I feel bad for the children. I feel bad for him.” Allegations about the late singer have surfaced in the documentary Leaving Neverland, where two men, Wade Robson and James Safechuck, outline the abuse they say they were subjected to.Both Safechuck and Robson allege that Jackson abused them, gaining their families’ trust and manipulating them into keeping their sexual relations secret.Streisand has since posted an apology on social media, saying she is “profoundly sorry for any pain or misunderstanding” she caused by not choosing her words more carefully. last_img read more
