Michael Jackson’s brothers Tito, Marlon and Jackie, as well as his nephew, Taj were on “CBS This Morning” to defend the singer in the wake of this weekend’s HBO documentary “Leaving Neverland.”
They all insist Michael never sexually abused Wade Robson and James Safechuck, the two accusers featured in the documentary, with Marlon noting, "We know our brother. Michael wouldn't do anything like that.”
As for why the two men would accuse Michael, they believe it all boils down to one thing. ""It's always been about money," Taj shares. "I hate to say it when it's my uncle, it's almost like they see a blank check. Because they've been taken care of their whole life and I think that's the problem. These people... felt that they're owed something. You know, instead of working for something, they blame everything on my uncle."
·Marlon also blasted the film’s director Dan Reed for not questioning the two accusers at all. "He trusted them -- which there's nothing wrong with that -- but you must verify," Marlon said. "Because when you start throwing allegations out about someone, then you gotta go back and go, 'Wait a minute. Let me make sure I'm telling the right thing. Make sure they're not selling me a bunch of goods, which they were."
·One person who hasn’t been vocal about the documentary is Janet Jackson, but Marlon insists, “everyone feels the same way about this.” Taj adds, "I think there is a fear as well to put more energy to it and more eyeballs to it, I think that’s why my aunt Janet hasn’t said anything because she doesn’t want to make it any bigger.”
