Allegations about Michael Jackson sexually assaulting children first surfaced in 1993, and now the issue has been raised again in a new documentary.

Leaving Neverland, which will air on Channel 4 this spring, was screened at the Sundance Festival and shocked audiences with its level of detail on the late singer's alleged behaviour.

Jackson's loyal fans are outraged at the content of the documentary and continue to protest his innocence. But if there is truth in it, can we still justify listening to his music?

John Caddell and Larissa Nolan discussed this in our weekly music slot, and asked whether it's acceptable to separate the art from the artist in such situations.
