At the upcoming Sundance Film Festival the documentary Leaving Neverland premieres, in which the charges for sexual abuse against Michael Jackson are highlighted.
he documentary describes how The King of Pop entered into long-term relationships with two boys, then 7 and 10 years old. The two are now both in their thirties and claim to have been sexually abused by the singer. They reveal in the film how they have learned to live with this.
The jackals Jackson are not happy with the documentary, says variety . “This is another disgusting way to make money on Michael Jackson’s back, it’s an enumeration of old news, unbelievable that a filmmaker would want to write something like that on his name.”
Neverland refers to the estate where Jackson used to live. In 2003, a raid was made after reports of abuse of a 13-year-old boy. A lawsuit started against Jackson, who in 2005 was acquitted of no less than 14 charges against him.
