Wade is a liar. He never burned that jacket, he sold it for 1.8 million on auction recently.

This is not a factual or truthful documentary and those who believe it are failing to look for all the facts and everything equally. Looking at this with binocular vision doesn't make it true. This film is meant to disturb you so much that you won't do any further research!

As a suvivour of childhood sexual abuse, these people make me sick. They give every victim a bad name. Shame on them for re-victimising us again.

Not recommended.

wow, well done.. It's a documentary of two families and their experience while with/around Michael, a super-serial-preditor..
Make sure you watch the second part all the way through to the credits if you think these people are just doing it for the money.. [SPOILER]...
I believe them.. Michael exhibits every trait for someone with NPD including isolating the target from loved ones..
I cried in the second part...

Right until watching this documentary I was thinking that all of this bad stuff about M.J. was just bullcrap to create huge buzz, which results in many people making insance amounts of cash.

However now, after watching this, I am leaning more to believing this is actually truth.
But Still - Not fully convinced. I just have hard to believe one single guy telling a sad story. There is no way to tell if its really truth. There has been much bigger attempts to lie and ruin celebrities, and then cought to fake it.

i loved his music and videos as a young man growing up in the 80's. still do. i love all music in the 80's and that will NEVER change.
.
this doesn't surprise me though, not at all.....not these days.
but to keep the focus entirely on Michael Jackson seems a bit short sighted and pigeon holed.
like most powerful people in that position....*cough Harvey Weinstein cough*....they have a lot of "yes people" helping them. who helped move the parent's room further and further from them while on tour?. he could not have done this by himself.
.
i believe M.J. is a symptom of a bigger problem in the industry that covers all areas of entertainment
(yes, you can include the annoyingly wealthy and powerful world leaders in this mess).
.
Excellent Documentary!!.

I can't believe how many people think Michael Jackson is innocent. It's deluded, delusional--literally crazy--thinking.

Normal, grown men Do Not Share Their Bed With Multiple Different Little Boys Their Entire Lives. They don't have an alarm system when someone is approaching their room. They don't only have little boys as friends. They don't have multiple men accusing them of molestation.

They don't ask parents to keep their children.

He is a sick monster. Thank goodness he is dead and can no longer hurt any more children.

This documentary was paced just right. The victims gave the same details. There was lots of pictures and footage I have never seen.
I am guessing Michael Jackson was similarly abused as a child, he knew exactly how to groom the kids and appease the families. I always wanted this to be untrue. I always wanted to think there was child- like guy that built a Neverland. It is very clear that isn't the case

I see some odd victim-blaming going on in what are supposed to be reviews. Really nauseating.

These men want so badly to be apart of Michaels life, and in some evil way, this naming him as a peadophile keeps them connected to him. They have been telling the truth since a child that Michael never touched them and when you see the clip they are speaking truth. But now as grown men they can not handle not being without Michael, so they have to use this very evil thing to stay relevant in the life of Michael Jackson. When the wives trying to figure out what's wrong with their husbands, the men coming off to camera crew like it's because Michael has been sexing them since youth, but it's really because they miss Michael and they are depressed and hurt. They love him and that's what is bothering them. Not molestation. People don't let this docu-lie fool you.

the documentary was a waste of time it felt like they were cherry picking around things on MJ they couldn't even get straight to the point this went on for an hour funny thing is that their reminiscing of Michael Jackson outweighs the negativity it sounds like they're just repeating all the accusations what other people said about MJ yet another cash grab on the industry trying to make money off of Michael's name I even got articles on celebrity kids who've been with Michael saying that this documentary is bogus and that these guys were lying luckily he still got some loyal fans

I have been trying to understand why these boys accused Michael Jackson, and I suspected jealousy. Then they started talking about how jealous they were. They were obsessed with Michael, and that will cause you to do anything to hurt that person when you feel betrayed. What's one way to get a star? Allegations of Abuse. The boys got jealous and decided to hurt Michael.

Again tried to watch this, and I can see is that there is some merit that the people who originally went thru this ran out of money, or maybe there parents spent it for them,,,none the less the biggest question is why did Michael continue to have children around him. Other than it was some kind of addiction. Has any one watched some the showings of Michael's house and the big bay window over looking the swimming pool from his private bathroom!!!! Kind of freaky.

Question should of been ask after the first time, MJ was one sick person who used his money to hide behind, problem with cases like this, is the money side of it all, like what was said how could take money for the abuse of your kid, only pimps do that sort of thing and the other side if MJ was inocent then why settle out of court that is some thing the guilty will do.

Well, the other shoe has finally dropped. Someone actually came out and said OUT LOUD what EVERYONE KNEW ALL ALONG. It is a case of a "cash cow" becoming a "sacred cow" and the spell is FINALLY broken. MJ could do no wrong ... no, no NOT MICHAEL! OH YES HE DID. Listen closely to what this victim is saying. He is describing the CLASSIC GROOMING scenario. No rape, no violence ... just "I love you and we have to keep all this a secret"! You can track exactly how a CHILD is entrapped into the MJ perversion. His sister knew ... and spoke out about it. His mother knew and was disgusted by it. But as long as he was making a buck for everybody ... it was fine, OK, WONDERFUL! The world watched him mutilate himself for 25+ years and turned a blind eye on just how sick he was. The documentary is scary and disconcerting ... but it is way past time for the world to know. MJ was one sick puppy.

So after I watched this, which was really hard to watch, I was pretty appalled at Michael Jackson. Absolutely disgusted.

And then I heard the interview with Brandi Jackson, who dated Wade Robson, and niece of Michael Jackson. And then all of the sudden, this documentary stopped making sense. Especially since it left her out of the story. And how this documentary left out the fact that after Robson's supposed rapist died in 2009, how he, and his mom (featured in this doc) called the Jackson family trying to take custody of Michael's kids and remain close to the family. Yup, the very same family in the documentary who in the end were portrayed as ruined by Michael Jackson and Michael's victims.

Wade Robson, called Taj Jackson in 2009 and asked for his own whole entire Australian family to attend Jackson's Memorial. Wade Jackson then bragged on national television that he was going to be the dance choreographer for some memorial event, for his supposed rapist, but the Jackson family ended up choosing someone else in 2012. And then a year later, after Wade's family had been removed from the Jackson family circle, Wade and his family started these allegations of sexual abuse.

@Hiddenpalm These interviews ERADICATE any credibility of this so called documentary.

Speaking as a suvivour of childhood sexual abuse, Michael Jackson not only doesn't fit the profile of a peadofile, his "victims" don't either.

What I have found is that in recent years, it has become popular to scream rape or abuse to avoid responsibility AND to gain access to money.

Insurance companies advise wealthy clients to settle to avoid lengthier litigation and higher costs. THIS IS A FACT.

Anyone who feels otherwise is naive in this world of "sue them and get something" including more exposure and more paid, lucrative interviews, even if you're lying.

MJ was a man who never got a childhood and remained 9 years old, forever. He was the victim. People who were never abused have to realise only one thing; they do not understand. Only suvivours who have perspective do.

@lamusette So new information has come to light and it looks like the subjects of the documentary may be motivated by money. I still think the doc was boring as hell and I still think people should be so careful with their children, but I can't believe the information in the doc after hearing about a certain CA law and other witnesses who contradict most everything said by the subjects in the doc. It's important to look at everything before we erase someone from history (which is total bullsh*t anyway).

I started watching Part 1, did not even finish it..... my thoughts are "money talks"...first and foremost, as sick as this is. No one mentioned if "the room" was soundproof,which it very well could have been.. I do not blame the little boys, they were the innocents in this, the parents should be ashamed of themselves, I don't care how "start struck" they are, I cannot even fathom being that star struck, about anyone, I don't care who it is.....Also being an ER nurse, for some years, we are trained in this field (not as much as I'd like) but you learn from experience... I will never ever forget the time, a "victim" child of 4, was brought in with what appeared to be a UTI.. turned out it wasn't, and the stepdad was arrested , this pervert, actually cried saying he was innocent, DNA doesn't lie, I wanted to throat punch the piece of scum, point is , it happens way, way too much, and most of it it not reported.. than down the road a 20 year old commits suicide from all the past trauma, and the "self-loathing" they carry around. ...

I watched what it said was Part 1, but it made me so sick that I’m not sure I can watch the other half. You see these grown men speaking about someone who is very well known, and it can kind of make you forget that they were these little boys when what they’re describing was happening to them occurred. As soon as I let my brain put that into perspective, i start sobbing. They were star struck and so were their parents, but I still wouldn’t let my little boy sleep with a grown man no matter how famous or rich he was. I wouldn’t expect the man to want to sleep with my CHILD. But I do know that meeting your idol or really high-profile, famous people is a very odd experience, though. You know SO much about them and have seen them and heard them and it’s like they’ve already been in your home and your life in a way, and at that second that you are standing and speaking directly to them, you suddenly realize that they don’t know a THING about you. It’s so weirdly one-sided. Suddenly you’re both breathing the same air and exchanging such benign words. ...

This is so sad! Sad that once a man adored and loved by millions, now thought of as a child abuser! He was such a talent and an inspiration, his songs were all about loving yourself and others about equality, freedom and respect! He was a humanitarian, now all cast with a black cloud, that this man, was a predator of the worst kind! I hope these men are telling the truth, it's a terrible thing to lie about, but there are always two sides to every story and unfortunately, he is dead and can't defend himself. People will do crazy things for money. I don't condone what he did, his close relationships with young boys, was so wrong and should have never taken place, there parents, That aloud it, were star struck and very naive. They say he was a master manipulator, but this documentary could also be a master manipulator. Why didn't they come forward sooner, when he was alive? why now? Would they do a lie detector test? It should of gone to Court. No one is guilty until proven guilty. ...

He has changed his story so many times. Obviously most people that come forward about been abused as a child aren't lying but again we are talking about the world's highest-earning deceased celebrity here. So there is a big difference. I'm just not sure, of course I want to believe them, but a part of me doesn't either! I also feel for Micheals children and family too.

I haven't watched both parts of this 4 hour long documentary. I did only watch the first part, but I have to say that it's nearly impossible to think these men are lying. I used to be on the fence about it, but no longer, I believe all of this did happen and with more than just these two boys. I found a website listing a bunch of the boys and the timeline of it all. He had a pattern of befriending a boy between the age of 7-10, becoming extremely close with them for years until they became around 14 or 15 (the age of puberty of course) and then discarding them for another boy of, you guessed it, between the age of 7-10. If that doesn't tell you something loud and clear then I don't know what will. Here is the website mjandboys.wordpress.com/michaelj... It also has links that connect to the individual boys and the whole story of their relationship with Michael. Of course, all the boys don't accuse him and some even defend him, but it's been proven that some victims do defend the predator for years before admitting what happened. ...

@Origamibird She had access to it because her son was in there! I think you’re one of those people who thinks entertainers, or famous people always have someone standing outside every door like the Secret Service does for the US President. They don’t. I know that from personal experience, and in this case, even though her suite was moved, it’d have looked mighty suspicious to her if she had been denied free access to the areas where MJ was because her child was with him and that’d likely have made her remove her son from MJ’s room and have him in her room instead. And he didn’t want that. He worked hard to get the boy IN to his room. And most “stars” don’t have 24/7 exterior door bodyguards. They have them in the room, give them their own rooms nearby, and use them when out and about.

@ditzygypsy Yes, and he wouldn't want a bodyguard outside the door to be able to hear what was happening in there also. If this were any other grown man that had boys sleeping in his bed every night then people would be outraged. He had everyone sucked into the belief that he "didn't have a childhood and he's just a big kid himself". He was a master manipulator that tried to groom the whole world into thinking he was doing these things because he "didn't have a childhood and wanted to give kids the childhood he never had". I've seen it for the load of bs it is now.
