Peter Andre DEFENDS Michael Jackson following sex abuse claims

Part Two of Leaving Neverland airs on Channel 4 tonight (Thursday 7 March) at 9pm.

'In light of what is happening at the moment, SmoothFM is not now playing any Michael Jackson songs, ' local media quoted Nova's programme director Paul Jackson as saying.

On Wednesday, however, Jackson's daughter, Paris Jackson, responded via Twitter to a report in Gay Star News citing TMZ, which claims that she has never watched the disturbing documentary and "firmly believes" her father is innocent of allegations that he was a pedophile who sexually abused the men when they were young boys.

"Michael Jackson isn't now on any MediaWorks Radio stations' playlists", Leon Wratt, the company's director for radio, said in a statement.

At the same time, NZME boss Dean Buchanan said; "Playlists change from week to week and right now Michael Jackson does not feature on them". The company operates 23 radio stations.

In response, Jackson tweeted, "i actually haven't made any statements yet, especially regarding how it affects my work life".

Jackson's estate has denied wrongdoing and filed a $100 million lawsuit against HBO.

But it is far from clear that listeners on digital platforms are abandoning the singer in the same way, and "The Essential Michael Jackson" is still the 65th most downloaded album in Australia.

Sonshine FM was the only Perth-based radio station to say it had pulled Jackson from the airwaves following the release of the Leaving Neverland documentary.

6IX program director Brad Pottinger said: "We are still happy to play Michael Jackson". Other stations in Canada are reported to be monitoring the situation.

Rival broadcaster NZME also will not be playing the late pop star's music.
