The trailer for the new Michael Jackson documentary, Leaving Neverland: Michael Jackson and Me, has been released and it's more than a little uncomfortable to watch.

Scenes of allegations of sexual abuse against children emerge, detailing interviews with two men; Wade Robson and James Safechuck, who claim to have been sexually assaulted by the King of Pop as kids.

Leaving Neverland will air on Channel 4 from March 6, and is an exhausting four hours long series of footage and testimony. 

In the trailer, which is 40 seconds long,  Wade says of Michael Jackson;

"He said, “Do you and the family want to come to Neverland?” ‘He was one of the kindest people I knew and he also sexually abused me. I was seven-years-old."

Wade Robson was seven-years-old at the time, and James Safechuck was 10. Both detail abuse at the hands of Michael Jackson at his Neverland Ranch.

“It’s undeniably a kind of true-life horror movie,” Variety’s review of the documentary read. “You walk out of it shaken, but on some level liberated by its dark exposé… Devastating.”

The Hollywood Reporter wrote that the programme is; “Complicated and heartbreaking. It’s doubtful you’ll feel exactly the same after watching.”

“The sheer variety and volume of horrifying disclosures made here… make Leaving Neverland both riveting and grueling, impossible to turn away from and the definition of a tough sit.”The Los Angeles Times wrote.

The first trailer was released this morning ahead of its launch on HBO in the US and Channel 4 in the UK on March 6, and the documentary premiered at the Sundance Film Festival.

The interviews with the now adult Robson and Safechuck and their mothers as they try to process their trauma are incredibly powerful. Robson’s mother especially struggles to deal with just how complicit she was in the alleged abuse.

“Secrets will eat you up, you feel so alone,” Safechuck says at one point.

“Jackson told me, if they ever found out what they were doing he and I would go to jail for the rest of our lives,” Robson says. “I want to be able to speak the truth as loud as I had to speak the lie for so long.” 

The Dan Reed-directed two part docu-series has been plagued with controversy since January, when it debuted at the Sundance Film Festival.

The Jackson estate has slammed the documentary, disavowing the claims;

 “This is yet another lurid production in an outrageous and pathetic attempt to exploit and cash in on Michael Jackson,” a statement from the estate read.

“This so-called ‘documentary’ is just another rehash of dated and discredited allegations. It’s baffling why any credible filmmaker would involve himself with this project.”

Jackson’s brother Jermaine added: “Just leave us alone, leave him alone, let him rest, please. He deserves to rest.”

The filmmakers of Leaving Neverland have responded to the criticism of their work by stressing how vital it is to listen to survivors of abuse;

In a statement, director Dan Reed said: “If there’s anything we’ve learned during this time in our history, it’s that sexual abuse is complicated, and survivors’ voices need to be listened to. It took great courage for these two men to tell their stories and I have no question about their validity."

"I believe anyone who watches this film will see and feel the emotional toll on the men and their families and will appreciate the strength it takes to confront long-held secrets.”

Speaking to Variety, Dan Reed added that the documentary is not about Jackson;. “This is not a movie about Michael Jackson abusing little boys,” Reed said.

“It’s a movie about two families and how two families came to terms with what their sons revealed to them many years after Jackson died.”

Jackson had always vehemently denied any allegations of abuse. Legal proceedings were brought against him in 2005, but Jackson was acquitted on all counts of child molestation, child intoxication and conspiracy to kidnap a child.

Paris Jackson, daughter of the late King of Pop Michael Jackson, is seeking treatment for issues relating to her emotional and mental health.

According to Entertainment Tonight, Paris is currently living in a mental health facility following a whirlwind year of work engagements, new music releases, photoshoots and public appearances.

A source spoke to ET, saying; "After a busy year of work engagements that took her all over the globe, Paris decided that she needed to take some time off to reboot, realign and prioritize her physical and emotional health."

"She checked herself into a treatment facility to aid in her wellness plan and is looking forward to coming out of this revitalized and ready to tackle the exciting new projects that await her," the insider added.

The young model suddenly ceased sharing any images on social media from the middle of December, and failed to join her family on holiday in Toyka over Christmas.

This is an unusual move for the star, who is very close with her younger brothers especially. Her followers then began to speculate that her mental health may have been suffering.

The 20-year old has had a manic year career-wise, and had to face the heartbreaking death of her grandfather Joe Jackson.

She has been hugely sought after in the fashion world, and since her Hollywood debut, it's apparent that the youngster is a new 'It Girl' on the scene.

Paris last hit the headlines in September 2018 for calling out paparazzi who were verbally attacking her as she left a New York Fashion Week event.

She has regularly discussed her struggles with self-confidence and depression, which drove her to attempt to commit suicide for the first time when she was only 13-years-old.

She later attempted to take her own life again aged 15 multiple times, leading her to enter a therapeutic school;

"I was going through a lot of, like, teen angst. And I was also dealing with my depression and my anxiety without any help," she told Rolling Stone in 2017. 

Hopefully she's getting the help she needs.

Adding to the array of photos, Paris penned a lengthy and heartfelt message in the wake of his passing.

"Spending those last few moments with you were everything. Being able to tell you everything I needed to tell you before saying goodbye was such a blessing. everyone that came to visit you, came with love, respect, and so much pride in their hearts for you. Proud of you, proud to be your children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, proud to have your strength and share the dynasty you spent your life creating, and proud to be Jackson," she said.

"You are the first true Jackson. the legend that started it all. None of us would be anywhere near where we’re at if it weren’t for you. You are the strongest man I know. your life’s work will go down in history, as will you, to be known as one of the greatest patriarchs to ever live. I will cherish every moment with you til the day I die, especially our last moments. Being able to hold your hand, lay with you and cuddle you, give you kisses all over your cheeks and forehead, meant more to me than you’ll ever know," she added. 

Paris continued by explaining how wonderful their relationship had been from her childhood, right through to the present day.

"Quoting advice you gave me when I was a little kid and seeing your eyes light up, sharing stories my dad used to tell me about you, telling a joke and hearing you laugh for the last time… My heart is full knowing we left each other in that way. I made you promise me you’ll come to visit me.

"You agreed and I’m going to hold you to it. and I promised you that we will keep telling your story, over and over. to never be forgotten. my great grandchildren will know who Joseph Jackson is. I love you, grandpa. so so so much that words can’t describe." 

The daughter of the King of Pop finished by thanking her grandfather and that they will see each other soon. 

"I have immense gratitude for you, and always will. we all feel that way. Thank you for everything. Truly. Rest in peace and transition. I’ll see you in my dreams very very soon."

Reports have indicated that the 89-year-old passed away on Wednesday morning. 

In their time of grief, members of the Jackson family have asked to respect their loss and stop commenting negatively.

We chat a lot about body positivity here at SHEmazing HQ, and from regular women to big name celebrities, it's invigorating to see women embrace themselves. 

Body positivity is about shedding the shame that can come from having societally perceived 'flaws' and embracing yourself as you are, and Paris Jackson is doing just that in her latest Instagram post. 

The daughter of the late Micheal Jckson has never been shy about showing off her tattoos, but her latest post came with a positive messages. 

While many homages to self-love come with essay-length captions on Instagram, Paris kept her's short and sweet:

'Comfortable in my rolls,' she captioned the post, which featured a snap of her sitting relaxed in a pair of grey Calvin Kleins. 

'F*** wit me,' (sic) she added, challenging anyone to come for her display of partial nudity and declaration of self acceptance. 

Paris is proving that women (and men) of all sizes deserve recognition in the body positive space. 

This isn't the first time Paris has shared a snap like this on the social media platform. 

Paris previously posted another topless images, discussing the many reasons why she feels that nudity is a comfortable state for her. 

'I'm usually naked when i garden. It's actually a beautiful thing and you don't have to make it sexual the way many Hollywood stars (and the media) do,' she captioned a previous post. 

'Not only is your body a temple and should be worshipped as so, but also part of feminism is being able to express yourself in your own way, whether it's being conservative and wearing lots of clothes or showing yourself.'

Paris Jackson has spoken out about her feelings on the hit Netflix show 13 Reasons Why

The daughter of the late Michael Jackson shared a post with her Instagram followers which details why the show could be harmful to viewers. 

Paris has previously discussed her own mental health issues, and told her followers that while the show is a great way to open a dialogue about such issues, she feels it may be triggering to those dealing with depression, self-harm or suicidal thoughts. 

'Came across this online and i'm not sure what the source is but this is really important to spread towards people that are struggling with depression or anxiety, self-harm, and or suicidal thoughts,' she captioned a snap of a Tumblr post she shared to Instagram. 

'This show was an amazing way to get the message across to bullies that they need to stop doing what they are doing, it really did a good job of showing how impactful words and actions can be to other human beings.'

'You can't just do or say things to people without thinking about how it will affect them. but at the same time it is also an extremely triggering thing to watch. please only watch this show with caution and keep in mind that it may put you in a dark place.'

'If you are struggling please don't watch it. if you think you can handle it, please by all means check it out.'

The series, produced by Selena Gomez, follows the story of 17-year-old Hannah Baker, a high-school student who ultimately takes her own life.

Netflix previously released a statement on the issues, saying: 'We wanted to do it in a way where it was honest, and we wanted to make something that can hopefully help people because suicide should never ever be an option.'

Sky Arts have cancelled an episode of their highly anticipated television movie Urban Myths, which featured Michael Jackson, after the trailer received major backlash from fans. 

Paris Jackson was adamantly against the casting of Joseph Fiennes as her father, Michael Jackson, in the upcoming flick.

“I’m so incredibly offended by it, as I’m sure plenty of people are as well,” Paris responded on Twitter, when asked for her thoughts on the portrayal.

"It makes me want to vomit."

The TV movie was set to focus on an alleged road trip across America that Michael Jackson took with Elizabeth Taylor and Marlon Brando, after 9/11.

However, people were outraged by the depiction of MJ in the TV movie.

"We have taken the decision not to broadcast Elizabeth, Michael And Marlon, a half-hour episode from the Sky Arts Urban Myths series, in light of the concerns expressed by Michael Jackson's immediate family.

We set out to take a light-hearted look at reportedly true events and never intended to cause any offence. Joseph Fiennes fully supports our decision," read a statement from Sky Arts. 

Paris took to Twitter to express her surprise and gratitude at the fact that the opinion of the family was taken into consideration. 

Michael's nephew, TJ, also took to Twitter to thank people for helping to preserve Michael's dignity. 

The trailer of the film has been set to private on YouTube.

The TV movie focuses on an alleged road trip across America that Michael Jackson took with Elizabeth Taylor and Marlon Brando after 9/11.

A debate arose on Twitter when the casting of the film was originally released about the fact that MJ would be played by a white mad despite his African-American heritage.

“Where is the respect? They worked through blood sweat and tears for ages to create such profound and remarkable legacies. Shameful portrayal,” Paris continued.

“He made a point of it plenty of times to express his pride in his roots. He would never have wanted this.”

“It angers me to see how obviously intentional it was for them to be this insulting, not just towards my father, but my godmother liz as well," she finished.

“It is part of a series of comedies about unlikely stories from arts and cultural history. Sky Arts gives producers the creative freedom to cast roles as they wish, within the diversity framework which we have set,” Sky Arts previously told People

Earlier this summer Paris explained how she uses arm tattoos to cover scars left from periods of self harm.

According to Teen Vogue, she stated on Instagram: “Today I can look at my inner forearms and see art that has meaning for me, I don't see a dark past anymore.  My scars and past of self-hatred have been covered by loving marks, creativity, ingenuity…and depth.”

“Sure I will always carry my past with me, but I see ink as a way of changing for the better, always improving.  They represent strength for me.”

The John Lennon tattoo’s Insta debut comes just days after Paris shocked fans by sharing a heart-wrenching video in which she revealed the distress she’s suffered at the hands of online bullies.
