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.

"At a preliminary hearing for Murray. Jackson was quoted by a witness as saying if he didn't sleep he would have to cancel the tour."

It doesn't sound like a man prone to desperate actions - more like a man realizing he might have to cancel the tour. I wish he had.

More to the point, perhaps – who heard him say that, and what were their conclusions as to the fate of the tour and the financial investment in it?

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.

murray's team is trying to put the blame on klein.Klein had been Michael's dermatologist for many years,if he wanted to harm Michael he could have done it a long time ago and definately not before the tour.

Besides klein wasn't at Michael's house,murray the killer was.

I think Dr. Klein is the father to Prince Jackson, Michaels oldest. He strongly resembles him.

Grasping at straws again. Dr. Klein had been treating Michael
for his skin disease for years. Michael died under Murray's
care and he should be found guilty of gross negligence and recklessness, license revoked and up to 4 years or more in
jail.

WOW, Now that is what I call a great father, DOPED up on Demerol. Michael was in millions dollars worth of debt- but always found the time & MONEY for some demerol! Michael knew what he was getting himself into, and ultimately he killed himself!!

tiger is a fraud    

I am so glad MJ is being exposed for the criminal he was. Who are this TINI group wanting to be part of the trial? They started yet another bogus petition. Are they kidding? wacko fans sure are delusional at all times. No wonder they can't get jobs.

LOL! At least he'd have enough for some nice portions each days at his girlfriend's home...

btw: Here's another Michael statue, this time in London. Already very hotly debated – no wonder. Really, sometimes you don't know whether to laugh or cry.

Not really witness, quackster. Thats what he told to detectives when he "finally" made himself available for questioning.
--------------------------------------
Michael Jackson, desperate for sleep, warned a doctor on the day he died that he would have to cancel his comeback concerts unless he received a dose of "his milk" - the powerful anesthetic propofol, according to testimony from the lead detective in the case against Jackson's doctor.

How many times do we have to say that Michael openly admitted to DEPENDENCY ON PAIN MEDICATION ALMOST 20 YEARS AGO. Michael's medical history/ailments are public knowledge. The fans are not in denial.
The fans can accept anything about Michael Jackson. We will never accept the lying explanation given by Murray and his mentally dull defense team. Michael's death has been ruled a homicide because he was murdererd.

Well I think SOME of the fans are definitely in denial. But I'm personally not, and I've been a Michael fan since the 80s. I'm not one who thinks Michael was a living angel on earth with zero faults. I definitely believe he had major psychological issues (brought on of course by his abusive upbringing and the pressures of extraordinary fame and wealth) and that at certain times over the years he was dependent upon (read ADDICTED TO) prescription medications.

That being said, I don't for one second believe that Conrad Murray did nothing to cause Michael's death on the morning of June 25th. Michael's life and emotional stability was a mess no doubt, but if Michael was on the edge of a cliff, Murray pushed him off. Let him (Murray) go to jail for 4 years and think about his poor decisions. Klein should be in prison too, for feeding Michael so many dangerous drugs over the years. 51 shots of Demerol in one month? No responsible doctor would do such a thing. But again, the almighty dollar was more important to both of these men (Klein and Murray) than was the welfare of a human being.

hi Cathy
I second that! Michael was not a saint. Also it was reported 51 shots in 3 months not one month like you stated. THree months of treatment is no biggie. It just sounds outlandish to the illeducated mind.
