Even though Michael Jackson passed away 10 years, people still talk about him, and sometimes, not in a great sense. A new documentary Leaving Neverland on Michael Jackson's life is causing a wave of outrage and shock online.

The documentary is based on the accounts of Jackson's former protégés Wade Robson and James Safechuck, who claim the singer was engaged in inappropriate behavior with them in childhood.

Jackson's nephew has just spoken against the movie

The King's nephew Taj confessed that Leaving Neverland had caused a lot of fury, sadness, and despair to the family over allegations and lies used in the documentary.

In the candid interview at Good Morning Britain, Taj claimed that his uncle was "probably one of the most scrutinized people in the world." 

45-year-old Taj Jackson could barely hold his tears while talking about how upset the family was over the movie, the made-up story, and social media. 

As an abuse survivor myself, if I for one second thought that my uncle was capable of any of this, I'd probably be the first one screaming about this but he never, never, never was like that. Yes, I do believe that he is 100% innocent.
