Barbra Streisand believes Michael Jackson's accusers but said she partly blames their parents.
The 76-year-old star - who once turned down an offer to collaborate with the late singer - has opened up on the HBO documentary 'Leaving Neverland' in which James Safechuck and Wade Robson claim that Michael sexually abused both of them after befriending them when they were children.
Speaking to The Times, she said: "His sexual needs were his sexual needs, coming from whatever childhood he has or whatever DNA he has.
"You can say "molested", but those children, as you heard say [the grown-up Robson and Safechuck], they were thrilled to be there. They both married and they both have children, so it didn't kill them.
"It's a combination of feelings. I feel bad for the children. I feel bad for him. I blame, I guess, the parents, who would allow their children to sleep with him. Why would Michael need these little children dressed like him and in the shoes and the dancing and the hats?"
