Late Michael Jackson is amidst controversy after the ‘Leaving Neverland’, a two-part docuseries that portrayed him as a child predator in the closed quarters of the Neverland estate. It sparked reactions all over Hollywood and beyond with BBC banning The King of Pop’s tracks from playing on their radio.
In the docuseries, Wade Robson, who had moved into Neverland from Australia with his mom, claimed that he was raped by Michael Jackson for years as a child. He detailed his heartbreak after learning that the singer had replaced him with new friends, Macaulay Culkin being one among them along with Corey Feldman.
Jackson began to spend an increasing amount of time with Macaulay Culkin around 1991 and 1992, much to the disappointment of Wade Robson, who was replaced by Culkin in the ‘Black or White’ music video despite Michael promising him the role.
Culkin has said that he was never sexually assaulted by Jackson to his knowledge, while Corey Feldman called the accusers liars on Twitter. Both Barnes and Culkin have stated that they were never molested or sexually assaulted by Jackson.
SO GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY WHICH HE CERTAINLY HAD W ME & OTHERS, BEING ALONE, W NO PARENTS AROUND, HOW DID HE CONTROL THOSE URGES SO WELL, WHILE SO BLATANTLY SEXUAL W THOSE 2 BOYS? IT DOESNT REALLY FIT THE PROFILE. BUT WHAT MOTIVE BESIDES $ DO THEY HAV? ABANDONMENT IS A STRONG 1!
