Actor Corey Feldman Defends Michael Jackson Following 'Leaving Neverland' Premiere


Meanwhile, Jackson's estate countered with new concert footage that ran at the same time as the documentary's premiere.

It's unclear so far whether the Jackson concert or "Leaving Neverland" proved more popular, since HBO has not released ratings.

Reports suggest Robson was attached to the show but took another job and when that didn't work out, he tried to get his old post back, telling Bouchard: "You will not have to worry about my commitment level again".

"They know what everyone else is talking about tonight and they hope this move will deflect the trajectory of the asteroid that is plummeting towards them", he wrote.

Robson, 36, and Safechuck, 40, claim in the film they were groomed by the Thriller singer, and allege the abuse started when they were 7 and 10 years old. He also had an Indian fort with like tepees so we would lay down sleeping and have snacks and have sexual relations there.

"You and I were brought together by God".

In the film Safechuck claimed the late singer gifted him with an expensive diamond ring ahead of "wedding" him in a ceremony held in his bedroom. People are ignorant and they would never understand that we love each other and this is how we show it.

He added that Jackson used to lavish him with jewellery in return for "doing sexual acts to him".

Now, the men claim they received death threats in the wake of the documentary's premiere, while the estate of Michael Jackson has called it a "tabloid character assassination". Hit the gallery to see the reactions to Leaving Neverland below.

"Oprah's never been on team", the nephew says.

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 frightful stories have validity, so do we then need to subject ourselves to the actual experience? "I don't know where it came from but that became my name from him". Bringing the world together.

With King, the men discussed previously denying they had been molested by Jackson in the past.

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. He started calling me apple head.
