Urbanites are experiencing a myriad of emotions regarding yet another explosive and damning documentary filled with dispiriting tales of alleged pedophilia perpetrated by an all-time great entertainer.
HBO films have just produced a trailer for its two-part documentary on the late legendary Michael Jackson who is accused of being a serial sexual abuser of children. The HBO film, “Leaving Neverland,” premiered to jaw-dropped audiences at the 2019 Sundance Film Festive in January. It is scheduled to air in March.
The Dan Reed-produced “Leaving Neverland” feature two boys, then aged 7 and 10, who allegedly began long-standing relationships with the late singer at the peak of his popularity in the 1980s.
Jackson died 10 years ago at age 50 from taking the powerful anesthesia propofol to help him sleep nightly.
In the nearly two-minute trailer, old photos and videos of James Safechuck, now 37, and Wade Robson, now 41, paint a picture of the two as innocent boys who were victimized repeatedly by the Off the Wall and Thriller hitmaker.
“The days were filled with magical, childhood adventure experiences. Playing tag, watching movies, eating junk food. Anything you could ever want as a child,” Robson said in the trailer.
Robson said Jackson scared him half to death when the “Billie Jean” lyricist allegedly told him the consequences of letting the world know what they were doing privately.
“He told me if they ever found out what we were doing, he and I would go to jail for the rest of our lives. I want to be able to speak the truth as loud as I had to speak the lie for so long.”
As previously reported, the original lead singer of the Jackson 5, Jermaine Jackson, issued a statement lambasting the portrayal of his late brother in the new documentary:
“A documentary titled ‘Leaving Neverland’ is planned to be shown to 40,000 people at the Sundance Film Festival. The producer of the film is Dan Reed. This film is based on the falsified claims of molestation by the hands of Michael Jackson. As Michael’s innocence was proven by a court of law and a 10-year FBI investigation, this is legally considered defamation of character. This mendacious documentary should NOT see the light of day.”
