Following the airing of HBO’s explosive documentary “Leaving Neverland,” Michael Jackson’s kids – Prince, Paris and Prince Michael Jackson II, aka “Blanket” are considering filing a lawsuit against alleged sexual abuse victims Wade Robson and James Safechuck.
The potential suit, according to a source close to the family, would be for fraud, emotional distress, slander and misrepresentation.
Both Robson and Safechuck appeared in the documentary alleging they were sexually abused by the late pop legend, who died in 2009.
News of the siblings’ plans comes weeks after the Jackson family slammed the documentary, declaring it wasn’t “telling the truth.”
We’re told Prince, Paris and Blanket are not seeking money, but that any money awarded would be given to charity.
Instead of cash, the kids want Robson and Safechuck to accept “responsibility” and to give an “apology.”
The family source added, “It’s very important to them they carry forward” their father’s “legacy of philanthropy and humility.”
In late February, the Jackson estate sued HBO for breach of contract and believes it could be awarded at least $100 million in damages.
After the premiere of the documentary at the Sundance Film Festival, Robson and Safechuck said finding each other was an important part of their decision to share their stories.
Both men claim they were not paid for their participation in the documentary.
