Michael Jackson Estate Slams “Tabloid Character Assassination” Sundance Documentary

Published: Saturday 26th Jan 2019 by Sam

Michael Jackson‘s Estate are wasting no time clapping back at a controversial documentary about the late King Of Pop.

‘Leaving Neverland’ premiered at the Sundance Film Festival last night and polarized.

With a broadcast set for the Spring, team MJ are getting in front of the matter and pointing a number of interesting points about the doc.

The full statement awaits below…

Leaving Neverland isn’t a documentary, it is the kind of tabloid character assassination Michael Jackson endured in life, and now in death. The film takes uncorroborated allegations that supposedly happened 20 years ago and treats them as fact. These claims were the basis of lawsuits filed by these two admitted liars which were ultimately dismissed by a judge. The two accusers testified under oath that these events never occurred. They have provided no independent evidence and absolutely no proof in support of their accusations, which means the entire film hinges solely on the word of two perjurers.

Tellingly, the director admitted at the Sundance Film Festival that he limited his interviews only to these accusers and their families. In doing so, he intentionally avoided interviewing numerous people over the years who spent significant time with Michael Jackson and have unambiguously stated that he treated children with respect and did nothing hurtful to them. By choosing not to include any of these independent voices who might challenge the narrative that he was determined to sell, the director neglected fact checking so he could craft a narrative so blatantly one-sided that viewers never get anything close to a balanced portrait.

For 20 years, Wade Robson denied in court and in numerous interviews, including after Michael passed, that he was a victim and stated he was grateful for everything Michael had done for him. His family benefitted from Michael’s kindness, generosity and career support up until Michael’s death. Conveniently left out of Leaving Neverland was the fact that when Robson was denied a role in a Michael Jackson themed Cirque du Soleil production, his assault allegations suddenly emerged.

We are extremely sympathetic to any legitimate victim of child abuse. This film, however, does those victims a disservice. Because despite all the disingenuous denials made that this is not about money, it has always been about money – millions of dollars — dating back to 2013 when both Wade Robson and James Safechuck, who share the same law firm, launched their unsuccessful claims against Michael’s Estate. Now that Michael is no longer here to defend himself, Robson, Safechuck and their lawyers continue their efforts to achieve notoriety and a payday by smearing him with the same allegations a jury found him innocent of when he was alive.

As for the critics, there’s been a mixed response, with one of the most shared being…

    Wade Robson is a certified 2 faced FRAUD!!!! He’s been blacklisted from Hollywood. No choreography gigs coming his way. Loser desperate for money.
    FYI: Wade Robson is the reason why Britney Spears & Justin Timberlake broke up as a couple back in the day. Let that sink in. #Dirtbag #Slave4UEra

      I agree. There are numerous people who can speak on MJ’s private life so anyone picking these two uncredible people pnly and refusing to interview others is making a biased mockumentary.

    The people who are praising this film on social media are happy to condemn a black man who is no longer around to defend themselves and believe the unsubstantiated claims of two men, but are largely silent on Bryan Singer

    • SMH January 26, 2019

      Exactly. And isn’t it interesting that Bryan Singer is still directing Red Sonja even though he now has NEW allegations, but R. Kelly was dropped from his label and his music removed from streaming services over OLD allegations. But folks will swear on their lives that ‘race has nothing to do with it’. ??

    Looking forward to see it.l. Any man that sleeps in the same bed as a child who isn’t related, has to have something wrong with them.
    Hopefully the truth will come out, but I think it will come out that he abused children, like some previous singers. People just don’t wanna think bad cause is so famous. Other will still listen to his music, even if he is a peado

    • SMH January 26, 2019

      You must be one of those social media idiots that believes everything you read on Twitter.

      • Gg January 26, 2019

        It’s not just on twitter though. It’s real people saying this. It’s on news websites across the world. Stop defending a peado.

  4. SMH January 26, 2019

    I have zero interest in this thing to begin with. It’s already a known fact that the so called accusers lied and were paid to lie by both the tabloids and the prosecution during the trial. Only social media idiots are giving this any attention because they’re still riding their R. Kelly high.

  5. Lol January 26, 2019

    It’s been almost TEN YEARS since we lost mike and people are still throwing dirt on his name for money and attention. It’s sad they even think these lame tv specials even do anything. No one believes them so why keep doing it? Leave Michael alone. The way people treat him and Whitney is just disgusting and disgraceful.

  6. DanYiel Iman January 26, 2019

    Sadly money will be made on Michael Jackson until forever!! These people don’t care about him or his family!!??‍♂️

  7. Fast_Persuader January 26, 2019

    These lying money hungry, evil pieces of scchiiitt Wade Robson, Jimmy Safechuck are STILL sleazing for an easy come-up after all these years.

    I’m SO looking forward to witnessing every detail of their lies coming to light, backfiring and blowing up in all their greedy faces.
