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."

0502_klein_jackson_EX
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.

To "Takemetoneverland":
Michael Jackson was indeed a pedophile of young boys.
You mention the straight porn displayed at his last trial. That porn had the fingerprints of the young boys on it. It is extremely common for pedophiles to supply young males with booze and straight porn in order to get them horny and submissive and playing with their pee pee's.
You also mention that MJ was great looking. When was that? As a child he had a very wide and huge nose, loads of acne, and looked like a black cantelope with pearly white teeth and an afro. Then he went for the jheri curls and eyeliner.. and by the time he died, he was severely gaunt, anorexic, had a collapsed nose that was completely fake, grotesque tattooed on lips and eyeliner, bald other than peach fuzz (he wore a wig), and a Kirk Douglas butt crack for a chin. Yeah.. GREAT looking..



MJ was insanely overrated, never grew up (they call that being a moron), a pathological liar who truly belived his own lies and denials, vindictive, evasive, foolish, irresponsible, pedophile... and his act never changed or matured. As he aged, he was like an impersonator of the performer he was when he was younger. And now he's dead and his family of vultures are picking his bones. Good riddance.

How low can someone go to get some fake publicity or money? This is just so damn disgusting!! Hell yeah, you didn't betray him at all. You just decided to slander him now that he's dead and can't say anything!! That's no betrayal. That is far more lower! And this loser you're hiring.. Yeah, now the world knows he's gay. Applause!! But please, LEAVE MICHAEL JACKSON ALONE! Pathetic filthy parasites!

Dr Klein, oh Dr Klein - shut your gob.



As a fan of Michael's I don't care if he was bisexual. I believe he was straight and that's enough for me. The more Klein opens his mouth the worse it will be for him. Michael is dead so what of it?
As a 'friend' as he calls himself he should have some respect. As for this guy who believes he was MJ's lover. If this is the case, where was the bastard that he should die this way. In fact where was the bloody lot of them. They all murders and Dr Murray did the deed.



They need to shut up now because the truth will be revealed.



Many of the people who surrounded themselves with Michael for whatever reason they were there, were not interested in Michael's welfare. If he was in debt, that means they would have been effected as a consequence. I don't believe it is as bad as the media is portraying it to be. There were controllers then and there are controllers now.



RIP Michael Jackson. Justice for MJ.

Doctor Klein: Your “best” friend Michael Jackson happened to write songs about how he hated the tabloid press and that he wanted his privacy. If you get a chance, listen to the lyrics of “Tabloid Junkie” and “Privacy”. Seriously. What friend or lover would record phone conversations of said friend or lover? And what friend or lover would then go to the tabloid press to reveal the recorded phone conversations????? This is what outrages Michael Jackson fans. Not that he is gay or not gay or whatever…!!!!!!!! We are hurt and grieved that people around MJ behave like they have no morals or integrity. People betrayed MJ (and I mean bigtime betrayal) while he was alive and now they are betraying him now that he is gone. We MJ fans love this man deeply. And we notice all the betrayals. The friends that go to the tabloid press and reveal all Jackson’s private matters or make up lies about him to save their own skin… And the ones getting rich bigtime from the name of Michael Jackson today. Just follow the money. (By the way, listen to the lyrics of “Money” while you are at it). Lies, lies, lies while Michael was alive. Now lies, lies, lies now that he is dead. I will take my chances and believe Michael Jackson. With all the technology today, I would not believe you if you produced a sex tape. Because there are so many impersonators too. This is so sad. Can’t your just let up for the sake of his children??? We owe it to this man to defend him even though he is dead, because many of us did not defend him while he was alive, because a lot of us were ignorant of the facts. But we are not ignorant now. As fans we will always love and honor Michael Jackson.

LOL that "porn in order to groom young boys" theory works just great... until you realize most of the porn was stashed far away where none of these kids had even known it existed. The alcohol was locked away, too. I mean actually physically locked away, they had to break into a room in order to get to it. Clearly the deviant mind of a pedophile.



1700 hetero and lesbian porn files found on one of his computer files... none of it could be used, guess why? Because none of it fell into the timeframe that Gavin had been there at. So... Michael was using the porn for his own interests.

EXCUSE ME, Do not try telling me what happened during the trial. If you knew ANYTHING YOU WOULD KNOW THAT THE DA HAD THE CHILD LOOK AT THE MAGAZINES WITHOUT PACKAGING OR GLOVES ON, THAT CRAP WAS THROWN OUT OF COURT. DO NOT WRITE A DIRECT MESSAGE TO ME, ACTING AS THOUGH YOU KNOW MORE THAN I DO, BECAUSE YOU DON'T. You can compare him to ANYTHING YOU WANT, IF THAT MAKES YOU FEEL BETTER. THERE ARE THOUSANDS OF WOMAN IN THIS WORLD WHO THINK MICHAEL IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL MAN ON THIS PLANET, AND NOTHING YOU SAY CAN EVEN PUT A DAMPER ON THAT. MMMM I WANT TO LICK MICHAEL ALL OVER THAT BEAUTIFUL FACE YUUUUMMMYYYYY :-D



No need to be jealous.



HAHAHAHA Michael was an impersonator of himself when he got older?? LMAO Um no sir, you also got that one terribly wrong. No one can compare to Michael Jackson, not then not now. That man is GENIUS. He always has been the best and always will be. He is beautiful in HEART AND SOUL!! Michael, you are so perfect <3



I Mean really, who are you trying to convince? Why do any of the MJ Haters try talking to us Michael Jackson Fans? You CANNOT break our faith in our hero. You cannot make us believe other than what we know. We are not crazy or obsessed. We have been inspired by this man. He gives us messages of LOVE AND FAITH. MESSAGES OF HEALING THE WORLD...YEAH THATS REALLY "MORONIC" isn't it? GET OVER YOURSELF!! You know nothing. You are just one of those losers who sit around talking crap about Michael Jackson for no reason. Just because you have nothing else to do. If you do not like Michael, why do you take the time to comment on articles about him? That is something I will never understand. People like you enjoy spreading hate and I AM SICK AND TIRED OF IT.....

i JUST CAN'T BELIEVE KLEIN IS DOING THIS TO
MICHAEL'S MOTHER AND CHILDREN (he's going to kill Kathrine)



I'M OKAY WITH THE DEATH THREATS FOR THESES TWO PIGS.
BUT , LETS FACE IT, NO ONE WANTS TO GO TO JAIL FOR
S*** LIKE THIS .THE WAY WE CAN REALLY GET TO KLEIN
IS TRHOUGH HIS WALLET, HIS "BUSINESS"
IT MAY BE TIME FOR KLEIN TO RETIRE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



KLEIN is under a lot of pressure to account for time, Michael spent in his office...and I'm sure this is
the story that Klein gave the to investigators to dodge a bullet
I believe Michael is being set-up by these two "Fat Bastards"
Believe me I have no problem with MJ being Bi or gay .
Michael was a very discreet and private man ..
THIS JUST DOESN'T ADD UP !!!!!!!!!!!!!!



SO SUCK ON THAT "ARNOLD KLEIN"

The poles aren't really bringing up the truth. People are saying he betrayed Michael, which means they think he's gay and Klein shouldn't have told people about it. Then again, people don't believe this Jason guy, even if they've just said Michael is gay!?! So if peope think Michael is gay, why do they think Jason is lying?!?
