.Four members of Michael Jackson’s family have given an interview to defend the late pop star ahead of a controversial new documentary.
Speaking about Leaving Neverland on CBS, brothers Tito, Marlon and Jackie and nephew Taj Jackson rejected the film’s claims that he abused children.
Taj said his uncle’s behaviour seemed odd to some, but was “very innocent”,asserting that late Jackson’s naivety was his downfall.”
Marlon said there was “not one piece of evidence” to back up the allegations.
In the HBO and Channel 4 documentary, James Safechuck and Wade Robson claim they were abused by the singer as children.
Leaving Neverland director Dan Reed appeared on the CBS show on Tuesday to defend his film. The broadcaster will air an interview with Robson and Safechuck on Thursday.
