It has come to light Michael Jackson had distinctive "splotches" on his backside and penis which were identified by his first public accuser, leading to the staggering $23 million payoff. In 1993, the megastar was arrested and forced to undergo a "humiliating" strip search after Jordan Chandler, then 13, claimed he groomed and molested him, The Sun reported.

Owing to the legendary entertainer's skin condition vitiligo, he reportedly had distinctive marks on his penis and buttocks, which the child was able to draw. Jackson, however, denied all allegations of sex abuse made against him and called it "the most humiliating ordeal of my life” after California police strip-searched and photographed his genitalia.

Jackson agreed to a massive settlement with the Chandler family following the strip search, which amounted to between $20 million and $24 million. The child correctly identified the marks on the star's penis, according to several reports including those from investigative journalists such as Diane Dimond and Jacques Peretti.

Jordan's description of the singer's private parts was allegedly "so accurate" he was able to identify where the "splotches" were placed when Jackson's penis was "erect", according to author and ex-music industry exec John Niven. “The boy’s information was so accurate he was able to locate where the splotch moved to when Jackson’s penis became erect and the fact that he was circumcised," Niven wrote for The Independent.



 

But Jackson's fervent supporters claim the star was not circumcised, including his friend and journalist John Randy Taraborrelli. “The boy had given a detailed description of his body and the detectives needed to check if it was true. All eyes peered at him to see if he was circumcised, as Jordy had claimed," Taraborrelli said following the singer's death in 2009.

During Jackson's 2005 molestation trial after accusations from Gavin Arvizo, the presiding judge ruled that images of the superstar's penis and Jordan's drawing were "inadmissible" in court. But according to CNN, the prosecution said the teenager's description of the celebrity's penis would "prove" claims of inappropriate behavior with his young companions. “Prosecutors hoped Chandler's drawing of Jackson's distinctive blemishes, allegedly corroborated by search-warrant photos, would prove Jackson was not 'shy and modest' with sleepover guests," the report said.

The 2005 trial also saw former Neverland security guard Ralph Chacon claim he witnessed Jackson perform a sex act on Jordan. However, the charges were later proven to be false. According to him, the child, aged 12 or 13, and Jackson, were standing in the nude inside a changing room at his Californian mansion.

"I saw them standing in the nude," he said. "They were facing each other. I saw Mr. Jackson was caressing the boy's hair. He was kissing him on his face and lips. He went down, he started sucking his nipples. He started going down to his penis and started putting it in his mouth."

Following the screening of the documentary 'Leaving Neverland' at the Sundance Film Festival last week, more allegations against Jackson have come to light. The movie features the singer's former boy companions Wade Robson and James Safechuck, who claim they were sexually abused by the star over a number of years. Nonetheless, Jackson denied all allegations of sex abuse outright when he was alive, and his estate described the upcoming documentary as "an outrageous and pathetic attempt to exploit and cash in."
