Leaving Neverland is an HBO documentary that focuses upon the late king of pop, Michael Jackson.
After the premiere, viewers are in shock by the detailed, graphic allegations that survivors describe of Jackson's behavior towards them as minors.
Beginning at almost unbelievably young ages, they say that he groomed them not only to participate in sex, but to defend him.
Which is why both of them took so long before they came forward with their own stories.
The Jackson family is outraged and are pulling out all of the stops to slam this film and defend the late legend.
But if you see the bombshells that the documentary dropped, you may wonder if anyone wlll look at Jackson the same way again.
1. Leaving Neverland premiered
The documentary premiered on Sunday night, and is receiving mixed reactions as Michael Jackson’s family and most diehard defenders square off against his accusers and those who believe the chilling things that they had to say.
2. First of all, it started early
Wade Robson is now 36 years old, and was only seven years old when he met Michael Jackson backstage at a concert. Robson says that Jackson convinced his family to let him stay over at the Neverland Ranch while they went off to see the Grand Canyon.
3. That sleepover was the first of many
Robson says that Michael Jackson performed oral sex on him that night. In the documentary, Robson says: “He said ‘This is how we show our love.'”
4. Jackson allegedly mentioned God
According to Robson, who had only met him backstage after winning a dancing contest at a mall, he told him that “You and I were brought together by God. We were meant to be together. This is how we show love.”
5. It was the same with James
James Safechuck is now 42, but met Jackson in 1986 while filming with him in a Pepsi commercial. He says that Jackson took the entire Safechuck family with him on tour.
6. But things allegedly became sexual
Safechuck recalls how Jackson allegedly introduced him to masturbation when he was only 10 years old, and says that it escalated into graphically sexual sleepovers from there.
