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."

Its a little late Joe. Michael isn't here to sick up for himself.
But your heart(oh i mean wallet) is in the right place.
Why doesn't any other family members come forward to help Mikes name.

Come on!! MJ was not capable of having sexual preferences, at all!! With all that drug he was taking, antidrepression medication, etc... etc... he 'for sure' could not 'perform' even if threatened!! He was just an asexual person... and that is not so absurd to believe... come on people! Just give the guy a break! His father is not an angel, we all know that, but he is not so wrong here when he says that MJ was not guy. MJ was just an asexual person. That is all.

Interesting choice of word, #38, referring to Klein's patients as customers. You really nailed it on the head.

so which is it, Joe, 1) Michael was not gay or 2) Klein is "breaking his vows" to talk about Michael?

Ricky Martin was bi-sexual and he is still confused. Once you were sexual attractive to both sexes you are bi-sexual not Gay. I believe Michael was straight but did have an identity crisis. That does not make you gay. Arnie Klein is trash and why would Michael want such a fat f**k for a 'boyfriend'. I wish these women Michael was with in the past will speak up. The only one who admitted to a love affair with Michael is Theresa Gonzalez. Tatiana Yvonne and Michael had a relationship but it was never sexual because his people got rid of her before anything could happen.

74. Joe may be a liar, and he may have abused michael. But MJ is gone, and now Joe is protecting his son. like he should have before. MJ was NOT gay, if he had no problem with it, he would have announced it to the world. While MJ's music director was on the george lopez show george said "You saw everyday a side of michael jackson we dont know about.." His music director said. "yeah i know what you're talking about i hope i dont get in trouble for this.. one time we were working on the stage, it was dirt diana. and we had a bed, and we had a aerialist. and she was doing a pretty much a pole dance but it was rated PG, and so im asking him. i said "mj so where you gonna be on the stage on this? and he says to me, and looks at me when the girl is in the bed he says 'where you think imma be? imma be in the bed with the girl. why would you ask me that question?' so we have our wonderful femal guitarist oriantha is her name so i said, 'wheres ori gonna be to?' he looks he says 'she gonna be in the bed with me to!' then he looks back at me and says 'bearden. i can handle it to..' so thats MJ for ya" <-- thats all what his music director said, who was with him everyday. MJ was giving his fan a hug she said "Michael can i give you a hug?" he replied in a low mumble but you could hear it "ill give you more than a hug" Lisa marie presely says MJ was fantastic in bed. now im sure he was, but lisa is iffy on if i wanna believe her. But im for certain he was perfect... MJ WAS NOT GAY

I'm so glad you posted this!! Michael was no where near gay! He loved women that's as plain as day. People that refuse to look at the facts and only go by clothing preferences and makeup to cover up a skin disease that was PROVEN in the autopsy, can sit and spin. The only thing that is obvious here is that your a hater. You enjoy hating on other people and your lazy and cant fathom doing your own research into a matter and have to rely on getting your "facts" from such a place as Extra who employs Yellow Journalists and interviews washed up "doctors" who can't even make eye contact with the interviewer when answering questions. LOL @ you guys.

I DON'T CARE if MJ was gay, bisexual, asexual or straight. I DON'T CARE if MJ was black or white. I DON'T CARE how many plastic surgeries MJ had, it was his body. His face. His right. I DON'T CARE if MJ bleached his skin. He could have died it pink or purple for all I care. I DON'T CARE about any of these things. WHAT I DO CARE ABOUT is that MJ needed help and he didn't get it. WHAT I DO CARE ABOUT is that MJ was a very kind and loving soul who gave MILLIONS OF HIS OWN MONEY to multiple charities around the world. How much have any of you MJ haters done or given for/to charity? MJ loved all people of all races. THIS MAN DESERVES SOME KINDNESS, LOVE AND RESPECT IN RETURN. GOD HELP US ALL IF WE HAVE TO BE PERFECT TO BE LOVED. My sincere condolences to the Jackson family.

For those of you who don't know.

Not only did Extra take down their initial story, they also didn't show Part-2 of their story.

Now you have to ask yourself: Why would they do that?

Usually a tabloid would say "we stand by our story," but for some reason they are not doing that.

Was Michael Jackson gay?? Is the Pope Catholic?? Since he was outed as a pedophile, he had to resort to doing the Humpdy Dumpdy with a grown man--hence the office manager. That's why you don't see more grown men come forward. They weren't his cup of tea, but in the end he had no choice. Michael's preference was always for adolescent boys.

klien reputation is in tatters now and it seems he would like to bring mike down with him , after all , what are friends for? he didnt get anything in the will.....
michael was arnie klien most famous client , now thanks to what we know about his drug peddling , mj is now his most infamous.i wouldnt use him as a doctor.he probably got the sweetest person in the world hooked on pain meds or whatever in the past,just so mike would hang out with him and he would look like a somebody

he is also a habitual liar .he told the grand jury he had never seem mj penis, now with a camera in his face he would lead you to believe thats practically how mj introduced himself, like hi, heres my d@ck.ridiculious
the other thing is that mj stated many times he was not gay.i believe mj, not the guy peddling a story after he is gone.
once again , this has to do with the drug trail from murray to klien imo.
he probably trying to extort a little cash out of the estate to make him go away as well.
maybe he didnt get as much as he wanted for the car that mj once sat in on ebay
these people have no shame and tmz is not too far behind them
because this is all being manipulated.joe should keep his mouth shut and not give this story any creadence

How the hel would JOE know?

By all accounts, MJ couldn't stand his father... why in the world would he confide or not confide in him about homosexuality?

Joe has NO CLUE if MJ was gay or not. MJ wouldn't have told him.
