“Leaving Neverland” is the heart-wrenching story of two now-adult men who claim they were victims of sexual and psychological abuse as teens by Michael Jackson. Sadly, it’s only one of two such exposés out now. “Surviving R. Kelly” explores similar allegations against former R&B superstar Robert Sylvester Kelly, or R. Kelly. Together, they shed light on a horrible modern reality: children allegedly groomed by their star-struck parents, then handed over to sexual predators.

This story is astonishing for a number of reasons. One, of course, is how Jackson’s two victims reveal in such astonishing detail the abuse and the true magnitude of the emotional injury they suffered at the hands of a man who at the time was a global superstar. People whispered—some even spoke aloud—of Jackson’s odd behavior with young boys. Luring them and their families into his world, then having the parents so willingly release the boys into his inner sanctum.
