Wade Robson has been all over the news lately after he came out to say that Michael Jackson, whom he defended in a child molestation trial in 2005, actually molested Robson for seven years.

Only time will tell if Robson’s sexual molestation lawsuit against the Jackson estate has any teeth. In the meantime, here’s what you should know about Robson’s life, career, accomplishments, and the man behind the story — a talented choreographer and performer who has numerous claims to fame …

1. Wade Robson Was Part of a Kid-Rap Duo Called Quo in the ’90s

IMDb states that,

When Joey Fatone, a member of *NSYNC, hurt his leg in rehearsals for the music video for their single “POP.” Wade had to fill in and get Joe-ified for the video.

Keep your eyes peeled as all the close-up shots of him are Fatone, but the rest are Robson. Since Robson was the choreographer for N’Sync and co-wrote the song with Justin Timberlake, filling in only made sense.

After a few years a cheating scandal erupted, stirring up rumors that Britney Spears actually cheated on Justin Timberlake with Robson. Check out what The Daily Beast reported:

Of course, men aren’t the only ones who cheat beneath them. Just look at Britney Spears. In 2006, she reportedly two-timed her then-boyfriend, Justin Timberlake, stepping out with none other than Wade Robson, the man who served as both their choreographers. Robson has denied the claims, but a slew of songs from Timberlake are all said to address the alleged pair. “You don’t have to say what you did / I already know, I found out from him / Now there’s just no chance, for you and me, there’ll never be / And don’t it make you sad about it.”
