In the wake of the HBO’s Michael Jackson documentary ‘Leaving Neverland,’ artists that have worked with Jackson have been asked for their take on the film and what he was like.
Paul McCartney was recently asked about his point of view when it came to knowing and working with Jackson. Sir Paul was quizzed on the subject while on Radio Futuro in Chile.
Honest as always, he discussed Jackson’s ‘dark side’ following the horrific revelations that were exposed by Wade Robson and James Safechuck, the two men that have accused Jackson of molesting them as children.
Sir Paul told the station: “Obviously Michael was a great singer, a great artist, and a great dancer. For years we’ve loved that. Nobody knew about the other side that’s shown in that movie.
When I knew him he was a really nice guy. I didn’t know about the dark side. It makes it very difficult to look back on the memories which were good memories, to think, oh boy, there was other stuff going on.
For me, I’m OK to just stay with the personal memories I had of him. The other side is the other side. I don’t know about that.”
Sir Paul also added that: “I can understand why people are very disappointed in him and angry that he had the dark side.”
