Michael Jackson’s children, Prince, Paris and Prince Michael Jackson II, known a “Blanket,” are considering filing a lawsuit against alleged sexual abuse victims Wade Robson and James Safechuck.
The potential lawsuit, according to a source close to the family, would be for fraud, emotional distress, slander and misrepresentation, in the aftermath of the explosive documentary Leaving Neverland being aired, reported Page Six.
Prince, Paris and Blanket are not seeking money, but any money awarded would go to charity, the source adds.
Instead, the children want Robson and Safechuck to accept “responsibility” and to give an “apology.”
Robson and Safechuck both appeared in the documentary alleging they were sexually abused by the late singer, who died in 2009. Both men claim they were not paid for their participation in the documentary.
Paris Jackson has been defending her late father on social media, since Leaving Neverland unleashed a torrent of anger across the globe.
When Gay Star News tweeted a story Wednesday saying the model, singer and actress believes her father is innocent of the sex abuse claims, she spoke out.
“I actually haven’t made any statements yet, especially regarding how it affects my work life,” she wrote. “You guys are reaching a bit. At least this wasn’t a disgusting and attacking article though,” she tweeted.
Yet, Paris has also been calming down some of Jackson’s equally-angry defenders. She tweeted that the world tears down “everyone with a good heart” who “tries to make a difference,” adding, “But do you really think that it’s possible to tear his name down? Like do you truly believe they stand a chance? Relax and have peace.”
