This is a little surprising…but not really.
Oprah Winfrey is set to host a Q&A “After Neverland” special with Michael Jackson‘s accusers Wade Robson and James Safechuck after the controversial documentary airs on HBO.
The special will air on HBO as well as OWN on Monday, March 4, immediately following the airing of the second installment of the documentary.
Here’s the scoop via Page Six:
The doc and Robson and Safechuck’s claims have been vigorously denied by members of Jackson’s family.
Reed will join Robson and Safechuck in the Q&A to be recorded Thursday in front of an audience of sexual abuse survivors and those whose lives have been impacted by abuse. The first half of “Leaving Neverland,” which made waves at the Sundance Film Festival last month, debuts March 3 on HBO.
Winfrey’s discussion with the trio will also be made available as part of her “Oprah SuperSoul Conversations” podcast.
Robson and Safechuck maintain they were molested by Jackson after he befriended them at the ages of seven and 10, respectively. The two previously testified in support of Jackson as he battled other molestation accusations. But now the pair are recounting their experiences in graphic detail.
