Michael Jackson's Doc

WANTED MAN

2/21/2013 11:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0221_arnie_klein_article_tmzDr. Arnold Klein, the dermatologist to the stars who was best friends with Michael Jackson and injected him with powerful drugs, has a warrant out for his arrest.

As you know, Klein has plummeted from grace after MJ's death. TMZ broke a number of stories, revealing that the Doc injected MJ with Demerol scores of times in the months leading to his death.  He also used multiple aliases for MJ in prescribing meds.

Klein -- who has now filed for bankruptcy -- failed to turn over more than 100 pieces of wildly expensive artwork as well as a 2001 Ferrari Spider to the bankruptcy trustee.

The judge has now ordered the U.S. Marshals to arrest Klein and send him to the federal pokey until he turns over the goods.

As for the artwork, it includes pieces by Andy Warhol (including the famous Marilyn Monroe), Robert Graham, David Hockney, Roy Lichtenstein, Claes Oldenburg, Renoir, Rodin and Toulouse-Lautrec.

Klein tells TMZ, "It's bulls**t, it's fraud.  Have them come arrest me."

Art is in the eye of the beholder, and the beholder is in deep s**t.

Finally!!! Put this s***bag to rot in prison and throw away the key!!! He may have MOST probably contributed to cause insomnia to Michael by administering him demerol, and the aliases were to keep secret Michael Jackson's medical prescriptions (it is a common use among celebrities), Michael Jackson was NOT a drug addict as also the Coroner reported and confirmed!!! Not to mention this dirty liar said so many lies on Michael Jackson in order to get money by using his name in the papers!!! Let this quack liar rot in jail with no appeal before he goes to rot in hell together with the quack disgusting murderer!!!!

As far as I'm concerned, he's not much better than Murray. They're both responsible for contributing to Michael's premature death!

I'm no fan of Klein.
If they arrested him for over prescribing Demerol I would be the first to applaud.
But bankruptcy?
According to Klein, his finances have been embezzled from him. He seems to have some evidence of this.
I smell a rat.

Klein belongs in prison more than Conrad Murray because he took advantage of Michael Jackson for many years and in many ways. Murray was a scared incompetent who ended up being on hand for the sad and inevitable conclusion of Jackson's life.
