HBO has vowed to sire the controversial documentary about Michael Jackson – Leaving Neverland – despite a lawsuit against them.

The documentary is about sexual allegations against the singer which was made by two men who claimed he absurd them when they were kids.

The broadcaster is being sued by the late singer’s estate who say the broadcaster “breached its agreement not to disparage Michael Jackson.”

The complaint filed at the Los Angeles Superior Court says:

“The Jackson Estate will seek all damages proximately caused by HBO’s reprehensible disparagement of Michael Jackson, which could exceed $100 million should HBO succeed in the damage it is intending to cause to the legacy of Michael Jackson”.

“HBO breached its agreement not to disparage Michael Jackson by producing and selling to the public a one-sided marathon of unvetted propaganda to shamelessly exploit an innocent man no longer here to defend himself.”

However, HBO insists on going ahead to broadcast the documentary.

“Despite the desperate lengths taken to undermine the film, our plans remain unchanged,” said the network in response to the filed complaint. “HBO will move forward with the airing of Leaving Neverland , the two-part documentary, on March 3 and 4 . This will allow everyone the opportunity to assess the film and the claims in it for themselves.”

R. Kelly’s Attorney demands for copies of his sex tape as RnB star appears in court Friday

Published

R.Kelly and his legal team on Friday during his pretrial hearing demanded to get their hands and eyes on the alleged sex tapes that prompted the 10 counts of sexual abuse.

Kelly’s attorney, Steven Greenberg, tells TMZ there’s no guarantee what they will get right off the bat, could be police reports, case material from Kelly’s 2008 trial but, obviously, the items they’re most anxious to see are the 2 tapes Michael Avenatti turned over to Cook County prosecutors.

Greenberg says he hasn’t seen the tapes,  which Avenatti claims show Kelly engaged in various sex acts with a 14-year-old girl, so he can’t really begin to mount a defense strategy. Once he does get them, a couple different things could happen.

Kelly also asked the judge to let him travel to Dubai for work. Recall he had to surrender his passport when he got arrested.

However, the judge did not rule on whether Kelly’s team will get copies just yet. Greenberg added the sex tapes should be protected from public viewing.
