In 1994, he settled a sexual abuse civil lawsuit concerning another 13 year-old boy. His reputation came under scrutiny again this year because of the Emmy-winning documentary Leaving Neverland in which two men gave emotional accounts of what they said was sexual abuse by the singer in the 1990s when they were boys. Jackson’s family attacked the documentary and his estate denounced it as a rehash of dated and discredited allegations.”
