MICHAEL JACKSON ESTATE SLAMS ‘LEAVING NEVERLAND’ EMMY WIN

Michael Jackson's estate is not too happy about Leaving Neverland winning the 2019 Emmy for Outstanding Documentary/Nonfiction Special. The documentary focused on Wade Robson and James Safechuck and their allegations against Jackson of sexual abuse. The estate said in a statement, "For a film that is a complete fiction to be honored in a nonfiction Emmy category is a complete farce. Not one shred of proof supports this completely one-sided, so-called documentary which was made in secrecy and for which not one person outside of the two subjects and their families were interviewed."

MJ's estate filed a lawsuit against HBO and Time Warner back in February, seeking upwards of $100 million for allegedly breaching a non-disparagement clause in a contract from 1999.
