Her bombshell interview aimed to confirm the accusations cast against MJ for years, now surfacing again in the Sundance, HBO film Leaving Neverland.
McManus claimed on multiple occasions she saw Jackson with little boys in his bedroom, where he kept a jacuzzi. “Michael would have his underwear floating in the water and the little boys’ underwear floating in the water together,” she said. “If they weren’t floating in the water, they were outside on the floor around the Jacuzzi. So I would find stuff like that.”
“With all the little boys he would hold their hands and kiss them. And they would fight for Michael's love. It was a strange environment to watch.”
The Jackson family disputed all claims against the late icon in Leaving Neverland. “He gave HBO their highest rated special ever,” they said in a statement. “Now, to repay him they give a voice to admitted liars."
Although she doesn't have proof, McManus believes MJ filmed his alleged sexual encounters with young boys.
She claims she knew of hidden VHS tapes in his movie projection room. “I think they were of Michael with boys doing inappropriate things that had to be hidden, or they would have put him in jail. I think they were sex tapes,” she told The Daily Mail. “After watching Michael with the boys and dealing with the way he was and what I saw and then hearing what I heard, I believe it to be true.”
She says she found Vaseline and tampons next to Jackson's bed and scattered around the house and claims the singer had her laminate photos of naked babies to hang in his bedroom.
"There was a lot of Vaseline around Neverland, a lot in Michael’s bedroom," she recalls.
"I didn’t question it, because he was my boss and you just do what you’re supposed to do, but I would wonder."
