Judge Dismisses Lawsuit From Michael Jackson Accuser In 'Leaving Neverland'

A judge has dismissed a lawsuit filed by one of the two men who alleged that Michael Jackson abused them as boys in HBO's controversial documentary Leaving Neverland.

Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Mark Young found that James Safechuck could not sue the two corporations Jackson owned that are named as defendants in the lawsuit, MJJ Productions Inc. and MJJ Ventures Inc.

According to the judge, Safechuck's lawsuit had not demonstrated that he had a relationship with the corporations that would have required them to protect him from Jackson.

"We are pleased that the court dismissed Mr. Safechuck's case by ruling that he had no grounds to pursue such a lawsuit," Jackson estate attorneys Howard Weitzman and Jonathan Steinsapir said in a statement.

This is the second time Safechuck's case, filed in 2013, has been thrown out. A judge had dismissed it in 2017, but an appeals court revived it early this year after California Governor Gavin Newsom signed a new law last year extending the statute of limitations and allowing those who claim they were sexually abused as children to file suits until age 40.

Safechuck and Wade Robson had accused the late pop star of abuse in last year's Leaving Neverland documentary. Safechuck had alleged that Jackson abused him hundreds of times at his homes and on tour in the late 1980s and early 90s.

Miley Cyrus Announces New Album 'Plastic Hearts'

Miley Cyrus took to Instagram on Thursday (October 22) to announce that she will be releasing her new 12-track album, Plastic Hearts, on November 27 via RCA Records.

The record, which is her seventh, is a follow-up to Younger Now, which she released in 2017. It will contain her latest hit "Midnight Sky," and her covers of Blondie's "Heart of Glass" and the Cranberries' "Zombie."

A hand-written message from Miley reads: "If you're reading this. know that I f--king love and appreciate you on the deepest level. I began this album over 2 years ago. Thought I had it all figured out. Not just the record with its songs and sounds but my whole f--king life.

"But no one checks an ego like life itself. Just when I thought the body of work was finished. it was ALL erased. Including most of the musics relevance. Because EVERYTHING had changed. Nature did what I now see as a favor and destroyed what I couldn't let go of for myself. I lost my house in a fire but found myself in its ashes."

She added that her collaborators had most of the music that was burned up in journals and computers filled with songs for the EP series she was working on at the time.

"In triumph and gratitude I present to you my 7th studio record, Plastic Hearts. To be released Nov. 27th 2020. XXMC," she wrote.

Cyrus also unveiled the cover art, which was shot by iconic Rock & Roll photographer Mick Rock.
