Official Michael Jackson concert films appear on YouTube during Leaving Neverland broadcasts

Whether you watched or not, HBO's documentary Leaving Neverland which is already earned the cable network multiple lawsuits from a man featured in the doc and the Estate of Jackson revisits child molestation accusations against Michael Jackson has the internet talking.

The Goonies actor went on to reiterate that he wasn't present when Safechuck and Robson claim their abuse took place, but he did enjoy spending time at Jackson's Neverland ranch in California, where the singer would sleep in a bedroom with young boys and at the same time as Safechuck.

"Leaving Neverland", directed by Dan Reed, details allegations of sexual abuse leveled against the late music icon, and features interviews with accusers James Safechuck and Wade Robson.

"You and I were brought together by God".

Robson said of Jackson, "We used to spend hours and hours and hours on the phone". When I wasn't with him, I was thinking of him.

In more recent years Robson would later (unsuccessfully) apply for a job with the Jackson family as a choreographer for the Immortal live shows.

"He told me if they ever found out what we were doing, he and I would go to jail", says Robson in the trailer. And then he started calling me Little One. But he added, "And he also sexually abused me for seven years". He also once testified that Jackson did not molest him. "I believed that I was a consenting participant in the sexual acts".

THE HUFFINGTON POST reports, "The family of JACKSON, who died in 2009, has called the film "a public lynching.' In a statement, the JACKSON estate called the movie 'a one-sided marathon of unvetted propaganda to shamelessly exploit an innocent man no longer here to defend himself".

Jackson's estate, which has sued HBO and slammed the documentary as "another rehash of dated and discredited allegations", had other plans Sunday, dropping the concert footage on YouTube at the same time as the premiere.
