Paris Jackson has broken her silence on the sex abuse allegations made against her father Michael Jackson aired in Channel 4’s controversial documentary Leaving Neverland.
The late pop king Michael, who died in 2009, has always denied allegations against him and in June 2005 was acquitted of child molestation.His daughter had previously kept tight lipped about the new allegations from accusers Wade Robson, 36, and James Safechuck, 40, who spoke out in Dan Reed’s film, of which part one aired on Wednesday.
The 20-year-old model and aspiring actress reacted to a Gay Star News article on social media which ran the headline: “Paris Jackson believes her father, Michael, is innocent of sex abuse claims”.
Paris took to Twitter to address reports by Gay Star News that she had made an ‘official statement’ saying she believed her father is ‘innocent of sex abuse claims’.”I actually haven’t made any statements yet, especially regarding how it affects my work life,” Paris tweeted.
In response to another fan on Twitter who accused the media of publishing “lies and garbage stories”, Paris replied: “If everyone reacted this way towards articles, they’d stop making lies and start writing actual news.”
She then continued with a second tweet: “You guys are reaching a bit. At least this wasn’t a disgusting and attacking article though.”
