I wonder if TMez would go on Joe Rogan.
If he gets to know all the ins and outs of the inconsistencies and stuff.

Hey Moonwalkers! Long time fan here. New to being official on the forum. I have a new podcast that I do with two of my buddies from college. The three of us record remotely in three different cities. In our latest episode I speak on Leaving Neverland and go back to explain MJ’s past. I have researched a lot but am nowhere near as well versed as some of you. But I think my friends learned a lot. Check it out if you have time. This is in two parts. Part 1 MJ topics start maybe about 25 to 30 minutes.

DO NOT BELIEVE THE LIES
My family met Michael Jackson at Sun City resort in 1997 and we remained friends with him up until his very tragic and untimely death. My sons were 12 and 10 years old at the time. During those years Michael spent many times at our house and we went to Neverland and in all those years I can honestly say that Michael never ever spent time alone with my two sons.
Everything that Grace Rwaramba has said is absolutely true. There were always so many people at Neverland that it would have been absolutely impossible for Michael to have "lured" boys to his room without anyone noticing it. Every room in the main house was always open to the guests and we never saw Michael's bedroom door closed. Michael had nothing to hide. He was open and transparent.
My husband and I were included in every arrangement. There was never even a hint of a suggestion of him wanting to spend time alone with my sons. They never slept in his bedroom at Neverland. We all slept in the guest cottages. As responsible parents had he suggested anything that we felt uncomfortable with we would have packed our bags and gone home immediately.
Michael never moved on to "younger boys" as claimed by Wade Robson. If he did why are they not making the same disgusting allegations? Why didn't the director speak to them? He knows they exist and where to find them. Michael was friends with families and their children from all over the world and everyone knows that including the director!
The reason the director did not speak to them is because they will all tell the truth which is Michael is 100% innocent of every allegation levelled against him so instead he chose two perjurers desperate for money in order to make this so-called documentary.
I believe that the reason Michael did not want to remain friends with Wade Robson or James Safechuck anymore is probably because they asked him for money at some stage and he did not give in to their requests so hence they took their revenge after he died. All Michael ever wanted to do was to help children which he did. To label him a paedophile is just beyond belief. He was truly the kindest and most honest person I have ever met.
What Wade Robson testified about Michael in the court trial when he said Michael never did anything inappropriate to him is the truth and nothing but the truth. Wade Robson's bitterness from not getting funding from the estate for a project he wanted to do turned him into a compulsive liar for the sake of money.
He is a perjurer and now people believe his lies. I shudder to think what this documentary has done to Prince, Paris and Blanket.Now they have to live with the lies about their father. What kind of world are we living in where people are prepared to destroy innocent children for fame and fortune?
My question is why did these two liars wait until Michael died to make false accusations against him? They had plenty of time to lay a charge against him before he died. My family and I will fight for Michael's innocence in every way we can until the day we die because his innocence is worth fighting for.
I see that these two perjurers claimed that they reason they did this documentary was so that this does not happen to other boys in the future. What nonsense! In my opinion all they have done is open up a door for anyone to accuse a celebrity of molesting them in order to get money out of them.
Nowadays when you admit to being molested, whether it is true or not, you become a hero to the public. I am quite sure that in the near future there will be many allegations coming out of boys being molested by celebrities as it is a very easy way to make a quick buck and get a moment of fame. My family could have done the same for fame and fortune but we are honest people.
Michael taught me many things but one of the most important things he taught me is don't believe what you read in the tabloids until you see it for yourself and I know the absolute truth and I saw it for myself that Michael Jackson was not a paedophile!
We miss Michael every single day of our lives and are thankful and grateful for the times that we spent with him. We had the best times of our lives with Michael. We are all devastated by the disgusting lies in this documentary as we know the truth.
What I found really disturbing in the documentary is the two mothers who really didn't seem to be angry about what their sons allege Michael did to them. If my sons had been molested I would have no fond memories of the molester at all no matter how famous, wealthy and kind he was to my family.
I would only have hate and resentment regardless of how kind and generous the molester was to my family and I certainly wouldn't keep any mementoes from him. I would want to see him rot in jail for the rest of his life and no amount of money in the world would make me back down if I knew for sure my sons had been molested, as per the first false allegation where money was taken by the father, and we all know how he ended up.
I would be fuming and angry and crying hysterically during the interview and have absolutely nothing nice to say about the molester yet these mothers spoke very fondly about Michael and certainly didn't seem upset in my view. Even more disturbing is that Wade Robson at the age of 22 did not realise he had been "molested." This so-called documentary is just downright disgusting and anyone who believes these lies is just plain stupid!



All these familys should go in contact with Taj!

I saw on Twitter that Reed is following Paris. Hopefully she will block him.

Appearently Dan Reed wants to do another doc about the 2005 trial but only if the Arvisos cooperate. I really hope that never happens. He has some nerve even following Paris on Twitter.

Gross. Why was he allowed air time?

Initially I gave Reed the benefit of the doubt, thinking he may have been duped but now I am fully convinced he is a weazle and at this point I consider him 100% complicit based on his continued defence of his work in spite of a ever growing mass of evidence to discredit. It is outrageous. Despite claiming he doesn't keep an eye on social media, his approach has clearly been to keep a very close eye on what the fans are saying ON SOCIAL MEDIA(!) in an attempt to debunk the fans' claims publicly as they appear. Often his rebuttals are partially or completely fictitious.

His claims that fans' objections are "non-factual" are clearly laughable, and any legitimate journalist keeping an eye on what we've been saying SHOULD have been able to expose his lies within seconds but that didn't happen.

The only time he was properly questioned he was clearly shaken and made a point of having a spat with Piers Morgan on Twitter.

Probably because of the stupid censorship that's in place on this website.

It is censorship of some words and specific spelling that seems to be happening since the site moved to https.
That being said, I don't know why "MJ Vibe" was censored in that specific link, as it's an innocuous term.

In any case, here's the update from the Estate in its entirety, copied from MJ Vibe.


The Estate of Michael Jackson:

We want to start by again thanking all of Michael’s fans and acknowledge and thank Michael’s nephew, Taj, his niece, Brandi, and his brothers, Jackie, Marlon and Tito, Grace Rwaramba, Aaron Carter, Brett Barnes, Stephanie Mills and all of the other individuals around the world who have spoken out on his behalf. We also want to acknowledge those in the media who have done their job as journalists by reviewing the facts, noting how they were ignored in Leaving Neverland because it didn’t fit into the filmmaker’s one-sided agenda of denigrating Michael’s legacy.

We also want to provide a brief update on our efforts, as well as share some thoughts with you from the past two weeks. We share your frustration and anger that a man who was found innocent in a court of law in life is being attacked, financially exploited and smeared by corporations and individuals who are only making claims now because he is no longer here to defend himself.

In addition to our public statements regarding our position on Leaving Neverland, our legal efforts continue. While it would not be prudent to publicly divulge our strategy and list our efforts, rest assured we are committed to holding HBO and Channel 4 accountable for their egregious, uncorroborated smear of Michael’s legacy. Many of you have asked why we are seeking open arbitration. The answer is simple: we believe the public deserves to know how Leaving Neverland really came about, why no counter opinion was ever sought, why so many facts were ignored and why individuals were smeared who should have at a minimum been contacted to get the other side of the story. It is outrageous that such a one-sided smear was ever allowed on the air without challenge. We all know that if Michael was still alive it would never have been aired.

We also have other non-legal initiatives that we will disclose at the appropriate time. What is important for us, and always has been, is that we continue to take the long view as we have over the last decade. That means not doing anything rash that would give HBO, Channel 4, the film’s director and, especially, the subjects of the film, what they most crave now. They want to engage in a way that focuses more attention on a film that has no doubt underperformed given that the media did everything in its power to sell this film to viewers. But given the enormous attention and free publicity the media gave this film, the numbers have clearly not matched the hype in the markets where it has aired, with many viewers opting to stop watching after the first part.

We recognize that the press often magnifies each affront related to this film. But from our view the actual impact of this documentary on the public and their behavior has not been as significant as the media want people to think. While some would like you to think otherwise, we can confirm that the consumption of Michael’s music has not declined and his streaming numbers have not decreased in the wake of this documentary. This tells us that in addition to those of us who know the truth about Michael, those who may not understand Michael’s eccentricities and the way he chose to live his life outside of society’s norms are still choosing to appreciate and enjoy the art he created. We have licensees worldwide who are proudly selling Michael Jackson merchandise. We have insight into a significant amount of data that the fans do not see and we are working 24/7 behind the scenes to synthesize all that information and act accordingly.

We are also seeing a sharp disconnect between the reception of the film by everyday viewers and the mainstream media. Despite being outright propaganda, many viewers see through the one-sidedness, the over-the-top salacious claims, the staged dialogue and other dramatizations. They see that what Leaving Neverland boils down to is a sales job aimed at convincing viewers Michael Jackson isn’t the man millions of people know and love, including the two subjects of the film and their families until they chose to sue for hundreds of millions of dollars. As people have had time to digest Leaving Neverland and review the facts, many are recognizing they can’t take it at face value. We are especially proud of Michael’s fans and those who continue to stand up for him by pointing out the numerous inconsistencies and flaws in the film. Numerous individuals who have studied every facet of these cases has poked numerous holes in the stories of the two subjects. Some critics and individuals are now courageously admitting publicly that, having studied the facts, their view of the film changed 180 degrees.

Michael Jackson cannot be silenced, and neither can his fans, whether it is those who proudly play his music in public squares to show their support, the coffee shop owner in New Zealand who played his songs all day long in protest of Leaving Neverland or those who put posters and signs around cities proclaiming his innocence. As Michael predicted 25 years ago, the truth will be his salvation.

So I watched the video by that music reviewer Anthony Fantano. Basically he keeps going back to the sharing of the bed, how it's not normal, how it was very wrong back then already, how it could also give children the wrong impression, even if everyone in the bed lies neatly on their own side. It's not good for the personal space of children etc. He made it clear how Michael had relationships with several boys and so on.

Not once did he say he thought he was guilty, he kinda keeps it like, anything could have happened. And he ends the segment with MJ during that interview while the trial was going on and again saying there's nothing wrong with it.

And why not ?
If he convinced people with his film !

That's why he needs to be stopped. We don't know what is going on behind the scenes but I sure hope one of them is suing the shit out of Reed. Not only is he using footage of Michael and also music, he also flat out deceives people with the Mark Geragos footage and just has these two losers lying through their teeth about MJ.

Has Reed been bringing this up again then about a new mockumentary? Or is this just what he said two weeks ago? Because in that case it's nothing new. Also, is Gavin allowed to even do that?

Even less people will buy into one about the Arvisos. It’s already been done and dusted in the public eye. People either believe the outcome of the trial or they don’t. I can’t see what he could put in a documentary to change that, it will once again ignore all the facts and just be 2 hours of testimony of alleged abuse.

Michael began working professionally since he was 5 years old. He and his brother's started out in strip clubs, because they worked the Chitlin Circuit. The Beatles also worked in strip clubs in Germany, but they were grown men. Michael sang about groupies and how he understood their allure and the money one would make and the lifestyle. This is why he enjoyed the company of kid's. The kid's had not gotten jaded by money yet. Michael related to the story book character Peter Pan, because Peter would forever remain innocent from the world of the adult's. Michael allowed sleep overs, because that's what kids enjoy. Call it eccentric, but in the world of Show Business, I don't blame Michael for taking the route he did!

This quote from MJ that sharing his bad his nothing wrong, is misinterpretated and often taken out of context.
When he said that he ment he gave the bed to the kid in his generousety when he/she wants to sleep in it and he sept on the floor.

What people not see or not consider is that Michael had a very permanent magnetic, magical, unique aura and caracter that people esspecially children to want stay with him 24 hours all 7 days a week.
And Michael who loved children the most and saw god in them, in his generousity could not say NO when a child ask him if he/she can stay with him in his biiiiiig room or sleep in his bed.

I belive him 100 percent when he said in 1995 that he never invided any child in his room or in his bed.
When they had sleepovers there then it was because the children wanted it on their own and MJ in his generousity allowed it, mostly the parents too.
