends, gave testimony at the trial yesterday.
She said that Jackson would pick "special friends", from amongst the boys who regularly visited Neverland, one of these "special friends" was her own son Wade.
Jackson called these children "cousins", apparently so that they would not get jealous.
Ms Robson said that she had never seen any inappropriate behaviour between Jackson and Wade, she then added that her family felt close to Jackson.
"We consider us very good friends, if not family..the happiest place on earth ... very serene, very peaceful, very beautiful - inspirational".
Sentimental, deluded claptrap.
Either Jackson's celebrity "status" has totally overwhelmed her reasoning, or else she was simply after his money.
Ms Robson denied suggestions that her "friendship" with Jackson's was designed to help her son's show business career.
Having denied that, she then admitted that Jackson did help her family financially and organised a recording deal for Wade.
Ms Robson described Jackson's love of children as "very pure", and said she had felt no qualms about trusting him with her own children.
She then said, rather disconcertingly, that:
"They enjoyed each other..I remember Michael telling me it was like looking in the mirror. He saw himself all over again."
Normal, responsible, parents would not allow a 30 year old man to become so involved with their children; most certainly, they would not allow a 30 year old man to share the same bed as their children.
It is clear that there were other issues at play here.
Quite simply put, it seems that these parents were enamoured of Jackson's celebrity and his wealth.
