Also suffering a drop in the wake of the controversial documentary's premiere on HBO are on-demand audio and video streams as well as radio airplay.

AceShowbiz - Sales of Michael Jackson's music have declined following the airing of controversial documentary, "Leaving Neverland".

According to The Hollywood Reporter, sales of Jackson's albums and songs – including his solo work, and music with The Jackson 5 and The Jacksons – dropped four per cent in the wake of the premiere of the film on HBO on 3 March.

On-demand audio and video streams also dropped by five per cent, with radio airplay falling to 13 per cent, after several stations around the world dropped Jackson's music from their playlists.

"Leaving Neverland" documents serious allegations from two men, Wade Robson and James Safechuck, who claim Jackson sexually abused them when they were children.

The late popstar's family have defended the star and accused the two men, who previously denied he abused them, of lying about their abuse claims.
