PICTURED: Michael Jackson
AN HOUR-long film has been released in support of Micheal Jackson, defending him against alleged child abuse allegations.
The documentary, entitled Chase The Truth, explores the accusations made by Wade Robson, 36, and James Safechuck, 41, against the Thriller hitmaker.
The duo, appeared in a two-part HBO docu-series Finding Neverland, where they accused the singer of abusing them when they joined him on tour as children.
Robson alleged he was sexually abused by Michael from the age of seven until 14, while Safechuck claimed he was a victim from the age of 10 until he hit puberty.
The director of the series, Dan Reed, defended the docu-series and claimed that it shows the other side to what he called Michael’s “Peter Pan-ish image”.
However, Chase The Truth features interviews with Jackson’s biographer Mike Smallcombe, former bodyguard Matt Fiddes and actor Mark Lester, and has been released on Amazon Prime, YouTube and other streaming services in defence of the late star.
On Instagram, Fiddes wrote: “So the ‘Factual’ documentary about the “real” #Michael Jackson is being released around the world right now! Thank you so much for your feedback and kind words!
“So glad it’s exceeded your expectations and I expect Wade and James are hiding behind a rock along with Dan Reed somewhere with embarrassment right now!”
He added: “I would love to invite Wade, James and Dan Reed to come and challenge us on live UK TV about the man we knew, our friend @michaeljackson and let’s have @tajjackson with is too and @brandijackson82 and see how they got on! Maybe @piersmorgan too! I may even throw in some free martial arts lessons for Wade, James and Dan Reed if you come over to the UK but I doubt you will face us as we know the truth!”
Fiddes said that Jackson is “not even here to defend himself” and wrote that they “should be ashamed.”
The Jackson estate has denied all allegations made against the singer.
