Wade Robson & Amanda Rodriguez: How Is Their Marriage?

You will probably recognise one of these names, but how did the Leaving Neverland documentary affect the marriage of Wade Robson and Amanda Rodriguez?

Wade and Amanda met they were 19 and she was 22. The pair married in 2005, and welcomed a son, Koa, in 2010.

After the birth of his son, Wade started to experience nervous breakdowns.

It was during this turbulent time that Wade told his wife and family that the alleged sexual abuse he was victim of from Michael Jackson was in fact true – despite the fact he had denied all allegations twice before. Once in 1993 and again in 2005.

When discussing it, he said:

‘The idea of this truth coming out and Amanda knowing about it and my family knowing about it, and everybody in the entertainment business, in my career knowing about it, I mean, was just a ridiculous idea that was never going to happen in my mind’.

Leaving Neverland…

In 2019, Wade Robson and James Safechuck starred in the documentary, Leaving Neverland. It explores the alleged sexual assault that the two men received by singer Michael Jackson.

The men explained that they were abused as prepubescent boys, aged 7 and 10, respectively.

They went into detail when describing the oral sex, anal sex and masturbation Jackson supposedly exposed them to at the Neverland Ranch as well as other locations.

Amanda also starred in the documentary and said:

‘The abuse was a bomb that dropped in our life and exploded and ripped apart everything that we found sound and secure and safe’.

Amanda banned her mother-in-law from visiting their house for five months. As a mother herself, she could not understand how or why Wade’s mother had not protected him from Michael Jackson.

In 2015, Wade tried to take his accusations against the ‘Thriller’ singer to court but the Los Angeles based judge dismissed the case. He stated that Wade had waited too long to bring his accusations forward – there is a 12-month statutory deadline after someone has died.

Interestingly, the judge did not comment on the sexual assault allegations.

However, you might also know Amanda from her acting days. She starred in The Richmond Family Massacre (2009) and The Strip (2003).

The couple are extremely private – even leading us to question whether they are still together. We can confirm that they still as, as highlighted on Amanda’s website, Feast Hawaii.

The family moved back to Amanda’s home of Hawaii. Here she runs her business, FEAST HawaiiHo.

The Robson Child Abuse Healing and Prevention Fund…

This isn’t the only job that Amanda has – together with Wade, they run the Robson Child Abuse Healing and Prevention Fund. Their mission is to prevent child abuse as well as helping those who have experienced it.

Shortly after the Leaving Neverland documentary was released Amanda posted the following to Instagram:

You amaze me.✨ . The recent light, love and support that has been shared with my family and I since the release of Leaving Neverland has been astounding. I bow in gratitude to all of you. . Our hope for the documentary film was that it would shed light. A light of hope for child abuse survivors to know they deserve to heal no matter what. A light on the deceptive workings of a pedophile so we can better protect our children. A light on the importance of truth. . Comments are off for the time being as I plan to take a week or two away from social media and tune in to all the guidance that Spring has brought with it. . I see so much beauty in this world. More sharing of it soon. Love and Light to you Friends.💛

It wasn’t always happily ever after…

Before Wade and Amanda were a couple, Wade was dating Brandi Jackson – the niece of his alleged abuser.

Wade and Brandi had known each other since they were children, and rumour has it that Wade asked the King of Pop to set the pair up.

Brandi claims that Wade cheated with Britney Spears whilst the pair were in a relationship. At the supposed time, Wade was a choreographer for Britney Spears and NSync.

Rumour has it that ‘Cry Me A River’ by Justin Timberlake is about this scandal. Nobody involved in the saga has either confirmed or denied the information.
