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

Klein needs to realize you don't get to pick and choose parenting input from a menu - you're either a parent or you're not. If he wants a say in how the children are brought up, he needs to petition the family court with cause (DNA test, maybe? Proof he was named as a godparent? Evidence of why Katherine is unfit and he is fit so that what was expressed in the will should not be honored?) and fight for the children. If he really was the sperm donor and he does not want to claim the children, he has no more rights than any other anonymous donor who might show up 10 years later wanting a say. Say what you will about Katherine, but I would bet she's the only person in the mix who would want the children even if they didn't come attached to money and their father's famous name. Children deserve to be with someone who wants them 100% and not to control them from a convenient distance like little investment projects while someone else does the day-to-day care. I think Klein needs to step up all the way or step off.

MJ WAS A JUNKIE    

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.

PROBLEM 1 IS MICHAEL JACKSON NEVER I REPEAT NEVER ADOPTED THOSE KIDS LIKE HE WAS SUPPOSE TO. MICHAEL JACKSON WAS ADDICTED BEFORE THE DOCTOR CAME IN THE PICTURE. BLANKET'S BIRTH MOTHER IS FROM SAN DIEGO CALIF AND MICHAEL JACKSON IS NOT THE BIOLOGY FATHER. GET IT RIGHT PEOPLE.

If Dr. Klein takes a DNA test and proves he's the father, would the children be cut out of Michael's will? I wish Dr. Klein would just go away and leave well enough alone. The children know Michael as their father and only Michael.

This Dr Klein honestly gives me the creeps, even more so than Dr Murray. I would not be surprised if he was the main Dr Feelgood for Michael, also he looks as if he takes drugs himself as well. I don't understand this guy at all, even if he is the biodad. Weren't these kids in more danger with an unstable drug addicted father than with their clearly more stable grandmother and Aunt Rebbie? As for Debbie Rowe, if these are her biological kids, she is no better. She left her kids in the care of a person who couldn't even take good care of himself and NOW she's so worried about them? I think that the Jackson family don't get fair shake in the media. I also think that it was important to MJ that his kids were close to his family, whereas he really didn't want them around Debbie Rowe at all.

OMG, hopefully this guy will be in jail soon and stop bothering the Jacksons. Even if he was the biological father, he was not the father who has rasied the children from birth. They've got only a few more years till adulthood and I'm sure the Jackson family will continue to raise them as affluent as possible.

The Electric New Paper :
Jackson not his kids' dad, says masseur
THE King of Pop is unlikely to be the father of his three children.
20 July 2009

THE King of Pop is unlikely to be the father of his three children.

Masseur Paul Gohranson, the former lover of DrArnold Klein, Jackson's long-time dermatologist and friend, told US website Radar that Jackson was sterile and Dr Klein donated his own sperm so he could be a father.

He told Radar that Michael became infertile after years of abuse by his father Joe Jackson.

The elder Jackson, 69, allegedly kicked Michael in the testicles on more than one occasion.

Mr Gohranson said: 'He (Jackson) told Dr Klein that he thinks that's where the damage was done because he said his testicles were never the same again. He said it was enlarged and was always painful.

'So that's why he said he donated his sperm because he (Michael) didn't have the ability to even donate sperm, he wasn't producing it anymore.'

When US television talk show host Larry King asked Dr Klein if he was the biological father of Michael's children, he told him: 'I'm not going to answer it the way you want me to answer it.'

When King said: 'Well, you can say no', Dr Klein then said: 'I can say no, then. I will say no if that's what you want to hear.'

Hit in groin

Mr Jackson allegedly beat Michael with a belt when he was a young boy whenever he missed a note or did not practise his lines.

According to his brother Tito, Michael dodged the beatings. But according to Mr Gohranson, Michael allegedly lost the ability to produce sperm after his father hit him in the groin, which happened twice.

Mr Gohranson told Radar: 'I asked Arnold why couldn't Michael Jackson use his own sperm and he said Michael was unable to produce kids, physically.'

Mr Gohranson said Dr Klein, 53, 'despised' Michael's father because Michael told him how he 'underwent a lot of abuse' at his hands.

In several interviews, Michael spoke about the alleged abuse, and added that he would 'regurgitate' with fear of his father.

Mr Gohranson said Dr Klein told him Michael was hit in his private parts twice.

He said: 'Once, when he was very young and Joe (Jackson's father) picked him up by one leg and started hitting him.

' The second time was when he had put out a solo album and it didn't do very well and they had an argument that Michael was losing his voice, losing his looks and was gonna shame the Jackson family.'

Mr Jackson, 79, denied beating his son severely as a child. He said: 'Michael was never beaten as they call it. And everyone spanked their kids when they did wrong. But not beaten.'

***Wouldn't be surprised to learn "Blanket" is the son of MIKO BRANDO, Marlon's son and MJ's long long time friend. Blanket looks just like MIKO***

you're right... now i'd be willing to bet miko is blanket's father.. and i think that the kids look like klein... BUT... what is the sense of surrogates, adoption, giving up parental rights, AND the legal system, etc etc if the biological parents can come back into the child's life whenever they want? (and this usually happens when $$ is involved)... i would think this would give people second thoughts about these methods of having children... some people are just plain greedy

DR. KLEIN IS MOST LIKELY BLANKET'S FATHER
DR. KLEIN IS MOST LIKELY BALANKET'S FATHER
IF HE IS HE WILL PURSUE HIS REQUESTS
IF HE IS, IT SHOULD COME OUT EVENTUALLY , FOR THE CHILD'S SAKE
NEVER MIND, GREEDY AND MANIPULATIVE KATHERINE JACKSON
SHE HAD HER DAUGHTERS GO AND REMOVE EVIDENCE FROM THE HOUSE AFTER MICHAEL DIED
SO IF THEY ARE SCREAMING AND ACCUSING PEOPLE OF HIS DEATH NOW, IT IS TOO LATE
THEY HID EVIDENCE AND STOLE HIS WORK AND JEWELS AND MONEY FOR THEMSELVES
THEY BASICALLY CLEANED UP THE CRIME SCENE AFTER CONRAD MURRAY DID, SO AS TO KEEP POLICE IN THE DARK
SHE EVEN WENT SO FAR AS TO CALL, AND PRETEND SHE DID NOT FIND HIS MONEY
SHE CALLED THE NANNY IN LONDON
WHAT A BITCH AND JERMAINE IS CASHING IN ON MICHAEL AS WELL
ALL OF THEM ARE VULTURES
