Social Media Erupts After First Half of ‘Leaving Neverland’ Airs

Fans of the King of Pop were outraged following the airing of the HBO documentary Leaving Neverland. The seemingly one-sided series is attempting to mar Michael Jackson’s once unquestionable legacy.

Featuring Wade Robson and James Safechuck, Director Dan Reed filmed the controversial documentary to bare skeletons in MJ’s closet. Wade Robson alleges that the beloved pop star molested him for 7 years. James Safechuck claims Michael Jackson molested him for years from the age of 10. However, fans of the icon are saying the men featured are liars. Among the major complaints is the testimony that both men provided in their adulthood where both men stated Michael Jackson never harmed them.

Celebrities that were close to Michael Jackson have yet to co-sign the allegations of Michael’s abuse. Macaulay Culkin and Corey Feldman were both incredibly close to the singer in their youth. While Wade Robson says Culkin replaced him, Culkin maintains MJ never harmed him. Corey Feldman, who has comprised a list of all known pedophiles in Hollywood, has stated multiple times that Michael was the one adult he knew would keep him safe.

“Nothing Happened”

Other inconsistencies from the alleged victims accounts have drawn criticism along with evidence that they have attempted to profit from their connection to Michael. On August 29th, 2015, it was discovered that Wade Robson had listed several items on eBay. Using a pseudonym, Chantal818, the seller listed Michael Jackson memorabilia from Playa Del Rey, California. Priced at $1100, one photo was of particular significance as the inscription read “To WADE the Best friend in the universe. Love, Michael Jackson.” So how did fans discover Wade listed the items? Instagram. Found of Wade Robson’s sisters Instagram, the post featured the same coffee table from eBay listing.

Changing Tales

Inconsistencies in James Safechuck’s account of sexual abuse has drawn much ire from the public as well. In May 2014, Safechuck alleged that Michael assaulted him during the 1988 Bad Tour. However, the timeline for the tour and following events do not match Safechuck’s account. Safechuck insists that he was assaulted in New York after Michael Jackson performed at the 1989 Grammy’s. However, the Grammy’s took place in Los Angeles, not New York and Michael didn’t perform, nor did he attend.

Those critical of dissonant fans are showing support for Safechuck and Robson as survivors. Many state that the contact Jackson had with children that were not his own was questionable. They also implore those loyal to the singer to examine their cognitive dissonance and dethrone the king of pop.

What’s your stance on Leaving Neverland? Are you standing with survivors or do you think Michael Jackson is innocent?

Cardi Hustlers

Cardi B is making money moves to the big screen! The Grammy winning rapper has signed on to star in the stripper revenge film ‘Hustlers’, alongside J. Lo, Keke Palmer, and Constance Wu.

When we saw J. Lo twirling on the pole a few weeks ago, we thought she was just trying something new for A-Rod. Turns out, she was training for a new film. Titled ‘Hustlers’ and set for release later this year, the film is set during the 2008 financial crisis. The film centers around a team of strippers who want revenge on their Wall Street Johns and hope to scam their former clients out of hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Written and directed by Lorene Scafaria, this will be Cardi’s first feature film. She will be sharing the screen with the likes of Julia Stiles and Lili Reinhart. Quite the step up from her Love & Hip Hop days! But this isn’t Cardi’s first time acting. She did have a guest role on BET’s Being Mary Jane in 2017.

Wendy Williams Reveals She’s Been Living in “Sober Home”

wendy williams reveals addiction

For years people scolded Wendy for never spilling her own tea. Well, here it is. Wendy Williams has been living in a “sober home” to quietly get treatment for a long unresolved addition to cocaine.

Revealing a secret known only to her husband, Kevin Hunter, Wendy says although she has always been candid about her cocaine use, she never sought treatment. The daytime television gossip queen shared with her audience that after each episode is filmed she goes to her Pilates class and then heads to several meetings across the city before ultimately returning to her group home. Driven by a “24-hour sober coach”, Wendy has been rooming at a facility where it’s “doors locked by 10 pm, lights out by 10pm.” Detailing her evenings, she says, “I go to my room and stare at the ceiling and fall asleep to come here and see you.”

“It’s my truth.”

Over the course of her career, Wendy Williams has discussed her drug use multiple times. However, when it comes to how she stopped, Wendy says, “I never went to a place to get the treatment — I didn’t know how, except God was just sitting on my shoulder and I just stopped.” While she was seeking professional help for her addiction, Wendy said she did not confide in her other family members. As for whether her stay in the group home contributed to her absence from January to March 4th, we can’t be sure. A fractured shoulder and ongoing battle with Graves’ disease are credited as responsible for her extended break.

Wendy’s admission has been applauded by many who want to remove the stigma surrounding drug addiction discussions. Many have taken to Twitter to share their love and support for her. Recently, Wendy’s foundation partnered with an organization geared toward branching treatment and long-term recovery. She hopes that by being open about her struggle, other will be inspired to get the help they need.
