His album Number Ones is currently number 33 in the iTunes chart, The Essential Michael Jackson is at 67, Thriller is 109, History at 112 and Bad  is at 142.

The Billie Jean singer faces claims that he groomed young children, even carrying out a fake wedding ceremony with a ten-year-old boy in the HBO doc, which aired on Channel 4 over the last two nights.

The documentary details fresh abuse claims from Wade Robson, a choreographer who says Jackson began abusing him when he was seven, and James Safechuck, a former child actor who says the singer began molesting him when he was 10.

It was so graphic that viewers were forced to switch off the doc, which revealed gruesome accounts from two of Jackson’s alleged victims who are now in their 30s.

But his die-hard fans are insistent they will continue listening to his music.

Discussing it on Twitter one person wrote: “I will still listen to his music regardless it just makes me sad that they have waited until he can’t defend himself and they are going to cash in from this documentary #LeavingNeverland.”

While a second commented: “Leaving Neverland. I still don’t believe anything them two have said. Full of shit they both are. Just in it for the money. I will always listen to Michael Jackson’s music just like I did growing up. Only ones I feel sorry for are his children having it all brought up again.”

And another wrote: “I will still listen to #MichaelJackson i don’t believe the accusations at all. Let him rest in peace ffs.”

Meanwhile, dozens of countries around the world have pulled his songs from the airwaves following the explosive documentary.
