Arnie Klein: I Did Not Betray Michael Jackson

5/3/2010 7:37 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Arnold Klein -- Michael Jackson's long-time best friend and physician -- tells TMZ he did not betray Michael Jackson by claiming to TMZ that MJ had an affair with Klein's office manager ... and he's freaked out that he's getting "a lot of horrible death threats."

Klein and office manager Jason Pfeiffer were featured on "Extra" a few days ago -- during the interview Pfeiffer claimed to have had a romantic relationship with MJ.

Klein called in during TMZ Live last Friday, and said Michael was gay and Jason was "the love of his life."

On Saturday, Klein told TMZ he does not believe he betrayed Jackson because Jackson never tried to hide his sexuality. We called Klein out on his statement, because it seems to us MJ went to extreme lengths to keep his sexuality a secret.

Klein told us Saturday, "Was he gay? Yes." He then went on to say his declaration is meant to shoot down rumors that Jackson was a pedophile. And, Klein says, as far as he knows, Jason's alleged two-month relationship is the only gay relationship Jackson ever had.

Pfeiffer says, "Michael was not ashamed of his sexuality."

Klein and Pfeiffer say they have received numerous "horrible death threats" since their statements became widely public this week. They have both been in touch with the FBI and now say they have bodyguards.

First and most important Mr. Jackson with with the father above. So what different does it make if he were. The only person that Michael has to answer to is his father in Christ so if you people don't have anything else to do is start rumor SHAME ON YOU!!!! Let this man rest in peace, and try not to disgrace his name of cause any hurt to his three young children.

Who know if MJ was really a gay person or not. For the people that judge sexuality: Why hate people that is gay, lebs., trans, and bi. What if the homosexual people started talking about you be straight? What if life was opposite and you was the wrong people". Give everybody a chance, instead of blowing them off and dissing them. For everybody: Don't hate that it could be true and leave Jason alone. Who know if MJ was trying to save his career because people have a problem with how others choose to live their life. MJ would want his death to be peaceful and the life of Jason to be the same, if he was in a relationship with him. For the people who is talking about how Jason look: It shouldn't matter how the person may look. The most important thing is the person inner- self, feelings, and heart. Jason isn't a bad looking guy for your FYI. PEOPLE NEED TO GO GET A LIFE AND KEEP THEIR NOT IMPORTANT OPINIONS OUT.
