Michael Jackson - 'That's How He Peed'

2/9/2010 2:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

It seems Michael Jackson's longtime doctor, Arnold Klein, was telling the truth about Michael's propensity to pee in bottles ... based on the L.A. County Coroner's autopsy report and a strange item found by the foot of the bed.

MIchael Jackson and Arnold Klein

TMZ first published the autopsy findings yesterday. Among the items found in the bedroom where Dr. Conrad Murray was treating Michael Jackson -- "a closed bottle of urine atop a chair."

Back in November, we posted a story about Dr. Arnold Klein, who told us that Michael Jackson had a habit of peeing in cups and other objects, often in front of others.

Dr. Klein told TMZ today Jackson would pee in any object that was available and it all stemmed from necessity. "That's how he peed," Klein said.

Dr. Klein: Click to watchKlein told us when Jackson was 5 years old and on stage, there were often no bathrooms in the immediate vicinity and as a result he would pee in bottles.

Dr. Klein again expressed disdain for Dr. Murray giving Michael Jackson intramuscular injections of Propofol for sleep, calling it "horribly wrong."

They were in it for the money    

At first blush it would appear that Michael was hooked up to an iv bag, but honestly this is NOT the case as Murray said- he once again lied. The iv bag was devoid of any components of the benzo's, the propofol or the lidocaine. What Murray actually did was hook up a feed line between the IV catheter , used a short tube and injected the stuff into Michael as they say intramuscular from a syringe. The iv bag was clear, the long iv line was clear, he used a short line and mainlined it, meaning he did not dilute the stuff. The damn SOAB.

This is to want to discredit the memory of Michael even
Klein should ..... and always behind Scond of absurd excuses
The police should have more regard for Michael and investigate
why this
Urine in a pot, that would be taken to be analyzed
For?
Would they check the level of medication that could appear in
an autopsy?
And Klein is with this story ...... and TMZ course credits that matters ....
IBOPE is, not matter if there are 3 children who will read and be shocked

This is just solid proof that Dr. Murray knew what he was doing, he had mat under the bed and collected the urine in a catheter because he knew that Michael would be "under" for a long time. R.I.P Michael

You know honestly, the fact that you give this SOB Klein any credence is horrible. He's a drug pusher and no friend to anyone. Why would you even tell the world something like this about a patient? Besides, I happen to know of people who are too lazy to make it to bathroom and just pee in a cup or something instead when they are sleeping. And there is a whole lot of assumptions going on here about MJ and I'm sick of it. Show some respect is RIGHT! I don't believe for a minute that just because he peed in a bottle next to his bed (if indeed he did), that he did it in front of people. The guy was easily embarrased for god's sake! Just leave him alone, like his song says. Klein should burn, I hate the guy! He's as bad as Dr. Murray.

Agree - It was obviously attatched to the catheter when he was under propofol.

About anaesthesia -

We do give a fair amount of extra fluid during the surgery, and peeing is pretty common. For long surgeries, urinary catheters are inserted to collect urine. For some big surgeries, we need to keep track of how much urine is produced to know what the patient's fluid status is.

He also had on a condom catheter.....

it would then be leaked into the bottle so when dude was knocked the hell out with major drugs he wouldn't piss his bed.

Not the same peeing into a bottle Klien was talking about.

What a great environment for those children! A nanny raising you cause daddy is tired of you cause he got his "moneys worth". Piss filled bottles, needles everywhere. Yeah they are going to be normal alright, normal if you consider wackos world normal. Cant wait for the interview with them in 15 years, should be interesting to see how the people who bought this "misunderstood" story react.

Who believes this stupid story? Come on, TMZ, I can't believe you would run such a stupid, ignorant story like this! Michael was a private person -- the whole world knows that. He never would have done what Klein is saying! Guess Klein will do anything to get his mug in the news! I am really disappointed with TMZ for putting this story out there about Michael -- you can do a whole lot better than that!

Lots of people pee in bottles. That truck driver next to you on the freeway may be peeing as he passes you. Why MJ peed in a bottle is beyond me because I'm sure he had a bathroom right next to him.
