The human embodiment of a cry for help, Aaron Carter, tested the waters a couple of months ago by teasing that he had a story to tell about Michael Jackson that might contradict his previous assertion that Michael was an innocent angel sent from heaven as a gift to the little boys and girls (ok, just the boys) of planet earth. Well I guess Aaron was holding onto to this explosive revelation until he had something new to promote. Aaron’s timed his big reveal to coincide with the announcement of his appearance on Marriage Boot Camp. And even though it was pretty much a nothing burger of a revelation (big surprise), it didn’t go over so well with MJ’s fans. So he walked it back.
Not only has Leaving Neverland revealed a ton of alleged child abuse grossness the likes of which spanned hours of details, it’s also turned Corey Feldman’s world upside down and now it seems to be taking its toll on yet another involved in the orbit of Michael Jackson: the original boy wonder himself, Aaron Carter.
People is reporting that The Jackson Estate has decided to make a documentary of their own. Yes, the way that rappers these days will release a response to a diss track made against them, The Jackson Estate decided to release it’s own documentary in response to the Michael Jackson one which details alleged sexual abuse he committed against James Safechuck and Wade Robson when they were kids–Leaving Neverland. They’re also calling their response doc Neverland Firsthand, and not sure if you want to use the word “hand” when responding to child-touching allegations, but okay.
The Michael Jackson estate has already filed its own lawsuit against HBO for Leaving Neverland, and now Michael Jackson’s children are considering taking legal action. Page Six reports that Paris, Prince and Prince Michael Jackson II (Blanket) are thinking about suing the Wade Robson and James Safechuck, the two accusers whose stories make up Leaving Neverland.
The Leaving Neverland documentary has really kicked a wrench into the Michael Jackson machine. The (highly gross) allegations made against the deceased pop star have tarnished what was left of his reputation and has led to lawsuits, Drake dropping MJ samples from his set lists, radio stations dropping MJ songs, and Corey Feldman deciding not to defend him anymore.Well the steaming ball of crap rolling down shit mountain is still building, as The Simpsons showrunner, Al Jean, has some words about the Michael Jackson episode that recently got axed from their reruns, specifically that he thought Michael was using it to “groom” boys.
You won’t see Drake doing the moonwalk anytime soon. Mostly because he only knows how to do that one Kiki challenge dance, but also because he’s not fucking with Michael Jackson anymore. According to Complex, Drake’s just made a last minute change to his setlist for the kickoff of his tour in Manchester, England this past weekend. Drake won’t be performing “Don’t Matter to Me” off his Scorpion album, which featured “previously unheard vocals from Michael Jackson”. Oops, maybe he can ask the Jackson Estate if he can get his money back.
