Lionel Richie Weighs In on Abuse Claims Against Michael Jackson

Mercury NashvilleLionel Richie isn't buying choreographer Wade Robson's sexual-abuse claims against the late Michael Jackson.  Richie is the latest music star to take MJ's side, just as R&B singer Omarion did earlier this week when TMZ asked what he thought of the molestation allegations.

Robson says that Jackson sexually abused him as a child, and memories of those supposed incidents came flooding back to him when he suffered a nervous breakdown last year, according to TMZ.  When cameramen asked Richie what he thought about the reports, the singer said he believes the claims are "bogus."

Robson is suing the Jackson estate, and he's seeking damages.
