The Leaving Neverland documentary has people split on whether on not to believe the allegations of sexual abuse allegedly committed by Michael Jackson. The film centers on Wade Robson and James Safechuck accusing the King of Pop, openly saying he abused children. However, there’s been multiple people who have spoken up against the allegations, one of them was T.I., saying that he believes the accusers have other motives for attempting to expose the legend.
In a recent interview with Piers Morgan, Dan Reed, the director of the film, and told Reed that he believes the two accusers are money-hungry. “This is a huge payday for anyone who can establish they were a victim. I don’t know the truth. I’m questioning you as a director,” Morgan reportedly said. Morgan even went as far as to play an interview he did with Jackson back in 1999 talking about how he’d rather “kill himself” than hurt children.
“If it wasn’t for children I would throw in the towel, I would kill myself, I wouldn’t care to live,” Jackson said. “They give me my inspiration, they give me… they inspire me. Everything I do, every song I write, the dance, everything I do. They try to use it against me and it’s just been so unfair and I’m very upset.”
Reed countered Morgan by saying, “Why should we not believe them?…You are swallowing hook, line, and sinker. This is not about money. They are suing for justice…They want justice, they are not fussed about the money.”
T.I. went on to post Piers Morgan’s 1999 interview with Michael Jackson agreeing with his sentiments for the King of Pop.

Pierce Morgan a real one for this. Let this man speak for himself to defend his legacy. Don’t just listen to one side and expect to find truth. Oh that’s right…Dead men can’t speak. So what was the point again? Destroy another strong black historical LEGEND?!?! It’s several examples of pedophilia in American History… if y’all pulling up all our old shit… we gotta examine ELVIS PRESLEY, HUGH HEPHNER,and a whole slew of others guilty of the same if not more!!! BUT WHY US all the time? There’s an agenda to destroy OUR CULTURE. #KingsThoughts
