Michael Jackson’s closest pals release Amazon doc slamming Leaving Neverland accusers as ‘liars, mon – The Sun
14 August 2019 NEWS
MICHAEL Jackson’s friends have branded his Leaving Neverland accusers “liars and money-grabbers” in a startling new documentary.
The film, which is available on Amazon, is a direct rebuttal to the sensational Dan Reed-directed HBO doc which detailed allegations from “child sex abuse” accusers Wade Robson and James Safechuck.
Michael Jackson: Chase the Truth features interviews with Jacko defenders such as biographer Mike Smallcombe, former child star Mark Lester and the entertainer’s ex-bodyguard Matt Fiddes.
Oliver actor Lester, who was best friends with the Thriller singer, brandedLeaving Neverland“unbalanced” adding: “It made me feel sick.”
The doc details how Robson and Safechuck took out an unsuccessful civil action against the Jackson estate before making the documentary.
Courts in LA ruled that the singer’s estatecould not be held accountable for any alleged crimes he may ave committed.
British writer Smallcombe, who penned a biography about Jackson, said that with all Jackson accusers “it’s always been about money”.
What was claimed in Leaving Neverland?
In the documentary, Robson and Safechuck claimed Jackson had abused them after befriending them as young children.
Safechuck, now 41, claimed he was molested until he was 14, including in a room at a train station on the Neverland Ranch.
Child dancer Robson, now 36, claims he was molested at Neverland Ranch by the King of Pop when he was aged just seven.
The documentary was branded a “horror film” in the US after its debut revealed gruesome accounts from the alleged victims .
It left audience members shocked with graphic abuse claims including how Jacko gave one of the boys jewellery for sex.
However, the Jackson family have hit back at the allegations and compared the hounding of Michael to a “public lynching”.
Former bodyguard Fiddes added: “There’s no evidence. It’s always money, it’s always financial.”
The film also addresses the fact that both Robson and Safechuck defended Jackson under oath at various times when they were younger.
Smallcombe said: “While it can’t completely be ruled out that Michael Jackson abused Safechuck and Robson.. you never know.
“I can’t sit here and say Michael Jackson is innocent and this definitely didn’t happen but what I can say is that at least half a dozen things are inconsistent.”
He added: “When money is involved you need to be wary. Jimmy and Wade are perjurers.”
The biographer then details alleged inaccuracies in Leaving Neverland – notably the building of a train station which Safechuck claims he was molested in.
Smallcombe obtained the blueprints of the building which proved that the structure was built after the dates the accuser claimed the abuse took place.
Michael Jackson strongly denied all allegations of sexual misconduct made against him.
