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

grasshoper that TMZ report was OBVIOUSLY not accurate. Because how can those two children NOT resemble Debbie Rowe? Impossible! Paris is actually a Debbie CLONE! lol When I first saw Paris I thought I was seeing a childhood photo of Debbie! Not everything TMZ reports is totally accurate...

These kids look nothing like Klein NOTHING. Michael is the biological father,they are too BROWN to be Klein's. Secondly, just because they don't "LOOK BLACK" doesn't mean Michael isn't the father. Take a look at Donna Summer's children or Ben Harper's family. These kids LOOK WHITE, but their father/mother is BLACK...

Blanket does NOT look like Miko or Marlon! Jesus ! Are you people blind or nuts?????? Or maybe you're crazy secret Miko/Marlon fans who hope to see Blanket being a Brando offspring! LOL! Blanket is actually the kid with the closest resemblance to Michael and migh be definitely be his.

I find it curious that people here are making up stories. Nobody to this day has made any custody claims. People, learn to read, to interpret what is being written without making up your own stories. It is rather psychotic to rant on about something that hasn't even happened.

What is strangest is that some people here are blind to critique--Michael Jackson himself critiqued his father throughout his adult life, avoided his family these past years and chose to spend his life surrounded by people with his best interests at heart. Read about Michael's life, watch his home videos. I have yet to see a recent home video where his family is even present in his home. It is clear that Michael's true family were his friends.

Here is another interesting article on the case:

Grasshopper TMZ is not always right. If he is married to the mother and a sperm doner is involved there is not reason for the adoption process. That is California law.

Why don't you go do a search on it and then come back.

I truly believe Michael is the biological father of those children. They all look like him and klein needs to back the hell off and leave these children alone!! It takes more than just giving sperm to be a daddy! Those children loved their daddy (Michael) and he loved them,he took care of them,fed them,read to them. People close to MJ said he would sit up all nightlong when one of his children were sick he was such a hands on dad!! And Michael married Debbie so legally he is the dad,he signed all the birth certificates. People say look at their skin,eyes,hair that is just ignorant!

Doesn't CA law say that if no one challenges the parents named on the birth certificate of a child after 2 years, those are the parents? Even with a DNA test, what could Klein hope to gain at this point? MJ is the father list on the birth certificate of all 3 kids and no one challenged it.

It isn't just the looks of the kids that people are going by to think Klien is baby daddy.
No one has to look just like their parents.
It's also the other actions and what others have said that know them.

What a great man Michael Jackson was, he loved the world with all his heart, it was an unconditional love and he really wanted to heal it, stop wars and destruction and have people find a common ground in love and goodness and sharing !

People he cared for abused his trust deceived him, his father abused him verbally and physically; and then worst of all the media/press raped and stripped him of his dignity publicly and hounded him mercilessly. And through it all he smiled!

I wonder how many of us would withstand the same introspection into our lives and how we would handle the pain. Before we case stones at MJ maybe we should imagine ourselves in his life and ask ourselves how would we manage it? How would we escape the pain?


Michael, you were too good for this world, for the people here, for the decadence of the community around us. You are finally up with the angels, where you belong, may you RIP ! We will do our best to carry on your love and selflessness and teach it to our little ones.

I don't think to much of Dr. Klien. BUT, if the children are his, I feel as thou he should step in. Yes MJ was the father, but he is gone now. The kid's are getting up their n age, they will want to know their real father. I think Dr.Klien was a big part of the children's lifes. He was with the family on birthday's & Xmas's and just everyday being around during their upbringing. And I believe MJ and Dr. Kien were very close.( Besides cuz of the drug's ) I feel as thou Dr. Klien know's for a fact more thing's that went on in MJ's up bringing and he can't sleep at night knowing he has to do what he can for those kid's.

Dr. Klien is a shady guy, but you can see he think's the world of those kid's. He could care less about the kid's money. Yes donating a sperm does not make you a father, but I feel he was very involved in those children's lifes and MJ was the father. But I say IF he his the father he should do all he can. KJ is almost 80, not much time left. Than what ??? Leave the other greedy Jackson's raise those kid's ? I don't think so.

It is very sad and kindna nut's for everyone involved, especialy those poor kid's that asked for none of this. But in the end MJ was just a little bit out their and was kind of selfish how he went about getting himself some kid's and did not look at the long range or the big picture. If they are Debbie's & Dr. Klien's kid's they both should of fought for custody. Those Kid's were NEVER around that Jackson clan, MJ kept them away from them. And for good reason. I feel if Katherine were to pass, MJ would want Dr. Klien even before Debbie to raise those kid's, if they are his. I have a feeling they are. I saw true love and the best interest's for those kid's in Dr. Klien's eye's. If Klien were to get those kid's I don't believe for a minute he would ever touch a penny of those kid's money to raise them. I see a guy who really loves those kid's, THE ONLY one where I have seen true love for them. The Jackson's are all about the $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ !!

I was talking about the two older ones.

If what is said about the mother of Blanket is true then she doesn't know who the kid is and wouldn't know to later have a claim. Get it now?

If you dont' believe me look up the California laws.

Leave it to Katherine to have someone like Hoefflin to represent her.

I wonder if it is Hofflin feeding her these murder/conspiracy ideas. If so, and she believes him, what does that say about her mental health?
