Michael Jackson’s eldest son is working up a sweat after the release of a damning new documentary about his famous father. For the first time since the release of the shocking new tell-all Leaving Neverland, Prince Jackson was spotted hitting a gym in Los Angeles Tuesday, March 5.
As Radar readers know, the two-part HBO documentary focuses on a plethora of sexual misconduct allegations levied against the dead pop star.
Even before the documentary premiered, Jackson’s family was in damage control, with his children and relatives lashing out at the scathing story. Check out this RadarOnline.com gallery to learn exactly how family members continue to react to the film.
Prince Jackson, 23, hasn’t made a public comment yet about Leaving Neverland. In fact, he has been hard to find since the documentary premiered.
He was spotted at an L.A. fitness center wearing all black as he worked out on the stair master. Though Prince has been silent, his family members have been speaking out.
Although younger sister Paris has publicly lashed out at Wade Robson and James Safechuck— who both claimed they were sexually molested by Michael in the early 80’s — a source told Radar the starlet doesn’t know what to believe.
“Paris will tell you until the sun doesn’t rise that those men are lying and that her dad is innocent,” a Jackson family insider previously told Radar. “But honestly, anyone who really knows her and knows the situation also knows that she is just as conflicted over this as the rest of the family is.”
Michael’s nephew, Taj, jumped to his uncle’s defense immediately after the doc aired, accusing Robson and Safechuck of making up lies for money.
“My uncle was probably one of the most scrutinized people in the world,” Taj told Good Morning Britain. “From the FBI investigating him for 10 years, to 300 pages of documents, to court cases, to everything else, to wiretapping.”
But Michael’s own ailing mother, Katherine, may be taking the film’s accusations the hardest.
After suffering a debilitating stroke, followed by a near heart attack in January, the 88-year-old mother of 10 has been removed from the Jackson family compound, as her health is “in shambles!”
“Katherine is just as confused as the rest of her family is about all of this,” a source told Radar. “She is even more upset that her children’s efforts to try and stop people from believing these claims has not worked at all.”
