Dr. Arnold Klein, Rumored Biological Father, Wants Say in How Michael Jackson's Kids are Raised

by at . Comments

Now why would the late Michael Jackson's dermatologist want a say in how the King of Pop's three children - Paris, Prince and Blanket - are raised?

If you know what's already been rumored about Dr. Arnold Klein, it's not too hard to connect the dots here. A man's gotta look after his own offspring!

That hasn't been confirmed, of course. But acting on behalf of Dr. Arnold Klein, lawyer Mark Vincent Kaplan made a surprise appearance in court Tuesday to express his client's concerns at the Michael Jackson custody hearing.

Kaplan said he was there to represent Klein's interest in the "education, health care and welfare" of Jackson's two eldest children, Prince Michael and Paris.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff, who awarded Katherine Jackson custody of the three children and agreed to visitation rights for Paris and Prince's biological mother Debbie Rowe, said that Klein had no standing to object.

Klein is said to be the biological father of the children. He has never denied this, saying only that he is not the father "to the best of my knowledge" and even admitting that he was a sperm donor "at some point" if not to Michael directly.

These Us photos show how close Dr. Arnold Klein was to Michael Jackson and his kids ... but was it more than a friendship? His court maneuver yesterday suggests so.

Arnold Klein had objected to Katherine being awarded custody as per Michael Jackson's last will. But later, the doctor said in a statement via his attorney that he does not have any problem with Katherine Jackson taking care of them.

According to Mark Vincent Kaplan and co-counsel Bradley P. Boyer:

"Arnold Klein is merely acting on promises he made to Michael with respect to ensuring the long-term health and stability of the children and their ability to enjoy as normal of a life out of the spotlight as could be reasonably possible."

"Dr. Klein has always had a special relationship with Paris and Prince, loves and cares deeply for these children and is looking out for their best interest."

"Dr. Klein has been involved with the children in sharing holidays and other special events and wishes to have the ability to continue his involvement as a very close associate of their father and offers his guidance and protection forever."

The judge said Klein can file court papers pertaining to his guardianship concerns, and his legal team says it plans to do just that on September 1.

So Kaplan essentially explained why Dr. Arnold Klein wants to stay in the mix without actually explaining anything. For about $500 per hour, too.

Do you think Arnold Klein is the children's biological father?

If Michael was living today I would like for him to have removed himself from alot of people permanently.

Prince looks just like Arnold Klein. So I believe it. Also, he wanted input in two of the children. Not three. So I guess he is the dad. Why Michael didn't want his own kids, we will never know.

I've seen a photo of Dr. Klein when he was younger and he was very handsome.

This moronic excuse of a human being needs to sit his ass down. He IS NOT the biological father of Prince and Paris, and thus needs to shut up and let Katherine do her job. First of all, just for argument's sake, if he was the father, Michael would have made him sign a confidentiality agreement. That confidentiality agreement would still hold even after Michael's death. With that being said, Klein would not be going on talk shows saying, "To the best of my knowledge, I am not the father," because that just leaves a whole lot of room for speculation. He could have said, "No, I am not the father," and leave it at that. I agree that this dude wants some sort of monetary gain from this, a gain he will not be getting. I feel so bad that Michael Jackson had to surround himself with such scheming, filthy, opportunistic slim bags as some of these people who came out of the wood works.

michael knew his mother is a jehovah's witness, he was raised as one and knows that jehovah's witnesses do not celebrate holidays, and if this was such a concern for michael, he would not have left his children to his mother. and if mr. klein really has a "close" and "special" relationship with michael's kids,then he would have been named in the will, but he was not. he needs to shut up. he's not confirmed that he is paris and prince's dad because he is not, and by not confirming, he keeps himself relevant. as its been said before this sleeze-ball, drug injecting creep wants some of MJ's money and a little fame.

Arnold Klein may or may not be the father of the two older Jackson kids...but what he's really after is the $$$$$. Isn't everyone after a piece of the MJ Gravy Train?

I think I get what he's trying to say. he mentions being there for the holidays and special events. Katherine Jackson is a Jehovah's Witness and they don't celebrate birthdays, christmas and just about any other holiday. I think it's a good idea for Klein to make sure that they continue to enjoy such holidays.

Sure he's the father. Note that he only wanted input on Paris and Michael. Why not be concerned for Blanket? Only 2 of the 3 count? No. He's the dad of the 2 kids.
