Barbra Streisand Clarifies Michael Jackson Comments After Backlash

Barbra Streisand is speaking out to clarifying the remarks she made recently about the allegations against Michael Jackson in the documentary Leaving Neverland.

The legendary actress says she believes what Wade Robson and James Safechuck said in the film, but that “it didn’t kill them.”

In a new statement given to Variety, Barbra said, “To be crystal clear, there is no situation or circumstance where it is OK for the innocence of children to be taken advantage of by anyone. The stories these two young men shared were painful to hear, and I feel nothing but sympathy for them. The single most important role of being a parent is to protect their children. It’s clear that the parents of the two young men were also victimized and seduced by fame and fantasy.”
