Michael Jackson: Director is defending 'Leaving Neverland'

The director of Leaving Neverland is defending his documentary in the face of a British journalist debunking claims by its star witnesses. Dan Reed disagrees with charges that dates or locations don't line up.

Mike Smallcombe, whose 2016 book Making Michael was seen as generally favorable to Jackson, has found inconsistencies in the testimony seen in the film, compared to previous statements made under oath.

The biggest discrepancy involves James Safechuck's allegation that he was abused from 1988 until 1992, when he was 14 -- with some of the crimes committed in an upstairs room in Neverland’s train station. But that train station wasn't even approved for construction until 1993.

Reed says that even if the dates don't line up, he stands by Safechuck’s abuse claims. And Safechuck has photos used in the show, taken at the building in question. (NME)
