Amid the abuse allegations against the late Michael Jackson after the release of the HBO documentary Leaving Neverland, Diana Ross has now come out to defend her friend.

In the HBO documentary Leaving Neverland, Jackson is accused of molesting Wade Robson and James Safechuck while the two were still children. Diana Ross has now defended Michael Jackson on Twitter Saturday. The family of the 'King of Pop' has also been quite critical of the documentary, and keeps noting that the late Michael Jackson was actually cleared of molestation charges in a 2005 trial.
