Paris Jackson Hasn’t Watched ‘Leaving Neverland,’ Sides With Her Family
According to People magazine, Paris Jackson is standing by her late father Michael Jackson amidst controversy that he sexually abused children, as documented in HBO’s Leaving Neverland.
The two-part, four-hour-long documentary follows the story of Wade Robson and James Safechuck, who first met the singer as young children and claim the singer sexually molested both of them at separate times.
A source close to Paris says the 20-year-old model “hasn’t seen” the explosive documentary.
In a tweet this week, Paris responded to reports that she’s worried the explosive film will impact her career: “I actually haven’t made any statements yet, especially regarding how it affects my work life. You guys are reaching a bit. At least this wasn’t a disgusting and attacking article though.”
Interestingly enough, in a 2017 Rolling Stone interview, she addressed the abuse allegations, saying her “dad would cry to me at night.”
“Picture your parent crying to you about the world hating him for something he didn’t do,” she told the magazine. “And for me, he was the only thing that mattered. To see my entire world in pain, I started to hate the world because of what they were doing to him. I’m like, ‘How can people be so mean?’”
