PETER Andre is a pop legend famous for his 90s hit Mysterious Girl.
Here’s what you need to know about him and whether he featured in the Michael Jackson Leaving Neverland documentary…
Was Peter Andre in the Michael Jackson Leaving Neverland documentary? And what has he said about the singer?
Yes – he appeared as a young boy in the first part of the shocking documentary.
The Mysterious Girl singer, now 46, is shown in a red bow-tie and hat at a 1987 dance competition in Australia to meet the late King of Pop, who is accused of being a serial paedophile.
Peter confirmed to The Sun that is was indeed him pictured in the dance competition in last night’s episode of the two-part documentary.
An insider told The Sun Online: “Pete was devastated to lose out to Wade.
“However, he has always supported Michael and loves his music – even though he didn’t win he became close with his family.
They added: “Peter is always asked what he thinks about it all.”
He spoke about Leaving Neverland in his New! magazine column – without mentioning the dance competition that brought Wade into Jackson’s seemingly sinister world.
Pete wrote: “There’s a new Michael Jackson documentary on this week and it has caused a lot of controversy about sexual abuse.”
He added: “First and foremost what I will say is we have to rely on the justice system and we mustn’t forget that he was acquitted of not just one, but all child molestation charges during his trial in 2005.”
“You can’t just stop listening to an artist’s music due to accusations alone.”
