Michael Jackson's Doctor

Files For Bankruptcy

1/25/2011 11:48 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson's doctor and longtime confidante,  Dr. Arnie Klein -- one of the most successful docs in Bev Hills -- has filed for bankruptcy ... TMZ has learned.

Dr. Arnie Klein Bankruptcy

Klein -- who filed his petition in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in L.A. -- claims debts between $1 and $10 million.

Klein -- a dermatologist with an enormous celebrity clientele including Cher, Elizabeth Taylor and Dolly Parton  -- owes $80,000 to American Express, $127,000 to the IRS, nearly $2.6 million to City National Bank for a mortgage, $50,000 to one of his lawyers, $20,000 to the landlord of his office building, and $115,000 to Dr. David Rish, the doc who shares office space with Klein.

Klein, who also owes nearly a quarter of a million bucks to medical suppliers, filed for Chapter 11 last Thursday.

It is amazing how one man can die, and over the course of the next two years, dozens of people he was close to can suddenly not have any money...
Maybe this is why he was injecting MJ constantly, so he could bill him ridiculous amounts of money.
Shameful

It is clear from interviews after Michael passed away that Arnie Parnie lost it long ago. I don´t know what is wrong, if he is "on" something or what, but he is such an oddball - something ain´t right with that man.

I pity the fools that are blind and don't see the strong resemblance between arnie and especially Prince I. Prince is the spitting image of this guy. The eyes give it away. But, there are blind followers (pun intended) that will continually argue that he is not the father and that MJ was. I'm a fan of MJ's music and thought he was a brilliant entertainer, but I'm not blind. I see the huge resemblance. Arnie is at least Prince's father.

Don't bring MJ's kids into this. There is nothing wacky about his children. Regardless of who their bio father is, MJ was the one raising them and that's all that should be said about them. They loved him, and were a family unit. People are so mean and jealous, why? This is why the media writes this kind of stuff for people that have nothing else to do but trash people they don't even know personally, only what they hear and read. REALLY? Get a life! I believe in Karma, what goes around comes around. Arnie is getting what's coming to him. Be careful what you say about someone especially if it's not true, it can be about you someday or someone you love personally! Watch, it WILL happen!

Glynn (dumbas s), yes I do take it as a compliment to hear i'm pretty much like MJ. I also take it as a compliment that things like you would call me an idiot _ not much else you CAN do besides sit back and try to pull someone else down to your pitiful level. Strive to do better for yourself, OK!?

OK, First of all, you are all wrong! it makes me laugh that all the nay sayers don't have a clue and just make up these stories of what they think is happening!(Who made you lead investigator)whatever makes your hair fly back! Ignorant People! 1st of all he has his friends and business going. It has nothing to do with a cash cow being gone! I don't think MJ would like anyone considering him a CASH-COW.Shame on all of you! It's this economy and all the scam artists in this world that are LAZY and want to live the high life on someone elses DIME that are to blame! And you 2 know who you are! The Nay Sayers all act as if you were never scammed by a trusted friend/colleage that was jealous of your happiness and success no matter what tax bracket you are in! I and YOU all see it going on everyday. People losing jobs, homes etc.. and there are some doing the right thing to get by and others scamming you or someone close to you for all they got! Maybe we should put all you on TMZ to show your Scam Dilemas! I should even put mine!There is no difference here, just that Dr. K was friends with MJ, Makes it news. You all should be slamming Dr. Murray for Leaving MJ for dead while he was on the phone! and leave Dr. K alone! If you have the energy to voice your negative views, then use some of it to get your facts straight. Its just a BK! Millions of people do it, Its his business and no one out there is "Perfect" to be judging. Dr. K is a Generous/caring man and has been great to our Children/family, So you people don't act as if you know him and what he's about.

What I don't get it why American Express let him charge that much in the first place. They should have seen the pattern going on a declined him on purchasing things.
