Paris Jackson took hold of news that a Twitter account called "Gay Star News" posted an article which claims Paris believes that her father, Michael Jackson, is innocent of the current sexual abuse claims against him which were exposed in the recent HBO documentary.

While she claims she is glad it wasn't a "disgusting and attacking article," she reveals people are reaching in a bit too much, as she hasn't released any statement about it.

"I actually haven’t made any statements yet, especially regarding how it affects my work life. You guys are reaching a bit. At least this wasn’t a disgusting and attacking article though."

She adds that it turns out, people seem to take her life way more seriously than she does herself, asking everyone to calm down.

THE CONTROVERSIAL DOCUMENTARY

The film narrates the troubling story of Jackson molesting little boys for years in his Santa Barbara County ranch, based on the testimonies of Robson, now 36, and Safechuck, now 40.

"Leaving Neverland" was first shown at this year's Sundance Film Festival, where police officers needed to be stationed outside the theater just in case mobs of protesters would show up. The festival also made sure to station healthcare professionals all over the theater in case any member of the audience who was bothered or triggered by what they saw needed to seek help.

It is being aired on HBO and has received criticism from Michael Jackson's estate, who claims the whole ordeal is "tabloid character assassination," and should not be considered a documentary.

"The film takes uncorroborated allegations that supposedly happened 20 years ago and treats them as fact. ... The two accusers testified under oath that these events never occurred."
