Michael Jackson banned by BBC Radio 2 ahead of Leaving Neverland

About 20 minutes into the premiere of documentary Leaving Neverland part one, the Michael Jackson estate uploaded an entire concert movie to YouTube.

"Leaving Neverland" is yet to air in the United Kingdom or Australia but early reports portray a revolting life of continuous child abuse, with victims Wade Robson and James Safechuck (now 36 and 40) making allegations that they were groomed by Jackson from age 7 and sexually assaulted by the star through to the age of 14.

The long-anticipated HBO documentary Leaving Neverland premiered on March 3, 2019, and made many shocking allegations against the King of Pop.

Some have pointed out that it simply isn't normal for a grown man to make special friends with children and take them on trips around the world or develop intimate friendships the way Michael Jackson did.

The Jackson estate's Twitter account posted a link to the film about 20 minutes into Part 1 of "Leaving Neverland", announcing that "Live in Bucharest (The Dangerous Tour)", from 1992, would be available for a "limited time".

Rocker Jerry Lee Lewis suffers stroke
Born in Louisiana, Lewis began his career at the famous Sun Records, which also played a key part in the careers of Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash.

The contract contained a non-disparagement clause relating to content featuring Jackson in the future.

It said in a statement: "Despite the desperate lengths taken to undermine the film, our plans remain unchanged". They go into graphic detail in the film as to what Jackson did to them including claims of masturbation, oral sex and penetration.

"He set it up like I'm going to show you something that everybody does and you'll enjoy it", he said.

The two-part documentary containing the allegations will air on HBO and Channel 4 this week.

Both Safechuck and Robson have denied being molested by Jackson in the past, Robson even appearing as part of the Jackson defence in his 2005 abuse trial, something both men have come under criticism for.
