Part One of HBO's Michael Jackson Doc 'Leaving Neverland' Has Twitter Divided

The first instalment of the two-part film Leaving Neverland aired on HBO in the USA last night, after premiering at the Sundance Film Festival.

Jackson's estate, which has sued HBO and slammed the documentary as "another rehash of dated and discredited allegations", had other plans Sunday, dropping the concert footage on YouTube at the same time as the premiere.

Reports suggest Robson was attached to the show but took another job and when that didn't work out, he tried to get his old post back, telling Bouchard: "You will not have to worry about my commitment level again". "I'm your friend, Love Doo Doo Ho". Vanity Fair has a piece called "10 Undeniable Facts About the Michael Jackson Sexual-Abuse Allegations", and it barely scratches the surface.

In a response tweet, user @hatergene argued that the response was "perfectly on brand" for Jackson's estate. But "oh, gee, it just kinda sounds like a bummer" is not one of them. Robson alleges that Jackson made him perform oral sex when he was as young as seven years old, and Safechuck claims that he and the pop star had sex in various locations around Neverland, including the movie theater and the train station. Its four-hour length would make it grueling enough, and its depiction of the sexual abuse of children hardly sounds like feel-good TV.

Piers then chimed in with his own story about Jackson, in which he announced: "I interviewed him once over the telephone".

Both Robson and James Safechuck, the other accused featured in the film, have previously publicly accused Jackson of sexual abuse with the former saying he didn't realise he had been abused until reconsidering the events during a therapy session in 2012. Michael asked: 'Do you and the family want to come to Neverland?'

Australians will get a chance to see Leaving Neverland for themselves on Friday.

"And when I changed the subject to business his voice dropped several octaves and became a completely different person to talk to". Bringing the world together.

Robson and Safechuck also sat down with King in an interview that aired last Thursday and stood by their allegations.

Even though he was plagued by accusations of child abuse from the early 1990s until his death, fans had found a way to separate the music from the man and enjoy the genius that was Michael Jackson.

"Michael's training of me to testify began the first night that he started abusing me", Robson alleged.
