This is the first time that Michael Jackson’s daughter, Paris, has opened up on the controversial documentary ‘Leaving Neverland’ that claims that the late iconic singer sexually abused two men when they were children.

While the world is divided over the content of the docu-film, Paris has sort-of spoken on the issue. She hasn’t issued any official statement but she did take to social media. A Twitterati wrote: “Paris Jackson believes her father, Michael, is innocent of sex abuse claims.” 

In response to this, she wrote: “I actually haven’t made any statements yet, especially regarding how it affects my work life. You guys are reaching a bit. At least this wasn’t a disgusting and attacking article, though.”

It started a thread between Paris and other users. In one tweet, she wrote: “y’all take my life more seriously than i do. calm yo tittaaaaysss” and added it with, “i didn’t mean to offend by expressing that titties should be calm, i know injustices are frustrating and it’s easy to get worked up. but reacting with a calm mind usually is more logical than acting out of rage and also.... it feels better to mellow out.”

‘Leaving Neverland’ gains prominence after it premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. It later aired on HBO featuring testimonies of James Safechuck and Wade Robson who allege that the late pop singer abused them as children. 

Meanwhile, the chaos around the film has led to several radio stations dropping his songs from their playlists and his statue being removed from a British museum.
