He was the King of Poop.
Neverland’s manicured lawns and fairy-tale facade masked a house of horrors and madness, five of Michael Jackson’s maids revealed to The Post.
“Michael sometimes ran around where the animals were, and he’d track . . . poop throughout the house and think nothing of it,” Maid No. 1 recalled. “Then, if you said something, he’d threaten to make doo-doo snowballs and throw it at you.”
When Oprah Winfrey visited the Los Olivos, California, ranch for an interview in 1993, it was pristine. Floors were waxed, walls scrubbed and windows power-washed.
It was after she, guest Elizabeth Taylor and TV crews left the next morning that the real Jacko appeared.
“He literally peed on the floor of the entryway, right where you saw Oprah walk in. It was surreal. He just stood there, unzipped his trousers and watered the floor,” Maid No. 2 said.
Jackson had been relatively clean and orderly up until 1993, when 13-year-old Jordan Chandler became the first child to publicly accuse Jacko of molestation.
The accusations sent Jacko into a stupor, with the singer checking into drug rehabilitation in Switzerland and hiding out overseas until attorney Johnnie Cochran secured a guarantee from the Los Angeles district attorney that he would not be arrested upon his return to the States.
“He literally peed on the floor of the entryway, right where you saw Oprah walk in. It was surreal. He just stood there, unzipped his trousers and watered the floor.”
Jacko later paid Jordan and his parents more than $20 million in exchange for the boy’s silence.
“His whole life changed after 1993 when he had to pay that boy off. I’m telling you, he was the dirtiest, most unsanitary person in Hollywood,” Maid No. 3 said.
Now the court will hear accusations against Jackson again. A former Jacko pal and choreographer, Wade Robson, has filed suit against the pop star’s estate.
Robson, who appeared in Jacko’s music videos as a boy, stood by him at his 2005 criminal trial in which the singer was alleged to have molested another young boy, cancer patient Gavin Arvizo.
As a defense witness, Robson said he was never molested by the pop icon — although he and his mother and sister testified that Jacko would cry if denied permission to sleep with him.
But in a court filing made public last week, Robson alleged Jacko raped him as a boy. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff has scheduled an initial hearing in the case for Oct. 6.
Several of Jacko’s former maids are expected to be called as witnesses for Robson. The maids, who worked for Jacko between 1986 and 2004, spoke to The Post on the condition of anonymity.
During the star’s 2005 child-molestation trial, Kristina Fournier, who worked for more than a decade as Jacko’s housekeeper, testified that she saw syringes strewn about the property and that Jacko, usually stoned, regularly babbled unintelligibly.
While Jacko, who died of acute propofol intoxication in 2009, battled child-molestation accusations, his mental state alarmed those he hired to care for his mansion.
“Michael was a messed-up and depraved drug addict. He was twisted,” said Maid No. 3, who recalled how Jacko’s young pals — including Robson, another accuser James Safechuck, actor Macaulay Culkin and several nephews — wreaked havoc.
The maids described young guests tossing bottles and cans around the house. They would engage in hours-long food fights as well as pillow fights, which left feathers covering floors and furniture.
Jacko would object to his sheets being changed. “There were many times I had to sneak in and change his linen. I couldn’t understand how he’d sleep in such filth,” Maid No. 2 said. “There’d be socks and underpants in the bed and half-eaten chicken and potato chips, empty bottles of wine and whiskey on the floor.

“And you knew he wet himself — the place reeked.”
Maid No. 3 said Jacko’s bed, as well as a sofa in the living room, once became infested with bedbugs. “He said, ‘Get them the hell out of here. Call the exterminator,’ ” she recalled. “He said we should do a better job, and he said he knew that we came from poor countries so we were used to bedbugs, but he couldn’t live with them.
“Everybody he brought in to clean, and sometimes we’d even get cleaning services to come in for the extra help. Everybody was repulsed. His bedroom smelled horrible. If everyone else was like me, they hated going in there.”
After Jacko had son Prince in 1997, he began confining his squalor to his own bedroom, she said. “But, not too long afterwards, it was, ‘Here we go again, this man is ungodly.’ ”
The former housekeepers also said Jacko was a hoarder.
“A pack rat in the true sense of the word,” Maid No. 1 said. “He’d keep all of these books that he never read, shirts, hats and other little trinkets that fans would give him, and they’d be in the dining room, the kitchen, all about the floors, and he’d complain if someone put them in a different place, and he’d complain if we didn’t pick them up.
“The amount of stuff he had could have covered that entire ranch, and most of it was junk that he refused to part with.”
Maid No. 2 said only Jacko’s main closet, which held his trademark black tuxedo pants, loafers and sequined jackets, was kept immaculate.
The most scurrilous item Jacko held on to?
“I’d say there were two,” recalled Maid No. 2, who worked at Neverland from 1994 to 1996. “A soiled baby’s diaper, and a pair of Fruit of the Loom that was obviously worn by someone who was either a teen or an early-age adult.”
He also kept a dartboard in the foyer of his bedroom with pictures of DreamWorks founders Steven Spielberg, David Geffen and Jeffrey Katzenberg — who he believed had stolen his idea for the studio and even its boy-on-the-moon logo.
“Any of the children he played with who hit the bull’s-eye would get extra ice cream or anything else they wanted,” said Maid No. 3, who worked from 1996 to 1999. “He hated those guys with a passion. He was surprisingly very anti-Semitic. He’d lead some of the kids in chants: ‘Kill the bastards,’ and ‘Kill the bloodsuckers.’ ”
The maid said Jacko watched in disgust as Spielberg got a Los Angeles Film Critics award in the 1990s.

“It was crazy. He turned into his favorite ‘Twilight Zone’ character, and his eyes kind of bugged out, and he went into this crazy trance, pointing his finger at the television screen and saying, ‘You’re a bad man, a very bad man,’ ” she said, referring to the famed TV series’ character of Anthony Fremont, a boy who “wishes away” anyone who displeases him.
“At first, I thought he’d bust out laughing or something or that he was playing around, but it changed his entire mood. He was dead serious.”
Instead of banishing his foe to a cornfield, as Anthony did, Jacko would wish Spielberg into “Jew hell,” the maid said.
One former housekeeper who worked at the mansion of Jacko’s mother in Encino, California, and at his Los Angeles condo, said the pop star would regularly send out three staffers to buy any magazines they could find that had pictures of his family.
“He was on a mission. There was an old Ebony magazine in which he saw a picture of . . . the Jackson 5. He didn’t like it, and so he would send people out with about $500, and when they brought the magazines back, he’d play a game of confetti where he’d shred pictures of his brothers and sisters and even his parents and throw them all around the halls and into the guest quarters,” Maid No. 1 said.
“He said, ‘Yuck, they don’t deserve to have my name, they are gutless moochers. I’m the only star. They should be cleaning my shoes.’ ”
