Paris Jackson has spoken about the renewed allegations faced by her father, Michael, saying it’s “not her role” to defend him

The “Thriller” singer was recently the subject of Leaving Neverlanda documentary which centres on two men, James Safechuckand Wade Robson, who claim Jackson molested them as children.

The Jackson estate has called the documentary a “public lynching” and are suing HBO – who co-produced the film with Channel 4 – for $100 million. Jackon’s nephew, Taj, has made several public appearances defending the singer.

Paris has since praised Taj and said that it’s “not her role” to defend her father. Responding to a fan on Twitter, she wrote: “There’s nothing I can say that hasn’t already been said in regards to defence. Taj is doing a perfect job on his own and I support him. But that’s not my role.

“I’m just trying to get everyone to chill out and go with the flow, be mellow and think about the bigger picture. That’s me.”

Paris has previously addressed the documentary on social media, writing: “Do you really think that it’s possible to tear his name down? Do you truly believe they stand a chance?”

Since the documentary was broadcast, radio stations around the world have begun dropping Jackson’s music, while The Simpsons producers have removed an episode featuring Jackson from circulation. Read all about the fallout from the film here.
