Michael Jackson's Ex-Bodyguard Matt Fiddes Shares Truth Behind Star's 'Secret Child Room'. 03-07-'20

Matt FiddesBodyguard Matt Fiddes, who was charged with looking after the late 'King of Pop', has given new insight into his time with the star and the child molestation allegations he's faced.

Matt Fiddes, who was charged with looking after the late 'King of Pop' before his death in 2009, has spoken out after the child molestation allegations brought against the singer.

Michael has been hit by a string of child abuse claims that were at the centre of documentary 'Leaving Neverland'.

His fans were outraged by the claims and his family vehemently denied them.

Michael was taken to trial on child molestation claims in 2005 but was found not guilty.

Speaking on podcast The Scott McGlynn show, Matt, who is now an entrepreneur and celebrity personal trainer, spoke about the allegations that Michael built a secret child room at his home.

He told host Scott McGlynn: "They [critics] try and tell you that he built a secret child room but that was there when he bought the house, it was actually a panic room.

"The guy was a multi-billionaire and it was completely normal to have a panic room… you would push a door and he had stuff in their to keep him entertained for a few days until a problem was solved.

"Many times people used to parachute in and alarms would go off and Neverland staff used to tell him to go into the room. So it was not a secret room, it is the most ridiculous stuff that people make up."

Matt also hinted that fans could get to hear some unreleased music soon.

He said: "I think there's some more albums to be released. There's going to be a biopic... a bit like the Freddie Mercury one. I understand they are doing one on Michael Jackson as well. So there's a lot more to happen.

"It is a shame his reputation has been tarnished by these crazy allegations."

Matt also shared his thoughts on 'Leaving Neverland', which featured two of Michael's former child companions, Wade Robson and James Safechuck, who both claimed they were sexually abused by the singer.

The bodyguard said: "The timing was very obvious. The thing that they missed out of the documentary is that they are suing MJ for hundreds of millions of dollars. Had they put that in the documentary, I think people would have turned the channel over or taken a different view on it.

"It is quite an important part. Tried to sue him, failed, then appealed, and they make this TV programme! It should have been included in the programme, definitely. And MJ wasn't here to defend himself, so I was fuming."

He added: "And when things started to be proved to be untrue, as the programme was dissected by Michael Jackson's estate, now the programme is only about one and a half hours long, instead of the four hours it was.

"He had one thousand law suits in his life, if I remember correctly. People were always out to get money, it was a daily occurrence. People would do anything to try and meet him.

"From what I saw, the parents were the problem, not the kids. The Parents would say 'can't they have 10 more minutes?'"

Matt was also asked about Michael's sexuality.

The late star married two women in his life, Lisa Marie Presley, from 1994 to 1996, and to Debbie Rowe, from 1996 to 1999.

But many people believe the father of three was gay.

Matt said: "He'd always try and promote that he was single. That was the way he was trained by his record label, 'Don't let your fan base down'. That was always in his mind and he wanted to keep that mystery going."

And when asked what Michael would think about the media reports surrounding him today, Matt said: "He wouldn't want me to respond to all of this criticism. His attitude was 'always ignore it. It doesn't deserve my attention. And if a light is shined on something it just makes the problems bigger'.

"His advice to us all was to ignore it and don't comment. But we had to [say something] last year as it got to the point were I couldn't ignore it anymore.

"But I think that [the fall out from HBO airing the 'Leaving Neverland' documentary] is still on-going and they are suing the broadcasters. It is still on-going.

"The documentary needed to be more balanced in my opinion."
