Jackson Family Hires Lawyers To Fight Premiere Of New Documentary On Micheal Jackson

The family of Micheal Jackson are doing everything in their power to stop a new documentary from being released. Jackson who died at 50 in 2009, is at the center of a new scathing documentary set to premiere at the ‘Sundance Film Festival’ this week in Utah. One of Jackson’s three children, model Paris Jackson, has been sent to rehab earlier this month. Jackson who turns 21 in April has been plagued with substance abuse and mental health issues, since the singer’s death.

The film ‘Leaving Neverland’ is supposed to premiere this weekend at the festival. The family are concerned with how the film will effect the singer’s ongoing legacy. The matriarch of the famous musical clan Kathrine Jackson,88, and some of her other children, have been meeting with their legal team. According to a source, ‘the family is exploring their options, if the film does premiere and contains any falsehoods, they are prepared to sue the producers.’ Michael’s nephew and Tito’s son Taj Jackson set up a ‘Go Fund Me’ page to raise money for ‘their own documentary.’

The family says the source ‘wants to put all the rumors that MJ was a child molester to rest, once and for all.’ A majority of the film which is a four part documentary, deals with several men who claim that Jackson molested them when they were children. Two of the men have been making these claims for several years, Wade Robson and James Safechuck now both 36. Both of them spent large amount of time with Jackson at his Neverland Ranch home near Santa Barbara, CA. Taj said as the family prepares to hold ceremonies marking the 10th anniversary of Jackson’s death, they have to deal with this. Jackson died on June 25th, 2009, his personal physician Conrad Murray was found criminally liable for his death and served two years in prison.
