MJ's Skin Doc

The Med Board Is On My Ass

... and My Lawyer Just Quit

12/5/2011 7:35 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1205_arnie_launch_BN_01
It ain't lookin' good for Dr. Arnie Klein ... Michael Jackson's dermatologist is under investigation by the Medical Board of California --  reportedly for pumping the singer full of prescription painkillers -- and now his lawyer has officially jumped ship.

Klein just posted a letter on his Facebook page, apparently sent from his former attorney -- advising Klein that he's been subpoenaed by the Board and has to appear for questioning on Dec. 15.

The letter does not explain the nature of the probe -- but according to TheDailyBeast.com, officials want to know more about allegations that Klein over-prescribed Demerol to MJ.

The Board reportedly wants to question Klein about the possibility that he self-prescribed narcotics, used false names on narcotics prescriptions, illegally handed out samples of dangerous drugs to his famous patients, and may have committed gross negligence by practicing while afflicted with multiple sclerosis.

Klein has always strongly denied any wrongdoing ... and thus far, has not been accused of any criminal conduct in the death of Michael Jackson.

As for Klein's lawyer, Herbert L. Weinberg -- dude doesn't explain why he's bailing on Arnie ... but recommends a couple of "fine lawyers" who could take over.

We called Klein for comment -- so far, no response.

NO demerol found in MJ's body upon autopsy. FYI, it takes about 12 days for any does of demerol to be eliminated from ones body after administration of the drug.

Guess that rules out the stupid addict theory.

Also, Arnie claims that these meds were not given by him but by other physicians that work with him at his practice. Not saying that Arnie and others are not to be questioned, but I personally prefer to wait for the results of the probe before speculating as to whether Arnie did anything unethical in his treatments of MJ.

I don't know anyone who goes doctor shopping who is not an addict. Some person at MJ's trial who did not treat MJ claims he is not an addict and that's like the word of God to you people? He was taking Demerol - lots of it as the records seem to indicate - until he found someone willing to give him his milk. CM admitted to giving him three different kinds of benzos/sedatives. MJ took a lot of downers, he wanted them, and it got the point where he needed them. No one takes that many drugs so often except for someone with an extreme dependency or addiction. How can you people think that is normal or that he didn't have a problem? And just wait, as Prince gets older he will look more and more like AK. Check out Paris' ears.

Dr. Conrad Murray Seeing Chaplain In Jail


After being sentenced to the maximum four years in jail for his role in Michael Jackson’s death, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned Dr. Conrad Murray has been seeking hope from the jail chaplain.


According to an insider, Dr. Murray was sitting next to Celebrity Rehab alum British producer/writer Duncan Roy last week in the Los Angeles County Jail when he summoned the chaplain to discuss his future.

“Tears welled up in his eyes as he sat across from the chaplain,” the source exclusively told RadarOnline.com. “The chaplain told him, ‘You need hope.’”


Dr. Murray and Roy — who is being held on $35,000 bail for a felony attempted extortion charge — are both being segregated from the rest of the jail because of their “celebrity” status.

I still think someone needs to investigate how much "Dr" Klein charged Michael for all of these drugs. The "doctor" used to say that all fo the drugs he gave Michael "could be taken at once without any harm". If that's true, how good were those drugs? Sounds he was milking Michael and giving him placebos.

For what its worth, I have friends that know Arnie from Vegas and have met Micheal. their 2nd hand stories always shocked me. Ironic that Arnie loves the "bear" gay lifestyle. he loved the fame from his relationship with Micheal. Micheal was his $$$ and bragging rights to attract clients, fame and gay guys for sex. Ive never met him or Micheal so take what i know for face value. we make choices in life, at some point the wrong ones always catch up with you.

Wow..if this picture of Dr. Klein doesn't prove that he is the father of at least Michael's oldest son, I don't know what will. They look exactly alike.

Besides Klein's MS, there is something terribly WRONG with this man! He's completely lost his practice, going bankrupt, etc...Funny, those who F@CKED MJ over are now seeing the light of day, aren't they?! Evan Chandler shot his brains out, Murray in jail, Klein going to lose his license too. I don't know about the medications, we'll have to wait on that. I don't believe anything TMZ posts anymore nor what the 'media' says. Remember you all said MJ just wanted to be 'white', that he molested children. Facts are he indeed had vitiligo and a bad case of it (proven in autopsy and you can see it in photos) as well as LUPUS which you can also see on his skin and clearly MJ never hurt or touched a child. But Klein going on and on about MJ after he died, all his BS stories - his playmate Jason and all that BS. Even Liz Taylor didn't want anything to do with him. Enough is enough. The truth will prevail, as MJ said. Something in my gut tells me he wasn't giving MJ these drugs, at that high amount, clearly MJ didn't have any in his system and it would be detected up to and past 6- 8 months in a hair sample alone, but he was billing MJ for it.

RIP, Michael Jackson!

TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTIONS!!!


I KNOW PEOPLE THAT WENT DOCTOR SHOPPING AND THEY WERE NOT A CELEBRITY!!!


DRUG ADDICTS NEED THEIR DRUG OF CHOICE "EVERY SINGLE DAY" JUST LIKE AN ALCOHOLIC NEED A DRINK EVERY SINGLE DAY JUST TO FUNCTION!!!


IN THOSE MEDICAL RECORDS OF KLEIN DOES NOT SUPPORT THAT MJ WAS ADDICTED TO DEMEROL!!!!


IF YOU TAKE THE TIME TO GO BACK AND RESEARCH THE COVERAGE OF THE TRIAL, IT WILL SHOW THAT THERE WAS LONG PERIODS OF DEMEROL USAGE DURING EACH PROCEDURES WHICH DOES NOT SUPPORT DRUG ADDICTION!!!!


EVERYONE TOLERANCE OF DRUGS ARE DIFFERENT AND YOU CAN NOT ASSUME THAT A PERSON TOLERANCE OF DRUG ARE THE SAME AS THE NEXT PERSON.


IT DOES NOT WORK THAT WAY!!!!


UNFORTUNATELY, WITHOUT PROPER RECORD KEEPING, YOU AND I WILL NEVER KNOW THE EXACT REASON OF WHY THE "QUACK" WAS MIXING DRUGS ON MJ!!!


LIKE JUDGE PASTOR STATED, CONRAD MURRAY WAS EXPERIMENTING ON MJ!!!


ARE YOU TAKING THE WORD OF A KNOWN LIAR WHO WAS DIAGNOSE BY THE PROBATION DEPARTMENT AS "MENTALLY DISTURBED/SUICIDAL"???


YOU AND THE REST CAN CONTINUE TO SPECULATE BUT WITHOUT CONCRETE "FACTS" YOU HAVE NOTHING TO GO!!!


JUST LIKE YOUR ASSUMPTION/SPECULATION OF MJ CHILDREN AND ARNIE KLEIN!!!


IN A COURT OF LAW, YOU NEED FACTS AND THE COURT RULED THAT MJ IS THE FATHER OF MJ3!!!


CASE CLOSED

and that fat tubo-lard Jason Pfeiffer reads this TMZ site and posts on here too, as does freakshow Klein. They're both idiots and disgusting people. Neither one will have any money in a few years from now. No one would hire that liar Jason dude, the guy has a frickin' twitter account and all he does is talk crap about Klein, they're both SO frickin weird, the dude can't even spell. So, they tried to cash in and attach to the gravy train of Michael Jackson, as the saying goes, too bad, too bad about it.

That FAT f@ck Jason Pfeiffer, if you read this, you and arnie klein deserve each other. Neither one of you were anything remotely close to friends with Michael Jackson, one was a doctor, the other was an assistant, hired to open car doors for MJ, that's about it. Liars. Keep dreamin' though....dream your sorry AZZ away that you and MJ 'had a (cough, cough) relationship with your fat AZZ! LIARS the both of you! Rot in h!ll with CONRAT!

RIP, Michael Jackson

Also, I don't see this on Klein's facebook page. Additionally, that would be BS; no medical board is going to say this, 'gross negligence practicing with Multiple Sclerosis'. That's total discrimination and against the law and violates ADA...they can't say that and there's been no investigation to prove Klein cannot practice medicine with MS...! No Medical Board would say this unless there's already an investigation stating he's UNFIT to practice medicine. I don't see that at all. BOGUS!

What I find EVEN MORE disturbing is lawyers sending confidential client information directly to TMZ like Weitzman, one of MJ's attorney's always sending crap to Levin because they're friends. WTF...what about client confidentiality...WTF???!!

did the autopsy show why mj wanted the $20 million reward for evan & jordan?
did the autopsy show why mj wanted murray to be in a children's hospital as his employee?
did fanatics pay drug rehab fees for mj?
did fanatics want to pay murray millions of dollars if mj had miraculously survived his so-called sudden injection?

did the autopsy show the reason for mj's doctor shopping for deadly amounts of wrong drugs, even after mj read a book about avoiding propofol abuse?

since jacko cut off his nose, should his surgeons be in jail too? jacko kept begging to poke holes in his collapsed arm veins and pleaded for hundreds of injections in his destroyed nose. why didn't jacko want bad media attention, and prison time alongside gay teens too?
