Peter Andre appears in Leaving Neverland documentary after defending Michael Jackson

The singer took part in a dancing competition against one of the alleged victims


Peter Andre made a shock appearance in the Leaving Neverland documentary, after he defended Michael Jackson.

The documentary details past allegations of child sexual abuse made against Michael Jackson – focusing on accusations made by Wade Robson and James Safechuck.

In the film, Peter appears in a picture which was taken back in 1987, when he took part and placed second in a dance competition.

Wade Robson actually won the competition at the time, and that’s how he ended up meeting the late singer.

According to The Sun, Peter is the one wearing black trousers, a white shirt, and a red dickie bow in the pic.

Meanwhile, a source said, “Pete was devastated to lose out to Wade.”

“However, he has always supported Michael and loves his music – even though he didn’t win he became close with his family. Peter is always asked what he thinks about it all.”

Peter has always been a huge fan of the late singer, and just last week, he appeared to defend him in his new! magazine column.

He wrote: “There’s a new Michael Jackson documentary on this week and it has caused a lot of controversy about sexual abuse.”

“First and foremost what I will say is we have to rely on the justice system and we mustn’t forget that he was acquitted of not just one, but all child molestation charges during his trial in 2005.”

The singer said it would be “absolutely terrible” if Michael was found guilty, but claimed that his music shouldn’t be punished.

He wrote: “You can’t just stop listening to an artist’s music due to accusations alone.”
