She also said she would always see Jackson as a magnificent force that influenced her and so many others. The ex-Supreme is credited for discovering Michael Jackson and the Jackson 5 even though some still dispute the fact till date. They went on to be good friends and performed severally before Jackson’s demise in 2009.
This is what’s on my heart this morning. I believe and trust that Michael Jackson was and is A magnificent incredible force to me and to many others.

Since the maiden broadcast of the documentary on HBO featuring two men, James Safechuck and Wade Robson who said they were molested by Jackson as kids, the late singer’s legacy has faced scrutiny. Jackson’s estate has however denied the claims and has sued HBO for $100 million.
Singer, Barbara Streisand, said in a recent interview that she believes both men and has some sympathy for the late Jackson. Her comments attracted some backlash which made her come out to make a clarification.
