Leaving Neverland: Just like R Kelly, documentary on how Michael Jackson sexually abused men to be released soon

As ‘Surviving R Kelly‘ is drawing lots of reactions, late king of pop Michael Jackson is set to have a documentary about his sexual molestation allegations released soon.

Sundance Film Festival announced the two-part documentary, “ Leaving Neverland ,” which will tell the story of two men who were allegedly sexually abused by the singer.

Sundance describes ”Leaving Neverland”:

“As one of the world’s most celebrated icons, Michael Jackson represents many things to many people—a pop star, a humanitarian, a beloved idol. When allegations of sexual abuse by Jackson involving young boys surfaced in 1993, many found it hard to believe that the King of Pop could be guilty of such unspeakable acts. In separate but parallel stories that echo one another, two boys were each befriended by Jackson, who invited them into his singular and wondrous world. Seduced by the singer’s fairy-tale existence and enthralled by their relationship with him, both boys’ families were blind to the manipulation and abuse that he would ultimately subject them to. Through gut-wrenching interviews with the now-adult men and their families, ‘Leaving Neverland’ crafts a portrait of sustained exploitation and deception, documenting the power of celebrity that allowed a revered figure to infiltrate the lives of starstruck children and their parents.”

However, Michael Jackson’s brother Jermaine Jackson has described the work as a defamation because Michael was cleared of all charges by a court. He issued a statement on his Facebook page:

“A documentary titled “Leaving Neverland” is planned to be shown to 40,000 people at the Sundance Film Festival. The producer of the film is Dan Reed. This film is based on the falsified claims of molestation by the hands of Michael Jackson. As Michael’s innocence was proven by a court of law and a 10 year FBI investigation, this is legally considered defamation of character. This mendacious documentary should NOT see the light of day.”

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

Published

on

 

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.
