Michael Jackson’s bodyguard has revealed he used to sneak women into the late pop star’s bedroom.

In the aftermath of the Leaving Neverland documentary that saw Wade Robson and James Safechuck allege that Jackson molested them when they were younger, Matt Fiddes has spoken out about what went on in Jackson’s private life.

Insisting that he knew Jackson “so well”, Fiddes told the Metro the singer had spent time with own children, and that “he’s not the man he’s portrayed” by the HBO documentary.

“I felt after that, for my own legacy, it was time to speak out,” he added.

Insisting that he wasn’t the child ubuser he’s been portrayed to be, Fiddes said: “The guy had girlfriends and had a legitimate marriage to Lisa Marie [Presley], that was the way he lived his life.

“We were the people sneaking the girls into his room.”

Michael Jackson, shielded from the rain by bodyguard Matt Fiddes, attends a fundraising event at Exeter Football Club in 2002.

Fiddes also shared his opinion on the claims made by Robson and Safechuck that they were molested at Jackson’s Neverland ranch.

The bodyguard says Jackson was never at the property Los Olivos, California, saying it was more of a focal point for his charitable work with the Make A Wish Foundation which connects sick children with their heroes.

Fiddes maintains that Jackson spent most of his time working in Los Angeles, and begrudged the four hour drive back to the ranch which boasted its own fairground and bowling alley. He says the singer preferred to spend his personal time living out of suites at luxury hotels like the Beverly Wiltshire.

Shedding light on Jackson’s hectic schedule amid the time the incidents allegedly took place, Fiddes adds: “If he was doing what he was doing to young kids he would never get any work done.

“He was already recording, performing and rehearsing, for him to be messing around with young kids would be impossible because of the security that was in place. It’s impossible.”

Jackson and his estate have always maintained the Thriller singer’s innocence against accusations of sexual misconduct with minors.
