Michael Jackson’s daughter Paris is defending his name after reports claimed he had a secret collection of pornography, including images of animal torture and S&M sex.
On Tuesday, Paris wrote on Twitter, "Unfortunately negativity will always sell. I urge you all to ignore the trash & the parasites who make a career trying to slander my father.”
She added, "The most pure people are always torn down.. It will continue to be proven that my beloved dad has always been and forever will be innocent.”
Michael’s estate also blasted the rumors, saying in a statement to the Los Angeles Times, “Everything in these reports, including what the County of Santa Barbara calls ‘content that appears to be obtained off the Internet or through unknown sources’ is false, no doubt timed to the anniversary of Michael's passing. Those who continue to shamelessly exploit Michael via sleazy internet ‘click bait’ ignore that he was acquitted by a jury in 2005 on every one of the 14 salacious charges brought against him in a failed witch hunt.”
Back in 2003, Michael’s Neverland Ranch was raided, due to sexual abuse allegations against him. During the search of his home, investigators allegedly documented what they found in court papers. An investigator on the cast recently told Radar Online, which has released the alleged docs and photos from the search, “The documents exposed Jackson as a manipulative, drug-and-sex-crazed predator who used blood, gore, sexually explicit images of animal sacrifice and perverse adult sex acts to bend children to his will. He also had disgusting and downright shocking images of child torture, adult and child nudity, female bondage and sadomasochism.”
He went on, "Based on my training, this type of material can be used as part of the ‘grooming' process, by which people (those seeking to molest children) lower the inhibitions of their intended victims and facilitate the molestation of said victims.”
Former Santa Barbara senior assistant district attorney Ron Zonen, who was involved in Michael’s prosecution, added, "A lot of this stuff was used to desensitize the children, and Michael admitted taking one child after another into bed with him for long periods of time. We identified five different boys, who all made allegations of sexual abuse. There’s not much question in my mind that Michael was guilty of child molestation.”
In 2005, Michael was acquitted of child molestation charges, just four years before his shocking death.
