Michael Jackson gave a young boy jewellery in exchange for sexual acts, according to new documentary Leaving Neverland.
The “devastating and disturbing” film has been shown at The Sundance Film festival in Utah, America.
It focuses on two men who claim Michael Jackson had abused them as children.
His estate deny the claims saying it’s “an outrageous and pathetic attempt to exploit and cash in” on the singer, who died in 2009.
Wade Robson and James Safechuck say they were aged seven and 10 when the singer befriended them and their families.
Now in their 30s, they claim they were sexually abused by Michael Jackson.
He always denied the allegations when he was alive.
Police raided his Neverland Ranch in California in 2003 while investigating claims he had molested a 13-year-old boy.
The case went to trial and Wade Robson was a main witness for him. He said under oath that the singer never abused him and Michael Jackson was acquitted of all charges in 2005.
