The legal bell has tolled for two of Michael Jackson’s former doctors. TMZ is reporting that Dr. Arnold Klein, the King of Pop’s former dermatologist and rumored biological dad of Prince Michael Jackson, currently has a warrant out for his arrest.
Klein recently filed for bankruptcy, but has since failed to turn over 100 pieces of expensive artwork and a 2001 Ferrari Spider to the bankruptcy trustee. Now, the judge in his case has called for Klein to be arrested by U.S. Marshals and sent to prison. To avoid the slammer Klein must immediately turn over his expensive property, which includes artwork by Andy Warhol, Renoir and Toulouse-Lautrec.
In a statement to TMZ Klein replied, “It’s b*******, it’s fraud. Have them come arrest me.”
Since Jackson’s death in 2009, the questionable nature of Klein’s relationship with the music icon has come to light. It has been revealed that Klein injected Jackson with Demerol numerous times before his passing. The dubious doctor also used multiple aliases for Jackson when prescribing him medication.
In related news, Conrad Murray, Jackson’s former personal doctor currently serving jail time for involuntary manslaughter in his death, is making headlines again. TMZ is also reporting that the disgraced doctor will testify in Katherine Jackson’s wrongful death lawsuit against AEG.
After Jackson's death, Murray appeared in a documentary in which he said an AEG honcho told him, that Jackson was on “death skid row” and that AEG owned “the toilet paper he wipes his a** with” and the “f****** popsicles that his children are sucking on” and “if he doesn’t get the show done he’s over.”
Katherine Jackson is hoping that Murray’s remarks will prove to a jury that AEG was reckless with Michael’s life. She also wants to prove that the hiring of Murray is further proof of their negligence. It was the doctor's lethal and final injections of the anesthetic Propofol that ultimately lead to Jackson's death.
Murray is due to take the stand in the AEG trial in March.
