Corey Feldman says he can "no longer" support Michael Jackson.
A few days ago, Corey Feldman spoke out and said that he didn't believe that Wade Robson and James Safechuck were being truthful. In the past, Safechuck and Robson have both said that Jackson never molested them as children but upon reflection, they now believe that they are victims of abuse. Corey Feldman says that he didn't have a similar experience with Michael Jackson and that he may have misspoken when he first addressed the Leaving Neverland documentary. In a new interview with HLN, the actor claims that he can "no longer" support the King of Pop because of the "horrendous" accusations that are being made against him.

In a passionate response to the doc, Feldman initially said that his story is the same as Safechuck and Robson "up until the sex part." From then on, it was "LALA LAND" instead of Neverland. The actor still maintains the fact that he was never molested by Michael Jackson. However, he has taken a significantly different stance during an appearance on HLN. While he could not find it in himself to watch the second part of the series, he viewed the first and has concluded that he can no longer defend MJ.
"I don’t want to be perceived as I’m here to defend Michael Jackson, because I can no longer do that. I can not in good consciousness defend anyone who’s being accused of such horrendous crimes," said Feldman. "I’m also not here to judge him because again, he did not do those things to me and that was not my experience."
Feldman says that he wishes Jackson were alive so that he could go on trial and defend himself. Obviously though, that's not the case. Watch the interview below.
