Michael Jackson’s Nephew Producing A Docuseries To Disprove Child Sex Claims Made In ‘Leaving Neverland’!

Michael Jackson’s nephew will not sit idly by while documentarians attempt to slander the late superstar a la Surviving R. Kelly

Taj Jackson revealed on Twitter that he’s crowdfunding a docuseries aimed at rebutting the child sex claims made in Leaving Neverland, the four-hour documentary that premiered at Sundance Film Festival Friday morning.

The film, which tells the story of two men who claim they were groomed and sexually abused by the King of Pop in the ‘90s, has already infuriated fans and the late superstar’s family. MJ’s estate blasted the doc as an “outrageous and pathetic attempt to exploit and cash in on” when Sundance added it to its lineup earlier this month.

Now, Taj, son of Tito, is taking matters into his own hands… or, more accurately, the hands of those who will help finance his journey to “tell the true side” of the story. He tweeted:

According to the project’s GoFundMe page, Taj plans on examining the “false allegations” made in Leaving Neverland, as well as other “salacious myths,” and “dissecting how and why the media’s narrative diverged from the truth.” He’s touting this docuseries as “the definitive historic record of the most discussed aspects of Michael Jackson’s private life.”

So far, the campaign has raised just over $25,000 of its $777,000 goal. Taj said he’s seeking crowdfunding instead of investors because investors might manipulate the story.
