On June 21, Radar Online published what appears to be a leaked police report describing disturbing evidence collected at pop star Michael Jackson's house in the middle of his 2003 sex abuse trial. In the wake of this somewhat confusing revelation, a woman who claims to have dated Jackson on and off for 20 years, Shana Mangatal, blasted Radar in a Facebook post defending the late singer.

The post reads:

I wasn't going to comment on this but I've received so many messages from Michael's fans who are upset about the recent allegations being reported about what was found at Neverland. It breaks my heart that this would be reported this week - of all weeks. I gave an interview to Radar Online a few weeks ago on this very topic. It was perhaps one of the only positive MJ stories they've ever printed. I'm happy to have been able to tell them what I witnessed firsthand. I was speaking to Michael nearly every day during the 1993 allegations and also involved during 2003. Nothing illegal was ever said to be found at Neverland- only art books that can be found on Amazon. That is clearly stated in the actual documents that were released. He had art books everywhere, many given to him as gifts. He never threw anything away.Please only believe the facts that are presented to you and not the sensationalized stories attached to them. Some fans attacked me for giving an interview to Radar Online at all, but it's very important that we have some positivity and truthfulness to combat this negative trash. If you care, please read the story below for the reality of those accusations. I could write and talk about this forever but I don't want to take up too much space. If you have any questions about this particular topic, I can answer in the comments below. ‪#‎michaeljackson‬

The collection of evidence collected at Jackson's house is gross, certainly, but apparently not illegal. It includes books that were deemed technically non-pornographic by police but which included pictures of naked children. Most disturbingly, there was a book in which children's faces were "morphed" onto the naked bodies of adults.

The officer in the report says that the books could have been used as part of a "grooming" process, in which the inhibitions of potential child molestation victims are lowered.

There were also many books and magazines featuring adult pornography, and scantily clad photographs of the same children who alleged sexual molestation at the hands of Jackson.

Finally, there were also prescription bottles for the painkiller Percocet and the anti-anxiety drug Xanax. Neither of these are uncommon medications (or uncommonly abused medications). Nevertheless, Radar claims were prescribed to treat sex addiction; it's unclear from the report why they believe this. Xanax would later be one of the drugs that led to the singer's death in 2009.
