Michael Jackson dealt ANOTHER blow as Drake scrubs him from UK tour

MICHAEL Jackson’s legacy has been hit yet again after Drake refused to perform their collab on his new UK tour.

The rapper kicked off his Assassination Vacation Tour in Manchester on Sunday night, wowing the packed arena in the process.

However, despite belting out some of his biggest Drake, 32, didn’t play the 2018 single Don’t Matter to Me.

The decision comes just days after HBO and Channel 4 aired controversial documentary Leaving Neverland.

During the four hour programme Wade Robson and James Safechuck allege MJ groomed and sexually abused them over a ten-year period.

Speaking in the documentary, Robson said: “I was psychologically and emotionally completely unable and unwilling to understand that it was sexual abuse.

“Michael was, yes, an incredibly talented artist with an incredible gift.

“And he was also a paedophile and a child sexual abuser.”

The documentary has polarised the nation, with many super-fans insisting the icon is innocent due to the fact he was acquitted of other sexual assault allegations.

However, others in the music industry have publicly spoken out against the Bad singer.

Australian vocal powerhouse Sia took to Twitter to encourage Wade and James to push on with their quest for justice.

The Chandelier singer continued: “Dear Wade and James, I believe you and I love you.

“Keep going #AfterNeverland @StinsonHunter #leavingneverland.”

Slamming the allegations, Michael Jackson’s estate have called Leaving Neverland a “public lynching” and are seeking to sue HBO for $100 million.

In a statement they said: “Ten years after his passing, there are still those out to profit from his enormous worldwide success and take advantage of his eccentricities.

“Michael is an easy target because he is not here to defend himself, and the law does not protect the deceased from defamation, no matter how extreme the lies are.”
