6. In his lawsuit, Safechuck claims he only realised he was abused
after seeing Robson had filed a multi-million dollar lawsuit against the Michael Jackson Estate. However, in the documentary, Safechuck indicates that he made his mother aware of these allegations as
early as 2005 and his mother states that she danced when she heard that Michael Jackson passed away in 2009.
7. Safechuck hired the same attorneys as Robson and filed copycat claims against the Michael Jackson Estate.
8. Robson and Safechuck are claiming hundreds of millions of dollars in their lawsuits and, as the Michael Jackson Estate pointed out, therefore have hundreds of millions of reasons to lie.
9. Robson has been caught lying repeatedly during these lawsuits and has
concealed evidence not only from the court, but even from his own lawyers. The judge has even found that "no rational fact-finder could possibly believe Robson’s sworn statement."
10. Safechuck has also lied during his lawsuit. He provided dates when the abuse allegedly occurred but these were factually proven false in court. For example, Michael Jackson
was not with Safechuck on some of the dates given.
11. So far four different lawsuits have failed but they continue to pursue their claims and are appealing the dismissal of their lawsuits.
12. Dan Reed, director of 'Leaving Neverland', has admitted several times that he chose not to interview anyone who could have provided a different take on these stories. He did not want anyone to be able to discredit the story he wanted to tell. He also did not do
any investigation to determine the veracity of the claims made by Robson and Safechuck nor does he provide
any evidence whatsoever other than the word of two admitted perjurers. It is clear that the intention of this film is to present Michael Jackson as a paedophile without reference to any of the mountains of exculpatory evidence, all of which the Michael Jackson Estate has said it would have been happy to share.
13. In the “documentary”, Robson suggests that Michael Jackson abused another of his friends, Brett Barnes. Barnes was never provided with an opportunity to participate in this documentary or to comment on the claims made about him. He
vehemently denies that he was ever abused by Michael Jackson and to this day maintains that Michael Jackson was one of the best friends he ever had. Brett Barnes’s attorneys have threatened to
sue HBO unless they remove all references to Brett Barnes from this documentary.
14. Michael Jackson was investigated not only by the police and child protection agencies but was also secretly investigated by the FBI over a period of 10 years. The publicly available FBI report concluded that there was absolutely no evidence of any wrongdoing on Michael Jackson’s part. Read the FBI report here.
