Dr. Murray: Arnie Klein Made MJ a Demerol Addict

3/22/2011 4:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Conrad Murray's lawyers just filed blistering legal docs, claiming Dr. Arnold Klein -- Michael Jackson's longtime doctor and friend -- addicted him to Demerol and another powerful narcotic.

In legal papers obtained by TMZ, Murray's legal team claims Klein fueled MJ's drug dependency by giving him scores of Demerol injections in the months prior to his death.  TMZ broke the story ... in the 3 months before Jackson died, Dr. Klein gave MJ 51 Demerol injections.

The docs claim, "Due to Mr. Klein's actions, Mr. Jackson became physiologically and psychologically dependent on Demerol." 

Murray's team wants Klein to produce all his medical records, claiming "Dr. Klein is a relevant and highly material witness to the defense."

I think the defense argument will be that long term opioid abuse caused significant issues with Jacko's health that Murray could not have foreseen. Certainly the defense can find expert after expert to detail the health consequences of long term addiction to demerol and problems with respiratory depression and potential for cardiac arrest, whether the drugs were in his system at time of death or not. Keep in mind, Murray's defense team doesn't need to get Jacko fans to believe him, just 12 rather dim witted people jurors who may be very impressed by medical speak and a well dressed African American doctor.

Jacko made his kids orphans by valuing his milk of amnesia over his children. Most parents who under go anesthesia for a REAL medical problem would be scared to death of dying and leaving their child without a parent. Yet Jacko sought out doctor after doctor to administer anesthesia in his own home, night after night. That's on him- not Murray. Murray might be a s***bag doctor catering to junkies- but Jacko decided he was going to risk his life getting his propofol fix leaving children he made without a mother orphans. What kind of person does that? He created these children without another parent then valued his addiction over his kids.

CM didn't conduct any do***entation himself, giving to Michael propofol, so then there is nothing to demand from others it.

Jacko's, as you refer, autopsy showed organs completely healthy, no long term affects on anything. what long term addiction to demerol. that's all speculative. there's been NO proof of that. TMZ posted Klein was giving MJ IM injections, there's NO proof it was demerol..none, it could have been botox, fillers, anesthesics...

Nope, MJ died because there was an ocean of propofol (his eyeballs were swimming in it) was found in MJ's body...that's why MJ died, has nothing to do with anything else. You give anyone that much propofol, don't monitor the patient, walk away to go chat on your cell to one of your many baby mama's, that patient, whether they were a full blown heroin addict or a one month old child who never took anything...is going to DIE.

Ok, so maybe Klein and others were involved in medicating Michael, but NOTHING can alter THE FACT, THE FACT, that it was Murray who gave the final fatal overdose. Others should maybe face trial at some point but NOTHING, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING can change the FACT that Murray is guilty of the fatal injection. Murray was negligent, reckless and incompetent and he killed his patient. MURRAY IS GUILTY and he's now getting desperate and blaming everyone and anyone but himself for Michael's murder.

well, it looks like MJ's addiction (pleaaasseee) to little boys just simply went away 'poof' - cleared up after the last trial, now doesn't it, after the plantiff's (i.e. lying GAVIN family) didn't and couldn't win any money...they lost on EVERY count, EVERY ONE. Nope, no jesus juice for gavin either and he cried like a little baby too. Funny how that happened, MJ fought, MJ won, and...low and behold no more allegations. Sorry folks, doesn't work that way...child molesters have a trail a mile long and it never ends. If MJ or any true child molester wanted to play with little boys, especially someone with MJ's money...they're not going to pick a child with supposed cancer. MJ could have had anyone he wanted, gone to ASIA and had a field day and they would have been more then ready and willing...that's a fact.

Never happened, none of it ever happened.

MiMi, Klein arranged for Propofol to be used on MJ's kid at MJ's request, at his office building. You just proved that you don't know what the heck you are talking about, and can't even read the news.

hey...yo...IT WAS DENTAL SURGERY BECAUSE HE DIDN'T WANT HIS KID TO SUFFER THROUGH A DENTAL PROCEDURE..I don't know, I don't think I'd want a frickin tooth extracted, whatever, without anesthesia, in fact...when I had my wisdom teeth out, that's excactly what my mom did, had an anesthesiologist but me under to pull my 4 impacted wisdom teeth..HELLO...happens every minute of the day.

Who are these people posting on here, it's so damn stupid...where do they get their BS facts...from The Star...PLEASSEEE!
