Michael Jackson's Doc Sued for Eviction

8/17/2009 2:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson's Doc Sued for EvictionDr. Arnold Klein -- Michael Jackson's doctor for decades -- has been sued for eviction from his Beverly Hills medical offices.

According to the documents, filed August 6 in L.A. County Superior Court, Dr. Klein failed to pay July rent, totaling $28,515.69. The lawsuit alleges the owners of the building gave Klein the first 5 days of August to make good on his rent, but the doc didn't, so the landlord sued for eviction.

But Dr. Klein redeemed himself. The landlord's lawyer told us Dr. Klein paid the back rent on August 10 and the landlord's lawyer will dismiss the case this week.

The L.A. County Coroner has requested files from Dr. Klein on Michael Jackson's treatments at his office.

No word on why the landlord was all business with a long-term client and moved so quickly to file legal papers.

As for Dr. Klein, we left word with his lawyer but so far no comment.

He is'nt getting money from MJ anymore Im sure he paid Kline alot to keep his drugs coming in. Its really a shame doctors give all these drugs out and they die Why so you can be a friend to MJ. What a great friend.I pray the truth comes out.MJ didnt have a chance to get off the kind of drugs he was supplied.

I guess that now he's missing the dough he got for all those frequent visits from Michael.

Well our beloved King of Pop isn't around to keep him in the money. He just used and abused MJ and now he is getting a little taste of how life is without him. Rest in Peace MJ. Love you!

Dr. Kein is a money-grubbing bum who would do anything to MJ for money.
Probably a degenerate gambler.

Really, who sues for being just over a month behind in rent. Besides, the doc payed up days later. I agree with #11Diane, they know this guy is going to wind up in jail and they just want him out. Either that or the building owner is a huge MJ fan.

Sorry, but this is a tempest in a teacup story.

It does give people another opportunity to take shots at Klein.

Right, TMZ?
