Michael Jackson’s family have released their own documentary in response to the controversial HBO documentary ‘Leaving Neverland’.
The family of the late King of Pop – who passed away in 2009 – have released ‘Neverland Firsthand’, investigating the Michael Jackson Documentary’ on YouTube.
The 30-minute film aims to refute allegations of child sexual abuse against the ‘Thriller’ hitmaker made in the HBO documentary by Wade Robson and James Safechuck, who both befriended Michael as children.
Prior to his passing, Michael repeatedly denied any wrongdoing and was acquitted in 2005 in a different child s3x abuse case, where Wade testified on his behalf.
‘Neverland Firsthand’ features interviews with Michael’s nephew Taj Jackson and niece Brandi Jackson, as well as with his longtime technical director Brad Sundberg, who regularly stayed at Michael’s Neverland Ranch estate and says he never saw any children at the ranch who looked “abused”.
Whilst Brandi slammed Wade – whom she dated for seven years said in the film:
He has always been a bit of an opportunist. He knows how to position himself in different situations that will benefit him in a financial way.
However, an attorney for Wade has discredited Brandi’s claims.
In a statement, the attorney said: “Ms. Jackson was not with Wade and Michael Jackson when the s3xual abuse occurred, and as such, she has nothing relevant to say about the topic.”
In the wake of the ‘Leaving Neverland’ documentary, Mpasho reported that MJ was being accused of being a child s3x predator by his former maid Adrian McManus.
