“It’s like a death in the family, you know? It’s sad."

"[James Safechuck] was a great kid and the whole time he was with us – which was the better half of an 18-month tour – I always wondered: ‘What in the world are his parents doing?’, you know?”

"I think that there were a lot of exceptions made because of the damage that [Jackson] … I mean, he didn’t intentionally project it, but it was part of his aura – this almost being untouchable and almost alien-like [figure]."

"I was a peerless person, nobody at my Catholic school even had this much idea of what I was going through and he was the person who had been through the exact same thing and wanted to make sure I wasn't alone," he said.

Having visited Neverland many times with his brother, Kieran felt the need to break his silence.

“The only thing I can say is that I can’t really say anything and the reason for that is I can’t be helpful to anyone. To me, it seems like there’s two sides to this thing," he said in an interview with The Gaurdian this past week.

"And because I can’t be helpful on one side or the other, anything I say and anything that gets put out in print could only hurt somebody and there’s already a lot of really hurt feelings," he explained.

"There are already a lot of people who are in a difficult position and if I contribute in any way, it’s just going to hurt someone because I can’t actually help.”

The two were only married for a little over two years, but those years proved to be significant in the life of Jackson, as he was married to Marie following his first child molestation allegations in 1993.

When Michael and Lisa Marie were interviewed by Diane Sawyer in 1995, they addressed Michael's relationships with young boys.

Lisa Marie defended Michael's friendships, "I've seen this. I've seen it a lot. I've seen kids. I've seen him with children in the last year. "

She continued, “They don’t even let him go to the bathroom without running in there with him."

"When he jumps in the bed, I’m even out. He jumps in there with them.”

When asked if Lisa Marie would let her own son do that she replied confidently that if it were Michael, it would be okay, "“If I didn’t know Michael, no way. But I happen to know who he is and what he is, and I know that he’s not like that. I know that he has a thing for children.”
