In a recent interview with the Standard eveningStreisand says she believes "absolutely" that Jackson has sexually abused Wade Robson and James Safechuck, but despite that, she seems to sympathize with the pop star.
"Her sexual needs were her sexual needs, from her childhood or her DNA," she said. "You can say 'molested', but these kids, as you've heard it say [the grown-up Robson and Safechuck]they were delighted to be there. They got married and they both have children, so it did not kill them. "
Streisand adds that she has "a combination of feelings" about the situation and that she blames the parents of Jackson's alleged victims, saying, "I feel bad for the kids." I feel bad for him. I blame him, I guess, the parents, who would allow their children to sleep with him. "

Oh my God no. It's horrible. I feel sick. @Barbra Streisand is my idol and I respect her so much. It breaks my heart that she says that. Because it's such a bad and hurtful thing to say. Ugh. https://t.co/emlO9qAxCW
