This week, R&B singer Ne-Yo refused to cancel Jackson despite the upcoming documentary making headlines and continued to protest Kelly.
According to reports, there’s an upcoming documentary called Leaving Neverland aimed at exposing Jackson’s alleged relationships with kids.
Directed and produced by Dan Reed, Leaving Neverland follows the long-standing accusation of sexual abuse by the crowned King of Pop, Michael Jackson. At the height of his stardom, Jackson began long-running relationships with two boys, aged 7 and 10, and their families. Now in their 30s, they tell the story of how they were sexually abused by Jackson, and how they came to terms with it years later. Leaving Neverland will screen in the special events category.

The Jackson estate has denounced the upcoming documentary.
Representatives for the Jackson estate issued a one-sentence statement in response to Wednesday’s announcement: “This is yet another lurid production in an outrageous and pathetic attempt to exploit and cash in on Michael Jackson.” (Variety)
