Michael Jackson's dermatologist sues another physician

Posted: 01:43 AM ET

By Harriet Ryan via LA Times

art_arnold_klein_cnnMichael Jackson's longtime dermatologist and friend filed suit Monday accusing another physician with a decades-long relationship with the pop icon of slandering him in a British tabloid report about Jackson's death.

In papers filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court, lawyers for Dr. Arnold Klein alleged that cosmetic surgeon Dr. Steven Hoefflin made statements to the newspaper that he knew were false in an attempt to wreck a rival's reputation and hurt his celebrity-studded Beverly Hills practice.

Hoefflin, a Santa Monica doctor with his own stable of rich and famous patients, and Klein are "competitors in a highly specialized and elite field which caters to a very exclusive clientele," Klein's attorneys claimed in the suit. They wrote that Hoefflin's comments in an Aug. 26 article in the London paper The Sun have caused "extensive damage" to a reputation that Klein has taken a career to build and that includes media-bestowed titles such as "dermatologist to the stars" and "king of collagen."

"Dr. Klein has been shunned and avoided. . . . [He] has suffered shame, mortification and hurt feelings," his lawyers alleged in the suit that seeks unspecified financial damages.

Drug Database Created after Michael's Death
Posted Sep 15th 2009 2:30PM by TMZ

Officials in California are now making it harder for drug addicts to get their hands on prescription medication - and they're citing Michael Jackson and Anna Nicole Smith's deaths as reasons why.

Attorney General Jerry Brown announced today that an online database has been created so doctors can keep their eyes on patients' drug records - making it easier for the docs to determine if someone really needs drugs ... or if they're simply desperate for a fix.

Brown explained the creation of the database by saying, "The recent deaths of Anna Nicole Smith and Michael Jackson have made clear to the whole world just how dangerous prescription drug abuse can be."

The database - called the Controlled Substance Utilization Review and Evaluation System (or CURES) - will be available to doctors, pharmacists and law enforcement officials.

Brown said it contains more than 100 million entries documenting controlled substances in California and can be accessed almost instantly.

Jacko's Peeps Can Moonwalk in Slovenia
Posted Sep 15th 2009 3:02PM by TMZ

Good news for the Slovenes - a judge has cleared the way for them to feast their eyes on Michael Jackson's autobiography, Moonwalk.

Michael's estate had asked the court for permission to publish the book in various countries throughout the world - and now, they got their wish.

In court docs, filed today in L.A. County Superior Court, the judge approved publication of the book in the following countries - Sweden, Norway, Italy, Spain, Japan and of course, Slovenia.

Congrats Slovenes - just don't spoil the ending.

MJ's Kids Watch Private Screening of 'Captain EO'
Posted Sep 16th 2009 1:45AM by TMZ Staff

Michael Jackson's kids just got to do something no Regular Joe has done since 1998 - they saw Michael's 17-minute, 3-D film "Captain EO" at Disneyland.

Sources say Michael Jr., Paris and Prince were taken to the happiest place on Earth (the one in California) last Thursday by Michael's brother Jackie. While they were there, we're told the kids were shown a screening of "Captain EO" - which the Mouse stopped playing in 1998 - and "they loved" it.

According to Disney blog MiceAge.com, the kids were able to see the movie because on Tuesday, the "Honey I Shrunk the Audience show was quietly closed, and Imagineers moved in with a truckload of equipment used to install the Captain EO show for a special executive presentation."

The blog says "Honey" was up and running again by Saturday - so you'll just have to catch "EO" on YouTube like the rest of us.

Jackson Probe Coming in for a Landing
Posted Sep 16th 2009 2:00AM by TMZ Staff

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ the Michael Jackson homicide case will be presented to the L.A. County District Attorney in 3 to 4 weeks.

We're told the lion's share of the investigation has been completed and Dr. Conrad Murray remains the singular target. Our sources say LAPD detectives have requested opinions from several medical experts who will analyze the evidence and offer their opinions on Dr. Murray's conduct.

The medical experts are supposed to submit their finding in 2 to 3 weeks and we're told detectives need an additional week to assemble their evidence before they make a formal presentation to the D.A.

Law enforcement sources also say an arrest will not be made before Dr. Murray is charged with a crime - of course that assumes he will be charged.

The case is complicated by the fact that Jackson had been taking various medications, even though the evidence is compelling that Propofol was the direct cause of Jackson's death.


Dodie ~ California   September 16th, 2009 2:22 am ET

Hey! You doctors, stop doing this. You are taking my written Sitcom and using it in real life! Did you read my script? Now I will sue both of you!!! lol

Samantha - South Africa   September 16th, 2009 2:36 am ET

I thought that the charges will be in the form of 'joint liability' and brought against all the doctors who have been prescribing medication to Michael over the years.

Anyways,I just hope that those who are involved are brought to justice and that that the main culprit Dr Quack will hopefully be NAILED and JAILED in the next few weeks!


Lori - Justice For Michael   September 16th, 2009 2:47 am ET

Samantha – that might happen later – multipled doctors could be charged criminally for "prescribing to an addict" or other irregular prescribing practices along with dispensing pharmacies. Law Enforcement has indicated for a while now that Conrad Murray was the only doctor they were investigating for possible criminal involvement. Guess we only have 3 more weeks to wait now and maybe we will finally learn something.

JUSTICE FOR MICHAEL


Susan62509   September 16th, 2009 2:55 am ET

Hi Everyone:

"Klein has taken a career to build and that includes media-bestowed titles such as “dermatologist to the stars” and “king of collagen.”
AND MAY I ADD "Queen of Diprivan".

"Klein has been shunned and avoided. . . . has suffered shame, mortification and hurt feelings.” AND MAY I ADD that his hurt feelings now are nothing compared to what's waiting ahead for him. He'll soon be out of business completely without a license.

Good bye Klein.


Susan62509   September 16th, 2009 3:03 am ET

If Klein is the supplier of the Diprivan, and Murray did call him the day MJ stopped breathing, then Klein could possibly be tried as an accomplice with Murray. If so, Klein's penality could be equal to those of Murray's in the legal system. I'll have to keep my fingers crossed for that.

Luckily, the LAPD have traced all Murray's phone calls that day, so they already have the answers to the lawsuit.


Sheletta   September 16th, 2009 3:06 am ET

Dr Klein just looking for more money, that way he won't get eviction papers again. Klein, knows that he part of the reason some of the prescription found in Michael home was by him, and because another Doctor' states that and maybe more about klein now he wants to sue. WWell is everyone looking forward to Oprah W. show today/tommorow? I am will love to see what she has to say about Michael. I know I watch her show today with Whitney H. and Oprah asked her how she feel about Michael’s death? Whitney reply that she was very very hurt, and that her and Michael had been friends for years. She even had teart in her eyes.

What he really should be thinking about is going to jail. Also, why would Jerry Brown set up a database for patients and prescription drugs when they should monitoring the Doctor who write the scripts and the pharmays that fill them.

I thank that Doctors should also be monitor on how much of a certain prescription is written to their patients. It's should state why they need so much and limited to how many prescription that a person can get especially if the drug can cause you to become depended on it.


Toni   September 16th, 2009 3:08 am ET

Well, lets see, didnt a lone cop say that Murray was going to be arrested in less than 2 weeks like 1 month ago? I'll believe it when it actually happens.

There must be a second chance in life, for Oprah's show in this situation... I don't no... mixed feelings...and for me she was for many years a role model ( I am connected to a womengroup and some orphanage children in Kenya, their lifes are changing for the better),
A second chance for Michael Jackson...yes, he is murdered.
The media is quilty.
There is nothing to say what brings him back, his music exists and in many other ways he was an example.
But where was his second chance?


Maureen (UK)   September 16th, 2009 6:08 am ET

Klein
I don't think Klein had anything to do with providing Propofol.

We fans are shooting ourselves in the foot if we keep repeating this rumour. MJ didn't take Propofol on a regular basis, so it's adding fuel to the fire by saying Klein was involved in this. The Sun is a Uk tabloid & is not worth reading.


Brigida, Italy   September 16th, 2009 6:32 am ET

The book is from 1988, yes, but such books weren't published in Eastern Europe before 1990. And for any book to be translated in other language and published in a certain country, a specific contract is needed. Not everyone buys books in English from Amazon.

yes, I have to admit I love the idea of these guys worried about their careers being ruined.

Hey, my Dad was stationed in Indonesia with the Dutch army in 47-49. He was near Medun – He had lots of photos. He did his tour because he thought it was his duty to his country, but he went to Canada when they tried to make young men do a second tour. He refused to fight in a war he didn't believe in. My Dad was a conscientious objector before the term was even invented.


Marin-indonesia   September 16th, 2009 10:08 am ET

@ MaryRM- really? And your father have a lot of photo when he was in indonesia? Did he tell you that indonesia also a very beautiful country ? Well thanks maryRM, for those nice kind of thought about the war, yes our people suffered a lot back then, but I guess we also learn a lot :). Give my big hug for you and your family.

Maria   September 16th, 2009 11:17 am ET

@ Sherry: I hate to post the same thing again, but maybe you didn't read all the comments on LKL since yesterday.

For everyone who discovers a site which invites people to leave messages “for MJ” and leave their e-mail addresses:

Always check for the identification elements: contacts – admins – tech support – “about us” section. A suspect site never says who its founders and admins are and never provides a valid e-mail address of the owner. NEVER give your e-mail address to such a site.

I checked this “messagetomichaeljackson” site on whois.domaintools.com and it was registered by a woman from Ukraine. Why there’s no identification element on the site? It’s easy to see that the “weird” message no.1 is a bait planted there for curious visitors, nothing more.

The death of MJ was and is a blessing for all kind of scammers ans spammers on the net: people who want to collect easily an e-mail database for future spams, to spread malware, to collect donations on behalf of false foundations, to pretend to sell fake merchandise or simply to make money by attracting traffic.

If you google “michael jackson scam”, “michael jackson scammers”, “michael jackson spam” and “michael jackson online fraud”, you’ll find out more. Please, inform yourselves on that, it’s very important.

When I first heard Murray's message I though he was talking like MJ... seems I'm not the only one... now I've been trying to find out who made the site.. but each time I try to download another page of that site I get an error... I was wondering too who made that site... it seems new...

It's funny 'cause this morning their saying the investigation will end soon, last night I heard La Toya say: " You know they say when we die our spirit is gone, well Michael's spirit was not gone, he was still here"

And this morning, I read Tito said : "I forgive dr Murray."
Now you find this message....
Something is going on.... I don't know... but....


Maria   September 16th, 2009 11:24 am ET

Not to mention that it's ugly and weird to launch a site in memory of MJ and forbid people to say RIP. What kind of fans are such people? Not even the death hoax sites dare to impose such rules.

Hi!
The new German version is already out, I got mine today and it is in fact different from my 1990 English version. I quickly checked in the Swiss Online shop where I bought it and it says that the English version is available only in October 09, publisher is Random House Inc.,
EAN: 9780307716989, ISBN: 978-0-307-71698-9 (can probably help)

The blurb says:
"This is the only book about life that Michael jackson ever wrote. He chronicles his humble beginnings in the Midwest, his early days with the Jackson 5, and his unprecedented solo success. Moon Walk details his songwriting process for hits like "Human Nature", "Beat It", "Rock With You", "Bille Jean", and "We Are the World"; describes how he developed his signature dance style, including the Moon Walk; and opens the door to his very private personal relationships with his family, including sister janet, and stars like Diana Ross, Berry Gordy, Quincy Jones, Paul McCartney, and Brooke Shields. This is a new edition of the original 1988 publication. It will include a new introduction from a well-known figure in the entertainment industry who was close to Michael and an afterward from Publisher Shaye Areheart who was, along with Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Michael's original editor at Doubleday. A belly band will highlight this new contenet."

Perhaps Disneyland is also afraid of backlash. the ultra conservative element in the U.S. has become very vocal and they use intimidation at every opportunity. If EO was brought back, you can bet they would scream and do everthing they could to embarrass even the happiest place on earth.

Hello Everyone:

Reading some of the comments here since I am not receiving comments in my email any more (not sure why), anyway I was reading a comment about tito/murray could you please provide me that link. Other, Klein needs to get some jail time also, after all he help with prescription too.


Samantha - South Africa   September 16th, 2009 2:58 pm ET

Just visited Oprah's website which has some video clips of her talking about Michael's vitiligo and how she felt before interviewing him in 1993.

I've to say that I have rather mixed emotions regarding today's show as this will be the first time in almost 3 months that Ms Winfrey would be publicly acknowledging Michael and its only now that she is boasting all over her site about the fact that the 1993 interview was the most watched interview in television history yet given this record breaker,she did not even include let alone even mention it in her 20th Anniversary edition,was Michael not 'worthy enough'????

Furthermore,I believe that Oprah thinks Michael is guilty and its just a shame that she has let tabloid garbage influence her opinion so to say!I betcha she might say that she was on a cruise when she received the news or some excuse along that line but then come to think of it,I think Oprah was on cruise when the verdict was read out on 13 June 2005 because she seems to remain OBLIVIOUS to the fact that Michael was INNOCENT & EXONERATED on all 14 counts!!!!

Anyways,lets just see whether the show will do Michael justice but nothing would annoy me more than having Oprah talk about certain aspects of his life since she has basically shown little or no regard for Michael over the last few years!


Cocovelvet   September 16th, 2009 3:11 pm ET

Hi everyone,

I see things are really beggining to take a very interesting turn.......... now instead of the doctors being investigated and possibly charged, they are pointing a finger and suing each other !!!?????

I've been somehow buffled and interested to know infact where the facts of these allegations by Dr. Hofflien came from. Can anybody who have a bit of knowledge on that one update me coz I've probably missed on that. Actually, I've been wondering how Hofflien himself got to know that Klein was the one who taught Murray about propofol. Isn't this allegation a bit strange on its own ???


Barbara   September 16th, 2009 3:14 pm ET

Confusing indeed!


Sheletta   September 16th, 2009 3:14 pm ET

Sarah: Thank you for the Link. Now from what I read, the police is asking the family not to talk about the investigation publicly because it can tip off dr murray defendence team. Also, seem that the investigation has something up their sleeve that is not being reveil, as much as they letting out. To asked the family not to discuss the cast means that the Jackson are aware what the investigation is about. The article talk about a few months, well I am hoping it get done soon as possible. So let's pray this case is coming to some arrest soon.

Samantha: Oprah is up too something. Yesterday, she asked Whitney what or how she felt about Michael's death? Whitney had tears in her eyes while talking about Michael, but what I want to know is what is Oprah going to say would it damage Michael image more or will she talk about something positive.


TJ   September 16th, 2009 4:55 pm ET

With Dr. Arnie Klein suing another doctor, the case is heating up. This murder investigation is like a very big sting operation for the LAPD. with all the shady doctors who enabled Michael Jackson. I believe this case will be a long time investigation because of the fact the LAPD want to make sure all their T's are crossed and all their I's are dotted.


Luda   September 16th, 2009 5:00 pm ET

Cocovelvet : now instead of the doctors being investigated and possibly charged, they are pointing a finger and suing each other !!!?????

Do you know why???
They are afraid!!
They protect their rears.....


Luda   September 16th, 2009 5:06 pm ET

TJ,

It will be long, but the wait will be worth while.....


Lori - Justice For Michael   September 16th, 2009 5:16 pm ET

They need to round them all up; and make them all face the consequences of their actions. All it takes is for one of them to start talking and then the whole pyramid will begin to crumble...

Lori - Justice For Michael   September 16th, 2009 6:03 pm ET

Hi Angelwings, long time no see. I said Hi to you on one of the other blogs, but I am not sure if you saw it. I should have written myself a post it note so I could remember which one it was. LOL

JUSTICE FOR MICHAEL


Mary U from Ohio   September 16th, 2009 6:05 pm ET

Tmz article says that 3 to 4 weeks... they could arrest Dr. Murray.. and up to 7 weeks around the time of This Is It.. comes out..... I wondering if there is ever going to be an arrest... I like to hear What TI would say.....


angelwings   September 16th, 2009 6:07 pm ET

Hi Lori how are you?? I just get so sick of all the crap about micheal geeeeeeeeee wish they would do some thing its been to long


TJ   September 16th, 2009 6:24 pm ET

Luda–Even if it takes a long time..the wait is very worthwhile. We all want to make sure that the criminal or criminals will be thrown in the slammer for what they did to MJ. The movie "This Is It" looks like an excellent documentary film during MJ's final days before his demise. I can't wait to see it.


Lori - Justice For Michael   September 16th, 2009 6:24 pm ET

I am fine, thank you. 🙂 I know the waiting for some news of the investigation has been horrible. Even some kind of a status report from an "official" source on the record would be something at least.

JUSTICE FOR MICHAEL


Lori - Justice For Michael   September 16th, 2009 6:32 pm ET

@TJ –Yes the "This is It" does look like it will be excellent from the clip I have see. I hope I will get to see it. I do have to say, that the poster for it absolutely creeps me out. I think it is the spotlights shining out of where the eyes should be....

JUSTICE FOR MICHAEL


angelwings   September 16th, 2009 6:34 pm ET

yes Lori but i dont think that day will come


Luda   September 16th, 2009 6:37 pm ET

TJ, Lori!

Yes the poster is wonderful !!!

can't wait to see the movie!


TJ   September 16th, 2009 6:47 pm ET

Luda and Lori–Yes, Michael already knows that we are his devoted fans who can't wait to see the film "This Is It"! He must be grinning from ear to ear like a Cheshire cat! Heh..heh..heh!!!


sarah   September 16th, 2009 6:51 pm ET

in the movie trailer, is MJ doing that back flip on stage or one of the dancers its look AMAZING.........

FANS OF MJ FROM PAKISTAN!!PEACE!!!


Lori - Justice For Michael   September 16th, 2009 6:53 pm ET

@TJ – I told my kids that I wanted them to get me tickets for the movie for my birthday...so hopefully....

JUSTICE FOR MICHAEL


TJ   September 16th, 2009 7:24 pm ET

Lori–Not a bad idea! That's a wonderful birthday present since your kids know that you are a devoted Michael Jackson fan! I hope they will follow through with your birthday wish!! Got to let me know!!! By the way, how much are the tickets???


Californian dweller   September 16th, 2009 7:38 pm ET

dude.. why didn't ppl do this for michael. fricken dermatologist man.. michael had it worse than you


sheila   September 16th, 2009 7:38 pm ET

I just don't understand why Arnold Klein won't stop MIchael Jackson for all this surgery. This is a big question mark to me and he never tell Him to stop................why and why


Kara   September 16th, 2009 7:40 pm ET

what the hell... people need to stop trying to continue to make money off of this man.


Judie   September 16th, 2009 7:42 pm ET

Sheletta   September 16th, 2009 8:05 pm ET

Did anyone watch Oprah show today about Michael?


Sheletta   September 16th, 2009 8:09 pm ET

She show clips of that interview and commented on it. Only thing she said if she knew back then what is happen now, she would had let him finish what he wanted people to remember about him in death. I expected her to do more but she did not.


sherry   September 16th, 2009 8:18 pm ET

I watched Oprah,he was so shy and so devoted to giving.She annoyed me a little at 2st kept saying this interview was b4 the molestation chargesect,,,,,,,,,,,,that bugged me a little


chris   September 16th, 2009 8:21 pm ET

Not impressed but not surprised with Oprah's show. I won't be watching it any more. She just gave her impressions of the interview with MJ that happened 16 years ago. All she mentioned was her feeling that he was talented, sad & lonely. Whop-dee-do!
The thoughts about his talent were just quickly mentioned – nothing about naming the hits, lyrics or reasons why MJ in his own genius stratosphere.
No mention of the witchhunt or the media / public's instant misjudgement of him. No compassion.
No mention or questioning that unconventional behaviour does not mean immoral behaviour.
Personally, I think it ticks her off that MJ will always be more famous and beloved than she will be.
Not impressed. Maybe someone else will do a genuine tribute. More than 1 hour is needed, otherwise things are just glossed over.

This was just a show to ATTEMPT to appease MJ fans.


Sheletta   September 16th, 2009 8:28 pm ET

Sherry: I got that part too. Like even though he was not guilty, just the thought of it stay in her head.

Chris: She seem like there was NO effort in talking about Michael. I felt she needed to do more then what she did, frankly I thank she just did that small part so that no one would say she was not fair. She mention that she would or could had been his friend, that is not saying much. Actually, it was a waste of time waiting to see what she was going to do about Michael, because all she done was reply that interview which I am sure we all have seem.


Judie   September 16th, 2009 8:36 pm ET

At least Madonna did it right!


Luda   September 16th, 2009 8:39 pm ET

Burt Reynolds has checked himself into a rehab clinic...
Do you think they will bash him?

NO!

But if it was Michael , you can be sure he would be drag in mud....


Lori - Justice For Michael   September 16th, 2009 8:44 pm ET

@TJ –I still have no clue how much the tickets are going to cost. I am a little scared about that... my fingers are crossed that it will be in the budget.

JUSTICE FOR MICHAEL


sherry   September 16th, 2009 8:46 pm ET

I cant find ticket prices or cost or even location the official web site wont load for me


Judie   September 16th, 2009 8:48 pm ET

Lori – Justice For Michael,

Mabey you could file a lawsuit too! Make a post-it note about it.


Lori - Justice For Michael   September 16th, 2009 8:49 pm ET

@Luda – of course no one will bash Burt. Of course Burt was never as huge a star as Michael.

JUSTICE FOR MICHAEL


MaryRM   September 16th, 2009 8:51 pm ET

am I wrong or are all the 'seriously bashing Michael' shows all on NBC?
Court TV, ET, The Insider....

Oprah is also on NBC. Do you think she was muzzled or told 'we can destroy you if you step out of line'.

just opening a discussion.....

Okay but even if Informer doesn't speak...it would be nice just to have him pop in and say 'hi."


sherry   September 16th, 2009 8:54 pm ET

I know,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,it is emotional though


marin-indonesia   September 16th, 2009 8:54 pm ET

I think dr klein is not the only one who want to save his reputation, oprah did it too.. In a different way of course.

: marin-indonesia @
I totoally agree with you, she seemed to be very involved in herself,,,,,,,,,,not saying thats a bad thing,she was just very focused on "her preformance"


Barbara   September 16th, 2009 8:56 pm ET

The thing is, if the Informer came in just to say hi, I would be more inclined to believe him.

Otherwise, if he wanted to get a rise out of us, he could feed us inaccurate, made-up stories. If that was his goal-someone who is bored who wants to freak out a bunch of MJ fans.


lex   September 16th, 2009 8:57 pm ET

oprah is on abc not nbc


sherry   September 16th, 2009 8:58 pm ET

like believe him as in Michael is still alive?
not bashin just trying to understand


sherry   September 16th, 2009 9:00 pm ET

lex,,,,,,,,,where i am Oprah is chanel 5 and thats nbc


Barbara   September 16th, 2009 9:03 pm ET

At this point, I am unsure Sherry. And believe me, I am a person who needs solid facts. I am just so unsure....


sherry   September 16th, 2009 9:05 pm ET

@ Barbara
I totally understand


Barbara   September 16th, 2009 9:07 pm ET

Nothing is consistent, so many twists and turns, my heart wishes it to be true and I guess I will just have to wait and see.


Lori - Justice For Michael   September 16th, 2009 9:08 pm ET

@Barbara –I think a lot of us are in the same boat....and hoping it does not capsize

JUSTICE FOR MICHAEL


GINNY FROM GEORGIA USA   September 16th, 2009 9:10 pm ET

DR. KLEIN DESERVES TO FEEL ALL OF THOSE NEGATIVE THINGS. I HAVE NO SYMPATHY FOR HIM OR ANYONE ELSE I THINK MAY HAVE BEEN INVOLVED IN THE MURDER OR KILLING OF MICHAEL. LONG LIVE THE ONE AND ONLY KING OF POP JUSTICE FOR MICHAEL


Barbara   September 16th, 2009 9:15 pm ET

For me, it's the suspense.

In the beginning (right after June 25th) I was so sad. Then TI came on and gave me some hope. "Maybe it's true" I thought.

Then we heard nothing. Then the burial. Then the death hoax videos. I started to believe again. (No offence to those who feel Michael has passed on-please) Then the blog comments about it being impossible for him to do this-then the Informer again.

My biggest issue is not knowing and I am going crazy thinking about "what ifs."

I know a lot of us are going through the same thing.


sherry   September 16th, 2009 9:17 pm ET

Barbara
we are,,,,,,,,,,,


Lori - Justice For Michael   September 16th, 2009 9:17 pm ET

It's the "what if's" that keep a person up at night imagining the possibilities....

JUSTICE FOR MICHAEL


Judie   September 16th, 2009 9:24 pm ET

Mabey if we got a little more of the truth then we can put some of the pieces together. Too many puzzle pieces missing.


Judie   September 16th, 2009 9:25 pm ET

and a lot of em don't match


Luda   September 16th, 2009 10:20 pm ET

I just finished watching Oprah... she was talking alot about herself how she reacted to the interview at the time...
she kept repeating: "there were no sexual accusation yet..."

It was getting on my nerves... why refer to it again & again... when the man have been found not guilty?

I'm glad they showed the part when Elisabeth was there talking in a positive way of Michael...
He was so shy... so sweet...


Barbara   September 16th, 2009 10:22 pm ET

I wish that Oprah or Liz would have given Michael a chair though! lol


MaryRM   September 16th, 2009 10:51 pm ET

you can find the whole interview on youtube, I watched it again a couple of weeks after michael died. But it can be difficult to find an active link because Harpo productions keeps cutting them. but the 1993 interview is really worth watching in its entirety, not just clips, I think it was 90 minutes originally airing but that was including commercial time.


MaryRM   September 16th, 2009 10:58 pm ET

the blog police are out in full force – they took away my link to the oprah interview. anyway, on youtube search enter:

oprah at neverland interview

and you should be able to find it.


simba   September 16th, 2009 11:08 pm ET

“Dr. Klein has been shunned and avoided. . . . [He] has suffered shame, mortification and hurt feelings,”

Gee, Arnie – do you think it could be because you went on LKL and, in clear violation of confidentiality laws, revealed every detail of Michael Jackson's medical history?


Lori - Justice For Michael   September 16th, 2009 11:24 pm ET

@Simba –or maybe it was because he showed up at the court and tried to insert himself into the custody matter. Poor Uncle Arnie – he must be feeling the affects of self-prescribing.

JUSTICE FOR MICHAEL


marin-indonesia   September 16th, 2009 11:25 pm ET

Simba: yes! Good words.. I agree with you

If oprah doesn't sure enough about michael's innocent, why she have to make such a lame tribute show? I don't understand,


denise   September 16th, 2009 11:45 pm ET

MaryRM

here is the site for the book we are look for gettextbooks dot com, it's available 🙂


MaryRM   September 16th, 2009 11:46 pm ET

I think Oprah was being controlled by NBC. Like I said before it is too strange a coincidence that the shows that are still bashing Michael are all on NBC including ET and The Insider.

also you asked what my Dad thought of Indonesia – he thought it was very beautiful. I have a perpetual calendar in my powder room that has pictures that were taken during his stay there. they are black and white but you can still see how beautiful it is. I also inherited 3 wood carvings from him. 2 busts a man and woman with headdress and a full statue of a woman in what looks like fancy traditional clothing. they are beautiful.


MaryRM   September 16th, 2009 11:50 pm ET

here is the part of the Povich rebuttal documentary that shows Karen Faye. You can put the below in the search engine on youtube because they keep deleting my link here

The footage you were never meant to see-michael jackson prt 9 documentary

I think there is more of her talking on part 2. She seems very protective of Michael so he did have some good people in his life....


MaryRM   September 16th, 2009 11:52 pm ET

I forgot to add – that at 4:14 in part 9 you see clearly her affection for him.


marin-indonesia   September 17th, 2009 1:18 am ET

MaryRM: ow! you must see Karen Faye kiss and hug michael on the making of ghost. it's so sweet. you can find it on youtube 🙂


Sheletta   September 17th, 2009 2:32 am ET

Well, it is good to see all og you are in agreement with the Oprah so call feelings about Michael. All, I will like to see at this point is that Michael death be brought to Justice. I don't care if its Murray, Klein and Tohme this case need some closure.

Now, even so if the LAPD, is asking the family to not make comments in public about Michael dealth or investigation means to me that the LAPD knows something or even more that actually happen to Michael on the sad day June 25th.

Murray, well seems like he is in hiding, hoping that the LAPD will overlook him and he can go to the next celebrities are maybe accidentally kill them as well.

I know this may sound harsh, but Murray is Guilty and I feel that are trying someway to get him off the hook, form over injecting Michael.

Hi Denise
Yes. It was what u wanted to know, right?


Maria   September 17th, 2009 5:12 am ET

I read uncle Arnie's twitter (awkmd) and his blog (awk2009 wordpress com). What it's there is astonishing... on many levels!
A sample from a letter of support from someone, posted by Arnie on his blog: "It is my sincere hope that YOU prove to be the genetic Father of these beautiful, brilliant children, and that they have the privilege of your presence fully in their lives." wtf?????


Maria   September 17th, 2009 5:41 am ET

And how easy is to blame everything on the media when you hear something that you don't like. Klein posted on his blog a statement from his lawyers in which they deny media reports that he hasn't been cooperating in the investigation. But this wasn't a media rumor, it was from the LAPD detective's sworn affidavit.


denise   September 17th, 2009 8:31 am ET

Allure
Yes, it was....thanks so much 😉


mariau   September 17th, 2009 10:04 am ET

Dr. Klein and Dr. Murray should go to jail.. they were Greedy and irresponsible doctors. they should ashame to themselves.. Dr. Klein using this issue of to hide his ass..
Michael was addicted to precription drugs medication because of his greediness... Klien prescribed Mj in a high dosages of drugs for pain killer or more.. He was responsible to Mj's death..
