I saw his interview where he was asked if he had sex with that boy. He didn’t deny it he just said he would never hurt a child. I am convinced he was one because I have dealt with them. He fits the profile too well. Many of them say exactly that, they would never hurt a child and they think kids ask for it. And no pedophile deserves even the tiniest modicum of respect or consideration IMHO.
I will give him that he was a major talent, as great as the Beetles and Elvis, and I loved Thriller, but that doesn’t excuse what was happening at Never Land.
