Michael Jackson concert films aired to distract from documentary

Adjust Comment Print

It's unclear so far whether the Jackson concert or "Leaving Neverland" proved more popular, since HBO has not released ratings.

Leaving Neverland features allegations from Wade Robson, now 36, and James Safechuck, now 40, that Jackson sexually abused them from the ages of seven and 10. A day before, Jackson's Twitter account announced a 1992 concert, "Live In Bucharest", would be released on YouTube - also Sunday at 8 p.m.

Don't miss the magic from the King of Pop himself!

In a tremendous piece for the New York Times, the always-excellent Wesley Morris writes about how watching Leaving Neverland made him feel, and forced him to reckon with his very deep, lifelong fandom of Jackson.

Robson and Safechuck hit paydirt with filmmaker Dan Reed.

"That's a profoundly tone-deaf response to allegations of sexual abuse", user @tedgesing wrote. The judge in the case ruled that Jackson's estate could not be held responsible for Jackson's actions. They hear the tone. But "oh, gee, it just kinda sounds like a bummer" is not one of them.

Many agreed with the claim that the family shared the concerts as a means of distraction.

Feldman has been vocal about childhood sexual abuse in Hollywood and has previously said he was molested.

It docked autonomously under the station astronauts' watchful eyes, instead of relying on the station's robot arm for berthing. SpaceX's new crew capsule arrived at the International Space Station on Sunday, acing its second milestone in just over a day.

"You and I were brought together by God".

He then suggested Robson and Safechuck were looking for a payday or retribution for "abandonment" by Jackson. "This is how we show love". Safechuck went on to allege that Jackson used jewelry to control him, saying that he had to "earn the gift" by performing sexual acts with the musician.

A full statement from the family is posted here.

Two co-executors of the singer's estate and Optimum Productions sued HBO and its parent company, Time Warner, for $100 million in February, claiming that the network's decision to air Leaving Neverland violated a non-disparagement clause, according to court documents obtained by PEOPLE. HBO will move forward with the airing of Leaving Neverland.

"Oprah's never been on team", the nephew says.

"I know my brother", Jackie, 67, said. "That is where it becomes La La Land, instead of Neverland for me". Bringing the world together.

Even though he was plagued by accusations of child abuse from the early 1990s until his death, fans had found a way to separate the music from the man and enjoy the genius that was Michael Jackson. He started calling me apple head.
