    Channel 4 quoted again....

    ‘Leaving Neverland’ sequel snared in legal war with Michael Jackson estate'

    The controversy is just beginning for the men behind “Leaving Neverland.”

    Deadline has reported that director Dan Reed is currently filming in a Los Angeles Superior Court as Wade Robson and James Safechuck, the two men who alleged assault at Michael Jackson’s Neverland Ranch some 30 years ago, remain embroiled in lawsuits with the King of Pop’s legacy companies, including MJJ Productions and MJJ Ventures, who deny the accusations on the late entertainer’s behalf.

    Reed’s plans to shoot a sequel to the explosive Emmy-winning HBO documentary have been challenged as a result of the MJJ brands seeking to entangle the director in court proceedings after serving subpoenas to the documentarian and his production company, Amos Pictures, on September 21.

    Jackson’s attorneys are also seeking a ban on filming in the courtroom.

    Reed’s counter motion to remove the subpoenas came last week, making clear that the LA court had little jurisdiction over the UK-based production company, while also pointing out that Robson and Safechuck have not received payment from Amos Pictures, despite the Jackson companies claims to the contrary.

    “The follow-up documentary for which I am currently filming in these cases is about current events taking place partly in public view and will be an unfolding narrative with multiple points of view,” wrote Reed in his 79-page motion, adding that he had asked MJJ Productions and MJJ Ventures counsel Howard Weitzman to appear in the second documentary.

    “I have resolved that neither myself or anyone in my offices will participate in the documentary we all discussed for several reasons. Among them is the fact that you are already clearly on the record saying that you believe both accusers’ stories without hesitation,” Weitzman responded in an email attached to Reed’s motion.

    Louisa Compton, head of news and current affairs at Channel 4, contributed a statement in support of the sequel, which is due to debut on her UK-based network.

    “Understandably, the MJJ companies are not happy with ‘Leaving Neverland’ or the making of the follow-up documentary,” she said. “It is easy to see why they do not want the subject matter of these films to be reported to the public. However, as much as they may dislike the messages that are being conveyed by these documentaries, we strenuously oppose their efforts to ‘shoot the messenger.’ ”


    She continued on to say that the MJJ companies’ claims to the journalist’s unpublished materials are meritless “given the strong legal protections that exist to protect freedom of expression.”

    “The motives of the MJJ companies are further revealed by their attempt to ban Reed from filming in the courtroom and thereby prohibit him from getting footage to report on the proceedings,” she said, suggesting that Jackson’s legacy should have nothing to hide if their claims are true.

    A hearing regarding Reed’s subpoena is scheduled for April 9, 2021.

    Safechuck is now gearing up for an appeal of his case against MJJ companies over his alleged assault, which was dismissed on Tuesday by LA County Superior Court Judge Mark A. Young. Robson’s case is scheduled to go on trial June 14, 2021.

    Meanwhile, HBO is fighting its own dispute with the Jackson estate after they alleged the network had breached a non-disparagement clause found in a 1992 contract for HBO’s concert special on Jackson’s “Dangerous” tour.

    Yes that's right. Just a date set ages ago.. sh1tchuck was thrown out based on the companies not having a duty of care to him as they couldnt control mj. This is the exact same for robson regardless of whether he worked for the companies or not. So theres only one way robsons case is going aswell

    Rodney Jerkins Says Michael Jackson Accusers From ‘Leaving Neverland’ Should ‘Be Ashamed of Themselves’ for Suing Jackson’s Estate

    Michael Jackson’s famous moonwalk helped to solidify him as one of the greatest entertainers of all time, but his astounding career was not without pitfalls. For decades, boys and men have come forward accusing Jackson of sexual abuse.

    The documentary Leaving Neverland details two alleged victims’ accounts of Jackson’s abuse. Producer Rodney Jerkins says the men should be ashamed for suing Jackson’s estate.

    A recap of allegations in ‘Leaving Neverland’

    Leaving Neverland focuses on two men, Wade Robson and James Safechuck, who allege they were sexually abused as children for multiple years by Jackson. Throughout the film, the men give accounts of what they say happened and how the alleged abuse impacts their adulthood.

    The film premiered in two parts on HBO in the spring of 2019. It was well-received by critics, winning the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Special the same year.

    The film however received backlash from Jackson’s fans, with many calling the men’s stories false and questioning their validity based on their previous testimony in denial of any abuse at the hands of Jackson.

    Jackson’s family also blasted the film. Per Rolling Stone, they alleged the men are money hungry. Jackson’s nephew Taj Jackson told the publication:

    “We live in a world where currency is popularity — through followers, through social media — the more popular they are, the more money you’re gonna make. That’s just a fact. And it’s not a coincidence that both Wade and James have appeals going right now against the estate for hundreds of millions of dollars.”

    -Taj Jackson, Rolling Stone Magazine

    The Jackson estate sued HBO for breach of contract, citing a clause in a 1992 contract between Jackson and HBO and seeking $100 million from the network. The suit is still ongoing.

    Rodney Jerkins slams ‘Leaving Neverland’ accusers

    Jerkins produced many of Jackson’s records, including Jackson asking him to produce his final album Invincible. In a new interview with Vlad TV, Jerkins gushes about his time with Jackson and bashes Jackson’s alleged victims.

    “I think allegations are merely allegations,” Jerkins begins. “I feel as though, like, for people to come out after someone dies should be ashamed of yourself. Even before all of that [Leaving Neverland], they’re just allegations — we don’t know [what happened].

    Jerkins says he spent much time with Jackson producing his music and maintains he never saw Jackson participating in any inappropriate behavior with children. He also states that he never saw any young boys around Jackson while they were working together, outside of Jackson’s children.

    Furthermore, Jerkins says he believes the allegations against Jackson are an attempt to jeopardize Jackson’s accomplishment.

    “I really get upset when someone dies and you try to kill their legacy,” Jerkins says. “What was it that you weren’t strong enough to do it when he was alive and now that he’s under the ground [your plan is] ‘Well, let’s take him further down.’”

    The Jackson family vehemently denies all claims against the late pop star. Jackson was found not guilty during all trials related to sexual abuse of children, though he did reach settlements with some parties. Jackson also denied the allegations while he was alive.
