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.

Funny thing that Michael can wrap it around him like a cape! $10,000 for that jacket? Arnie Klein got swindled - he likely bought it with the money he overcharged Michael for his procedures. If he gets it back (doubtful) he'll just turn around and sell it cuz Michael wore it. He considers Michael a "friend" and yet whines about a damn green jacket??? Ewwwww, slimeball.

You're not just speechless you're stupid. The jacket the wacko creep is wearing is 5-6 sizes too big for him. It is Kleins jacket. Give it back cheapskates.

What's Klein going to do with it? Sell it that's what. Klein CLAIMS to have been a friend. Yeah right... with a friend like Klein and his ilk, no wonder poor Michael didn't trust anybody.

danger baby: I loved your post. I, too, liked the Michael's changing looks over the years. I thought he was beautiful during all his phases, it's unfortunate he could never find peace in them. Throughout the years, however, his eyes (though sadder and wiser) never changed, the set of his jaw and his poise remained solid. As for his fashion sense, impeccable, elegant and always fresh. What a beautiful man, inside and out. He seemed to have finally come into his own during his final years, what a dreadful shame not to be able to enjoy that comfort.

In a world filled with hate, we must still dare to HOPE. In a world filled with anger, we must still dare to comfort. In a world filled with despair, we must still dare to DREAM. In a world filled with distrust, we must still dare to beLIEve. I LOVE you Michael:):):)

This is off topic. A poster who claimed to have work on the production team of TII said that they used a double for the Smooth Criminal segment, well, I watched TII DVD again tonite, just to have a better look. The guy said that it was MJ singing in front of the wall, but a double in front of the Tower/building. Well, its hard to see the difference. Whatever. On another note, some posters said that AEG never planned to take the show to the UK, but judging from what I saw from the DVD, you know how many people they hired to work on the production, an awful lot of people, just think the # of people on their payroll. I read in the newspaper in Calgary, Canada, that AEG spent some $30 million on the production, I find it hard to believe they would spend so much money, and not to have the intention of bringing the show to London. I still don't buy this conspiracy theory.

Question:
Does anyone know if Mike had a doctor to stay with him before Murray's involvement at Holmby? If so, who?

Right, why doesn't anyone speak about 8-MOP? Beacause pharma-business is the biggest legal business? Pls, Dr Klein, explain us the effects of MOP and PUVA therapy!

@Barbiejean. Dr. Murray was MJ's family doctor in Vegas for 2 or 3 years before he moved to LA in December 2008. On the autopsy report most of the drugs, including one prescribed in December 2008, came from Dr. DEAD himself. So he can't talk his way out of this. He killed MJ because as a doctor KNEW a mix of all those drugs could kill him. He just didn't care. For $ 150 grand he took the risk, because he als knew that if anything went wrong he could say anything he wanted. He was alone with MJ, there were no witnesses an he knew Michael trusted him. Murray is a greedy, calculating man.Just hope the LAPD and the DA do their job and that the "quack" gets the maximum penalty, which IS NOT enough for him, not by a long shot. And that Arnie Klein jacket OMG. I think wearing that jacket was one of MJ's jokes. We all know he was a prankster. If the story is true, they should really hurry and give back the damn thing.
