Family And Close Friends Defend Michael Jackson in New Documentary ‘Investigating Neverland’

With tons of sexual abuse allegations made by Wade Robson and James Safechuck against Michael Jackson in HBO’s Leaving Neverland documentary, the King of Pop’s family has decided to speak out.

In a new film titled Investigating Neverland, journalist Liam McEwan interviews several of MJ’s relatives and inner circle, who defended Jackson against numerous claims.

MJ’s niece, Brandi Jackson, details how she originally met Wade Robson, when she was about nine years old in 1991, how they became best friends and dated for nearly a decade.

“He has always been a bit of an opportunist. He knows how to position himself in different situations that will benefit him in a financial way. Once other jobs weren’t coming through, this was his next outlet,” Brandi continued. Her relationship with Robson was left out of Leaving Neverland. “It would discredit the things he’s trying to claim. I find it fascinating that he thinks he’s able to erase 10 years of life.”

If presented with the opportunity to confront Robson, the 37-year-old niece of MJ says, “I would tell him to stop lying. I’m not curious as to why he’s doing it, he needs to stop. I don’t care what his reasoning is, as far as trying to be relevant, desperate for money. These lies need to stop. It’s not okay. My uncle took care of him and did very well by his family.”

Jackson’s longtime technical director, Brad Sundberg, also says he was never led to believe any of the abuse claims went on in his presence at the studio.
