Michael Jackson has been dead for nearly a decade now.
But the absence of this iconic singer has not prevented new and VERY disturbing allegations of child abuse from being leveled against the King of Pop.
There's a new documentary coming to HBO that debuted at the Sundance Film Festival last week -- it's titled Leaving Neverland and it focuses on Wade Robson, 36, and James Safechuck 40, both of whom claim Jackson abused them as children.
The film delves deeply into these heinous charges, too.
Such as what?
We've listed many of them below, courtesy of what Robson and Safechuck say in this documentary.
Be warned, however, many of these stories (if true) are legitimately horrifying...
We'll Start with Robson
He was five when he met Jackson after winning a dance contest on the Australian leg of the singer's 1987 Bad tour.
The Misconduct Started Early
Robson claims the abuse started when he was seven years old and Jackson introduced him to pornography and alcohol.
Robson says the artist had a cardboard cut-out of Peter Pan in his bedroom, which he would look at while he masturbated behind him.
Who Was Safechuck?
He was a young actor who was 10 years old when he struck up a friendship with Jackson after starring in a Pepsi commercial alongside the superstar.
A Jarring Confession
Safechuck says he started staying the night in MJ's bed on a frequent basis -- and claims the star told him he had performed oral sex on him while he was asleep.
I Was the First
"He told me I was his first sexual experience," Safechuck says in the film.
We Had Sex Everywhere
Alleging that Jackson introduced him to masturbation, Safechuck said things quickly escalated and the two engaged in sex all over the Neverland Ranch ... including inside the castle, pool, attic and train station.
Secrets of the Ranch
According to Safechuck, the famous Nevada property was outfitted with hidden beds and secret locations - such as a locked, private box with one-way glass in his movie theatre - where the alleged molestations would take place.
Robson said Jackson would call him "Little One" or "Doo Doo," while another alleged victim, Michael Jacobshagen, said he was dubbed "Rubba Rubba" because Jackson would allegedly rub and touch him in bed.
Molestation While Asleep
"When I slept in his bed, we wore just boxer shorts and he would put his arm around me and push his body to my body, like you would with a girlfriend," this Michael told The Mirror, adding: "He would put our bodies on each other and kiss me on the head and cheek. I woke many times and his hands were on me... one hand on the top of my legs and one hand around me."
Why Didn't Robson Go Public Many Years Ago?
Robson - whose 2013 lawsuit against Jackson's estate was denied by a judge on technical reasons - claims Jackson made it clear that if he confided in anyone, he would both be punished severely in some manner.
Didn't Robson Defend Jackson in 2005?
Yes, he claims to have been pressured to testify on the singer's behalf back when another young man accused Jackson of abuse. Robson also defended Jackson in an interview with Access Hollywood three years later.
A Pretend Marriage
Safechuck's alleged relationship with Jackson lasted until he was 14 years old. He says Jackson held a mock wedding ceremony for him, where they exchanged vows and he presented him with a diamond encrusted gold ring.
A Gift for Jacobshagen
Jacobshagen provided the Mirror with this signed page of a book, which he claims Jackson gave to him and which is a copy of "The Boy: A Photographic Essay," a book that contains naked snaps of young boys.
Jacobshagen also says Jackson once stripped down in the jacuzzi with him and that many sex games were played in the hot tub.
When Robson Was 14...
... he claims Jackson tried to have anal sex with him, but it became too painful and he eventually had to throw out the underwear he put on afterward because it got all bloody.
The Singer's Family Responds
In a statement about the documents, the Jacksons have said: "We can't just stand by while this public lynching goes on, and the vulture tweeters and others who never met Michael go after him. Michael is not here to defend himself, otherwise these allegations would not have been made."
More from the Family:
"The creators of this film were not interested in the truth. They never interviewed a single solitary soul who knew Michael except the two perjurers and their families. That is not journalism, and it's not fair, yet the media are perpetuating these stories."
"But the truth is on our side. Go do your research about these opportunists. The facts don't lie, people do. Michael Jackson was and always will be 100% innocent of these false allegations."
