((More troubling allegations against Pop Star Michael Jackson have his family and friends fighting back.

SOT: Firpo Carr, Jackson family friend.

The family is outraged and justifiably so.
Track: A Vanity Fair article written by Mauree Orth says the singer gives children wine out of soda cans....calling white wine "Jesus Juice" an red wine ``Jesus blood.''
Orth writes that Jackson's accuser claims the pop star gave him wine in Coke cans on a flight from Florida in February 2003, with his unsuspecting mom right there. The report quotes a former Jackson business adviser, as saying all the kids around Jackson knew about Jesus juice. Jackson reportedly told them, ``Jesus drank it, so it must be good.''
Jackson is charged with having lewd contact with a child and giving an intoxicating agent to a minor. Orth reports both the alleged victim and his brother were offered drinks.

SOT Maureen Orth/Author/Vanity Fair Magazine

"He and his brother were both alleged to have been given wine by Jackson - also shown pornography, naked girls on the internet and in magazines." - 9 sec.
Jackson say he never gave children alcohol but admit he was addicted to drugs. They also refer to another child abuse allegation where Jackson settled out of court.

SOT: Geraldine Hughes, Jackson family friend.

The allegation of child molestation was a part of an elaborate extortion scheme.
Stand up: Jacksons friends say theyre speaking out because Jacksons attorneys cant. Theyre under a gag order. Jackson will face a preliminary hearing next week. Elizabeth Sanchez, CBS News, Los Angeles.))
