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.

If this quack can claim royalties for drugging Jackson up and enabling him to create a movie,then I suppose Owsley's estate is owed 100's of millions in back royalties too.

To TMZ: "...we're told an I.M. Injection is typically a Demerol injection."

You must have been told by an idiot. I.M. injections are any injection that is given into the muscle - INTER-MUSCULAR. That's what I.M. stand for. Can Demerol be given IM? Sure! But saying that IM "typically" refers to Demerol is a total misrepresentation of the facts. Indeed, I would say that it is as close to prevarication as you can get without someone calling you a liar.....Wait....Scratch that....YOU ARE LIARS.

TMZ to be Sued by Two Jackson PlayersBy: Roger Friedman // Monday August 3, 2009
Two players in the Michael Jackson saga are getting ready to sue website TMZ. The accusation: that Harvey Levin’s information gatherers obtained a “scoop” from stolen materials found in the files of the Santa Barbara Sheriff’s Department.

Debbie Rowe, the mother of Michael Jackson’s two eldest children, and Marc Schaffel, Jackson’s former business partner, have already had several email exchanges with the TMZ lawyers through their attorney, Howard King.

The issue: a video clip that TMZ posted on July 20th of Rowe from outtakes of an interview Schaffel produced in early 2003.

Among the issues: whether or not TMZ, which has paid for interview materials in the past, bought the clip from the Santa Barbara Sheriff’s Department.

Except of course for the vitiligo, which you can clearly see on the photo.
It seems too much of a coincidence that Michael, who suffered from vitiligo, should have an "adopted" son with the same ailment.
Vitiligo isn´t that common.

I didn't read what you stated in your postings but I do believe the advice he gave to people about fame was sound and the example of Bono was a good one. There are plenty of well adjusted celebrities but they don't make headlines.....And there are plenty of celebrities who get messed up....so good advice is alway appreciated...

TMZ ROCKS ON    

****If it hadn't been for Demerol, Prednisone, Botox and whatever else was
needed Michael Jackson never would have made it as far as he did with
the 02 project. And never looked as good as he did and that wasn't too
good even at that. Are you all so blind to the facts. Has their
cinematographic expertise fooled you that much? To me MJ moved like a
mechanical robot, a wind up stiff legged tin soldier as compared the
healthy MJ of years ago. Let their testimonies keep fooling you,
they're still wanting to pull off their paychecks. None of this hogwash
fools me.

Hi Dani! Thanks for the good thoughts, all is going very well!

We have the First Amendment which gives us freedom of speech. Then we have the Patriot Act, which took it away. ~+*&%$#@*(%$?< a$$hole. LOL, decode that TMZ!

Not necessary it also could be from a vitamin deficiency. I have white spots like that also and the doctor told me it was from a vitamin deficiency.
