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.

Oh please, it could have been Michael's jacket anyway. We all know how he loved to give away jackets. I happy they threw the claim out because Klein is ridiculous.

The jacket clearly fits Klein and not Jackson. Why don't they just give it back?

They're not even the same jacket. The colours are different, the crest is different and the lapel isn't even cut the same.

Why am I not surprised? The Estate is going over every claim with a fine-toothed comb to weed out genuine claims from false claims.That jacket was not worth $10,000. If Klein overcharged doctor fees,the Estate will deny claims and ask to go over the charges to find a reasonable price.Every false claim made will be denied.

I don't give a **** in 10,000 years about MJ, but his estate was doing a very good job.

UNTIL I heard this.

GIVE THE DOC HIS **** BACK YOU ********... and pay up his claim too.

Well, much as I dislike Klein, why can't he have his jacket back? Odd.

Look at center section of the crest on the guy on the left & MJs jacket. It's two totally different embroideries. So yeah dude probably still has that jacket in his closet and is trying to come up on a quick $10,000. Oh well, better luck next time.
