Arnie Klein in Jacket Flap with Michael Jackson

2/20/2010 10:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Arnold Klein -- Michael Jackson's longtime dermatologist and friend -- has filed a claim against Michael Jackson's estate ... but this time it's not about money -- Arnie wants his jacket back!

Dr. Klein claims Michael borrowed a Gianfranco Ferre green jacket from him several months before he died -- a jacket Klein claims is worth $10,000.

According to the claim, "The jacket has not been returned prior to death and has not been returned after death (although demand has been made)."

Klein is not asking for any money, but wants his threads back.

Klein filed another claim against the Michael Jackson estate back in October -- for $48,522.89 for medical services.

He used to claim he was the Sperm Donor for MJ's kids. Now he put claims on the jacket. As those kids, all 3 of them, look more and more like Michael Jackson's friend and idol, Miko Brando and Marlon Brando, Arnie cant claim to be the Sperm Donor. Their faces all say they are Brando descendants.

They were in it for the money    

Ok so Michael borrowed it, it's not like everyone has esp and knows this jacket is Kliens. So, give him back his jacket, big deal. Big cry baby he is! Its a dated jacket for gods sake,, devalued and faded, but worth something since Michael had it on.

MJ certainly wasn't trying to go unnoticed with that wild get up on. Just the opposite. He was crying out to be noticed by someone, anyone and everyone. He certainly had the hallmarks of a real mental case. As Bugs Bunny would say...What A Maroon!!!

I remember Joseph, and other Jackson family members saying MJ would look in peoples closets and find things that he liked and borrow them. Alot of the time he probley forgot to return them, but lets face it if MJ borrowed it, and you get it back it's worth a fortune. I don't have expensive clothes, but he could have had anything he wanted out of my closet. The black jacket he wore when he first sang Billie Jean was out of his mothers closet. If she got it back she probley treasures it. I don't think money or expensive things was important to MJ, so he didn't understand why it was so important to other people. He just liked what he liked. He wore $7.00 white T shirts. Forever fan

You are so lying, TMZ. How is it half the world are filing claims against Michael. Arnie klown could easily just go and buy another jacket. I thought he said he was devastated when Michael died and sat there for hours and then later couldnt remember which day Michael died exactly. You are sooo so making all of this up.

Arnie Klein is so slimy and shady. He was no friend to Michael, that's for sure. You'd think he'd let the matter of the jacket go at this point. I'm sure he can buy 100 just like it if he so chooses, even if it is worth $10,000. I agree with others that he only wants it back so he can sell it (at 10 times its value) as something that Michael wore.

She probably sold it at an auction. And you must be crazy money was the most important thing in the world to Michael Jackson. He spent 10s of millions a year more than he even made just on stupid needless junk.

I notice Michael has got his specs on there. Should have worn them at the 02 then none of this hoax thing would have happened would it. Now we are wondering who this 02 guy was.

I think Kenny Ortega should file a claim next.
