Radio stations are quickly dropping Michael Jackson from their rotation after damning documentary Leaving Neverland exposed the King Of Pop's alleged sexual abuse of Wade Robson and James Safechuck.

Three major stations in Montreal are the latest to turn Jackson off, as a result of child-molestation allegations against the late musician that aired Sunday, March 3 and Monday, March 4 in the doc Leaving Neverland.

Among the revelations was Robson’s claim that Jackson tried to have anal sex with him when he was just a pre-teen.

“Michael tried to penetrate me in the anus with his penis,” Robson recalled. “He was trying to for a while. He was able to, but it was really painful. Too painful for me so he stopped. We went back to our regular sexual routine.”

Another bombshell revelation was when Safechuck claimed the two got "married" in a secret bedroom ceremony.

“I was really into jewelry at that time and he would reward me with jewelry for doing sexual acts to him,” he claimed. “He would say that I need to sell him some so I could earn the gift.”

He alleged the mock wedding ceremony took place in Jackson’s bedroom.

“We filled out some vows like we would be bonded forever,” he said. “It felt good. And the ring is nice. It has a row of diamonds. The wedding ring.”

A spokesperson for the radio stations in Canada say an outpouring of listener response and criticism led to the decision.
