Jackson Doc -- I Gave Michael Demerol

7/9/2009 9:58 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Arnie Klein, Michael Jackson's longtime friend and dermatologist, admits to giving MJ Demerol -- one of the strong painkillers we're told Jackson sought out.

Dr. Arnie Klein: Click to watch
Klein says it was only "on occasion" to sedate him, and when asked about the drug Diprivan -- the brand name for the drug Propofol, which was found in Jackson's house when he died -- Klein said he was aware Michael was using it but warned him of its dangers.

As for fathering Michael's kids, Klein admits to donating sperm once -- to a sperm bank -- not specifically to Jackson. Klein hedged on whether he was the father of Jackson's kids but at one point said he was not.

Klein also strongly intimated he felt Debbie Rowe should get the kids -- because he felt Katherine was too old and Joe was out of it. Interestingly, Klein didn't go to the memorial and as we reported, the Jackson family gave LAPD a list of doctors they were suspicious of -- and Klein was on the list.

quote 66:You are such an enabler Dr. Klein!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If you know Jackson was using a drug that was only found in hospitals why not take it away or do an intervention! You could have prevented a world icon's death!

What crap, it was M.J. who would not let anyone help him, he even shut out his own Family, so blame M.J. for what happen, he asked for the Drugs, he took them, he paid the ultimate price for it ..........He was a DRUG ADDICT...

THE CHILDREN ARE NOT BEING PROPERLY SUPERVISED...PERIOD!    

At first he said he didn't supply michael with the 'heavy' drugs, now he's saying he did, I believe he supplied michael with
profofol, and he's probably the kids fathers.

WHO THE HELL HIS "DRUG DEALING" ASS is TO SAY WHERE THOSE KIDS SHOULD STAY, unless he's the father.

SOME THESE CELEBRITY DOCTORS ARE NOTHING BUT "DRUG DEALERS", SIMPLY PUT, LOCK EM UP.

L.A.P.D. officers have arrested 3 doctors this morning in an early morning sweep. Tune in to www.cowboybillsradio.com for all the latest as this develops. According to sources in the Jackson Camp prescriptions for Jacko included the names of Joe,randy,jermaine,and his children that were fathered by his dermatologist...More as it develops

It is very obvious Arnold Klein particiapated in the destruction of Michael Jackson. Even after the passing of MJ, he is admitting to plotting with Debbie Rowe to taking the kids away from the Jackson family. Disgusting. In any case, MJ died long time ago when he first associated with blood suckers like this Klein and allowed this "inventor" of sleezy surgery to mutilate his face. The fact that Michael Jackson raised the Jewish children of Klein and Rowe is very repulsive. Now, I know why Joe Jackson, the father of MJ, is very very angry. MJ died long time ago -- when he assocaited with some ugly users like Arnold Klein and that ugly cow Debbie Rowe. These leeches sucked MJ's blood while alive and, now, after his passing, they are coming back for an encore to clean house and take the money that MJ is making dead. Disgusting. But, then again, what is new? Haven't they sucked the economy of the United States dry? These blood sucking leeches !! Poor Michael, he should have never left the herd ! He would have had a better chance of survival !!

Yes I know his brain was removed at autopsy. But I was merely commenting on the manner in which it was reported here. I cannot imagine that type of insensitive headline appearing for anyone else. Some things are better left unsaid. Why can't they give the same level of respect to MJ as they would with any other member of society. One reason I guess - that MJ headlines (alive or dead) sadly sell papers.

What a low life piece of work. This sumbag should be stripped of his license and jailed--him and his ugly azz breeding mate. They sold their sperm and children and watched somebody else raise the kids and now want them back for another payday. What trash. And this is just one of the opening acts. I'm stocking up on popcorn, because this MJ thing is going to be one of the greatest circus events of the century.

If this guy drops a bomb admitting Michael never had Vitiligo, I'm sure many MJ worshippers will want to have his head. Somebody white donated the sperm for the oldest. I think maybe even the two younger ones. None of those kids are Michael's biological because he wanted light complexed children hopefully with blue eyes. I think there's a reason the oldest child didn't speak at the memorial. It must be messed up and he's probably confused being raised by a father who acted more like a disturbed female child. As for Paris, Michael Jackson may have been more like a big sister to her that's why she came out normal. But Prince and Blanket are the two children people are most worried about the most,. Everybody knows Michael's type.

How about locking up the DRUG ADDICTS like M.J. was, to get them clean?Why are you all blaming only the DR's? M.J. asked and received then took those, blame him, blame the user, blame the DRUG ADDICT, blame M.J.

There is no such thing as reality tv    

This guy looks and sounds like a used car dealer more than a doctor. He is also dumb. I don't care for the Jacksons, but I am glad that they have had the guts and sense to give these doctors names to law enforcement. At least they did not deny that Michael had a drug problem and they are trying to have these doctors pay for their crimes.
