Janet Jackson revealed she isn’t worried about her brother Michael Jackson’s legacy after the bombshell sexual abuse allegations.

The HBO documentary “Leaving Neverland” that debuted in January detailed child molestation claims against the pop singer, according to a report published Sunday in The Sunday Times. The Times asked what she thought about Michael’s legacy moving forward.

“It will continue,” Janet told The Sunday Times of London. “I love it when I see kids emulating him, when adults still listen to his music. It just lets you know the impact that my family has had on the world. I hope I’m not sounding arrogant in any way — I’m just stating what is.”

“It’s really all God’s doing, and I’m just thankful for that,” she added. (RELATED: UK Michael Jackson Fans Protest Broadcast Of ‘Leaving Neverland’)

Janet isn’t the first from the family to defend Michael post “Leaving Neverland.”

“This documentary is not telling the truth,” MJ’s brother, Marlon, said in an interview with CBS This Morning at the time. “There has not been not one piece of evidence that corroborates their story.”

Michael’s nephew Taj Jackson even defended the pop singer’s relationship with children.

“…I think, the fault on my uncle was he just, he didn’t have that bone in his body to look at it the other way. And I think that was the thing, is that his naiveté was his downfall in a way,” Taj said.
