Dr. Klein Hands Over Michael Jackson's Records

Dr. Klein and his attorney handed over the documents during a pretrial hearing in Dr. Conrad Murray's manslaughter case.

Murray's team wants the paperwork to determine exactly what drugs Klein used to treat MJ. As TMZ reported ... Klein's medical records show he injected Michael with Demerol 51 times in the three months before he died.

Last month, Dr. Klein asked the judge to quash the subpoena for his records. Fail.

According to the interview that Arnie gave to Harvey on TMZ in 2009, Michael was NOT currently addicted to any narcotics.


Also, according to Arnie Kleins do***ents that were posted on TMZ Oct 27, 2009 the 51 injections were listed ONLY as intra muscular. Unfortunately the do***ents are either not coming up for me or TMZ has removed them.

Great post, mymjj5!
No, I'm not in denial either about Michael's drug problems, but
a) that doesn't mean I love him less and
b) I strongly refuse to accept that his addiction reduces Murray's guilt just for one single iota!

BTW: Michael's family did not fail to accept his problems. There's more than one interview in which they talked about it and their attempts to start an intervention.

AND in Kleins live interview that he gave to Harvey in 2009, Michael asked Klein for a referrel for an anesthesiologist two weeks prior to his death.

Well at least MJ didn't have to risk his life by going on the streets to get his drugs by illegal drug dealers. He had it all in the comfy of his own home. Most drug addicts aren't that lucky, they get arrested, aids and etc... MJ was very lucky. LOL...

Whatever Klein gave Michael, it has nothing to do with his death or Murray's responsibility for it. Michael's weakened state the last week came from not having slept properly (propofol doesn't provide real sleep) for the time Murray had been around, injecting it.

The whole world knew Michael saw Klein regularly, and any doctor worth his salt would have looked into that while Michael was still alive. Michael was not in bad shape because of Demerol, and it didn't play a part in his death. His inner organs were OK, except for his lungs - which Murray should also know about.

Michael did not die because a was "a drug addict". He died because the worthless person he hired to help him sleep agreed to provide propofol and then did everything wrong. No matter how many painkillers Michael may have taken for periods of his life, they didn't kill him. They perhaps could have at some point, but they didn't. Murray killed him and should be held responsible for it.

A defense lawyer for Michael Jackson's doctor said Wednesday the singer was so anguished about his deteriorating finances in his final days that he took desperate actions that caused his own death.

----------------

Good grief. I'd say Chernoff's client himself is highly used to "deterioting finances" and "desperate actions" – for example selling his soul and ethics as a doctor for 150000 $ a month.

Michael, a drug addict with a gourmet chef, personal physician, personal assistant, and billionaire financiers lined up to do business with him.
Michael allegedly hired a college professor to assist Prince with his interest in cinemotography...
Leave it to michael jackson the new businessman and concerned parent standard for drug addiction.....lol!
You haters must moonlight for the Tobacco Industry/Cigarette Companies..."knowingly" make a health hazardous life ending product yet run commericials urging consumers about the dangers of using it......pleazzz!!!

MJ only agreed to these shows not for the fans but for the money to fund his drug problems
_______________________________________________________________

Repeat from 5 or 6 articles ago: Michael turned AEG down twice before he agreed to do one show. It took AEG and Randy Phillips 2 years to get Michael to come back to the stage. This is getting old and just too convenient. Team murray and his online media pundits really have nothing to defend his lying behind.

Why does tmz always put "Michael's friend" when we all know klein was NO friend to Michael! Even harvey didn't believe half the BS klein was throwing around.

Well said Aston, I fully agree with you.
So far defences tactics seems to be:
Klein gave Demerol to Michael and Michael died for withdraw symptoms.
Michael financial difficulties drove Michael to drink Propofol.

What next?

Like judge said it, they are deep sea fishing.

Klein would have given Michael treatment/shots/injections approximately 1 time per week or 4.3 times per month....quit trippin. The services were medically necessary.
