Controversial Michael Jackson documentary Leaving Neverland has sparked an investigation by Ofcom over the gruesome descriptions of child sex abuse.
The stomach-churning film aired on Channel 4 last night, with part two due to be screened this evening.
It featured horrific detail of alleged abuse suffered by W ade Robson, 36, and James Safechuck, 40, including masturbation and oral sex.
It left viewers appalled with many insisting they felt physically ill over the claims.
It has now been revealed than many complained to the broadcasting watchdog over the sickening documentary.
There were 31 complaints about the first part of the film and Ofcom confirmed a probe will be carried out.
An Ofcom spokesperson told The Sun Online : “We will assess these complaints before deciding whether or not to investigate.”
The documentary was a difficult watch for viewers at home, with many saying they had to switch off.
The stories of grim sessions with the superstar included James’ harrowing story of being taught to masturbate by Jackson.
He described in intimate detail he was too young to ejaculate properly and his penis swelled up after excessive sexual sessions with the star.
Wade also gave a grim account of the alleged sex sessions with Jackson, describing how he would give his idol oral sex by Jackson chose not to ejaculate in his mouth.
James also gave a shocking account of a fake wedding between him and the star, even showing off the ring he’d been given by the star.
They held hands like a couple, they had a secret code where they’d scratch each others’ palms if they were thinking about sex. James started to think he was gay.
Leaving Neverland’s explosive allegations against the King Of Pop, who died in 2009, sparked outraged among some of Jackson’s most ardent fans.
It led to protests outside Channel 4 this week as Jackson’s loyal followers vented their fury over the decision to screen the movie.
The late singer’s estate has since confirmed plans to sue the documentary makers, and his family condemned the film in a scathing statement, comparing it to a "public lynching".
The Thriller hitmaker was tried on child molestations charges in 2004-2005 – but he was acquitted on every count.
He died in 2009 aged 50.
