Corey Feldman defends Michael Jackson as ‘Leaving Neverland’ airs

"All I know is what I experienced."

Former child star Corey Feldman has defended Michael Jackson, after Leaving Neverland saw the late music icon facing disturbing allegations of sexual abuse.

The documentary aired on US television over the last two nights and features testimonies from James Safechuck and Wade Robson – who allege that they were molested by Jackson while staying at his Neverland ranch as children.

While the show has attracted backlash from Jackson’s fans, Lost Boys star Feldman has now led the high profile backlash against the film. The actor described the film as “poorly made” and said that Jackson was never abusive during his frequent visits to the star’s home.

“I watched it, all I know is what I experienced and yes every experience was the same… right up 2 the sex part,” wrote Feldman on Twitter.

“That is where it becomes La La Land instead of Neverland for me. We never spoke about sex other than a few warnings about how sex was scary and dangerous.”

He added: “MJ never once swore in my presence, never touched me inappropriately and never ever suggested we should be lovers in any way. I feel like if people could hear our convos they would hear the innocence in them. No hint of perversion.”

As he went on, Feldman claimed he owned a tape that would show the true nature of his relationship with Jackson.

While Feldman also questioned Safechuck and Robson for defending Jackson in court, he later said he was “praying” for the pair.

This comes after Feldman previously claimed that a network of high-profile paedophiles was actively operating within Hollywood.

Last week, Leaving Neverland director Dan Reed told NME how he expects further alleged victims of Jackson to come forward in the wake of the documentary.

“Michael Jackson had unlimited power and unlimited wealth. Children looked up to him. And he exploited that to the hilt. In James’ and Wade’s cases, that sexual abuse lasted several years. I believe he sexually exploited a good many more little boys in his paedophile career,” said Reed.

“I think [more] will [come out], eventually, yeah. As the Michael Jackson fans say: ‘lies run sprints, but the truth runs marathons’. And that’s exactly what’s happening here. Sooner or later, it will come out.”
