Janet Jackson tries to keep a low-profile at JFK airport after the debut of Leaving Neverland on HBO.
The fresh-faced singer tried to go incognito wearing a black knit hat, printed black scarf, black cardigan, and black platform boots. She was clutching her phone and a book upon her arrival.
The damning documentary, Leaving Neverland, debuted on HBO last week and it had people on both sides of the spectrum voicing their opinion on Twitter.
The documentary is about Michael Jackson‘s alleged sexual relationships with then young boys, Wade Robson and James Safechuck, who alleged MJ kept them around for the sole purpose of grooming them to later sexually exploit them.
who would leave a seven – yes 7 – year old boy with a grown man – makes no sense to me as a mom –

Just reluctantly watched the first part of @Channel4 documentary 'Finding Neverland'. Hard to watch as Michael Jackson was one of my idols when I was young…I feel like he has robbed a lot of people of part of their childhood. His music is tainted now. Very sad.

As strong as the opinion about Michael Jackson being a child molester has been, there has been plenty of people who defend the pop star.
15 years of investigations & proven INNOCENT. Now Defaming a man that’s in his grave & not here to defend himself should be criminal. #HBO expose the real cases that go on in Hollywood everyday and leave Michael alone. #LeavingNeverland #MJfam #MJfamUnite #MichaelJackson #Love

Leaving Neverland is a great representation of how film is edited in order to create a particular narrative, this documentary is so incredibly biased. #FindingNeverland

The legacy of the pop icon has come into question with some countries banning his music altogether and the Simpson’s pulling anything Michael related off their streaming services.
Drake has pulled the song Don’t Matter To Me featuring MJ off his set list with many more coming to a decision of whether or not to play Michael’s music.
She has not made a public comment about the film and seems to want to stay as far away as possible.
She recently announced a Las Vegas residency called Metamorphosis that will focus on the complex layers of her life from childhood to now. It is still unknown if her late brother Michael will play any role in her Vegas show since they performed the hit song Scream together.
This will be Janet’s first-ever Las Vegas residency and will feature the 30-year anniversary celebration of Rhythm Nation.
