Michael Jackson to stay in Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

Michael Jackson to stay in Rock and Roll Hall of Fame The late King of Pop has become the subject of allegations in the HBO documentary 'Leaving Neverland', in which James Safechuck and Wade Robson claim that he sexually abused them after befriending them when they were children.

Despite the claims against him, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame has said he won't be kicked out of the history books, and will remain a two-time inductee!

Michael has been inducted into the iconic Hall of Fame twice by a voting body of historians, fellow musicians, and industry professionals: once for his work with the Jackson 5 in 1997, and once for his solo career in 2001.

Hall of Fame bosses told TMZ that the 'Thriller' hitmaker was recognised for musical excellence and talent, and for having a lasting impact on the music industry: which remains the case despite the allegations.

The Hall of Fame also claims none of the 'Billie Jean' singer's memorabilia will be removed from the museum in Ohio.
