BBC Radio 2 has apparently quietly dropped Michael Jackson‘s song catalog from airing on the station ahead of the premiere of the two-part documentary Leaving Neverland, which starts airing on HBO tonight and on Channel 4 in the UK on Wednesday. Leaving Neverland, in case you don’t already know, shows the sad and fucked up account of the abuse that MJ allegedly afflicted upon James Safechuck and Wade Robson when they were children. That documentary has caused BBC radio to ban all things recorded by the singularly sparkling gloved one.
Is it disturbing because it’s FOUR HOURS LONG? Are they sure the people who looked disturbed were actually just looking pained from holding in urine for FOUR HOURS so they didn’t leave and miss anything? Leaving Neverland is an upcoming HBO documentary about the multiple sexual abuse charges that were leveled against Michael Jackson. It had its premiere at Sundance yesterday, and HuffPo reports that the attendees were shook during and after the viewing and not in the “Trinity the Tuck’s gown had me shook, gurl” way.
Jermaine Jackson smiles today, because he’s not living in fear that a lawsuit settlement will cut into his precious monthly spray-on hair stipend.
In 2013, choreographer Wade Robson filed a lawsuit against Michael Jackson’s estate alleging that MJ had molested him as a child at Neverland Ranch for nearly a decade. In 2015, a court rejected his claim against the estate itself, so he was allowed to sue two companies controlled by the estate, MJJ Productions and MJJ Ventures. Four years later, and that lawsuit is done. The Hollywood Reporter says that a judge ruled on Tuesday that the companies controlled by the Michael Jackson Estate aren’t liable for Wade’s alleged childhood sexual abuse.
Wade Robson Claims That Michael Jackson And His Minions Ran The Most Sophisticated Child Sexual Abuse Operation In The World
Choreographer and So You Think You Can Dance guest judge Wade Robson threw a lawsuit at MJJ Productions in 2013, claiming that Michael Jackson sexually abused him from the age of 7 to the age of 14. One judge threw out the case in 2015, because according to them, 33-year-old Wade Robson waited way too long to file it. (Yes, we are living in a world where claims of sexual abuse have an expiration date on them.) But the case is back on. The brain-melting disturbing details of the lawsuit were sealed up back then, but recently his new lawyer Vince Finaldi added a new complaint and The Hollywood Reporter published it. The new complaint claims that two of Michael Jackson’s companies acted as fronts for finding new victims.
