Michael Jackson’s family is speaking out against the documentary Leaving Neverland that is set to premiere on HBO this Sunday.
In the new documentary, Wade Robson and James Safechuck claim that they were molested by Jackson when they were young, and the Jackson family doesn’t like any parts of the show and will not be watching.
In their first interview about the documentary, Jackie Jackson said, “No. I know my brother. I know my brother. He’s not like that.” The family is suing HBO for airing the documentary and say it’s just “a one-sided marathon of unvetted propaganda to exploit an innocent man no longer here to defend himself.”
