Marlon Brando, Michael Jackson Discuss Alleged Abuse in New Recording

MARLON BRANDO MICHAEL JACKSON

In a newly unearthed recording, Marlon Brando talks to Michael Jackson about the children he was accused of sexually abusing. 

In a newly unearthed recording, Marlon Brando details a tear-filled conversation he had with Michael Jackson covering the pop star's sexuality, sex life, and the children that Jackson was accused of sexually abusing.

The interview with Brando, who was open to his friends about his bisexuality, took place as a sworn testimony with Los Angeles Deputy District Attorneys Bill Hodgman and Lauren Weis on March 14, 1994. It can be heard in the season finale of Telephone Stories: The Trials of Michael Jackon, which debuts Sunday. The hit podcast is hosted by Brandon Ogborn and is available on the Luminary app.

"Brando is different from everyone else who figures into the Jackson investigations," Ogborn told the Los Angeles Times. "He was a famous actor and rich beyond measure. Unlike other people who have 'spoken out' against Jackson, Brando didn't want or need anything from the pop star, and he offers the DA insider information that never came to light."

Brando also shares with the prosecutors how embarrassed Jackson was when their conversation turned to sex. "I had asked him if he was a virgin and he just sort of laughed and giggled," the film star said. Brando also asked, "What do you do for sex?" and if he masturbated, and about any friends he had that were his own age.

Jackson soon broke down, admitted that he hated his father, and wept. He became so inconsolable that Brando had to assuage him. Brando said he originally thought Jackson was gay but came to believe, "It's pretty reasonable to conclude that he may have had something to do with kids."

Ogborn noted that the interview with Brando was never used as evidence in the 2005 trial in which Jackson was acquitted. Jackson, who never publicly confirmed his sexuality, died in 2009.

Questions about Jackson's alleged abuse have recently reentered public debate with the HBO documentary Leaving Neverland, causing many to denounce the singer and his music.

Telephone Stories: The Trials of Michael Jackson is available on the Luminary app. Listen to the recording with Marlon Brando on the season finale premiering Sunday.
