Oprah Winfrey To Host “Leaving Neverland” After Show Special With Michael Jackson Accusers

Despite the blowback and backlash over the premiere of HBO’s “Leaving Neverland,” which details allegations of sexual abuse at the hands of Michael Jackson, Oprah Winfrey will be sitting down to host a Q&A with Jackson’s accusers. 

According to Variety, in collaboration with HBO and Winfrey’s OWN network, the Queen of All Media will join “Leaving Neverland” director Dan Reed and accusers, Wade Robson and James Safechuck, for the “Oprah Winfrey Presents: After Neverland” after show.

The after show will air on March 4 after the second installment of the four-hour documentary, in which Robson and Safechuck detail allegations of sexual abuse by the late King of Pop – despite previously testifying in support of the late superstar. The show will also be recorded in front of an audience of sexual abuse survivors, and will also air as part of Oprah’s “Oprah SuperSoul Conversations” podcast. 

In the meantime, Jackson’s family and estate have refuted the claims made in the documentary, calling into question Robson and Safechuck’s credibility. 

“The facts are public record,” Marlon Jackson, Michael’s older brother, said of the men’s claims. Meanwhile, Jackie, another one of Jackson’s brothers, said simply, “Michael’s not here to defend himself.”
