New documentary accuses Michael Jackson of sexual abuse

National/World

A new documentary set to premiere later this year accuses pop legend Michael Jackson of sexually abusing two boys.

The film is called “Leaving Neverland”, and will premiere at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.

According to its synopsis, Jackson had long-running relations with two boys, ages seven and 10, and their families.

It says the two men, now in their 30s, are sharing their stories and how they came to terms with the alleged abuse.

However, a spokesperson for Jackson’s estate says the movie is nothing more than an “outrageous and pathetic attempt” to exploit and make money off Jackson.
