But not even the resurrection of Jackson himself could distract from the claims brought to light by Wade Robson, an Australian former child dancing star, and Jimmy Safechuck. This is a moment in time that allows us to see this societal corruption.
Michael Jackson's estate released a two-hour concert video on YouTube, Sunday, just as HBO premiered the first part of its explosive new documentary Leaving Neverland, prompting criticism that the late singer's family was deflecting from horrific allegations of sexual abuse.
While the documentary has received mixed reviews since airing on Sunday night (Mar. 3), fans of Jackson have been harassing Winfrey online for conducting the interviews with the two men. There is no question from the documentary that they were both unfit and irresponsible parents.
"He helped me tremendously, he helped me with my career he helped me with my creativity all of those sorts of things".
In the documentary Robson recounted his experience to the camera, saying: "I was seven-years-old". He said, "We would get a blanket and we would lie it on the floor in the closet, so we could close the door". "It was very much a secret, he would tell me that if anybody found out his life would over and my life would be over".

Leaving Neverland features new Michael Jackson abuse allegations that have had the entertainment world in an uproar since the project was announced. Others, such as writer Peter Sagal, mused how some of Jackson's fans would defend his sexual relations with children before defending President Donald Trump's locker room talk about women. But i was there around the same time as Jimmy and I saw many kids around (girls included) who I am still friends with to this day and none of us were ever approached by him in a sexual way at all.
When asked why he wanted to continue to be around Jackson if he was a molester, Robson said he did not understand that it was abuse.
I've had conversations with friends in which we've wondered if the actual process of watching the documentary is even necessary-we already know what it's about, and we already generally believe that these disgusting stories have validity, so do we then need to subject ourselves to the actual experience?
Oprah Magazine says it was time to say goodbye to Michael Jackson, separating the artist from the man was no longer good enough. Despite the split, it was impossible to ignore Jackson's fans, who slammed the HBO documentary as "a slap in the face to real victims" and a "big bucket of bullshit". Robson said after a few days there, the family agreed to leave their son alone with Jackson, which is when the alleged abuse began.
Safechuck claimed that Jackson assaulted him at 10 different spots around the property.
