Michael Jackson Doc Sues

9/15/2009 3:32 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Arnold Klein has sued Dr. Steven Hoefflin in the Michael Jackson prescription drug saga -- sued him for defamation of character.

Dr. Conrad Murray & Dr. Steven Hoefflin

According to the suit, Dr. Klein claims Dr. Hoefflin told The Sun in the minutes following Jackson's death, "[Dr. Conrad] Murray definitely called Klein because Klein taught him how to administer Propofol ... Murray would have counted on Klein to be the source of Propofol and guide him on its use."

Klein claims Hoefflin's conduct was "willful, fraudulent, malicious, oppressive and reckless" and was done "with the intent to injure and harm Dr. Klein."

UPDATE
: Hoefflin tells TMZ: "They [The Sun] check their facts with an electronic microscope. There is factual evidence that the statements that I made are true. They have in their possession phone records, recordings, documents and other evidence that confirms facts in their stories before they're published."

79. azza; Think to time of Prince's birth, Michael was Kline's Patient and friend, both' before And after.
Michael was not able to reproduce because of damage, that was according to Michael, I dispute the severity of damage, but the result was' Michael admitted not to being biological father or being able to reproduce, people do not lie, about claiming damage to their ability to sex children, but do covet the truth.

Do you have any source/s for that? When-where did Michael say that?

Something finally happening. These two dimwits are going to tell us a lot. They are so egotistical they will brag about what they did. Hoefflin is nuts, so take what comes out of his mouth with a grain of salt.

I read somewhere he was helping Joe & Kate out by doing his own investigation. Why the hell are the LAPD letting this nut have access to anything. They know him, from getting his out of a tree.

Now I understand why Arty was so nervous on LKL. His actions looked like he was on drugs himself.

Go boys, sue each other and anyone else you can think of. How about Myrray, sue him too.

Anyone following this story closely knows that Hoefflin is certifiably insane. He was in the psyc ward last year and is on psychotropic meds himself, and has another defamation suit against him for $100 million dollars brought against him by former associates.

81. 78. Yes, I do agree, the son is absolutely 100% Klein's-compare their photos-that apple does not fall far from the tree. As for this mixed business, any doctor can be a genius and take a little donation from Michael and more of a donation from the main donor and Voila! A more common sense approach would be is that these children have been in the sun this past summer. I always did wonder if Michael really even knew he wasn't the donor and now wonder if Debbie always knew or was she skunked as well? Common sense again says she knew, she always knew. They used Michael as well. That poor man never had a chance at anything, did he? Wasn't his fault. I blame that on his parents for sheltering their kids while they were practicing being Witnesses-it amounts to no real life growing up and being so sheltered from the truth of how the world works. They all grew up ignorant-that does not mean stupid or dumb-they never got a chance to learn how cruel the world really is.

No, No, No, No, No, No, Michael was made a Eunuch by Joe at around ten, all is explained, all, every strangeness...This I have known for a good 30 Years, longer if you count suspected, it has been done through history forever, and it's nip nip, hot bath, walk away. The rarity is at young age, it is a sin against humanity, two side effect's are obesity and sleeplessness, Michael extreme fasted all his life, from childhood he ate one good meal of fried chicken at the end of the month, the reat fruits and vegies.
Michael would have been called a freak' and ignored' if story got out, and reasons the confidentiality agreements that' all had to sign.

"Hoefflin has previously been on the receiving end of serious allegations. In a lawsuit filed in 1996, four of Hoefflin’s administrative and medical staff from his Santa Monica, California-based surgical center sued for sexual harassment. The women claimed the doctor fondled and made disparaging remarks about the genitals of several of his celebrity patients while they were under anesthesia, that he anesthetized patients and then billed them for procedures he didn’t perform, and that he sent some of his favorites home with goodie bags of syringes filled with Demerol. The suit also said that the DEA also investigated Hoefflin—if true, no charges were ever filed—and alleged that Hoefflin “began to exhibit huge character and mood swings because of drug abuse and the effects of his lifestyle choices.”

During our lengthy interview, Hoefflin told me that the case ended with him receiving “a substantial amount of money.” However, court papers filed in a related case maintain the women each received $42,500 in compensation.

And did Hoefflin, Jackson’s first plastic surgeon, ever give Michael Jackson Demerol, or narcotics? “Well, yes, but only in the hospital,” he said, and only after surgeries. He firmly maintained he never overprescribed drugs to Michael Jackson.

As for his recent allegations about McMillan, the attorney for his co-author, Katherine Jackson, Hoefflin upped the ante in his eight-page letter to me, claiming that McMillan “extracted, without approval, $6.5 million to pay himself for apparent fabricated legal billings” and thus “attempting to intimidate me into seclusion.”

The letter also had some direct threats for me, suggesting that I should “stop having telephone conversations or emails with anyone until you hire a good criminal-defense attorney.”

“My investigational (sic) team will use an electron microscope to examine every second and every millimeter of your life,” Hoefflin’s letter continued. “When something tangible, important, involving torts, or criminal activities is found, it will be reported to the authorities investigating you and will then be added to my book."

The book Hoefflin should probably be worried about is the LAPD's. According to an LAPD source familiar with the incidents involving Hoefflin, investigators have taken notice of the plastic surgeon's recent missives, including the comments about McMillan. “Next time he goes off the deep end,” a police source told me, “he won’t be on a 72-hour [psychiatric] hold. We’ll make sure he’s held for a significant period of time.”

Apparently. Hoefflin's "electron microscope" gets around.

This is typical delusional talk from a paranoid schizophrenic who is off his meds.
