Last night (March 4), HBO aired the second and final episode of Leaving Neverland, a documentary of two men – Wade Robson and Jimmy Safechuck – who break down their experiences of friendship with Michael Jackson and his alleged sexual abuse.
Following the special, HBO also ran a special called After Neverland, in which Oprah sat down with both Robson and Safechuck for a follow up conversation on the allegations.
MJ’s nephew Taj responds to the documentary and blasts Oprah for her decision to host the special to TMZ Live.
He claims Robson has changed his story multiple times, and that “the moment he did not get MJ One he all of a sudden started writing a book on the down low. Nobody wanted to by the book and that’s when he started on the allegations.”
MJ One is a Cirque Du Soleil show in Las Vegas, and it was rumored that Robson was upset at not being included in the show.
As for his his opinion on Oprah hosting the special, Tito Jackson’s son believes “[she] was never on our team.”
Oprah gave her reason for sitting down with the alleged victims during the early part of her special After Neverland.
“Here’s the reason why I am here: In 25 years of ‘The Oprah [Winfrey] Show, I taped 217 episodes on sexual abuse,” she said. “I tried and tried and tried to get the message across to people that sexual abuse was not just abuse, it was also sexual seduction. But, for me, this moment transcends Michael Jackson. It is much bigger than any one person.”
