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."

Joe has ALWAYS been interested in money first, middle and last. It's all he ever used Michael for...money money money and that's why Michael cut Joe and his siblings out of his will. Michael's money is for Michael's three children ONLY. Get greedy lying Joe out of the picture NOW !!!

the welfare of Michael's children. Give me a break.

Klein can shut up like Joe. he is not better. same s***bags.using MJ to make monney. Joe is mad because he can not screw Katherine for monney. I understand now why MJ kept him out off the will. Good thing he is showing his real face for the Kids to see. they are not stupid. it is good to know the real faces off the so called friends and family members.

Where did you get the idea this man was the closest to MJ? That's ridiculous! MJ had many friends but this dude was not a friend. It's rich that he is bashing Joe because not too long ago Arnie accused MJ of having a gay affair with someone on his office staff!



Arnie doesn't give a rat's ass about MJ. That's clear by his OWN ACTIONS.

This is just all crazy. We know that Joe Jackson is all about money and is trying to come up with anything and everything to get a peice of what he's son did not LEAVE HIM!!! Michael will never be able to rest, because someone is going to be wanting he's money.

I'm not comfortable with Arnie's connection to TMZ. It seems he can always use Harvey and TMZ to make his voice heard, no matter what. Shut him off. He's getting way too much from you.



Please don't cultivate relationships with celebs. It's obvious that's what has taken place here.

Arnie lost the right to comment on anything related to MJ when he betrayed Michael's trust. He's saying all he cares about is the kid's welfare, what a hypocrite Arnie is, if he truly cared he wouldn't have betrayed their father's trust like that!



having said that, it's quiet obvious that Joe is out of line here, we don't need Arnie's assertion to see that.

That is a stringiest looking wig and the worst shade of lipstick. I think he has his daddy's eyes in that picture.

Preservation of Mj's money alright... into his pockets!! Isn't Arnie the one saying BS also? MJ isn't gay never was!! And YET Arenie claims MJ was just to sell stories to the poisonous press and make money just as Joe is doing! No one in MJ's life was worth 5cents! The only ones who did love Mj the person and not the money were his children, ?Sister Rebbie, and his loving mother! Joe and Arnie need to take up residence under the same slimie rock!! I'm sick of them both!! MOVE on Already Arnie!!

I'm not sure why TMZ and/or Harvey continue to give Arnie Klein any voice at all. The man is a complete joke and you know when you listen to Harvey, he's a very intelligent man. Why on earth, unless it's purely for sensationlism, anyone at TMZ ever asks Klein's opinion on absolutely anything is beyond me and it makes me sick when I see a story having to do with him speaking on anything MJ. As for the "I want to preserve MJ's legacy" crap...really???? Is that what you were attempting to do with your other ludicrous stories about Michael Jackson? Ugh. It just makes me sick!
