Madonna was asked about Leaving Neverland and the sexual abuse allegations against Michael Jackson in an interview with British Vogue. Madonna says that she hasn't seen the documentary yet, but she believes people are innocent until proven guilty because she doesn't have a "lynch-mob mentality." She says that she has had thousands of accusations hurled against her that aren't true, so her attitude when people tell her things about other people is, "can you prove it?" When asked what would be proof of Michael Jackson being guilty, Madonna said that she doesn't know since she hasn't seen the documentary, but she guesses proof would be people recounting actual events. She says she would have to also take into account that people lie and there may be an agenda like money. Madonna also defended Michael Jackson back in 2003 when the documentary "Living With Michael Jackson" where MJ says there is nothing wrong with sharing a bed with kids aired. Madonna said that Martin Bashir had betrayed MJ's friendship, publicly humiliating someone for your own gain will only come back to haunt you, and God will have it's revenge.
