His brothers Tito, Marlon and Jackie and nephew Taj Jackson rejected the film's claims that Jackson abused children during his lifetime.Taj said his uncle's behaviour seemed odd to some, but was "very innocent", adding: "His naivety was his downfall."Marlon said there was "not one piece of evidence" to back up the allegations.None of the family members interviewed has watched the documentary but Marlon said "I trust my attorney".The Jackson estate is also currently suing HBO for $100m (?77m) over Leaving Neverland, which is set to be broadcast on the US network and on Channel 4 next week.They claim the film, which details the singer's alleged sexual abuse of two boys, breaches a non-disparagement clause in an old contract.HBO responded by saying the film's broadcast still go ahead, but now several days earlier than previously agreed - on the 3rd and 4th of March.Follow us on Facebook, on Twitter @BBCNewsEnts, or on Instagram at bbcnewsents.
