Michael Jackson Doctor

Loses $10,000 Jacket Battle

With MJ Estate

8/17/2011 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Arnie Klein's got some fall shopping to catch up on in Beverly Hills -- because TMZ has learned, the Michael Jackson estate just REJECTED the good doc's claim to return his old, $10,000 jacket.

TMZ broke the story -- Klein says he loaned Michael Jackson a $10,000 Gianfranco Ferre jacket before the singer died, but MJ never returned it.

Klein filed a claim against Michael's estate back in February 2010 to get it back -- and yesterday, the estate finally got around to giving him an answer ... go fly a kite.

But the estate didn't just tell Arnie to buzz off -- according to the legal docs, the estate also rejected a former lawyer's $3 million bill, an old accountant's $60,000 bill ... plus an additional $354,230 in other claims.

That said, it's not the end of the road for Arnie or MJ's other creditors -- they can still sue the estate in court. But it's unclear if that's what Arnie and co. plan to do.

Of course the Estate will reject all claims. More money for the lawyers if they battle everything out in court.

The "estate" took over a year and a half to tell him he couldn't have back his own property? Sweet fok. Back in '79 I bought the LP "Off the Wall". I'm sorry now that I actually contributed to that effing estate 32 years ago.

Anybody who pays $10,000. for a jacket deserves whatever happens to them...and it!

MJ may have purchased the jacket from Klein instead of borrowing and Klein probably wants to auction it off now.

Clearly the jacket is Dr. Klein's. Look at how well it fits Dr. Klein verses how large it is on MJ. Those estate attorney's are over-stepping their own authority. I hope Dr. Klein sues for the jacket and includes attorneys' fees. MJ estate attorneys certainly never deny their OWN bill!

I was unaware that either of those clowns had won the Masters.
