Tom Mesereau, who was Michael’s lawyer in his 2005 trial, has spoken to CNN about Michael. He said he was a “kind-hearted artist” who truly believed he could heal the world and that he thinks he was exploited and taken advantage of.
Mesereau said in the interview; “He [Michael] was a very kind-hearted, gentle, sensitive, intuitive artist who truly believed he could heal the world in some positive way. He attracted one profiteer after another. There was loneliness, isolation, distrust. The cruelest thing of all was taking children and turning children against him.”
