Michael Jackson's estate came out in defense of the performer after it was revealed a new documentary based on Jackson's supposed treatment of children was on its way. As most know, Jackson was involved in an intensely publicized court battle, charges for which he was inevitably exonerated.

People Magazine reported that the new movie, Leaving Neverland , is about to appear at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival on the 25th of January, and it follows the story of two men, who claim to have made friends with Jackson when they were between the ages of 7 and 10.

The two individuals, who were boys at the time of their relationship with Michael, claim they had been "sexually abused" and "manipulated" by the performer. Even though the two men's identities weren't featured in the documentary, reports claim Wade Robson and James Safechuck "testified under the oath" that the singer never touched them inappropriately, insinuating it was both Wade and James in the flick.

The statement released by Michael's estate said it's just another "outrageous and pathetic" attempt to make money off Michael's long line of success and influence. It added that both men testified that Michael never did anything with them sexual.

Moreover, the statement released claimed the two individuals had filed lawsuits against his estate for millions of dollars, and both cases were thrown out by the court. Describing the two men as "masters of deception," the King Of Pop's estate claimed their allegations are just more discredited accusations.

Thus far, neither men have confirmed or disproved that it was the two of them in the documentary. Recently, Deadline revealed that both HBO and the United Kingdom's popular Channel 4 intend to air the documentary shortly after it's debut at the Sundance Film Festival.

Reportedly, the new documentary revolving around Michael Jackson has a lot to do with those against R. Kelly, which has made significant waves in recent weeks. While many in the past were quick to defend R. Kelly, performers such as John Legend and Chrissy Teigen no longer do so.

Other performers to hit out at Kelly include acclaimed rapper, Joyner Lucas, and Chance The Rapper, in addition to Columbus Short, and many others.

    Yes, everyone is aware of the trials because mass media made sure to publicize it. What Most people don't know is the FBI investigated MJ for Years and released their report many months After he died. Mass media Did Not report that. Why? The FBI report stated they found No Proof MJ Ever Molested Anyone. Now why wouldn't media want to report that? The Only Media I saw cover it was TMZ. Corruption at its finest in trying to make sure MJ's legacy is that of a molester.

    Leave Michael Jackson Alone. Michael was found NOT Guilty in 2005. Wade is who Leaving Neverland is about. Wade testified under oath when he was 23 years old to many questions that were direct as to where Michael touched him and he denied MJ touched him in the area of his privates his hips etc, areas that would suggest abuse without him referring to the word abuse. Either he committed Perjury then, which is a crime or he is lying now. Considering his attempt to go to work for the Estate and take on a job where he would be reminded every minute of MJ, that seems like a really odd job for him to want. He did not get the job and then the sued the estate for 60 million. MJ is dead and can't defend himself. How convenient for Wade and his lawyer. Wade lost that case. Wade must have forgotten all those wonderful things he said about MJ for the Michael Jackson Opus, he must have forgotten he wanted MJ at his wedding. HBO should be ashamed to carry such an unprovable story. MJ name is MONEY he has millions of fans and the media has NO ethics. Don't bother to watch this. MJ has been dead for almost 10 years. Wade does not care if he hurts MJ children or how this will affect them. Money is what matters. There are real abuse cases that never get this much attention.
