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.

I WANT TO REPOST TO THE BOARD ATTENTION WHAT katie10 HAD WRITTEN!!!


I MUST SAY, I HAVE TO AGREE WITH HER 10000000%!!!!


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!


NOW, TMZ POSTED THIS BIT OF INFORMATION:


The Board reportedly wants to question Klein about the possibility that he self-prescribed narcotics, used false names on narcotics prescriptions


KLEIN WAS THE "DRUG ADDICT" USING HIGH DOSAGE OF DEMEROL FOR HIMSELF AND OVER CHARGING MJ FOR IT!!!


DELIBERATE SCAM!!!


HE WENT ON A MEDIA BLITZ PROCLAIMING MJ WAS A DRUG ADDICT WHEN ACTUALLY HE IS THE ONE!!!!


NOW, THAT'S A DAMN SHAME!!!!

EXCLUSIVE DO***ENTS: 'Bankrupt' Michael Jackson Doctor Worth $7.5 Million -- Read The Papers


Michael Jackson's former friend and dermatologist, Arnold Klein, filed for bankruptcy earlier this year, and despite his previous claims of minimal assets, RadarOnline.com has discovered the doctor is worth millions and we've got the do***ents to prove it!


EXCLUSIVE DO***ENTS: Dr. Arnold Klein's Amended Bankruptcy Filing


In the original bankruptcy petition filed in January, Dr. Klein claimed to have $3.5 million in debt, and estimated his assets to be worth $0 - $50,000.


However, newly filed do***ents obtained exclusively by RadarOnline.com reveal Dr. Klein actually has millions of dollars in assets - $7,563,60......0 to be exact!


PHOTOS: Stage Shots of Michael Jackson Performing


Listed among his assets are three California properties: one in Los Angeles, another in Laguna Beach and yet another in Palm Springs.


According to court do***ents, Klein's Los Angeles home -- which was gutted by fire in November 2010 -- is worth $9 million and holds $20,000 worth of gym equipment. The home was also said to be in default in October 2010, and Klein lost $1.5 million in artwork, furniture, and other items in the fire, which was covered by insurance.


PHOTOS: Inside Michael Jackson's House


Dr. Klein's Laguna Beach home is valued at $12 million and the home in Palm Springs at $1.9 million.


What is in those homes may surprise you.


The Beverly Hills dermatologist is an avid art collector with hundreds of pieces totaling a value of $7.2 million!

The collection includes Baccarat, Waterford and Lalique crystal as well as various pieces by Picasso, Gaugin, Cindy Sherman, David Hockney, bronzes by Robert Graham, photographs by Herb Ritts and numerous pieces by Andy Warhol, including the famed Marilyn Monroe - and more.


In addition to his homes and extensive art collection, Dr. Klein owns many vehicles including a $170,000 2001 Ferrari 360...... Modena, a $130,000 2005 Bentley GT, a $36,000 2008 Cadillac Escalade, He also owns a $4,000 2006 Honda Pilot and a $2,500 2002 Chrysler Gem.

And despite his stated income of $30,000 a month, Dr. Klein has acquired a great deal of debt.


The doctor owes almost $3 million to City National Bank, $100,000 to the drug company Allergen, $157,000 to the IRS, $80,000 to American Express and another $80,000 to Bank of America. The do***ents claim Dr. Klein has paid $30,000 to American Express and $47,000 to a law firm.

Put Arnold Klein in jail too! Murray and Klein call themselves doctors, but they are nothing but drug dealers and liars, only thinking of themselves and $$$. Klein is much to blame for Michael's prescription drug dependency.

JUDGE MITCHELL BECKLOFF RULED MJ3 IS MICHAEL JACKSON CHILDREN!!!!


The judge's rulings came after Mark Vincent Kaplan, attorney for dermatologist Arnold Klein, Michael Jackson's dermatologist and a longtime friend of the singer, objected to the custody arrangement, which could allow the singer's father, Joe Jackson, to be involved in the children's upbringing.

Addressing widespread rumors that he is the biological father of Michael Jackson's two older children via sperm donation, Klein previously said on "Larry King Live" that he is not, "to the best of my knowledge," the children's biological father.

In court, Kaplan responded to the judge's question about Klein's relationship to the Jackson children, saying, "Legally, he is not a presumed parent."

i agree that all the enablers of his mutilation and enjoyment of emotional self-destruction are guilty, not only murray (who was picked out because he craved attention and a pity party with mj regarding their bad parents). jermaine, la toya, joe and katherine kept saying "be happy that mj's happy" with his plastic surgeries and "a caucasian tanning is no different". janet just said he had vitiligo. in 2007, mj said he "could've been" overmedicated the last 10 years.
if mj and the jacksons were innocent, how come they tried to avoid talking about the major problems until he killed himself with the aid of a atupid, weak, pathetic sycophant psycho that he chose. the fanatics wouldn't have cared if mj continued using disturbed slaves to give him injections as long as he performed as their puppet. '
he pretended he was building children's hospitals and acted like the man-woman peter pan victim of a lost childhood to fool murray into thinking that mj was only temporarily depressed.

accesshollywood.com/michael-jacksons-kids-celebrate-their-fathers-legacy-in-las-vegas_video_1371902 the kids were desperate to see him on stage.

Prayers and love for MICHAEL'S children. "ADULT BULLIES" stop hating on these children! Michael's name is on their birth certificates and not (YOURS!!!)or any other fathers. Much love, prayers and hugs to all.

I am willing to bet my last bottom dollar, that this quack is Prince biological father. I know it is irrelevant, because MJ took care of them all, better than any other father could have (or would have), but the resemblance is just uncanny!!
