Arnie Klein -- Joe Jackson's a Hypocrite!

6/14/2010 1:07 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Arnold Klein -- the man who was probably closest to Michael Jackson -- came out swinging against Joe Jackson, claiming the elder Jackson could have tried talking Michael off a ledge, but all he cared about was making money.

Dr. Klein tells TMZ, "Michael was very close to Katherine, but Joe talked to him too, but all Joe ever wanted to talk about was business.  Everything Joe utters is nonsensical."

Joe is taking lots of flack for telling News of the World Katherine is responsible for Michael's death by not trying to cheer him up.

But Klein says he's over the drama:  "I'm no longer interested in the Sodom and Gomorrah show on Havenhurst (the family home).  My main concern is the welfare of the children, especially Michael's, and the preservation of Michael's memory."

7. Dr.Klein needs to keep his nose out of this business. He's got his nerves to complain about anyone's behavior stating MJ pee'ed in a cup and that MJ had a gay relationship with that no personality blah blah of a man. They both were dreaming.




Put this could all be a hoax. Check out the EmovieBook that will surely knock your mind into another gear.

Pearl,



I've seen and enjoyed some of your work. But it is no secret that MJ was in fear for his life and the lives of his children. If MJ did fake his death, do you think he'd want his enemies to know? I think we as fans should be protecting him instead of peddling our theories for a buck.



We need to learn when to be silent.

LOL! Oh, the irony in Kleins's use of Sodom and Gomorrah as an analogy. Are there Sodomites in the house at Havenhurst, Arnie?

62. Every media outlet suddenly picks up these stories only days before Murray's preliminary hearing. THE MEDIA WILL NEVER CHANGE....THEY USE DIVERSION TACTICS TO BLUR THE REAL ISSUE. The real issue is the death of Michael Jackson and who caused it. I wonder if anyone even bothered to watch the vid of Joe....he did not specifically blame Katherine for Michael's death. In addition, I think Joe is unafraid of what will happen to him...he is outspoken as to who he really believes is responsible and it sure isn't just Conrad Murray. Joe, along with the family, know Murray didn't just act alone...Murray is the fall guy, and everyone that has any sense knows this is true.

I agree with you on this one. Klein is the HYPOCRITE, on all levels. Well, we all know Mike was close to his mum, but before you said that Klein (which we already knew of), did you ever give yourself sometime, to think about what you said about Katherine in one of your interviews with TMZ. Yeah, you said, she is one GREEDY person! Talk of trying to defend Katherine, when you've already said some negative stuff, which i know MJ would've disapproved of.



You need to go away. You don't actually think before you open your mouth. Somebody else can defend Katherine, not you. And again it's none of your business to talk about the Jackson family. You like many of us knew them from a distance, and i know that MJ never told you much about his family, you speculated like a lot of ppl did/do. So just zip it, coz you know nothing! And like i've said beforee, IT'S NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS!



Talk about caring for the kids.........i better hear it from somebody else not you. Did you even give yourself to think about the kids, before you opened your mouth on all those occassions you talked MJ down? No, i don't think so. So how will you care about his kids, when you DIDN'T CARE about their Daddy?

82. Don't get distracted from the issues that are relevant,we don’t know the truth we can guess and wonder if this could be made up crap, lots of lies go along Jackson stories they'll forever be the stalked family. Joe's relationship with his wife & son is irrelevant and what Klein says is irrelevant. The point of Joe having to find out what happened & how much the Estate is making is to assure the rights of Michael's kids, Katherine & the charities Michael supported. Someone wanted to destroy Michael they had it out for him big time. Even after his death they're spewing more lies - enough already. Nothing is being disclosed by the Executors and someone is protecting Murray!




Branca has a history of embezzling money from Michael, the Executors will rape & pillage Michael's music, image & name with no opportunity for the children to have a say in their Daddy's legacy. No one really knows what went on behind closed doors its all speculation. So how can the Jackson family know the children's rights are preserved when the Executors are not letting anyone know the true amount made since Michael's death! There are many hands in this stated death, if the Estate lawyers really cared they would fight for justice for Michael. They controlled Michael in life and even now they just can't stop shame on them.




Thank goodness Joe Jackson is speaking out about the greed, corruption & abuse of Michael's career, Katherine cannot contest or protest. We have to know that there will never be a perfect situation in life and that also applies to this vulnerable family now. There's valid reasons why Joe is pushing for justice & the Executors to expose how much Michael is worth dead and who benefits because of it....he is pushing to disclose TRUTH!
Support Joe.




GOD BLESS.
***FOREVER LOVEU MICHAEL***
There can be no peace until there is justice!

Ditto! Brilliant! There was wickedness around Michael. Go, Joe, Go! (And I'm not saying that I agree with what was said about Katherine.) Joe is old school and doesn't show emotion, especially in public. It was probably the way he was raised. I had an older relative who was like that. Joe shot off his mouth in an interview. How many married people have said things when they were hurt or frustrated? Was Joe mis-quoted? We see how TMZ can paint Klein as a white knight after he makes all kinds of crazy comments about MJ. That just further ruins TMZ's image, if that is at all possible. :)

Klein who is a notoriety-seeker and back-stabber should just shut up. I was appalled when he talked about Michael's medical issues on CNN/Larry King Live. What happened to HIPAA Laws? They protect Michael Jackson also. He also dropped the bomb that he could be the oldest kids father--what a creep. All I could think of after MJ's death last year was how his kids could not watch tv because of all of the B$. Michael's real friends are people like: Miko Brando, Chris Tucker and Liz Taylor to name a few. They didn't sell MJ out in death and tell all of his secrets. I respect and admire them for this. Klein and the rest of the grifters, back-stabbers, enablers, extortionist and pimp docs need to just go away...Forever.

Get real    

Why doesn't this fat pig shut up! Better yet, why doesn't TMZ stop giving him a platform!
Joe did say he also blamed himself for not getting to MJ. Why doesn't the dumb ass media stop taking what Joe said out of context just to feed the fire. What Joe said was if Katherine would have gotten to Michael, stayed with him like he asked her to, things may have turned out differently. He may be right!
Bless the woman but her MO is to just let **** happen with her meek JW background. She doesn't like conflict just like Michael didn't. Maybe it is high time she stood up for the truth and justice for her son! No Fear Mrs. J.!

hm    

If, Arnie klein is so concern about the welfare of the children, why don't he take custody of the children and use his own money to support the children, and leave MJ's money to the Jacksons. If not, Shut the HELL UP!!!

Talk of the pot calling the kettle black. Arnold Klein is the most obnoxious person ever to pretend MJ was his friend.He is just a greedy person who used MJ for money and fame during his life and especially after his death. At least Joe worked his fingers to the bone to raise his nine children and get them out of the ghetto.He opened the doors of fame and stardom to them, through their upbringing, and this includes MJ.Arnold Klein, on the other hand has always been a parasite, and took advantage of MJ throughout his whole life. I wish he would shut up. And shame on you TMZ, for always providing Klein with a platform for his delusions of grandeur. He would wish he was half the man that Joe Jackson is.

Lay off the crap stories, TMZ. You only use
Joe's senility and Klein's stupidity to ridicule
Michael in a round about way, like you've always done.
