Michael Jackson's nephew has accused Wade Robson of taking aim at his uncle in a damning new documentary because he didn't land a spot in the King of Pop's Cirque Du Soleil show.

The Michael Jackson estate has been trying to discredit the documentary and has also sued HBO for broadcasting it, claiming that violates a non-disparagement clause in the contract over the broadcast rights to the Bucharest concert, which HBO aired in 1992, according to the same source.

"I had no understanding of it being abuse".

Meanwhile, The Blast has obtained a copy of the In a letter Robson wrote to Cirque boss Jean-Francois Bouchard, asking for a job in his new Michael Jackson show in 2011, stating, "There are very few subjects I know about more than Michael Jackson".

If karma is real after @Oprah is laid to rest, which I hope is many years from now, ppl will come out of the woodwork to lie on, betray and besmirch her name the way it is being done to Michael Jackson. "I was a little boy..." Through on-camera interviews, they recalled how they each first met the music icon and later, became closer and closer with the pop star. "'Wade Robson and James Safechuck have both testified under oath that Michael never did anything inappropriate toward them, ' the statement read".

The explosive documentary comes after reports that Michael's estate was filing a $100 million lawsuit in a bid to halt the release of Leaving Neverland. My life is over.' It was repeated over and over and over again. "It's just drilled into your nervous system", Safechuck told Winfrey, adding that this mantra triggered a panic in him over the years whenever the opportunity to come forward with his story presented itself.

"One of the interesting things about Michael, and his particular situation, is that the grooming had started long before we ever met him". "I want you to be the best I have high expectations for your talent".

In the special dubbed After Neverland, Winfrey referenced her own history as a survivor of childhood sexual abuse - but did not mention the famous interview she held with Jackson at his Neverland ranch in 1993, which occurred just before the first public accusations dropped against him.
