Paris Jackson Wants "Everyone To Chill Out" About Leaving Neverland Controversy
Michael Jackson's only daughter said it wasn't her "role" to publicly speak out against the documentary that details sexual abuse allegations against her father.
Paris Jackson has talked about her perceived silence regarding the Leaving Neverland documentary, where two men have accused her father of abuse.
She responded to a Twitter follower who observed she had "not really [been] speaking" about the claims made by Wade Robson and James Safechuck.
The 20-year-old said her cousin -- unofficial family spokesperson Taj Jackson -- was doing "a perfect job" speaking out against her father's accusers.
"I support him, but that's not my role," Paris said.
She added she had been trying to "get everyone to chill out and go with the flow, be mellow and think about the bigger picture".
A week earlier, Paris tweeted then deleted her response to alleged reports she was concerned her own career would be affected by the HBO documentary.
“I actually haven’t made any statements yet, especially regarding how it affects my work life. You guys are reaching a bit," she said, according to People.
She went on to share her tranquil approach to the situation, after telling her followers they took her life "more seriously than I do".
Leaving Neverland features explosive allegations from Robson and Safechuck, who claim Jackson sexually molested them as children.
Michael Jackson's estate has filed a lawsuit against Leaving Neverland distributor HBO for $100 million.
The estate claims the network violated a non-disparagement clause from a contract made in 1992, after HBO was given TV rights to a Jackson concert in Bucharest that prevented them from disparaging him in future works.
