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.

its not about not accepting, its about defending someone who doesnt have a voice anymore, thse are rumours damn it whn are you gonna grow up and understand that you shouldnt believe everything the media says? you gitta be a very naive person to think for one second taht thsi even MIGHT be true. The man is dead and he took his secrets with him and we know he was straight because we respect teh way he lived, and trust him when he saus he wasnt. Mj has ben through alot, he is strong if he was gay i know he wouldnt have been scared to say it, but he said many times he was NOT.

and Grimlit hahaah i agree, it must Arnies lover not mjs hahah

To Paul - No, we would still love MJ if he were gay but he's not because he has said it several times already. We women know this man loves women. And he's also a gentleman.

Why won't people let Michael rest in peace? I don't know if he was gay or not, nor do i care. It's none of my business, but I agree that if he was, there's no way he would have dated that ugly fat slob.
I'm also tired of people saying that Michael isn't the biological father of his kids. I believe that they are. All three of them bear a resemblance to him. In any case, I hope Klein and his gay friend are ****ting their pants because of the death threats. Although why would anyone bother to kill them? They're not worth it.

Why oh Why?    

11 - I fully agree with you, Paul.

It´s horrible to see the so called fans´ outrage, as if Michael would have been some kind of lower human being if being gay!!! I have always admired MJ and I really do not care if he was straight, bisexual or gay. My main concern was just for him to be happy.

I he was gay I think he went through hell as he noticed this wouldn´t be acceptable by his fans (Well, some of them). Listen to "Will you be there": "Seems like everyone has a role for me!"

Poor guy!! Not many loved him for being himself - Michael. Most people "loved" him for being the icon they had created to fulfill their own happiness.

MJ files Mystery of the Moonwalker, has been telling the facts about Michael Jackson's life...[many different views] for months....and now it is "out"...the private investigator in Las Vegas story, is all over the web....and it will probably come out, just like this "gay" information...

To Tell it - You really need to shut the hell up with your ignorance. And his name is Michael Jackson, you ignorant fool! No, I take that back. Why don't you just go to hell!

Hey Tell It, why don't you shut your face? Michael didn't molest anyone, he was found not guilty of those accusations. Whether or not Michael was gay doesn't change the fact that he was a great musician. I hope people talk **** about you when you die.

It's just such a bizarro story. What is Klein trying to hide?

Did he really think this was the man that would make Michael Jackson switch teams over? I mean, wtf? LOL

It doesn't matter if he was gay or not. What matters is that these slimy creeps are making up this crap just to make money or get more fame. Michael wouldn't have touched that fat pig even if he were the last man on earth. Even if he lost both hands.!

Michael Jackson did not lose his right to doctor-patient confidentiality when he died. It continues after death. Unless his estate gave Klein permission to spill the beans about ANYTHING he should lose his license.Since the day Jackson died he has been talking non=stop.I didn't care for Michael Jackson at all, but as a human being, he deserves better than this.

Michael Says I'm Not Gay    

Well, Michael may not have a voice now, but let's see how HE addressed this rumor and many more:

1603 days ago


I'm sure these people are wrong...Michael himself said that he was not why do people still say he is if he's not. To show everybody that he was not, he married twice, so I'm sure he wasn't! I haven't got anything against gay people but come on, if Michael himself said that he's not no one should say he is! If he was I'm sure fans like me would have accepted it after all! And why do they so so after his death after?? Because it obviously is a made up story!!! Please stop all these rumors and let the KING rest in peace!
