Michael Jackson's Doctor

The Medical Board

Thinks I'm Crazy!

breaking news

0718_arnie_klein_tmzDr. Arnold Klein -- one of Michael Jackson's closest friends and the doc who prescribed untold quantities of medications for the singer -- has been ordered by the Medical Board of California to undergo psychological testing -- and Klein is demanding to know why.

Klein's lawyer filed legal docs, suggesting the testing was triggered by "some scurrilous, disreputable source, trying to cause Dr. Klein trouble."

The Med Board has ordered Klein to submit to a physical exam, which includes "biological testing to determine the presence of scheduled and/or illicit drugs."  The Board also insists Klein submit to psychological testing by a shrink selected by the Board.

And it gets even tougher for Klein ... The Board has informed him if he does not submit to testing, they might yank his license.

Klein has gone to court, asking a judge to force the Board to disclose who's behind the whole thing and why they think he might be unstable.

After all the money he made on Michael Jackson, not even once I have heard him praising Michael. Actually, only crooked things came out of that office: illegal demerol prescriptions, Debbie Rowe, and that guy Jason, was coached by Klein to say he was Michael's gay lover! Michael was not gay!

So nice of them to tell him when and where he can expect to take a drug test. I hear random testing is over-rated anyway.

What I Think    

Prescribed untold quanities of medications for the singer? But why? He wasn't a drug addict. Or so his fans claim.

Prince Jackson is Arnie Klein the second. He looks just like him. Paris is his daughter.

Everyone's pissed off at Conrad Murray, but this guy is so much more the problem.

Klein became crazy after MJ died and has continued to get worse over the past 3 years. Hopefully, he will get medical help because he's in dire need of it. If Klein doesn't follow the medical boards request perhaps they'll put a 5150 hold on him.

The Medical Board should yank his license based on what he prescribed to Michael Jackson for years!

Here's my take on this mess. Now keep an open mind. What do you want to bet that CM's lawyer is the one that is pressuring the medical board to do this. If he is successful he will use that info to try and have his conviction over turned.


I also think the ole Arnie falsely added more treatments to that bill he handed over to the court because he was going to produce it to the estate from payment. More treatment's means more money. I think most of those treatments he said he gave to MJ was what he was using for himself..

Dr. Klein is the father of modern cosmetic dermatology. He was a pioneer in almost every procedure currently used from Botox to Collagen injections. Stars from Hollywood to the former Prime Minister of Israel call him friend. Penny Marshal among others have called him a living breathing Leonardo Da vinci.

Dr. Klein has helped his good friend David Geffen and AMFAR raise over 350 Million Dollars for Aids research. Dr. Klein was the first Doc to diagnose Aids related skin cancer.

Dr. Klein was MJs friend for over 30 years. He was never charged with any crime. Dr. Klein after 3 years of grief and with his reputation and medical practice he spent his entire life building under siege from fanatics and trolls is of course going through tough times. If he seems distress try to imagine how you would feel if your entire life's work was being destroyed even though he has never been charged with any crime at all, much less been accused of any wrong doing in the death of one of his dearest friends.

Before you anyone judges Dr. Klein they should do more than watch some bogus YouTube videos. I have attached a link to his website. If you really want to know more about Dr. Klein try going to the horses mouth.

MJ didn't die from Demerol. CM didn't use Demerol on MJ. MJ knew about Demerol way back when his hair caught on fire.

---------------

$200.00 on MJ knew about Demerol when he started cutting his nose!

$300.00 on MJ knew about Demerol when he started bleaching his balls!

Luzifer, I think you should do your research before you talk.


Hint: Jason!
