There’s been a lot written, said, tweeted and posted about Michael Jackson since HBO aired its Leaving Neverland documentary. Throughout the documentary, Wade Robson and James Safechuck both laid out their recollections of childhood abuse at the hands of Michael Jackson. Both men offer graphic accounts of sexual harassment and abuse they allegedly endured as children. In response, Jackson’s family and estate have vehemently denied any allegations of inappropriate conduct by the Pop star. The estate has even gone as far as to sue HBO for $100 million. With all of this going on, stars such as Oprah, John Legend T.I. and many more have made their voices heard on this issue. Meanwhile, some, like Drake, have made quieter statements.
According to a report from TMZ, Drake has taken his 2018 duet with Michael Jackson out of his set list. TMZ states, “Drake was performing at Manchester Arena … he started with the same opening and closing songs that he picked for his North America tour, with one big exception … the Jackson track, which he’d performed in the USA throughout 2018.” Drake’s team has yet to comment on the omission publicly. Given that Drake doesn’t do much press, it’s unlikely that he’ll have to directly address the omission in the near future.
