What is Leaving Neverland about?

Leaving Neverland investigates the sexual abuse allegations made against the late King of Pop.

The documentary is told from the viewpoint of two of Jackson’s alleged victims Wade Robson and James Safechuck.

Robson and Safechuck allege they were assaulted as young boys whilst staying at Jackson’s Neverland ranch.

James Safechuck, now aged 40, first met Jackson aged 10, when he starred alongside him in a Pepsi advert.

In the documentary, Safechuck reveals Jackson started to abuse him from the age of 10 to 14.

Jackson himself and his estate have denied all allegations made against Jackson relating to sexual abuse.

Robson, now 36-years-old met Jackson as a young boy and appeared in three of Jackson’s music videos: Black and White, Heal the world and Jam.

In the documentary, Robson reveals the alleged abuse first began when he was seven-years-old and lasted until he was 14.


The official Channel 4 synopsis reads: “When allegations of abuse by Jackson involving young boys surfaced in 1993, many found it hard to believe that he could be guilty of such unspeakable acts.

“Leaving Neverland explores the experiences of two young boys, James Safechuck, at age 10, and Wade Robson, at age seven, who were both befriended by Jackson.

“They and their families were entranced by the singer’s fairy-tale existence as his career reached its peak.

“Through gut-wrenching interviews with Safechuck and Robson, now in their 30s, as well as their mothers, wives and siblings, Leaving Neverland crafts a portrait of sustained abuse, and explores the complicated feelings that led both men to confront their experiences after each had a young son of their own.

“Playing out against the backdrop of our collective experience, the film documents the value of breaking silence, even when it implicates a powerful and revered figure.”

Ahead of its premiere, the Jackson estate issued a statement which read: “This is yet another lurid production in an outrageous and pathetic attempt to exploit and cash in on Michael Jackson.

“This so-called ‘documentary’ is just another rehash of dated and discredited allegations. It’s baffling why any credible filmmaker would involve himself with this project.”
