This comes after an American documentary titled Leaving Neverland showed the stories of two men who claim Jackson abused them sexually for years.

Briefly.co.za gathered that Australian Radio Network, ARN, is keeping a close eye on how the public will react to the pop star's music after the documentary has been broadcast.

Jackson's music has almost completely disappeared from New Zealand's airwaves as their two top radio networks, NZME and MediaWorks, pulled his music off the air. MediaWorks also said they follow the public's preferences.

We aren't deciding whether Michael Jackson is guilty of paedophilia, we're just making sure our radio stations are going to play the music people want to hear.

The new documentary features Wade Robson and James Safechuck, who claim they were sexually abused when they were between 7 and 10 years old.

The doccie has re-awakened the sexual abuse allegations against the late star, who had rumours of abuse follow him to his death.

None of the allegations against Jackson could be proven while he was alive.
