Secrets will eat you up

The second part of Leaving Neverland focuses on the first trial and the moment where, normally, Michael Jackson's world should have collapsed. But the big difference Jackson and another pedophile is that Jackson was such a megastar that he had enough money to either pay the best lawyers or give millions to the victims to pay for their silence ($23 million for Jordan Chandler).
What is then extremely interesting is that the two victims talk about becoming adults and are joined in the interviews by their wives. At one point, James explains that "Secrets will eat you up. It sucks life out of you, just deteriorates you from the inside. Like a part of you is dead. It kind of took everything I had to function during the day, to let other people see me as a functioning person. So, it took a lot of effort to... to keep it together. And then, I would go home and be a wreck."
