Michael Jackson has been the center of alleged sexual assault claims numerous times, even after his death, & a new docuseries will be released at the Sundance Film Festival on January 25. Following it’s release there, it will be available to watch on HBO. “Leaving Neverland” is directed by The Paedophile Hunter director Dan Reed. Leaving Neverland tells the alleged story of two boys, Wade Robson (who was a choreographer for Britney Spears & *NSYNC), & James Safechuck, who are now in their 30’s, & both claim they were sexually abused by The King of Pop when they were 7 & 10. A rep of Jackson’s estate called Leaving Neverland “just another rehash of dated and discredited allegations” against the Thriller singer. Dan Reed said, “If there’s anything we’ve learned during this time in our history, it’s that sexual abuse is complicated, and survivors’ voices need to be listened to. It took great courage for these two men to tell their stories and I have no question about their validity. I believe anyone who watches this film will see and feel the emotional toll on the men and their families and will appreciate the strength it takes to confront long-held secrets.” Channel 4 Specialist Factual commissioner Tom Porter “Dan Reed has succeeded in making an extraordinarily compelling, yet moving film about two men whose lives were changed forever by one of the most famous men who ever lived. Channel 4 is immensely proud to have commissioned this film and created the opportunity for James’ and Wade’s experiences to be so sensitively told.” -
