A new documentary defending Michael Jackson has been released.
The hour-long film, titled Chase The Truth, has been created to defend the late King of Pop following the controversial “Leaving Neverland” documentary, which aired earlier this year, and explored accusations made by Wade Robson, 36, and James Safechuck, 41.
The film featuring interviews with Jackson’s biographer Mike Smallcombe, former bodyguard Matt Fiddes and actor Mark Lester, has been released on Amazon Prime, YouTube and other streaming services.
Through an Instagram post, Fiddes invited Leaving Neverland director Dan Reed, along with Robson and Safechuck, to challenge him “live on air” regarding Jackson and the allegations made.
Fiddes wrote: “So the ‘Factual’ documentary about the “real” #Michael Jackson is being released around the world right now! Thank you so much for your feedback and kind words!
“So glad it’s exceeded your expectations and I expect Robson and Safechuck are hiding behind a rock along with Dan Reed somewhere with embarrassment right now!
I would love to invite Robson, Safechuck and Dan Reed to come and challenge us on live UK TV about the man we knew, our friend @michaeljackson and let’s have @tajjackson with it too and @brandijackson82 and see how they got on! Maybe @piersmorgan too!
“I may even throw in some free martial arts lessons for Wade, James and Dan Reed if you come over to the UK, but I doubt you will face us as we know the truth and your gutless!
“We don’t need four hours of edited footage to show the truth about our friend Michael Jackson and the lies about him. I have had enough of this nonsense. We told the truth in one hour!
“He is not even here to defend himself. You should be ashamed of [yourselves]. Thank you to all the fans! And sorry for the wait as everyone involved wanted it to be perfect.
I believe this crushes “Leaving Neverland” and I hope stops the documentary winning the nominations for the Emmy awards!! Complete madness!
“Thoughts are with Mrs. Jackson and the whole Jackson family. They have been through so much including Michael’s children. As Michael used to say to me. ‘The bigger the star, the bigger the target’ and he is still the biggest in death.
“He was unique and it’s hard to explain who Michael really was unless you knew him. Most geniuses and gifted people are different. He is an easy target as he was so humble!
“And [he] will always be the greatest entertainer of all time whom will all miss so much! Friends stick together. Love to you all.”
In the HBO documentary “Leaving Neverland,” Safechuck and Robson claimed that they were abused by the late King of Pop when they joined him on tour as children.
Robson alleged he was sexually abused by Jackson from the age of seven until 14, while Safechuck claimed he was a victim from the age of 10 until he hit puberty.
The movie’s director Reed defended the documentary and claimed that it shows the other side to what he called Jackson’s “Peter Pan-ish image.”
