Michael Jackson's Doc Sued for Eviction

Dr. Arnold Klein -- Michael Jackson's doctor for decades -- has been sued for eviction from his Beverly Hills medical offices.

According to the documents, filed August 6 in L.A. County Superior Court, Dr. Klein failed to pay July rent, totaling $28,515.69. The lawsuit alleges the owners of the building gave Klein the first 5 days of August to make good on his rent, but the doc didn't, so the landlord sued for eviction.

But Dr. Klein redeemed himself. The landlord's lawyer told us Dr. Klein paid the back rent on August 10 and the landlord's lawyer will dismiss the case this week.

The L.A. County Coroner has requested files from Dr. Klein on Michael Jackson's treatments at his office.

No word on why the landlord was all business with a long-term client and moved so quickly to file legal papers.

As for Dr. Klein, we left word with his lawyer but so far no comment.
