Roxanne Pallett, who previously made false allegations on ‘Celebrity Big Brother’, insists Michael Jackson is “innocent” amid new sex abuse claims made in a documentary.
The 36-year-old actress has defended the late King of Pop, who was the subject of a new documentary, ‘Leaving Neverland’, on Channel 4 last night (06.03.19) – which featured allegations from Wade Robson and James Safechuck that the ‘Bad’ hitmaker sexually abused them as children – with the former ‘Emmerdale’ star insisting not everything on TV is “factual”.
Roxanne posted a picture of Michael on her Instagram and wrote:
“Just because you read it in a magazine or see it on the TV screen, don’t make it factual…” (Lyrics:Tabloid Junkie) #michaeljackson #mjinnocent #mjfam (sic)”
A sourced told the Daily Star newspaper:
“Roxy has been an MJ fan since she was little. Her loyalty to the star is admirable given that not many stars want to be vocal with public support on this matter.”
Roxanne’s social media post defending Jackson is her first for months after she previously falsely accused ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ housemate Ryan Thomas of hitting her whilst on the show last year, but she later backtracked on the comments.
She recently admitted she had been spat at by strangers following the ‘CBB’ controversy and was too scared to leave her house.
“I’ve been scared to leave the house, and strangers have shouted and spat at me in the street. I’ve been called evil and toxic from people who don’t know me.
“I’ve changed my email address and phone number and I’ve recently moved house. I was getting messages from people saying they wished I was dead, or that I should kill myself. After a while you begin to believe the things you hear, I’d had enough.”
She also felt “constantly sick” and was put on anti-depressants.
The former ‘Emmerdale’ star added:
“After I left ‘Big Brother’, I was advised to leave the country and get away for my own safety, because the hate was so much. I got threats and everyone I used to have around me had disappeared.
“I felt constantly sick. It’s bad enough when one person berates you but I had thousands. I was put on anti-depressants and anti-anxiety meds immediately, which numbed me but I still felt trapped in confusion and fear.”
