During the course of an interview on The Larry King Show on 8th July 2009, Dr. Arnold Klein alleged that Uri Geller had received a significant sum of money relating to an interview with Martin Bashir and Michael Jackson. Since that time representatives of Mr. Geller have provided us with documentation showing that Mr. Geller did not personally benefit from any monies that were derived from the interview program. Rather, at Mr. Geller's instruction, the funds were directed to a charity in his name. We apologize for this error and for any embarrassment it may have caused Mr. Geller.
The Los Angeles County coroner’s office has subpoenaed medical files and records from a number of doctors who treated the singer, as officials attempt to determine how the pop star died, sources have told The Times.
One source, who has seen one of the coroner’s office subpoenas, said it asked for “any and all” of Jackson’s medical records “including radiology and psychiatric records.”
An attorney for Dr. Arnold Klein, a Beverly Hills dermatologist who treated Jackson for nearly 25 years, said his client was among those receiving a formal request from the coroner’s office.
“It was a standard form subpoena and we turned over medical records to the medical examiner in response,” said lawyer Richard Charnley.
The subpoenas come in addition to at least three search warrants issued last week as part of a Los Angeles Police Department probe into whether prescription drugs played a role in his death.
