Leaving Neverland director Dan Reed hit by death threats from crazed fans after revealing Michael Jackson 'raped kids night after night’

THE man behind the new 'Leaving Neverland' documentary has told how he has been rocked by shocking death threats since revealing the star's outrageous "sex crimes."

Director Dan Reed told how his film has fired-up Jacko fans from around the world since it was first aired at Utah's Sundance Film Festival amid a large police presence.

The Bafta-award winning Brit has been targeted by vicious abuse after his film told how the pop icon "raped kids night after night" while their mum slept nearby.

Deluded Jacko fans from as far afield as China, Taiwan and Singapore have subjected the 54-year-old to a torrent of “really horrible, vicious” abuse via email and social media.

He revealed many wish him dead adding the “disgusting things they want to do" to him "without having seen the film, thinking that it’s going to do Michael Jackson some good if they hurl abuse at me.”

The superstar’s estate has also launched a $100 million (£76m) lawsuit against HBO, which aired the first part of the documentary in America on Sunday night.

The Cambridge University graduate now hopes those to see the film will think twice about the former King of Pop's legacy.

The former BBC producer told the Telegraph: "People will have to listen to his music in the knowledge that he was a prolific child rapist.

"If they’re comfortable doing that, fine. If they’re not, well perhaps listen to something else for a while.”

For the film, Reed and his team spoke to two men- Wade Robson and James Safechuck -to listen to their shocking claims about the King of Pop.

“This is a film about love and the betrayal of love,” Reed told the paper.

"He was raping those children night after night after night in the next room to their mothers. Spending days and nights in little boys’ homes.

"It’s the most appalling depravity covered up by this façade of angelic childlike purity – that lie was staring us all in the face for so many years.”

 * Leaving Neverland will be broadcast on Channel 4 on Wednesday 6 and Thursday 7 March at 9pm.
