Jackson Docs Not Cooperating, Coroner Claims

7/10/2009 5:16 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson Docs Not CooperatingLaw enforcement sources tell TMZ two doctors who treated Michael Jackson have not been forthcoming with their medical records.

Sources say Dr. Arnold Klein and Dr. Conrad Murray have not turned over the medical records the L.A. County Coroner's office has requested. We're told both doctors have turned over some records, but the coroner's office has not gotten the complete file from either doctor.

And there's this ... We've learned a driver for Michael Jackson told coroner's officials shortly after Jackson's death that the singer was going to Dr. Klein's office multiple times a week in the months preceding his death and sometimes would spend 3 to 4 hours inside.

The driver told coroner's officials Jackson appeared disoriented when he left Klein's office. This is consistent with what a bodyguard told Santa Barbara County Sheriff's deputies in 2004 ... when Jackson left the offices of Klein and other doctors.

"What kind of parent would settle for money instead of jail if they really believed Michael molested their children? " Perhaps the kind who is being intimidated by Jackson fans/goons? Perhaps the kind that is mindful of the good they can do for their children with that money? And we can also pose questions to MJ. What innocent person wouldn't want to clear his good name? Also, if he was innocent, the settlement would have been much, much smaller than 20 million freaking dollars. That's for sure.

SINCE DR KLEIN WOULD SPEND 3 TO 4 HOURS IN HIS OFFICE WITH MJ, COULD IT BE POSSIBLE THAT MJ AND DR KLEIN HAD A RELATIONSHIP? IS DR. KLEIN GAY? .MAYBE THAT IS WHY HE DONATED SPERM SO MJ COULD RAISE THEIR CHILDREN.......JUST CROSSED MY MIND WHEN I READ THEY SPEND SEVERAL HOURS TOGETHER IN HIS OFFICE.......

For me, what is strange are the conditions.....the child even if MJ dies is still not allowed to reveal the "truth" or he has to pay back some or all of the settlement. (much more detailed than that, just a quick gist of it)

Is the delay in getting doctor's records the reason why we have not heard anything about where MJ is being buried? I suspect it is the reason, along with the fact that they are doing tests on MJ's brain tissue. I believe both Dr. Murray and Dr. Klein are culpable. I wouldn't trust a thing Klein says. The guy is weird. The saddest thing of all is that it seems Michael was never able to surround himself with normal, honest people. That is part of what contributed to his downfall. It seemed there was no one around him stable enough to ground him and keep him stabilized to any degree. We keep hearing about all these people that loved him so much. His family supposedly tried intervention and that may be true. His family was also dysfunctional so I don't believe we'll ever no for sure about that. MJ needed someone that genuinely loved him as a person, not the celebrity. God rest his soul and God Bless those children.

We are all responsible for our health and medications we take. Michael was responsible for Dr shopping anywhere he could get drugs. Michael could not or would not listento friends and family about HIS addictions. HE chose to ignor everyone and keep on using. He used friends and employee's names to try to hide who the drugs were for. Michael was selfish VERY SELFISH--------->as he had beautiful children to take care of. How could a junkie be the best Father ever??
The children became emeshed in the relationship with their Dad. They became the parent looking out for their Dad.

It looks like so many Dr's tried to help Michael by lowering the dose to get him off drugs like Dr. Klein stated. I believe him.
Michael got what Michael wanted and if he didn't he just moved along to another Dr. and cut people out of his life.

The only reason Dr. Klein was even in MJ's life is because Dr. Klein was helping MJ with repairing his face.

To poster #75...I bet it will come out that Dr. Klein was giving Michael Diprivan or Demerol during those 3-4 hour visits and that is why MJ would leave the office woozy. Klein is lying. He will not look anyone or the camera in the eye. He and Murray need to fess up and speak the truth. We will know the answers soon....

These are my thoughts on MJ:
I believe that he in some way, He was inappropriate with somebody's child, somewhere down the line. THERE I SAID IT!~!

Young boys (guys) can be very mature looking and give an air of sexuality in a way that might attract some guys..like Michael Jackson...we call them "pedophiles", but as many straight MEN know, some young girls at 13 years old look 18 or 19, and some young girls at 13 years old LOOK LIKE LITTLE BABIES.....but to touch either would be a crime. Some young boys look HOT, and they're only 12, or 13 years old...the Abercrombie & Fitch ads have pushed that envelope for years....as we've all seen.
As for the Drugs and Pain killers, this is nothing new, but what surprises me is that after being close friends with Elizabeth Taylor and others that have had obvious struggles with substance abuse, that Michael would fall into that trap....?
I think part of this is because he WAS in a lot of pain from all of the many, many surgeries he's endured over the years...You cannot go under the knife that often and NOT be in some sort of pain. A common misconception is that people with $$Money$$ can buy rest, happiness and relaxation...Michael seemed unable to attain any of that. He was a troubled soul. Now whether that was due to his personal pain, or guilt, or loneliness we may or may not ever know....? but the clues to his profound unhappiness is becoming very, very clear...which is WHY most people abuse anything, sex, drugs, alcohol..etc...
Ultimately he will fade into legend, and his children may, or may not develop into healthy, happy adults..one thing for sure is they will be forever scarred by this experience, and the fact that they will be filthy rich young adults won't necessarily help the matter. Maybe Janet, and the rest of the Jackson clan can step-up, and insert some guidance so that they will not make too much of a mess of their own lives as they grow into adulthood.
We can only pray.
I on the other hand feel that ultimately HE WAS A FOOL! WITH ALL THAT FRIGGIN MONEY, HE DIDN'T HAVE TO GO OUT LIKE THIS! THIS IS A BIG, BIG WORLD, WITH LOTS OF PLACES TO ENJOY AND BEING RICH..EVEN SLIGHTLY RICH CAN SHIELD YOU FROM A LOT OF THE THINGS THAT WOULD BOTHER THE REGULAR PEOPLE OF THE WORLD. HE CHOSE TO SELF-MEDICATE, AND HE CHOSE TO MAKE THE WRONG DECISIONS THAT DROVE HIM TO AN EARLY DEATH.!!! AND AN UNNECESSARY ONE AT THAT!
IDIOT!

I GUESS MJ WAS LYING TOO WHEN HE SAID HIS FATHER ABUSED HIM AND HIS BROTHERS HAD GIRLS IN BED WITH THEM IN THE SAME ROOM WHEN MICHAEL WAS A CHILD WHEN THEY TOURED.......CAN'T TRUST THOSE CHILDREN.........



To all you people who keep saying Michael touched those kids...NO he did NOT go get your facts before you open your mouth!! The facts are those lying bastard kids were sick and their parents told them to lie to get money off of Michael yes that did come out and even the cops caught the kids in alot of lies! Funny how noone seems to remember that part!! And i agree i believe those "doctors" killed Michael and they should held accountable for what they did! Because it was MURDER!! Michael did so many wonderful things throughtout his life and helped so many people so when will TMZ start reporting on all the good he did and not let that be forgotten? RIP Michael

Why is it the doctors fault if MJ died of taking too many drugs? Since when is it the doctors fault? MJ was or was susposed to be a grown man, responsible for his children, LOL yeah. So hypocrites, let it go and get yourselves a life outside of blaming somebody else for this poor pathetic mans early death. We are all responsible for whatever we put into our bodies and if we choose to make the decision to take whatever we can get our hands on , then it is only ourselves to be held accountable and sooner or later we all do face consequences.

Sad    

This is what I thought from the beginning, I’m not surprised. All doctors who repeatedly treated MJ with narcotics even though they knew he was addicted are to blame but will they pay for it? Probably not.

Fools Rush In    

Yes, MJ WAS responsible for getting himself treatment and not continuing to use. He was not just some victim, as he often thought himself to be.
That said, doctors that truly suspect their patients need help are obligated to help them as best as they are able to, sometimes that just means refusing treatment to them beyond what the doctor believes is safe for the patient and appropriate for their condition.

Conrad Murray did have an investigation open regarding a death of a patient, but that does happen pretty routinely. Mistakes are made, patients die despite the best efforts of a faultless physician etc. Unless it's gross negligence that shows a pattern of behvior, it's not really pertinent. What else happened at MJs home proceeding, during and after his death we still don't really know, so we can't hang it Murray.

Klein is a diff story, it's starting to become very apparent this guy is lying through his nasty teeth. Like a previous commenter, poohbear, I noted him CONSTANTLY looking to the right while speaking on GMA and LKL.
I am biased against him after what he did to MJs children, giving that damn vague statement of "to the best of my knowledge" crap about his nauseating sperm bank donation. He could have just said he didn't ever give any of that nasty cootie stuff for use to produce a child for MJ and that he doesn't believe that anyone could access it through anonymous donation methods used by sperm banks. Nope, the idiot gives a vague answer and makes us want to puke in our shoes thinking that those beautiful kids might have to further put up with rumor that this vile Jabba The Hut man could have had anything to do with their lives. Even if he did, he should have lied about it, given he lies about so many other things as is evidenced. It just proves the man is an arrogant, self promoting narcissist that he would not at least give those poor little kids a break. They have been through enough.

I hate Arnold Klein.

The blooper made on live TV by reporter at cemetary regarding Betty White' internment at the cemetary. I guess the reporter must be overworked or doesn't know the difference between black or white. Meredith corrected him, so lady like, it was Bette Davis. Media needs to be more careful about reports made public. I watch HLN and CNN everyday and sometime to much information is overly repeated. You have a way of influencing the public opinion.
