NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES (FEBRUARY 27, 2019) (OWN: OPRAH WINFREY NETWORK – Oprah Winfrey has fronted a special talk show ‘Oprah Presents: After Neverland’ in relation to the controversial Michael Jackson documentary “Leaving Neverland” which is currently airing on HBO.
The talk show, which is scheduled to be aired on Monday (March 3, 2019) at 10pm ET/PT on HBO and OWN, sees Winfrey interview the two men, Wade Robson and James Safechuck, who allege they were abused by pop star Michael Jackson as children.
In excerpts given out by the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN), Winfrey is seen asking Robson why he continued to have contact with Jackson after what he alleged and Safechuck why he never testified when he had the chance.
The Jackson estate has denied any of the documentary’s allegations and the Jackson family has spoken out against the documentary filmmaker, Dan Reed.
Jackson, who died in June 2009, was acquitted at a 2005 trial in California on charges of molesting a different, 13- year-old boy at his Neverland ranch in California. In 1994, he settled a sexual abuse lawsuit concerning another 13 year-old boy.
