"Leaving Neverland": Michael Jackson estate releases concerts while HBO documentary airs

Simon Mayo joins new national classical station Scala Radio

The controversial Michael Jackson miniseries is here, so find out how to watch Leaving Neverland online or live this weekend, as HBO airs the documentary everyone's been talking about.

Safechuck was nine years old when he worked with Jackson on a Pepsi commercial, prompting trips around the world with Jackson.

The men describe their time at Jackson's Neverland Ranch, telling how he gave them alcohol, showed them pornography and even purchased a wedding ring for the underage Safechuck.

Immerse yourself in Michael Jackson.

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

"But the weirdest thing about Michael Jackson which, I think, encouraged my suspicions about him as a human being was when he talked about charity and children he had this very soft and high pitched voice".

Taj Jackson, the singer's nephew, turned his focus on the two accusers in defence of his uncle, claiming they did not have any credibility.

Safechuck said he was forced to run drills on how not to get caught.

Both Safechuck and Robson claim the "Man in the Mirror" singer befriended them when they were children, and that their relationships quickly turned sexual.

Safechuck said that his mother nearly caught the alleged abuse at the theater once. That was a bit unsafe.

When the highly-anticipated doc finally premiered, many fans on Twitter stepped in to defend Jackson. Safechuck said Jackson reassured his mother that he had locked the door by accident. Robson said after a few days there, the family agreed to leave their son alone with Jackson, which is when the alleged abuse began. He'd come over and we'd spend the day shopping or hang out, or he'd come over and he'd spend the night. I would call him apple head sometimes.

"I loved Michael and all the times that I testified and many, many times that I gushed over him publicly in interviews or whatever it may be, um, that was from a real place, you know", he told Oprah.

With the #MeToo movement in full swing, it was only a matter of time that Michael Jackson would be put back in the crosshairs.

In the documentary Robson recounted his experience to the camera, saying: "I was seven-years-old".

We love Hollywood, we just have a amusing way of showing it. "If anyone were to ever find out our lives and career would be over". And then he started calling me Little One. He helped me tremendously. "Anything that Michael did was right to me, for so many years". The pair filed lawsuits against Jackson in 2013 and 2014, but each was thrown out for being too long after the original alleged incidents. The judge in the case ruled that Jackson's estate could not be held responsible for Jackson's actions. "I believed that I was a consenting participant in the sexual acts". Both parts are currently available for streaming on HBO Now and HBO Go.
