Michael Jackson Estate Releases Concert Film During 'Leaving Neverland' Premiere

Fans of pop icon Michael Jackson have hit out at a controversial documentary detailing allegations of child sexual abuse against the singer.

"Leaving Neverland" is yet to air in the United Kingdom or Australia but early reports portray a revolting life of continuous child abuse, with victims Wade Robson and James Safechuck (now 36 and 40) making allegations that they were groomed by Jackson from age 7 and sexually assaulted by the star through to the age of 14. Its run time is two hours, the same as part one of Leaving Neverland.

Safechuck also said he would spend weeks at a time in Neverland Ranch, with his mother sleeping in a guest room while Safechuck stayed with Jackson in the main house. He added, "Me and Michael would be there a lot together, we would go for like a week at a time". They and their families were invited into his wondrous world, entranced by the singer's fairy-tale existence as his career reached its peak. Robson and Safechuck both alleged vividly that Jackson introduced them to kissing, fondling, pornography, masturbation, oral sex, mock marriages and eventually failed anal penetration during their friendships with the "Bad" singer. The question is whether we'll remember all of Michael Jackson whenever "Rock With You" comes on, not just the dance moves and videos and irresistible hits, but Jackson's own troubled childhood and the huge damage he caused to children who became close to him later in life. Safechuck stated, "He said I am going to purchase this house".

In more recent years Robson would later (unsuccessfully) apply for a job with the Jackson family as a choreographer for the Immortal live shows.


Oprah Winfrey, herself a survivor of child sexual abuse, has been bombarded with hate-filled messages ahead of her interview with his accusers scheduled to air immediately after the conclusion to the two-part documentary.

The actor, who is now an ambassador for the organization Child USA, insisted he only has "fond" memories of Jackson said God will be the judge of Robson and Safechuck.

"It's four hours because it's the history of two families over 20 years", Reed explained. People are ignorant and they would never understand that we love each other and this is how we show it.

"Michael's training of me to testify began the first night that he started abusing me", Robson alleged. "Anything that Michael did was right to me, for so many years".
