Arnold Klein Claims Partial Credit for 'This Is It'

10/29/2009 9:42 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Arnold Klein claims his medical treatments during the last three months of Michael Jackson's life were partly responsible for "This Is It."



Dr. Klein's rep is responding to the story we broke -- that he's filed a creditor's claim for services he performed on Jackson during the last 3 months of his life. Klein wants $48,522.89 for his services -- 179 procedures.

Dr. Klein's rep says the bills were all "valid medical treatment." The statement goes on ... "As anyone can see from viewing "This Is It," Michael Jackson looked great, and this was due, in part, to Dr. Klein's skill, hard work and dedication."

The statement addresses the weekend charge for medical services, claiming Klein needed to rent a helicopter to get to Jackson.

As we reported, on one Saturday Jackson went to Klein's office and got 4 I.M. Injections for a minor Restylane treatment -- we're told an I.M. Injection is typically a Demerol injection.

In the statement, Klein says he'll donate any money he receives from the estate to a charity that provides assistance to inner city kids with HIV.

Money hungry leach and doing anything for a buck. He needs to a shame of himself. Klein is just famous and money hungry. He lies so much it is just not funny. He neds to be charge in Michael's death right along with Dr. Conrad Murray.

I agree! But it is also making me very, very angry, and I don't get truly angry easily. I'd like to go to LA and !@#$%&* Dr. Klein. It's sad that we have the First Amendment and I have to watch what I say about this pig so that *I* don't get in trouble. Bastard.

Totally agree, Deb, such a shame we can't say what we'd like to do to this swine-faced piece of garbage, but we can sure think it; that does me tons of good visualizing it...:D

Hope you and yours are doing well. I haven't posted since seeing the movie, but I've kept you in my thoughts the whole time..:)

29. Also, Karen Faye deserves more credit for making MJ "look great" than Klein, IMO. You won't ever see her file any claim, I am sure.

30. This is just too crazy...Next we're going to see Conrad Murray suing the estate claiming since he was the one that gave MJ the propfol that killed him and because of that, Mj is now worth millions more than he would have been if he had done the O2 concerts he wants his fair share of the profits!!

Somebody brought that up last night, that since Dr. Murray didn't get paid because Michael didn't sign off on the contract before he (was murdered) died, he could sue the estate for the money. If he is not charged (which he better be or %#*&@!_+ his a$$), technically he could sue for payment of services rendered. Okay I need to go vomit now.

"IM injection" simply means intramuscular injection...it does NOT specify what was injected. CPT codes are used for billing purposes, there is one code for an "IM injection" and then you also use code the medication for two seperate charges. "IM injection" does not necessarily mean Demerol (although in this instance people are believing that's what it was), but it could be any other of a number of medications.

Just thought I put that nugget of info out there.........

MJ looked fab because of Klein, omg the self righteous, ignorant fat pig! The donating the money to charity is damage limitation now because of the bad replies he has had on twitter... @awkmd go tell him what you think, he reads them all and blocks you.. cant block someone who dont follow him though..hah. He is hateful and using MJs name for self promotion, he doesnt need the money at all. He is just a leech on MJs name. Makes my skin crawl the enabling sh*t!!

It is getting harder and harder to figure out who the good guys are and who the bad guys are. Is anyone keeping score? Who's winning?
