A Michael Jackson Concert Dropped On YouTube Just As Controversial Doco Premiered

The two-part documentary explores the separate but parallel experiences of two young boys, James "Jimmy" Safechuck, at age ten, and Wade Robson, at age seven, both of whom were befriended by Michael Jackson. The Jackson family has already spoken out about the documentary calling it "a public lynching". 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. "These statements about me are totally false", Jackson said in 1993, live from the Neverland Valley.

Safechuck was nine years old when he worked with Jackson on a Pepsi commercial, prompting trips around the world with Jackson.

I've had conversations with friends in which we've wondered if the actual process of watching the documentary is even necessary-we already know what it's about, and we already generally believe that these terrible stories have validity, so do we then need to subject ourselves to the actual experience?

Taj Jackson, the singer's nephew, turned his focus on the two accusers in defence of his uncle, claiming they did not have any credibility. "I don't know where it came from but that became my name from him". HBO will move forward with the airing of Leaving Neverland. "Making kids happy. That's the kind of person he was".

"Michael's training of me to testify began the first night that he started abusing me", Robson alleged.

While Jackson was never convicted of sexually abusing children and the allegations were something he continually denied and fought off, the language Robson used is similar to things victims of child sexual abuse have said when describing perpetrators and their explanations for their actions.

Allegations of sexual abuse by Jackson first arose in the 1990s and followed him for several decades.
