Michael Jackson Estate Blasts HBO Over New Documentary

Lawyers for Michael Jackson's estate have admonished HBO over the network’s decision to proceed in airing its documentary "Leaving Neverland," Rolling Stone reports. An attorney for the estate, Howard Weitzman, sent a 10-page letter to HBO CEO Richard Plepler calling the film a “one-sided, sensationalist program,” and questioned the credibility of the two accusers, Wade Robson and James Safechuck, who are the focus of the documentary. “The Estate spent years litigating with Robson and Safechuck, and had four different lawsuits by these two men dismissed with prejudice,” the letter said. “Today, Robson owes the estate almost $70,000 in court costs, and Safechuck owes the estate several thousand dollars as well.” HBO responded to the letter saying that its plans remain unchanged, and that the documentary will air March 3 and 4.
