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.

They were in it for the money    

I will give this Dr. credit. He was a major asset to his profession, but now he is just a plain ass. He says he is Michael's friend? At what cost? If I were a Dr. and Michael were my long time patient and close friend, chances are I'd give Michael one heck of a break on procedures as friends do for friends. As for getting a payment for T I I Surely he jests! Between filters and a great makeup person, any flaws Michael may have had would be disguised by them and not by Dr. Happy Pants. I don't know what he is trying to do, but he is outting himself. He does not need the money. Let him take out some dinero and give it to charity himself.

This guy is a Dermatologist, not a plastic surgeon. Getting rid of a few pimples did not make Michael look better. Who'll sue next his plastic surgeon? Oops, let me not give anyone any ideas.

Also, Klein is full of bull. Why bother hiring a lawyer and going through the trouble of sueing if he's just gonna donate the money to charity? The lawyer alone will cost him a pretty penny, and he would lose money, not gain it. Since everyone knows that he's all about making money, he wouldn't donate anything to anyone...unless he's the charity.

Also, Prince DOES NOT look like this man AT ALL!!!

Klein is such a looser and will be losing his license to practice soon. Why doesn't he use restalyne on himself. He sure needs it. His face is as ugly as his greed and the personality he never had. Do some injections around your anus, so your boyfriends can tear you up. LOL

Gypsy,

I respect your opinion but one thing I must say is that MJ was a fifty year old man. I do not think that I could shake my tail feather the same way that I could when I was in my 20's, 30's or even my 40's.

One thing I do agree with you on is that Harvey is a hunk. :)

VIVA CHILE    

The only way that Michael saw fabulous on "This Is It" is simply that he was and always will be fabulous and it has nothing to do with the bastard Dr. Klein.

Arnold Klein just wants money from Michael and not turned to children is desperate now and I'm not surprised that this collusion with the murderer of Conrad Murray

I have seen "This Is It" and Michael Jackson should not die in this way (killed)

JUSTICE FOR MICHAEL PLEASE.


La única manera que Michael se viera fabuloso en "This is it" es simplemente por que el era y será siempre fabuloso y eso no tiene nada que ver con el bastardo del Dr. Klein.

Arnold Klein lo único que quiere es el dinero de Michael como no le resulto con los niños ahora esta desesperado y no me extrañaría que este coludido con el asesino del Conrad Murray

He visto "This is it" y Michael Jackson no debía morir de ese modo (asesinado)

JUSTICIA PARA MICHAEL POR FAVOR.
