Michael Jackson’s estate snobs Emmy win for ‘Leaving Neverland’

HBO’s high-profile documentary Leaving Neverland, which addresses allegations of sexual abuse against Michael Jackson, took home the award for Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Special at the Creative Arts Emmys on Saturday, and the late singer’s estate is slamming the decision.

The Jackson estate said in a statement released to ET, that the film’s win, for a film is a complete fiction to be honored in a nonfiction Emmy category is a complete farce.

The statement further claims 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.

Leaving Neverland, is a two-part HBO documentary focusing on accusations of sexual abuse and misconduct leveled by James Safechuck and Wade Robson.
