Dr. Arnold Klein Sort of Denies He's the Biological Father of Michael Jackson's Children

by at . Comments

The identity of the biological father of Michael Jackson's three children has recently been questioned by tabloids suggesting that Dr. Arnold Klein, an openly gay man and a well-known dermatologist for the wealthy, is their actual dad.

Today, Dr. Arnold Klein made his first (non) comment on the subject when he appeared on Good Morning America and cryptically deflected the question of paternity.

"I can't say anything about it, but ... to the best of my knowledge, I am not the father of these children," he told Diane Sawyer. "I can't answer it in any other way. I don't want to feed any of this insanity that is going around."

"I will tell you one thing: These are brilliant children and I want them in no way to be harmed. These are wonderful, fabulous children who he loved deeply."

To the best of his knowledge, he is not the father?

If he's not, how would there be any doubt, and if he were, why not just say so? Sure, it would be scandalous, but it would be honest and no one would really be that shocked. Besides, people would stop talking about it sooner, right?

Klein was first reported to be the Jackson kids' biological father last week by Us Weekly. He also denied (more convincingly) providing Jackson with sedation drugs.

"I've not been examined by anyone. I've not been contacted by police in Los Angeles," he said. "I've given him medication, yes, but you could take all the medication I gave him in a year right now, and nothing would happen to you."

"I don't want to discuss the way I treated him. I did not give him this crap that they are talking about. I've never prescribed OxyContin in my life. How am I going to prescribe Diprivan when I don't even know how to use it?"

As he told reporters when he was tracked down last week, Dr. Arnold Klein recommends harsh punishments for doctors who enabled the late icon:

"I can and will say that anyone who makes someone into an addict, or gives a person potentially dangerous substances directly to them to use is a criminal. It becomes nothing more than a manslaughter or something worse than that."

However, when the physician saw Michael Jackson just three days before his death, Jackson showed no warning signs of drug-related trouble.

"He was having no trouble sleeping in my office, OK?" Klein said.

"He was not in terrible pain when I saw him. He danced in the office and he danced for my patients. He was very, very happy and dancing."
