In this episode we chat about the recent documentary ‘Leaving Neverland’ which is about the recent allegations of sexual abuse against Michael Jackson by Wade Robson and James Safechuck.
Jackson has been previously accused of abusing young boys in 1993, which he staunchly denied and eventually paid his accusers family 23 million in an out of court settlement.
In 2003 the controversial documentary by Martin Bashir ‘Living with Michael Jackson’ was aired which resulted in a new allegation by one of the children in the documentary.
Michael Jackson remains innocent until proven guilty but has split opinion about his relationship with young children.
We also chat about the Momo Challenge which has caused alarm for parents recently but is there anything behind it or is it just mass hysteria?
