Paris Jackson speaks out for the first time after 'Leaving Neverland' documentary to slam tabloid reports
Paris Jackson has now broken her silence on the controversial Leaving Neverland documentary.
The actress and model previously refused to address the sexual abuse allegations levelled against her father by Wade Robson and James Safechuck in the two-part Dan Reed feature. But today, she responded to a tweet made by Gay Star News to clarify that she has not yet made any official statements on her stance on the matter.
Paris replied to a Gay Star News tweet which read, "Paris Jackson believes her father, Michael, is innocent of sex abuse claims".
She was quick to clarify that she had made no such assertion. "I actually haven't made any statements yet, especially regarding how it affects my work life," she replied. "You guys are reaching a bit. At least this wasn’t a disgusting and attacking article though. Y'all take my life more seriously than I do. Calm yo tittaaaaysss"
"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 [...] Smoke some weed n think about the bigger picture. chillax my dudes," she later added.
Leaving Neverland was broadcast in the UK on Channel 4 yesterday evening, and some viewers took to social media to assert that they were "heartbroken" and "sick" at Robson and Safechucks' allegations that they were abused by the Billie Jean singer at his Neverland ranch.
Publications have previously reported that Paris believes that her father was innocent, and that she was refusing to watch the two hour documentary.
But while the 20-year-old hasn't publicly denounced or corroborated Safechuck and Robson's claims, a number of Micheal's family - including his nephew Taj and several of his brothers - have called out the documentary, and branded it "one-sided".
The late singer's estate filed a $75 million lawsuit against HBO before its premiere, saying that the film was "unvetted propaganda to shamelessly exploit an innocent man no longer here to defend himself."
Micheal previously denied all sexual abuse allegations made against him up until his death in 2009.
The music icon is survived by Paris, his 22-year-old son, Prince - born Micheal Joseph Prince Jackson Jr - and 17-year-old Blanket - born Prince Micheal Jackson II.
