We all saw the outrageous prices he was charging MJ; gouging him for medical treatment. And this went on for years. Now that the cash cow that supported his lifestyle is dead, Arnie can't make a living... Plus, who wants to visit a doctor who reveals personal information about his patients? Can trust 'im.

Arnie should move to the uk, everyone else is here. Maybe make a do***entary. David Guest has been here a while. Arnie could be on come dine with me and make a fortune or with "im a celeb get me out of here". Just mention MJ and you will be sure to make mega bucks. By the way what happened to the guy who was stripping off his shirt with Michael in Arns office? Did the Japanese fans torture him lol.

Klein I refuse to call him Dr because he is just a devious and shady character. I refuse to believe anything he says. I thought he and his tele tubby blimp (Jason) was supposed to be in hiding from MJ fans? I feel so sad that MJ was so trusting to freaks like Dr Shady and had to suffer so much before he found out. This idiot is the pits and if he is bankrupt, which i doubt since he is a stranger to the truth, then I say MJ you are being avenged even from the grave. There's more to come Dr Lard you ugly piece of s*&t. MJ I love you and I know without a doubt that you are now at peace. This world did not appreciate you because they did not deserve someone as angelic and loveable as you, but trust me your fans did love and still loves you and will always love you. I Love you Michael.

All the lying stories that he sold bashing Michael Jackson is now over for him. They are all going to fall one by one, sooner or later. That father committing suicide, his bankruptcy, and murray on trial for MJ's death. Let the chips fall where they may. Vengence and justice will be had for Michael Jackson to each and every one of them that tried to bring him down.

This is the result of losing his biggest client, customer, oh I mean patient. MJ afforded this man his lifestyle. No wonder he sold out his license to practice medicine, he used his patients to get rich, and now his biggest paycheck is gone, no wonder he can no longer afford that lifestyle. Oh to be just like us regular folks, what a shame.

So taxpayers must suffer for this guy and his lack of financial responsibility? That sucks, costs will be passed on because he has no integrity...great dude. Hope he feels the humiliation and gains humility. Suck it up and Pay your own bills Klein!

Eventually it will come out that this is Paris and Prince's dad, they look just like him! especially Prince, put a side by side up of those 2 they are spitting images of each other!

It has already come out that Arnold Klein is the father. Prince looks a lot like him. Only stupid Wacko fans still want to believe that the self hating skin bleaching freak actually went near Debbie Rowe and got her pregnant. Jacko didn't want nappy haired, big nose children and bought two white kids from Klein and Rowe to try to fool people that they were his. The only people who believe that those are Wacko's are his loser fans.

Yes, I believe this also. But when did it come out, because I don't remember seeing it or hearing about it?
