Michael Jackson’s Family Defends His Legacy In ‘Neverland Firsthand,’ A New Documentary

A month after HBO aired the bombshell two-part documentary Leaving Neverland, Michael Jackson's family have struck back with a documentary of their own. He's saying that my uncle kept him from women, which is not true.

Having firmly denounced the allegations of child sexual abuse levelled at Michael Jackson in Leaving Neverland, the Jackson family have now taken it a further step by releasing Neverland Firsthand: Investigating the Michael Jackson Documentary on YouTube.

Ms Jackson, who claims to have had an on-off relationship with Mr Robson for 10 years, lasting into their late teens, said Mr Robson lied to her when she approached him about allegations of cheating on her.

"Not in a million years did I ever see a child around Michael Jackson that looked like they had been distressed, hurt, abused", he told Liam the producer. "I can't put my hand on a bible and say, 'Absolutely nothing happened in that room.' There just wasn't a sense of [any] wrongdoing".

Michael's long-time technical director Brad Sundberg is also interviewed in the new documentary, as he regularly stayed at Neverland Ranch. "[Neverland] was such a peaceful, safe, fun place".

Modi asserted that the opposition parties could stoop to any level to remove him from power. He said 68 percent of the cases were found to be correct and action initiated.

Robson is appealing the dismissal of a lawsuit that claimed MJ abused him for years when he was a child.

The half-hour documentary attempts to refute claims made by Wade Robson and James Safechuck against Jackson by highlighting inconsistencies in the allegations made in their lawsuits against the Jackson estate.

It is not clear what "overwhelming evidence" they have to prove he's lying, although they do cite his mother's 1994 testimony, where she said MJ was "innocent". According to court documents obtained by PEOPLE, executors for the estate claim that airing the film violates a non-disparagement clause in a 1992 contract, written ahead of a televised concert that year - in which HBO agreed to not speak ill of Jackson. "This film was not made to degrade victims or devalue their statements".

MJ's estate says they're fighting his appeal claims because "Michael Jackson is dead, and that Robson missed the probate claims filing deadlines by several years".
