Dr. Arnold Klein Won't Give Up

8/6/2009 1:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The judge unceremoniously pulled the plug on Dr. Arnold Klein's attempt to insert himself in the Michael Jackson custody case on Monday ... but last night his lawyer told us the doctor will go back for a second round.

Mark Vincent Kaplan: Click to watch
Klein's lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, told us last night outside Boa Steakhouse in West Hollywood he'll file legal papers on Klein's behalf sometime after the beginning of September.

Last Monday, Kaplan went before the judge and expressed Klein's concerns over parenting issues involving Jackson's three kids. There are reports Dr. Klein could be the biological father, but he's never acknowledged it. The judge checkmated Kaplan, noting that Klein had no legal standing to lodge objections to the custody settlement between Katherine Jackson and Debbie Rowe.

But clearly Kaplan has something up his sleeve ...

Stay tuned

There will definitely be a DNA test, then we'll all know if he's the father. Iit might also be MJ's!

Responding to number 10. It just goes to show you when you don't research and read to find out information for yourself and rely on what the media tells you , you have a tendency to show your ignorance. Because it doesn't matter at this point who the
real father is because Michael's name is on the birth certificate, okay, wacko number 10. Don't believe everything the media tells you. Because they put out a bunch of lies for people like you to believe it and run wiith it. You should really should read and find out what they say about the DA Tom Sneedon in Santa Barbara. The attorney general of California should have his head and disbar Sneedon because he is a disgrace to the legal profession. He's worse than J. Edgar Hoover.

1.They are Michael' offspring they are too dark to be from these fair skinned White/ white people.
2. Michael doesn't need a DNA test to prove to the court that he is the DNA daddy he and Rowe were married, so he is considered the father . Thus the burden of proof lies with Klein on this matter , I don't see the Jackson’s or Debbie freely giving the kids DNA tests well it just doesn't matter to them.
3. Um any ...idiot knows that adopted children have the same rights as birth children that stands even though MJ never adopted these angels he and Debbie knew the children had to be protected so they got married, which automatically made MJ the 'baby daddy' unless someone comes along and gets a court order to have a DNA test. Since Mrs. Jackson will not agree to it Klein will have to take her to court. Any judge will look at what the kids have already gone through and put off any judgment or litigation for at least 6 months.

Why does Dr. Klein want to inject himself into the children's lives? He is not the father, right. Therefore, he has no legal grounds regarding their custody. The children are living with their grandmother and other family members. If he wants to keep in touch with the children, perhaps he should just befriend Mrs. Jackson and the other family members. Or, in the next hearing will his lawyer reveal he is the actual biological father? The lawyer should advise his client - Dr. Klein - to leave the children alone and drop his lawsuit.

Klein has no standing in probate court because Michael is the PRESUMPTIVE FATHER.

Klein may have standing in family court as the PUTATIVE FATHER if he is the biological father.

Since Michael's children are orphaned by their legally presumptive father and their bio mom doesn't want custody, it could open the door to Klein as the putative father if he his proven to be the bio dad.

He could possibly get the family court to order a DNA test to see if he is the bio dad and therefore get standing as the putative father.

Why doesn't everyone calm down a bit? This is a complex matter. Of course Michael Jackson is the real Dad, since that is something emotional, not biological. It seems dr Klein has not tried to influence the children's lives since he MAYBE fathered them, strictly biologically. Now he is afraid Joe Jackson may be too close to them, which is a legitimate concern. Joe has now stated officially that he will not take part in their upbringing - probably in response to Klein's approach.

I don't like they way Klein made money out of MJ:s obsession with changing his face. If Klein was encouraging that or merely trying to mend damages made by other doctors, we don't know. What the friendship (if any) between the two of them was like we don't know either. If Klein wants access to the children for monetary gain or out of concern? - we just can't tell from a distance.

The children have the right to know their biological roots, even though of course nobody except Michael Jackson will be a real Dad to them. Let's not jump to conclusions, let's just hope those three children will somehow have as normal a childhood as possible. They have always been in an unusual and strange environment, but hopefully there will be enough decent good people around them to make them feel all right and able to grow in a healthy way.

TO HELL WITH KLEIN . TO HELL WITH KLEIN. WHY CAN'T YOU ALLOW THOSE CHILDREN TO BE HAPPY. IF YOU LOVE MICHAEL JACKSON SO MUCH AND IF YOU WERE TRULY A GOOD FRIEND, I THINK YOU SHOULD HAVE KEPT YOUR MOUTH SHORT. EVEN IF YOU WERE A SPERM DONOR. TO HELL WITH YOU AND YOUR ADVISERS. THE JACKSON FAMILY IS GOOD FAMILY AND I AM SURE THAT THE KIDS WILL BE LOOKED AFTER PROPERLY. THEY ARE IN SAFE HANDS. SHAME ON THOSE PEOPLE COMING TO CLAIM THOSE KIDS.WHERE WERE YOU ALL WHEN MICHAEL JACKSON WAS STILL ALIVE? TO HELL WITH KLEIN, ROWE AND THOSE DISGUSTING PEOPLE. SHAME ON ALL OF YOU. KATTERINE JACKSON, JANET JACKSON, I LOVE YOU ALL. GOD WILL GIVE YOU THE STRENGTH IN THIS TIME OF GRIEVE. TAKE HEART.

Why are people here making up stories? Nobody has disputed that these are Michael's children. The issue is their well-being and many of his friends have quesitons about the family's ability to care for these children as Michael has wished. There is no other question at hand here. Klein, as many of Michael's other friends are simply concerned for the children and coming forth and voicing these concerns is wonderful given that nobody did this when Joseph beat Michael and the other Jackson kids whilst Katherine stood and looked on. Child welfare is at the center of Klein's petition, nothing else.

FACE THE TRUTH. You definitely need to face the truth which is that neither you nor anyone else posting here knows the truth. You believe what you want to believe, I prefer to take the wait and see attitude, and in the long run it really doesn't concern me (or you) now does it.

Oops gotta go, someone's at the drive-thru. Yes, BK has internet access for it's employees. Betcha didn't know that.

Dr. Klein is a con-artist if anybody in beverlyhills is still going to him I hope he f@cks ya'll up. That probably where Joan Rivers goes with her muppet face talking about people go take a good look in the mirror. Freak!!

1) It's really funny watching these peope just through hoops to say Jackson was never guilty.
If he didn't pay his bills they blame his "people". You would think after 10-20 law suits he would get a clue if he wasn't involved but the point is he was and it was his doing. Are you also saying he was mentally handicapped? Because if he was he sure couldn't have been a good daddy.

2) How can someone say the timing is suspect with Klien. Duh! Jackson just died so there was no reason before hand. Yes, the had an agreement but things change now that the name of the game has changed. No one thought Jackson was going to die before Blanket was 18. Now that he did I think he and Debbie and others should do all they can to be sure the kids aren't left with the crazy Jacko family. Klien doesn't need the money so he isn't after that.
Jackson spent the holidays with Klein and not Katherine Jackson. The kids probably know Klein better then her.


It really is funny watching the crazed fans spin every detail to make their hero look good. He wasn't Peter Pan and he wasn't a vicitm of everyone. Was he ever wronged? Of course he was but he also wronged a lot of people and made a lot of messed up decisions.
