Courteney Cox Is Embarrassed That She Still "Loves" Michael Jackson's Music

The 'Friends' star weighs in on her appreciation for Michael Jackson’s music in light of the child sexual abuse allegations that have been made against him.

Courteney Cox feels embarrassed that she still “loves” Michael Jackson’s music.

The Friends star has confessed to being a fan of Thriller hitmaker's music, but said she doesn’t know whether her taste in records is something she should be open about because of the child abuse allegations that surround the late singer.

Michael who died in 2009 — was accused of a string of child sexual abuse offences, and although he was found not guilty, further allegations came to light in the controversial Leaving Neverland documentary.

When asked by Foy Vance on his Vinyl Supper podcast and video series whether she still listens to the King of Pop, Courteney said: “I love Michael Jackson’s music, and it’s terrible. He’s still on my playlists, and no-one’s saying anything so I’ll just go on with it.”

The 56-year-old actress is torn about her decision to continue supporting his music though, and admitted she “wouldn’t know what to say” if someone questioned her.

She added: “I mean it’s hard because … look, I still have the glove photograph in my kitchen. Luckily, no-one ever says, ‘Is that Michael Jackson’s glove?’, because I’d have to be like ‘… maybe’. I wouldn’t know what to say.”

Leaving Neverland was released in 2019, and features allegations from Wade Robson and James Safechuck, who spent time with Michael when they were children, and claim he sexually abused them.

Wade who testified under oath in Michael's 2005 child sex abuse trial that the musician never abused him claims that he was molested by Michael from the age of seven until 14.

James who previously testified on Michael's behalf when he was accused of sexual abuse in 1993 claimed he was abused from the age of 10 until he reached puberty.

The Michael Jackson estate has hit back at the allegations branding both accusers "perjurers" and "admitted liars".

In his 2005 child molestation trial Michael was acquitted by a jury of all charges. BANG
