La Toya Jackson attends Michael Jackson tribute show following fallout from Leaving Neverland

The Jackson family are under pressure at the moment after the release of the shocking documentary, which focuses on two men who claim they were sexually abused by the Bad hitmaker as children.

While Michael's daughter Paris has been pictured arguing with her boyfriend in New Orleans as tension rises, the late singer's sister La Toya headed to Mexico for a tribute show in his honour.

The 62-year-old looked like she didn't have a care in the world as she posed on the red carpet alongside Jacko impersonators in full costume.

La Toya opted for an all-black ensemble with a studded jacket and thigh high boots for the show, Forever: The Best Show About The King of Pop, which was held at Mexico City's Centro Cultural Teatro.

The star gave a smile and a wave to fans as she headed into the venue, in her first outing since archive footage resurfaced of her saying her famous brother was a paedophile.

In chilling interview footage from 1993, La Toya claimed she had seen cheques paid out to boys for "very, very large sums" to keep them quiet.

In the freshly unearthed video from 1993, the singer was speaking at a time when she was estranged from the Jackson family.

She said: "I must tell you that this is very difficult for me.

"Michael is my brother, I love him a great deal but I cannot, and will not, be a silent collaborator of his crimes against small, innocent children.

"If I remain silent then it means I fuel the guilt and humiliation these children are feeling and I think it's very wrong."

La Toya made the comments after the father of 13-year-old Jordy Chandler accused Jackson of molesting his son.

She said she was the victim of sexual abuse herself and believed the alleged victims would be emotionally "scarred" by what they went through.

Her comments have been unearthed in the same week that the documentary Leaving Neverland aired.

Accusers Wade Robson and James Safechuck say they suffered abuse in Jacko's enormous California mansion he called Neverland.
