LOS ANGELES – Taj Jackson, the nephew of pop legend Michael Jackson, has started a crowdfunding campaign to make a documentary about his deceased uncle. Taj wants to raise 777,000 dollars (683,810 euros) to tell ‘the truth’ behind Michael’s alleged sexual abuse.
Taj started the project in response to the documentary Leaving Neverland, which can be seen this month at the Sundance Film Festival. In that documentary, one Wade Robson tells that he was abused for seven years by The King of Pop.
Robson, because of his confession in the docu, was considered a liar by the family of Michael, because in a previous lawsuit against the artist in 2005 he claimed at high and low that he had never been touched by the pop star.
So far, Taj has raised over 11,000 euros.
