AceShowbiz - Michael Jackson's children continue to explore legal options against Wade Robson and James Safechuck, who accuse their father of child molestation in "Leaving Neverland". Words are Prince, Blanket and Paris Jackson are quietly investigating their father's accusers while preparing to file a lawsuit.
According to Page Six, Michael's three kids are looking to find out if Wade and James "were paid, in any capacity, for their participation, and to look for any inconsistencies in their accounts of the alleged abuse." They are also said digging out any information about Wade's Hawaii-based charity.
Wade set up the Robson Family Fund through the Hawaii Community Foundation around the same time the documentary was released. He and his wife Amanda have been accused of capitalizing on the documentary's popularity, as people questioned where donations would go. Wade later changed the name to the Robson Child Abuse Healing and Prevention Fund, as the charity's website explained that funds are required by law to be distributed to 501(c)3 non-profit organizations.
A source close to the Jackson family says Prince, Blanket and Paris are preparing to sue the accusers for fraud, emotional distress, slander and misrepresentation. They are not looking for money, but want Wade and James to accept "responsibility" and give an "apology." They reportedly plan to donate any funds awarded to charity.
A representative for the Jackson kids previously told Page Six about the suspicion regarding Wade's charity, "The three children say that all they want is to preserve their father's musical legacy. They feel that the 'documentary' was one-sided and the two men have made numerous claims that aren't true."
"As for the allegations, they believe that per their own investigation and other news sources, money raised by the two men and maybe others has not gone to a charity or to promote anything positive," the rep added. "They want formal answers on the 'charity' issue of Mr. Robson and his 'donation' and more. They certainly haven't used their new platform and that is the point. The Jacksons use theirs to help others. It's the principle, but it's also possibly illegal and they want answers."
