Barbra Streisand Believes Michael Jackson Child Molestation Allegations, But Says 'It Didn't Kill Them'

Barbra Streisand is causing controversy with her thoughts on Michael Jackson.

The 76-year-old stage and screen icon opened up in an interview with The Times published on Friday (March 22).

In the interview, Barbra blames the parents of Michael’s accusers Wade Robson and James Safechuck for allowing them to sleep at his home, and says she “absolutely” believes them.

“His sexual needs were his sexual needs, coming from whatever childhood he has or whatever DNA he has,” she went on to say.

“You can say ‘molested,’ but those children, as you heard say [the grown-up Robson and Safechuck], they were thrilled to be there. They both married and they both have children, so it didn’t kill them.”

“It’s a combination of feelings. I feel bad for the children. I feel bad for him. I blame, I guess, the parents, who would allow their children to sleep with him. Why would Michael need these little children dressed like him and in the shoes and the dancing and the hats?”

Michael was accused of molestation by Wade and James in the recently released documentary, Leaving Neverland. His estate is now suing HBO for the film for $100 million, claiming “Michael Jackson is innocent period.”
