LEAVING NEVERLAND Michael Jackson accuser Wade Robson “had to ask his mother to remind him what happened at Neverland” during a previous court case where he admitted he “did not know” whether some of his memories were entirely his or the result of reminders from others.
The world has been horrified by the allegations made by Robson and James Safechuck in the controversial HBO documentary. One of the greatest criticisms levelled at Dan Reed’s film is the lack of any witnesses for the defence and the apparently calculated omission of facts which could harm the reputations of the two men. Jackson’s family and estate have said the film is financially motivated, something denied by Reed. Yet, Robson filed a failed $1.5billion lawsuit in 2013, during which he had to disclose he had needed to ask his mother over twenty times to remind him about specific interactions with Jackson.
