Michael Jackson‘s estate is slamming a new documentary making allegations of sexual abuse by the late singer … by calling out the doc’s producers for what it says is a transparent try to take advantage of Michael when it premieres at Sundance.
MJ’s property tells TMZ … “This is yet another lurid production in an outrageous and pathetic attempt to exploit and cash in on Michael Jackson.”
The doc, titled “Leaving Neverland,” is about to premiere on the 2019 Sundance Film Festival, and it reportedly accuses Michael of sexually abusing two younger boys.
The King of Pop’s property additionally says the “so-called documentary is just another rehash of dated and discredited allegations. It’s baffling why any credible filmmaker would involve himself with this project.”
It’s unclear which of MJ’s accusers are the main focus of the doc … however his property apparently believes it’s Wade Robson and James Safechuck, as a result of the property says “both testified under oath that Michael never did anything inappropriate toward them.”
