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.

@lance-where do you get our facts? Because it has been PROVEN that MJ is Prince and Paris's biological dad.

@glory-Again a dna test was done years ago,which just proved MJ IS the biological dad.Prince does not look ANYTHING like klein..seriously people learn about genetics and how they work.

Sorry Missy, but there is no DNA test proving that Michael is the biological father of any of his children. Because he is not. Whatever you read, saw or heard is not true. Genetics in most families almost all of the time show for themselves. Just like mines and, I'm sure yours too, without having to take course in Genetics. And, as the old saying goes, "Seeing is believing." Hence, Prince 1, (especially the older he gets, and the heavier he gets, because he has gained weight) looks more and more like Arnie Klein, and Paris looks more like Mark Lester, the older she gets. Way more than they do Michael Jackson.

I think these kids should be off limits and TMZ should delete comments that are made about them, these kids go to school now and will be the subject of some smart azz poking and making fun out of them, its ok for the adults on here to tear it other throats out, but please leave the kids alone!

Hi barbara
Prince, Paris and Blanket are black. No way will TMZ stop the hatred and lies against three black children. If they were white this would not be happening to them.

#1, Michael's children are going to go through this for the rest of their lives no matter what, and I believe that they already know it, but just does not let it affect them. Just like the rest of the Jackson family are used to being talked about in the media and for the most part don't care, because they've been through it all of their lives. And the children will be the same way. The two oldest are now teenagers and very smart. They know that they are Michael Jackson's legal children and heir to his Estate. So why would they even care about what people say about who their biological father is. (I myself would not care). What would be the point? Would they walk away from Michael Jackson (their legal dad) and the Jackson family just to go and be with someone just because they made them for the sole purpose of giving them to Michael Jackson so that he could have and love his own children. I don't think so. The two oldest know that they were born Jacksons and that's who they are. And btw Prince Michael I, represents his father Michael Jackson very well. His good mannerisms and good character shows how much good he learned from Michael. I like the way he carries himself and I being a true Michael Jackson fan am very proud of him. So, all in all, eventhough Arnie Klein and Mark Lester may have just been donors, they are not fathers. I have a cousin that relates to her father as just a donor and nothing more.

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.

But do you know him personality? I'm not sure whether you were joking or not. Because after all, this man said so many mean and nasty things about Michael Jackson on TMZ live. For instance, saying that Michael urinated in jars on stage and in front of people because he was afraid to go to the bathroom. To me that was humiliating Michael, and not hardly being a caring person at all.

Dr. Arnold Klein is a loser. Now I understand why he told the press his late 'friend' Michael Jackson was gay and used to urinate in cups in front of children. He did it to collect money to pay off his huge debts.

HarlotO"Hara, you and everyone like you, are atheist and don't love anyone. You have a heart's stone. You didn't born from mother, and have never knowm a father because you've born from a tree. It's becouse you are incapable to understand about love. You hate Michael becouse he's loved everyone unreservedly. But you never know about love and you wish be loved for someone like Prince, Paris and Blanket were.

I think in life we reap what we sow.
I bear no malice to anyone, but he is only getting what they deserve, whether good or bad. I hope he learns from his mistakes and not commit again. What he talked about MJ, it was very cruel even if it were true he has no such right. And for the record, MJ is not dead. And surely the world he is very well, thank you!

Yes there was a dna test done years ago,I've already posted it several times. Michael IS their biological dad. Prince also has vitiligo(which is genetic) you don't have to look like you parents you can look like your grandparents,great-grandparents,aunts,uncles etc. Prince looks just like Samuel,Randy and MJ(Thriller era) Paris looks just like Katherine,Janet,and a young Latoya,as well as Debbie) and she has MJs smile. It's past time to accept the FACT that Michael Jackson IS their biological dad.

No matter how much income you are making if you do not manage your expenses well it can really get the better of you. Even if you are making great income at one point, illness, legal problems, or just economy can decrease what you are making.
