"Leaving Neverland": Michael Jackson estate releases concerts while HBO documentary airs


Vanity Fair has a piece called "10 Undeniable Facts About the Michael Jackson Sexual-Abuse Allegations", and it barely scratches the surface.

Jackson's family and estate deny all the allegations, branding the programme "an outrageous and pathetic attempt to exploit and cash in". The judge in the case ruled that Jackson's estate could not be held responsible for Jackson's actions.

In a statement obtained by PEOPLE, HBO responded: "Despite the desperate lengths taken to undermine the film, our plans remain unchanged".

In the film, Safechuck, who stated that he kept the brochure about Neverland from when Jackson was debating whether to buy it, said that before Jackson purchased the estate he told the boy the purchase was for him.

Safechuck first met Jackson when they appeared together in a Pepsi commercial.

The first instalment of the two-part film Leaving Neverland aired on HBO in the United States last night, after premiering at the Sundance Film Festival.

Video showing the pilot - blindfolded and with blood on his face - was shared by Pakistan's information ministry. India has accused Pakistan of having a "direct hand" in the attack and providing sanctuary to the militants.

"He would say that I need to sell him some so I could earn the gift", Safechuck alleged.

"But the weirdest thing about Michael Jackson which, I think, encouraged my suspicions about him as a human being was when he talked about charity and children he had this very soft and high pitched voice". After going back and forth on this, I've come to the conclusion that yes, we do.

Feldman, who is in the process of exposing alleged pedophiles in Hollywood who he claims sexually abused him and others, concedes that the pair deserves to have its voice heard, but its versions of events don't match up with the Jackson he knew. "Making kids happy. That's the kind of person he was". In the trial, Jackson's family noted that at Jackson's 2005 trial, Robson had testified defending Jackson, saying Jackson had never touched him.

Robson and Safechuck also sat down with King in an interview that aired last Thursday and stood by their allegations.

Leaving Neverland features new Michael Jackson abuse allegations that have had the entertainment world in an uproar since the project was announced.
