Three stations in Canada have already dropped the hit songs 'Beat It', 'Wanna Be Starting Something', 'Thriller' and 'Billie Jean', 

However, spokeswoman Christine Dicaire said the move comes following listener requests to drop his music as opposed to it being an official stance of the radio.

A MediaWorks station in New Zealand has also banned the King of Pop's vast canon of pop hits.

Leon Wratt, one of the company's leading directors, said: "You've got 500 songs on a playlist and you have to make the decisions which 500 are the ones people will want to listen to."

In a series of revelations from James Safechuck and Wade Robson, the documentary's two accusers, they detailed countless times they were abused by the star when visiting his sprawling California ranch.

James Safechuck even said that Michael Jackson married him at 10-years-old in his bedroom and said he had jewelry to prove it.

"I was really into jewelry at that time and he would reward me with jewelry for doing sexual acts to him. He would say that I need to sell him some so I could earn the gift.

"We did this in his bedroom and we filled out some vows, like we would be bonded forever. It felt good. And the ring is nice - it has a row of diamonds, the wedding ring."

Safechuck met the star on the set of a Pepsi commercial in 1987 and was immediately taken in by the star along with his family.

However, he said contact broke off following Jackson's interest in the child actor, Macaulay Culkin.
