With bombshell allegations of sexual abuse 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 vehemently 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. The two would go on to become best friends and dated for nearly a decade. "Everything was fine until he was about 17 or 18, when I noticed his behavior changed. That's when he began to cheat," she explained. "As I would confront him about these things, he would say, 'No these aren't true.' Constantly lying. He denied [the infedelities]."
"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."
