The Jackson estate is striking back.
Sunday night marked the arrival of the first part of HBO's two-night feature of the Leaving Neverland documentary, which chronicles testimonies from accusers of Michael Jackson who allege that the late singer sexually abused them as children.
While the film aired, Jackson's estate seemingly issued a challenge to the controversial flick by redirecting fans to the 1992 concert film Live In Bucharest (The Dangerous Tour). The film, according to the estate, will be made available for a limited time.
It's only the latest move from the Jackson estate and family to challenge the documentary since the announcement of its arrival last year, with a $100 million lawsuit even being filed against HBO. In addition to the public upload of Live in Bucharest, another concert film, Live At Wembley Stadium will go live on Monday evening as part two of the documentary is set to air.
An Oprah Winfrey interview with the film's director Dan Reed and Jackson's two accusers, Wade Robson and James Safechuck, will air immediately after part two of the documentary.
“This movie transcends Michael Jackson,” Oprah told an audience during the taping of the broadcast in New York. “It allows us to see societal corruption.”
