The twisted nature of Michael Jackson’s sizable and bizarre pornography collection has been revealed in newly released images.
The huge cache of videos, books and images found at his Neverland Ranch in 2003 – six years before he died – was noted in a Santa Barbara Sheriff’s Department report.
It featured women and men in scenes of bondage, transgender videos, young male erotica featuring men and teenagers and even scenes of same-sex sadomasochism.

Much of the material is also detailed in court papers from the time, submitted after a young boy came forward claiming that he had been sexually abused and assaulted by the singer on multiple occasions.
The police report claims that in Jackson’s bedroom and bathroom alone there were at least seven collections of work found by investigators that show boys in their teenage years – and in some cases younger – fully nude or partially clothed.
One of the collections, Taormina Wilhelm Von Gloeden, is described in court papers as: ‘Nude photos of teenage boys from late 1800s.’
Then there were Polaroids of two juvenile males.
‘One of the juveniles appeared to be a young teenager; the other appeared to be adolescent (pre-teen),’ stated the report.
‘The name “Greg” was printed above the child who appeared to be off teenage years. This subject appeared to be wearing a white terry cloth robe.
‘The name “Kendall” was printed over the adolescent aged individual. The adolescent individual was bare chested.
‘The picture does not depict the lower half of the children so it cannot be ascertained as to what they were wearing with regard to lower clothing.’
The reported later noted when describing these photos: ‘The phrases “Are you scared yet?” and “Ha! Ha!” were printed on the lower portion of the picture.’
There were more photos of those two boys found in another box of photos, this time alongside Jackson himself.
‘Again, these individuals were posed in provocative manners with bare chests,’ said the report.
The search of the home occurred in November of that year while Jackson was in Las Vegas, with 70 members of the Santa Barbara County District Attorney’s Office and Sheriff’s Department turning up to the residence.
An arrest warrant had been issued at that time as well, and Jackson later turned himself into police when he returned to California.
Radar Online first obtained the police report and court papers, and an investigator on the case told them: ‘The documents exposed Jackson as a manipulative, drug-and-sex-crazed predator who used blood, gore, sexually explicit images of animal sacrifice and perverse adult sex acts to bend children to his will.’
The source added: ‘He also had disgusting and downright shocking images of child torture, adult and child nudity, female bondage and sadomasochism.’
The report states that many of the materials featuring naked men and women in the home could be used for the purpose of trying to attract young men or boys.
After the descriptions for many of the materials, the investigator notes: ‘Based on my training, this type of material can be used as part of the “grooming” process, by which people (those seeking to molest children) lower the inhibitions of their intended victims and facilitate the molestation of said victims.’
These materials include ‘a book depicting nude children’ found in the singer’s ‘arcade room'; ‘a book which contained nude photographs of men’ in the ‘master bathroom'; and multiple books found in the ‘master bedroom’ that included one with ‘naked and semi-naked gay men’ and another with ‘pre-teen or early teenage individuals’ who in some cases were ‘nude or semi-nude.’
Radar spoke with Santa Barbara Senior Assistant District Attorney Ron Zonen about the case as he was part of the prosecution team that took on Jackson in court.
‘A lot of this stuff was used to desensitize the children, and Michael admitted taking one child after another into bed with him for long periods of time,’ said Zonen.
‘We identified five different boys, who all made allegations of sexual abuse. There’s not much question in my mind that Michael was guilty of child molestation.’
