Miko Brando Refutes Story Of Father Marlon Bringing Michael Jackson To Tears During Dinner Conversation
According to a report from Page Six, the son of Marlon Brando, Miko, is not pleased with the recent report that his father supposedly managed to reduce Michael Jackson to tears one evening during a dinner engagement.
Miko wrote a letter to the LA Times, in which he said that he and his father knew Michael Jackson very well. Miko, for instance, was friends with the late pop star for over 27 years and Marlon "adored" Mr. Jackon right up until his death.
Miko said that his father's words were being contorted by the media to make it appear as though Michael had hurt someone. As it was previously reported, a new podcast, Telephone Stories: The Trials of Michael Jackson , claimed they had found sworn testimony from Marlon Brando during a telephone conversation at the singer's investigation in 1994.
The LA Times reported that Ogborn verified the authenticity of the letter with Lauren Weis, who was the investigator and LA prosecutor at the time of the case. Weis is now a judge.
Ogborn said in the podcast that the document was very "meandering" and all over the place, stating that Brando would probably get "canceled" if he were still around.
Reportedly, Ogborn asked Jackson who his friends were, and Michael told him he didn't like anyone his own age. After probing the singer on his sexual orientation, Marlon said Jackson started to cry and he tried to make him feel better, but nothing could get him to stop.
At the end of the transcript, The Times reported Brando as saying that it was pretty reasonable to come to the conclusion that Michael may have been involved in some way with children. Miko, who was once the driver for Michael as well, said that Marlon would never be friends with Michael if he knew that he was hurting children.
The allegations against Michael came to the forefront again with the release of the explosive documentary, Leaving Neverland, which supposedly had many viewers upset.
