Corey Feldman Casts Doubt On "Leaving Neverland" Claims From Michael Jackson Accusers
In the new two part-series on HBO, Leaving Neverland, Michael Jackson's relationships with young boys were called into question once again, sparking debates that he really was a sexual predator as James Safechuck and Wade Robson have said.
Corey Feldman, who hung around Michael Jackson when he was a child star in the 1980s, came to Michael's defense on Twitter following the premiere of HBO's new series. The Lost Boys star claimed that Michael never touched him inappropriately or made sexual remarks, ever.
"He never touched me inappropriately," the infamous child star remarked, adding that Michael had an innocence about him that was not sexual or explicit in any way. Corey did speak on the similarities between his own experience and that of James and Wade, however.
Corey stated that it all appeared to be true right up until the "sex part," as he referred to it. According to Feldman, he and Michael did talk and befriend one another but there was never sexual intercourse as James and Wade claimed in the docu-series.
As it was previously reported, Robson, 36, and Safechuck, 40, claim they were "groomed" by Michael as young boys to be in a sexual relationship with him.
For years, they never questioned it until they became adults and realized just how wrong it was. James and Wade claim Michael began abusing them between the ages of seven and ten. You can check out some of Corey's tweets below:
The Goonies actor went on to say that if only people could hear what it was like to talk to Michael, they would see no hints of "perversion" or sexuality at all.
Michael Jackson's estate has stated Leaving Neverland was mostly "one-sided" and based on testimony from two "proven liars." Moreover, representatives from Michael's $500,000,000 yearly estate have stated that Wade and James' intentions are purely monetary.
Leaving Neverland came out shortly after the release of the highly successful and talked about series on Lifetime, Surviving R. Kelly. The allegations against Michael became the most controversial amid his criminal trial in the mid-2000s for which he was exonerated, as R. Kelly was in 2008.
