Corey Feldman has defended the late Michael Jackson after viewing documentary Leaving Neverland, and is considering releasing a tape of the late star showing “the innocence” of their relationship.
Former child star Feldman was prompted to speak out in defence of the late King of Pop after watching the much talked about HBO documentary in which director Dan Reed details Jackson’s alleged sexual molestation of James Safechuck and Wade Robson.
Like them, Feldman also enjoyed a close relationship with Jackson as a teenager, but he insists he was never once the victim of any form of abuse.
“#Neverland OK i watched it all i know is what i experienced, & yes every experience was the same….right up 2 the sex part! that is where it becomes lala land, instead of neverland 4 me. we never spoke about sex other than a few warnings about how sex was scary, & dangerous,” he began a series of tweets.
“mj never once swore in my presence, never touched me inappropriately, & never ever suggested we should be lovers in any way! i feel like if ppl could hear our convos they would hear the innocence in them. no hint of perversion. i hav a tape, im thinkin about releasing, which could
“giv ppl a real look @ what a 30 yr old man/child & a 13 yr old boy would discuss, so every1 could hear the innocence of r relationship (sic).”
The Goonies actor went on to reiterate that he wasn’t present when Safechuck and Robson claim their abuse took place, but he did enjoy spending time at Jackson’s Neverland ranch in California, where the singer would sleep in a bedroom with young boys, at the same time as Safechuck.
Feldman, who is in the process of exposing alleged paedophiles in Hollywood who he claims sexually abused him and others, concedes that the pair deserve to have their voice heard, but their versions of events don’t match up with the Jackson he knew.
“most pedos r serial offenders. they dont hav self control. so given the opportunity which he certainly had w me & others, being alone, w no parents around, how did he control those urges so well, while so blatantly sexual w those 2 boys? it doesnt really fit the profile. but what motive besides $ do they hav? abandonment is a strong 1 (sic),” he wrote, adding he takes issue that Jackson, who died in 2009, has no way to defend himself.
“i only hav my memories. and thank god 4 me, my memories of mj were mostly fond, aside from r 1 & only fight because he incorrectly feared i would turn on him, & make up lies. i never did. i never would! i pray those boys can sleep w that same clarity of consciousness! let god b thy judge!”
