Earlier this week, court documents from the 2003 trial of the late Michael Jackson which contained evidence of a large and disturbing child porn collection found in his house were leaked onto the internet by celebrity news sources. The Santa Barbara police department, who had possession of the documents prior to their public release, claimed that though they were unsure of the source of the leak, many of the documents were indeed from Jackson's child molestation trial, though they were combined with unrelated photos from the internet. However, Jackson's daughter Paris, his older brother Jermaine, and representatives of the Jackson estates are calling these claims false and have been actively defending the late singer against the horrific allegations.

Defending the 'beloved' singer

After the story alleging that Jackson possessed massive amounts of photographic, video, and audio child pornography became viral, Paris Jackson took to Twitter to defend her father. "Unfortunately negativity will always sell. I urge you all to ignore the trash & the parasites who make a career trying to slander my father," she wrote. "The most pure people are always torn down.. It will continue to be proven that my beloved dad has always been and forever will be innocent." She subsequently tweeted an old photo of Michael licking his middle finger with the caption, '#mood.' "All available evidence, reports & exhibits shown to jurors in 2005 found him not guilty. Unanimously," added older brother Jermaine Jackson, also via Twitter.

He also asked that the public ignorethe recent accusations and let his brother rest in peace.

A spokesperson for the Jackson estate also refuted the claims, and called the story 'tabloid trash.' Like Paris and Jermaine, they also mentioned Jackson's innocent verdict and that he was not found guilty of any of the 14 charges brought forth against him during the trial.

Jackson's defense attorney called the information 'dated', 'exaggerated' and 'irrelevant,' and added that it all seemed to be an attempt to drum up controversy as the anniversary of Jackson's death approaches. When the story broke earlier this week, a representative from the Santa Barbara police department acknowledged that the content of the leaked information appeared to be copies of court documents interspersed with content found on the internet, inferring that at least some of the information given to news sources was falsified.

Saturday, June 25th, will mark the seventh anniversary of Jackson's death.
