Tatum O'Neal Contradicts Jackson's Seduction Story

Hollywood star Tatum O'neal has rubbished Michael Jackson's claims she attempted to lure him to her house and seduce him - because she was just 12 years old.

The Paper Moon actress, 40, writes about her encounter with the then-17-year-old THRILLER star - who's preparing to fight child molestation charges in court - in her autobiography A PAPER LIFE.

Contrary to Jackson's version of events, O'Neal insists at 12 years old a sexual encounter with the singer was never going to happen, and it was actually him who tried to kiss her.

O'Neal says, "I was just twelve and not at all ready for a real-life encounter.

"Michael, who was sweating profusely, seemed as intimidated as I was. He jumped up nervously and said, 'Uh... gotta go.'"
