Jackson abuse claims 'revenge for exile from Neverland.

MICHAEL Jackson's lawyer yesterday suggested that his accuser made up his story of abuse to get even for being exiled from Neverland.

'You realised you were not going to spend the rest of your lives as part of Michael Jackson's family,' defence lawyer Thomas Mesereau asked in the court in Santa Maria, California.
