A new documentary is defending Michael Jackson against allegations of child sexual abuse.
“Michael Jackson: Chasing the Truth”, released this week on a number of streaming services, seeks to counter claims made in the recent, explosive documentary “Leaving Neverland”.
The film features interviews with Jackson’s biographer Mike Smallcombe, former bodyguard Matt Fiddes and actor Mark Lester, who claim that the allegations made by Wade Robson and James Safechuck in “Leaving Neverland” were made up for financial gain.
“It’s always financial,” Fiddes says in the doc. “It’s hard to understand how these allegations can be true.”
In a post on Instagram, Fiddes called out Robson and Safechuck, suggesting that they are “hiding behind a rock” after the release of “Chasing the Truth”.

So the “Factual” documentary about the “real” #Michael Jackson is being released around the world right now! Thank you so much for your feedback and kind words! 🙏 So glad it’s exceeded your expectations and I expect Wade and James are hiding behind a rock along with Dan Reed somewhere with embarrassment right now! I would love to invite Wade, James and Dan Reed to come and challenge us on live UK 🇬🇧 TV about the man we knew, our friend @michaeljackson and let’s have @tajjackson with is too and @brandijackson82 and see how they got on! Maybe @piersmorgan too! I may even throw in some free martial arts lessons for Wade, James and Dan Reed if you come over to the UK 😂🥋but I doubt you will face us as we know the truth and your gutless! We don’t need 4 hours of edited footage to show the truth about our friend Michael Jackson and the lies about him. I have had enough of this nonsense. We told the truth in 1 hour! He is not even here to defend himself. You should be ashamed of himself. Thank you to all the fans! And sorry for the wait as everyone involved wanted it to be perfect. I believe this crushes “Leaving Neverland” and I hope stops the documentary winning the nominations for the Emmy awards!! Complete Madness! Thoughts are with Mrs Jackson and the whole Jackson family. They have been through so much including Michael’s children. As Michael used to say to me. “The bigger the star, the bigger the target” and he is still the biggest in death. He was unique and it’s hard to explain who Michael really was unless you knew him. Most genius and gifted people are different. Michael is an easy target as he was so humble! And will always be the greatest entertainer of all time who will all miss so much! Friends stick together. 😉 Love to you all Matt Fiddes #michaeljackson #chasethetruth #factsdontliepeopledo #jackson #jackson5 #leavingneverland #documentary #mattfiddes #thetruth #amazonprime #kingofpop @tajjackson @poppa3t @entertainmeproductions @rmpublicityofficial @tjjackson9 @tarylljackson @brandijackson82 @janetjackson @officialsiggyjackson @jackiejackson5 @thejacksons
