Elizabeth Taylor, who like Dr. Arnold Klein was very close to Michael Jackson, and who like MJ was a patient of Klein, is slamming the doctor for his recent blabbing.
Specifically, about MJ's alleged gay affair with Jason Pfeiffer.
Not only did Klein back up his former office manager's account of an affair with Jackson, he flat out said Michael was gay, then said he didn't betray Jackson's trust.
An irate Taylor Twittered this yesterday, lambasting the dermatologist and noting the connection between Klein and other person with romantic ties to Jackson:
"Dr. Arnie Klein declared on May 2 that he did not betray Michael Jackson by saying publicly that he had a homosexual relationship with someone in Arnie's office."
"It seems he supplies not only women (Debbie Rowe), but men too ... how convenient."
There's no love lost between two of Michael Jackson's closest friends.
Not finished, Taylor added this stinger: "Just what we want in our doctors. And then to say he did not betray Michael's confidence. No wonder he has death threats."
"I thought doctors, like priests took an oath of confidentiality. May God have mercy on his soul." Rough, to be sure but the legendary actress certainly has a point!
Klein's defense of the comment was that it was made not to slander Michael, but show was not a pedophile. For what it's worth, Joe Jackson and Michael's bodyguards have also come forward to deny the gay affair story.
No comment from Team Arnie or from anyone in the federal witness protection program he may or may not have enlisted in during the past week.
