The Shocking Revelations of HBO's Michael Jackson Documentary 'Leaving Neverland'

Here's who has joined Chris Evans in switching from Radio 2 to Virgin

"Leaving Neverland" director Dan Reed sat down at the Variety Studio at Sundance to talk making the Michael Jackson abuse documentary that's made waves since its debut at the Park City festival.

Leaving Neverland: Michael Jackson and Me airs Wednesday and Thursday at 9pm on Channel 4.

For some viewers, there might be a sense of déjà vu to this latest controversial documentary: That second trial can partially be traced back to public criticism over Jackson's odd behavior in another documentary, 2003's Living With Michael Jackson, which was built around an extended interview between the artist and British journalist Martin Bashir. They and their families were invited into his wondrous world, entranced by the singer's fairy-tale existence as his career reached its peak.

Safechuck said in the movie, "We had this mock wedding ceremony".

"I loved Michael and all the times that I testified and many, many times that I gushed over him publicly in interviews or whatever it may be, um, that was from a real place, you know", he told Oprah.

"He set it up like I'm going to show you something that everybody does and you'll enjoy it", he said.




He then suggested Robson and Safechuck were looking for a payday or retribution for "abandonment" by Jackson. The tour was the start of this sexual, like, couple relationship.

Safechuck said that his mother nearly caught the alleged abuse at the theater once. "It's not a feat of investigative journalism so much as an act of bearing witness", Morris writes, explaining exactly why I think Leaving Neverland should be experienced by someone like me in all its four hours. In fact, child star Corey Feldman, who was a close friend of Jackson, took issue with the portrayal of the singer in the documentary. Robson said after a few days there, the family agreed to leave their son alone with Jackson, which is when the alleged abuse began.

Their moms (who come off especially clueless) were perhaps even more willingly seduced. He started calling me apple head. "Anything that Michael did was right to me, for so many years".

In 2013, Robson filed a lawsuit targeting Jackson's estate that asked for $1.62 billion in damages.

In a response tweet, user @hatergene argued that the response was "perfectly on brand" for Jackson's estate. According to a statement, both concerts are only available for "a limited time".
