Diana Ross has followed Barbra Streisand's lead by defending alleged child abuser Michael Jackson.

Ross, who knew Jackson for over 40 years, took to Twitter to defend him in the wake of the Leaving Neverland documentary.

She said: "Ross said: 'I believe and trust that Michael Jackson was and is A magnificent incredible force to me and to many others. STOP IN THE NAME OF LOVE."

Her comments have already been poorly received by some on the Internet.

Her friend Barbra Streisand clarified her original views on the late 'King Of Pop' with a new statement over the weekend.

But it looks like Ross wants to stay loyal to her former friend.

The icon was credited with discovering the Jackson 5 before she and Michael worked on several projects together.

Ross was named as the next guardian of Jackson's children after his mother in his final will before he died.

The 74-year-old told fans: 'This is what's on my heart this morning' before airing her views on her friend.

The performer did not engage with fans in the post, that drew a mixed reaction of both support and condemnation.

Ross's defense of Jackson comes after Barbara Streisand sparked an angry backlash by saying Jackson's 'sexual needs were his sexual needs' in a bizarre interview with a British newspaper The Times.

She claimed two main subjects of documentary 'Leaving Neverland,' Wade Robson and James Safechuck, 'were thrilled to be there' as children and whatever happened to them 'didn't kill them'.

Streisand, 76, then posted a new comment backtracking on these views.
