Paris Jackson, the 20-year-old daughter of Michael Jackson, is making it clear she’s not interested in talking about “Leaving Neverland,” the bombshell documentary accusing her late father of sexually abusing two young boys.
“there’s nothing i can say that hasn’t already been said in regards to defense,” Jackson tweeted Thursday, in response to a fan who claimed “tabloids are mad” that she hasn’t said much about the documentary.
Jackson added that her cousin, Taj, “is doing a perfect job on his own. and i support him. but that’s not my role.”
She continued: “i’m just tryna get everyone to chill out and go with the flow, be mellow and think about the bigger picture. that’s me.”
The documentary, which aired March 3 and 4 on HBO, tells the story of Wade Robson, 36, and James Safechuck, 40, who allege that Michael Jackson began sexually abusing them at ages 7 and 10, respectively, when the singer was at the height of his fame.
The Jackson estate and many of his living family members have fought against the documentary from the initial news of its premiere, with the estate filing a $100 million lawsuit against HBO to fight back against its release.
Michael Jackson’s brothers, along with his nephew Taj, have led the Jackson family’s fight against the documentary. Marlon Jackson previously told USA TODAY he had “no interest in watching something that has no validity to it.”
Taj also touched on the claims Robinson made in the documentary: “It’s never been about justice for him. It’s always been about fame and money.”
