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.

I'll say it again whether or not people want to hear it or admit it: MJ WAS A DRUG ADDICT! Don't you guys get that?? And he had a TON of perfect little co-dependents around him to supply him with his drugs, including Dr. Klein. Money talks!!
And, if Dr. Klein has nothing to hide, why is he pitching a bitch about being evaluated by a shrink?

Anyone remember that old TMZ interview right after MJ died, where Klein was slurring his speech and making no sense? Ya, something was off...

No Arnie Klein you're not crazy, YOU're INSANE! You belong in jail with Conrad Murray. Why don't you jump off a cliff.

Is it a cover up for a paternity test and/or investigation?


If it's a sanity or competence investigation all they need to do is hold up some pictures of MJ and say "how about this?"
Case closed.

Does the Medical Board have a reason for wanting Arnold to go through such a test?

THEY SHOULD HAVE TAKEN HIS LICENSE FROM THE DAY MICHAEL JACKSON PASSED. THIS DOCTOR WAS GIVING MICHAEL ALOT OF THINGS INSIDE HIS OFFICE WHERE WHEN COUPLE OF HRS LATER, HIS BODYGUARDS ** HAD TO HELP MICHAEL WALK TO HIS CAR. DR, MURRAY SOMETIMES DID NOT EVEN KNOW MICHEAL'S WHEREABOUTS. THIS DOCTOR WAS KNOWN TO GIVE MICHEAL DEMEROL SHOTS WHEN ASKED AND DR. MURRAY WAS NOT EVEN AWARE. IF DR. MURRAY KNEW ALL THIS, I AM PRETTY SURE THAT DR. MURRAY WOULD TAKE DRASTIC DECISIONS TREATING MICHAEL JACKSON.
PLEASE PLEASE TAKE DR. KLEIN LICENSE FROM HIM FOR GOOOOOOOOOOOOOD.

WHAT WAS THIS DOCTOR GIVING HIM??? WE WOULD ALL LIKE TO KNOW. IF DR. MURRAY KNEW WHAT WAS GOING ON, I AM SURE THAT DR. MURRAY WOULD HAVE TAKEN ** DRASTIC STEPS **BUT DR.
