Michael Jackson’s children are having Wade Robson and James Safechuck investigated before they sue them for accusing their father of molestation and sexual assault.
The two men were the main subjects of HBO’s Leaving Neverland documentary. Prince, Paris, and Prince Michael Jackson the Second (better known as Blanket) want to know if Robson and Safechuck were paid for their participation, and are having investigators look for holes in their stories.
One thing the Jacksons are looking into is Wade’s Hawaii-based charity. Prior to Leaving Neverland, it was called the “Robson Family Fund,” which was set up through the Hawaii Community Foundation.
After the documentary, the name was changed to the “Robson Child Abuse Healing and Prevention Fund.” They feel like Wade and his wife have capitalized on the popularity of the documentary.
The Jackson children plan on suing Wade and James for fraud, emotional distress, slander, and misrepresentation. They’re not looking for money, but will give any amount awarded to charity.
“The three children say that all they want is to preserve their father’s musical legacy. They feel that the ‘documentary’ was one-sided and the two men have made numerous claims that aren’t true. As for the allegations, they believe that per their own investigation and other news sources, money raised by the two men and maybe others has not gone to a charity or to promote anything positive. They want formal answers on the ‘charity’ issue of Mr. Robson and his ‘donation’ and more. They certainly haven’t used their new platform and that is the point. The Jacksons use theirs to help others. It’s the principle, but it’s also possibly illegal and they want answers.”
