A controversial documentary about alleged sexual abuse carried out by Michael Jackson has been criticised by the late singers' nephew.

Speaking to ITV News, Taj Jackson, claimed the two men who are making the allegations against his uncle are lying and are motivated by money. After seeing a clip from the Leaving Neverland, Mr Jackson said he has already "seen a lot of lies" within the opening scenes.

He said: "It's painful because for me I see a lot of holes in that I already want to talk about." Taj added it's been "extremely hard" on Michael Jackson's children especially because they have to go to school. "The truth is no one really gave our family the opportunity to speak out against this until it aired."
