The HBO documentary Leaving Neverland, featuring two men who accuse deceased icon Michael Jackson of child molestation, has left much of the public divided on the superstar’s guilt or innocence. One of Jackson’s own influencers, Diana Ross, is clearly still in support of her The Wiz co-star and recently referred to him as “a magnificent, incredible force.”

The Spring EBONY cover star took to Twitter this weekend to share her “endless love” for her former Motown labelmate, tweeting, “I believe and trust that Michael Jackson was and is a magnificent incredible force to me and to many others. STOP IN THE NAME OF LOVE.”

The diva’s sentiments echo those of son Evan Ross, who also took to social media in defense of his godfather last week after receiving criticism for posting a video of Jackson with the caption, “So good. Had to post this again!! Love you!”

Ms. Ross, 74, was a longtime friend of Jackson. Check out a clip from 1969’s In the Hollywood Palace special, featuring Ross and the Jackson 5, below.
