LOS ANGELES (AP) — A judge has dismissed a choreographer’s claim that Michael Jackson molested him as a child.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff dismissed Wade Robson’s claim on Tuesday after determining he waited too long to file it in court.

Robson had previously denied the pop superstar molested him and testified in Jackson’s defense in a criminal trial in 2005.

Robson then sued Jackson’s estate in May 2013 and sought to file a late claim against the singer’s estate.

Robson, who has worked with Britney Spears and appeared on the Fox series “So You Think You Can Dance,” claimed he didn’t realize the damage Jackson’s molestation had caused until he had a pair of nervous breakdowns.

Jackson’s estate has denied Robson’s allegations of abuse.

Robson’s attorney Maryann Marzano did not immediately return an email seeking comment.
