Michael Jackson statue removed from museum following abuse claims

"Leaving Neverland", the controversial two-part documentary featuring two men accusing late King of Pop Michael Jackson of sexually abusing them as children, got more eyeballs in the United Kingdom than in the US.

The allegations against Michael Jackson in HBO's new documentary "Leaving Neverland" are serious.

In New Zealand, an executive at MediaWorks announced Tuesday its radio stations would stop playing Jackson's music.

A Perth radio station has banned Michael Jackson from their playlist after a new accusations that the "King of Pop" molested two young boys. The film highlights allegations of child molestation against the singer, and now, radio stations around the world are deciding that they don't want anything to do with Jackson's music anymore. Last year, Sony purchased Jackson's share of EMI Music Publishing from the Michael Jackson estate for $287.5 million.

Entitled "Michael Jackson and Me", the initial instalment features interviews with both men, who are now in their 30s, and their mothers, who accompanied them to meet Jackson as youth - one family ultimately relocating from Australia to Los Angeles to be closer to the star.

The first part of the documentary, which aired on Channel 4 on Wednesday 6 March, featured Wade Robson and James Safechuck revealing - in detail - the sexual abuse they allegedly suffered at the hands of Michael Jackson.

The company also owns the Nova stations across the country but they only play contemporary music, not past hits.

As a result, many fear, these clinics that serve approximately 4 million people a year may be forced to close their doors. Prior to the ruling, federal law barred Title X grant recipients from using funds to facilitate abortions.

In the interview, R. Kelly had denied all allegations against him.

In 2010 she made a special episode of her eponymous talk show, packing the audience with 200 men who claimed Jackson had assaulted them when they were children. "Leaving Neverland" has already pulled a shadow over the Jackson name, just days after its release, and it's probable that Sony didn't foresee such a huge cost in damages.

That's according to a report in the Wall Street Journal citing a person familiar with the agreement, which it says was to last for seven years.

The second part of Finding Neverland airs on Channel 4 tonight at 9pm.

James first met Michael when he was cast to join the star in a Pepsi commercial.

"We're always guided by the audience", said Leon Wratt of MediaWorks.
