Corey Feldman Changes Tune; Says He Can No Longer Defend Michael Jackson

Though Corey Feldman has always defended childhood buddy Michael Jackson, the actor now says he can no longer do that in light of the HBO documentary Leaving Neverland.

Corey appeared on CNN’s Headline News this week and said that being a victim of sexual abuse himself and after hearing "more and more accusations thrown around by various people ... it becomes impossible for me to remain virtuous and not at least consider what’s being said and not listen to what the victims are saying.”

He adds that it’s “very important” to “consider all sides of this, even as uncomfortable as that might be.”

Corey still insists that Michael never touched him inappropriately, but doesn't want to be seen as defending the late singer. "I cannot in good consciousness defend anyone who’s being accused of such horrendous things,” Corey said. “But at the same time, I’m also not here to judge him, because again, he did not do those things to me and that was not my experience.”
