His daughter Paris, 20, has kept schtum throughout the most recent allegations, but has now broken her silence on Twitter.

Specifically, she addressed a tweet that falsely reported that Paris had made an official statement about the claims, alleging that she believes her dad “innocent of sex abuse claims”.

“I actually haven’t made any statements yet, especially regarding how it affects my work life," she clarified.

“You guys are reaching a bit. At least this wasn’t a disgusting and attacking article though.

"Y’all take my life more seriously than I do. Calm yo tittaaaaysss.”

Paris has had some success in her career as a model and actress since her father’s death in 2009. And though she hasn’t made any comment on the Leaving Neverland documentary, she has in the past defended her father.

In a documentary with Rolling Stone magazine when she was 17, Paris said that her “dad would cry to [her] at night.”

“Picture your parent crying to you about the world hating him for something he didn’t do,” she told the magazine. “And for me, he was the only thing that mattered. To see my entire world in pain, I started to hate the world because of what they were doing to him. I’m like, ‘How can people be so mean?'"

Some celebs have come out in support of Michael Jackson's music, including Peter Andre who has called the so-called Price of Pop his "favourite artist".
