The singer Barbra Streisand has apologised after she was criticised for sympathising with Michael Jackson over child abuse accusations against him.

 

Streisand told The Times newspaper that she believed the allegations against the late superstar but said his actions “didn’t kill” the accusers.

 

She later wrote on Instagram that she was “profoundly sorry for any pain or misunderstanding” caused.

 

Jackson’s brothers have denied that the singer sexually abused children.

 

The accusations were made in a new documentary – Finding Neverland – which features testimony from two men, Wade Robson and James Safechuck, who say they were abused hundreds of times by Michael Jackson from the ages of seven and 10.
