The Daily Mail reports that a key detail about the Leaving Neverland documentary might have been incorrect.
A story shared by Michael Jackson accuser James Safechuck centered around the Neverland train station. However, a Jackson biographer named Mike Smallcombe pointed out that the dates that Safechuck claims he was abused don't match up with the construction of Neverland train station.
Safechuck claimed he was abused from 1988 to 1992 and Smallcombe pointed out that the station wasn't built until 1993. A Twitter account purportedly belonging to Reed countered that the abuse might have continued beyond the end point stated in the film.
"Yeah there seems to be no doubt about the station date. The date they have wrong is the end of the abuse," the account responded to Smallcombe posting photos of the train station construction permits.
Smallcombe countered that Reed failed to do his due diligence before putting together the documentary.
"Suddenly the end of Safechuck’s abuse was when he was 16/17 rather than 14," he wrote. "It’s a three year discrepancy. Just hold your hands up, don’t change the story. This is what happens when you don’t investigate properly."
