Michael Jackson's Dad -- 'He Was Not Gay'

5/3/2010 2:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Joe Jackson is pissed at Michael Jackson's former best friend/doctor, Arnold Klein, for telling TMZ MJ was gay and had a relationship with Klein's office manager.


Joe railed at Klein, telling TMZ, "It's not true.  Michael was not gay."

Joe feels Klein has betrayed his son: "He has no respect for Michael ... to say things about him when he's gone is shameful." 

Jason Pfeiffer was on TV last week, claiming he had a sexual relationship with Michael, and Dr. Arnold Klein spoke of walking in on the two men and seeing them with their shirts off.  In the last few days, Dr. Klein has told TMZ Jackson was gay and had no problem with people knowing about it.

Joe Jackson went on, "He's a doctor and knows better than to break his vows against a patient."

You have to be really stupid to think this guy was a normal heterosexual man, With that disgusting and sickening feminine voice he spoke with. I believe 100% that Michael Jackson was a homosexual pedophile.

I think it's simply appalling for anyone to come out and say any of these nasty remarks now that MJ is gone. To me, it doesn't make it believable. Say it while he's amongst the living and give him a chance to defend himself. Just ludicrous!

7. I like the way Joe adds... "He's a doctor and knows better than to break his vows against a patient". He just confirmed MJ was gay.

How stupid are you? What Joe meant was MJ was a patient of kleins and even after death dr's are not supposed to go around blabbing your medical history! which is what klein did from the start! MJ was not gay.

joe may be all the things we all say about him, but I believe he is protecting michael on this one. I think Kline and the other guy are liaring.IF you watch the video of michaels bodyguard last month, they themselves said michael liked women and on several occasions he was making out with a girl in the backseat.WATCH THE VIDEO..................

Thankfully, Mr. Joe Jackson, because something good you should do in the life of your child, at least came out to speak the truth and defend his son, indeed this is the role of good father, defending his son from people who want only money and fame of your child, you did right, because Michael Jackson is not gay!

What is the point discussing this.... It will not give us Michael back.



What he was or did when he was alive is his business. He was a person that most people loved and cared about. What he was and what he did maid him the person we no misses and cry's over... He will never come back to us. Let us keep his memory alive by doing what Michael always did, love and respect each other for what and whom we are...please!

Joe Jackson might not have been the best dad in the world....and I am not a big fan of his because of what Michael has said....however, if he, as a father, wants to defend his son, then LET HIM! Joe is damned if he does and damned if he doesn't -- so let's give Joe the benefit of the doubt this time. Any one of us who is a parent would do the same thing and defend our child. So give Joe a break and maybe a pat on the back for actually being "a dad" to Michael as far as this asanine article is concerned.

Sometimes I really love Joe. He has the right to stick up for his son. And to whoever said that Michael hated Joe. Please! Were you in his head or his heart?! Michael's relationship with his father changed drastically in the last several years. Michael has said in many interviews that Joe has changed so much since his childhood. That he wished Joe would have changed sooner. That he FORGAVE him.



Why is Joe being slandered here rather than the two lardasses spreading lies and the Yellow Journalist on Extra who fed into their wallets and lies?! Where are your priorities?
