Looks like Michael Jackson’s daughter Paris Jackson is addressing HBO’s Leaving Neverland documentary after all…
The 20-year-old daughter of the late King of Pop took to Twitter to console a fan, who worried that the documentary had smeared Michael Jackson’s name and would “ruin” his legacy…
“Yeah they do that to everyone with a good heart and tries to make a difference but do you really think that it’s possible to tear his name down? Like do you truly believe they stand a chance? Relax and have peace,” she wrote on Twitter, in response to the troubled fan.
The Tweet came just hours after she broke her social media silence, to respond to a Gay Star News article which essentially hinted that all hopes of her having an acting career were crushed following the allegations in the documentary.
“I actually haven’t made any statements yet, especially regarding how it affects my work life,” she tweeted in response to the GSN article.
“You guys are reaching a bit. At least this wasn’t a disgusting and attacking article though.”
“Y’all take my life more seriously than I do. Calm yo tittaaaaysss,” she added.
“I know injustices are frustrating and it’s easy to get worked up. But reacting with a calm mind usually is more logical than acting out of rage and also…. it feels better to mellow out.”
The two-part HBO documentary focuses on Wade Robson and James Safechuck, as they go into detail about the alleged grooming and sexual assault they faced when they befriended Michael Jackson as children.
Interestingly, in 2005, Wade Robson testified saying that although he had indeed slept in Michael’s room as a child, he was never sexually abused by him. James Safechuck also denied that he was ever molested by the singer.
However, in 2013, both men came forward alleging that stress and trauma forced them to relive their past and admit they were sexually abused…
Leaving Neverland’s director Dan Reed said a sequel could very well happen if more alleged victims came forward to tell their stories.
Michael Jackson’s family have denied all of the allegations in the documentary, with Jackson 5 founding member Jackie Jackson calling them “devastating”.
