"The stories these two young men shared were painful to hear, and I feel nothing but sympathy for them". The single most important role of being a parent is to protect their children.

Streisand also posted an apology to Instagram.

The longtime star went on to claim that the parents, as well as the kids, were seduced by the fantasy surrounding fame and fortune. And in a statement just a few hours afterward, she said her printed words didn't reflect her "true feelings".

Barbra Streisand has released a statement apologising after she made controversial comments about Michael Jackson and the contents of the Leaving Neverland documentary. "I feel deep remorse and I hope that James and Wade know that I truly respect and admire them for speaking their truth".

Ross's defense of Jackson comes after Barbara Streisand sparked an angry backlash by saying Jackson's "sexual needs were his sexual needs" in a weird interview with a British newspaper The Times.

Fellow singer Barbra Streisand recently drew controversy herself when she told The London Times that while she "absolutely" believes Jackson's accusers, they were "thrilled to be there", and that the singer's alleged behaviour "didn't kill them". "STOP IN THE NAME OF LOVE", 74-year-old Ross, who often performed with Jackson in the "80s, tweeted on Saturday, referencing her former band The Supremes" most famous song.

The HBO two-part documentary Leaving Neverland saw Wade Robson and James Safechuck detail years of grooming and abuse they allegedly suffered at Jackson's hands, beginning when they were young boys.
