Dr. Conrad Murray to Challenge Jackson Family Lawsuit, Point Finger at Dr. Arnold Klein

by at . Comments

The embattled Dr. Conrad Murray is challenging a lawsuit filed against him by the father of the late Michael Jackson - and asking why another doc isn't a defendant.

Murray is going after Michael's longtime physician and friend, Dr. Arnold Klein, claiming Klein is at least partly to blame for the singer's untimely, June 2009 death.

As such, Murray says, Klein should be named in Joe Jackson's wrongful death lawsuit. MJ's mother and kids also filed suit against AEG, Michael's concert promoter.

Dr. Murray was on AEG's payroll, serving as Michael's personal physician at the time of his death. Conrad faces involuntary manslaughter charges in criminal court.

His legal declaration today comes in response to Joe Jackson's decision not to name Dr. Arnold Klein as one of the physicians allegedly responsible for MJ's death.

Murray claims: "Dr. Klein may have been medicating Michael Jackson up until or even beyond June 18, 2009, less than one week before Michael Jackson's death."

He also suggests he and AEG were protecting Michael from Dr. Klein, who "prescribed or may have over medicated [Jackson] to such point that AEG Live, LLC had to hire Dr. Murray in order to separate Michael Jackson from Arnold Klein."

Moreover, Murray says "AEG Live, LLC read Michael Jackson the proverbial 'riot act' to get him to stop subjecting himself to overmedication by Dr. Arnold Klein."

"The plaintiff [Joe Jackson] does not explain why, given these allegations, Dr. Arnold Klein is not a required party to be added to accord proper relief."

According to TMZ, he may have a point. Dr. Klein shot Michael full of Demerol - 51 injections in a 3-month span, right up until the week of his death.

Klein, on an unrelated note, is also rumored to be the real father of MJ's children Paris and Prince, and recently claimed that Michael Jackson was gay.

Dr. Murray also casts doubt on others who treated Michael, citing stories revealing that seven doctors other than Murray were fueling MJ with meds.

Murray's team also asked the court to toss the lawsuit altogether, claiming Joe Jackson doesn't have the right to file it, as he's not an estate beneficiary.

I believe Klein is a dog along with Dr. Murray. As for the claims, I do not believe MJ was gay for one bit. MJ is dead and anyone can say what they want because he is not here to defend himself. Also the guy who claim this with Klein seem uncrediable. I have seen "down low" men and MJ was NOT one of these kind of men (if Mj was gay, you would be seeing CREDIABLE men coming out by now even before death). To me, Michael wanted to stay a kid. As for his children, no I do not believe those are MJ bio children but Debbie offered to have them for him and MJ could not say NO to her (remember this man lived in a bubble and to expect Mj to act like Tyron Jackson down the street is being naive). I think both of these men should go down.

I THINK THERE IS MUCH MORE TO THIS STORY THAN THE PUBLIC IS TOLD. I AM SUSPICIOUS OF DR. KLEIN, & ALL THE THINGS HE SAID ABOUT MJ AFTER MICHAEL PASSED AWAY. WHAT KIND OF HIPPOCRATIC OATH DID THIS JERK SWEAR? THERE WAS NO REASON FOR HIM TO SAY THOSE THINGS ABOUT MJ'S KIDS PATERNITY, OR MJ'S SEXUALITY. IF KLEIN WAS A FRIEND OF MJ, GOD HELP HIM FROM HIS ENEMIES. EVERY THING I CONNECT WITH KLEIN AND HIS CLINIC STAFF COMES UP SMELLY. DIDN'T HE START TREATING MJ AROUND '85', AND ISN'T THIS WHEN MJ STRTING USING INCREASED ABMOUNTS OF PHARMACUTICALS? I BET HE WAN'T THE ONLY ONE WHO JUMPED ON THE MJ GRAVY TRAIN. MJ DIED OF THE GREED FROM THOSE SICOPHANTS WHO SUCKED HE DRY TO THE VERY END.
