    Michael Jackson’s lawyer claims his appearance in ‘Leaving Neverland’ is deliberately

    "That press conference had nothing to do with his accusers."

    The lawyer who represented Michael Jackson during his 2005 trial for child molestation has hit out at Leaving Neverland, and says the documentary included footage that was taken “out of context.”

    Mark Geragos appears in the controversial documentary during a section of the film that follows archive footage of a news report showing Jackson’s initial arrest in 2003.

    The report immediately cuts to a press conference where Geragos appears to defend Jackson against the claims levelled by Gavin Arvizo – who alleged that he was abused by Jackson at his Neverland home.

    In the clip, Geragos appears to claim that Jackson’s accusers are “seeking money” and says their supporters are “living in their own Neverland.”

    Now, he says the clip was taken out of context.

    As the entire clip shows, his comments were instead referring to Jackson’s lawsuit against Xtrajet – the private jet firm company that was found guilty of secretly filming Geragos and Jackson while they travelled onboard a flight from Las Vegas to Santa Barbara, where Jackson would hand himself into police.

    Responding to a Twitter user who criticised his appearance in the documentary, Geragos said: “That press conference had nothing to do with his accusers. It was specifically directed at the two adult men who wiretapped MJ and were indicted and plead guilty and went to Federal Prison. But thanks for the heads up as maybe now I have a cause of action.”

    The whole press conference can be seen in full below, where Geragos directly addresses the video.

    “Michael Jackson is not going to be abused. Michael Jackson is not going to be slammed, is not going to be a pinata for every person who has financial motives or every person who thinks that they can get – as the lawyer for the charter company said today ‘we had a lottery ticket and we thought that we were going to do something with it”, he says.

    After years of legal wrangling, Geragos eventually reached a settlement for $2.5 million with the owners of the now defunct Xtrajet.

    Hitting out at director Dan Reed, one Twitter user said: “Dan Reed used footage of a lawyer regarding a COMPLETELY DIFFERENT case in order to manipulate his audience to believe it supported his lies about Michael Jackson’s 2005 criminal case. Mark Geragos was giving a press conference regarding Xtrajet’s recording of MJ.”

    Reed is yet to respond, but he has been contacted for comment by NME.

    Meanwhile, Jackson’s fans last week announced their plans to sue Wade Robson and James Safechuck for “sullying” the memory of Michael Jackson, after documenting their claims of sexual abuse against the star in Leaving Neverland."That press conference had nothing to do with his accusers."

    "Because we do not know when we will die, we get to think of life as an inexhaustible well. Yet everything happens a certain number of times, and a very small number, really. How many more times will you remember a certain afternoon of your childhood, some afternoon that is so deeply a part of your being that you can't even concieve of your life without it? Perhaps four or five times more. Perhaps not even that. How many times will you watch the full moon rise? Perhaps twenty. And yet it all seems limitless." - Brandon Lee

    Dan Reed misrepresented Michael Jackson's then lawyer, Mark Geragos in "Leaving Neverland".

    Reed claims Geragos was talking about Michael Jackson's accusers.

    In fact, Geragos was talking about Xtrajet as this discussion on Larry King Live demonstrated:

    Unsurprisingly, Dan Reed caught in another lie......
