Dr. Arnold Klein -- one of Michael Jackson's closest friends and longtime doctor -- has filed a creditor's claim against Michael Jackson's estate.
Astonishingly, in the document obtained by TMZ, Klein claims to have performed 179 procedures on the singer in the three months prior to his death.
Klein claims the Jackson estate owes him $48,522.89 for services performed between March 23 2009 through June 22 2009 -- just three days before Jackson's death.
The procedures are listed in the documents as:
- botox under eye
- botox eyes
- I.M. injection
- fine line needl
- acne surgery
- botox forehead
- nutritic lips
Dr. Klein's attorney Bradley Boyer just issued the following statement:
"Any and all treatment Arnold Klein provided to Michael Jackson was reasonable, appropriate, and medically necessary. The document filed today is a normal part of the probate process."
