Los Angeles - Debbie Rowe has blasted Wade Robson as "opportunistic".

The former wife of Michael Jackson - who is the mother of the late singer's children Prince Michael, 16 and Paris, 15, - is horrified by Wade's accusations that Michael sexually assaulted him and has branded him a liar.

She told TMZ: "I was angered that Wade Robson reversed his sworn testimony from court in 2005, and now claims to be a victim of sexual abuse.

"His publicity-seeking attempt is opportunistic and just oozes falseness.

"It will be quickly forgotten, and will do nothing, nothing to tarnish Michael's extraordinary legacy."

Michael's acquittal

Wade was one of the witnesses at Michael's child molestation trial in 2005, and his testimony, along with those of his sister and mother, were said to be instrumental in the Billie Jean star's acquittal but he has now changed his story and alleged Michael sexually abused him for seven years.

On 1 May, the choreographer filed legal documents asking for money from the Michael Jackson Estate in compensation for alleged childhood molestation at the hands of the late pop star
