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."

Dr. Arnold Klein, Michael Jackson's close friend, has come out swinging against Joe Jackson, claiming Michael's father is a guy who cares only about money.

Klein was responding to claims Joe made about Michael's mother and how Katherine was responsible for Michael's death when he told TMZ the following:

"Michael was very close to Katherine, but Joe talked to him too, but all Joe ever wanted to talk about was business. Everything Joe utters is nonsensical."

Pretty much.

Joe claims that he warned his estranged wife about Michael's failing health last year, but she was afraid of violating his privacy and refused to intervene.

Arnie has made numerous headlines in the past year, first as the rumored biological father of Michael's children, a rumor he has never emphatically denied.

Then more recently, he took serious heat for backing up former employee Jason Pfeiffer's claim that Michael Jackson was gay and Pfeiffer had an affair with him.

Now, however, the singer's confidant and former dermatologist is growing increasingly tired of all things Michael and wishes he could finally rest in peace.

Klein says he's over the drama: "I'm no longer interested in the Sodom and Gomorrah show on Havenhurst (the family home). My primary concern is the welfare of the children, especially Michael's, and the preservation of Michael's memory."

Amid reports (ones corroborated by a close friend) that Michael Jackson had an affair with Jason Pfeiffer, Joe Jackson is denouncing the notion that MJ was gay.

Joe, Michael's father, is royally pissed at his former best friend/doctor, Arnold Klein, for claiming MJ was gay and had a relationship with Klein's office manager.

MJ in Fear

Joe railed against Klein, saying: "It's not true. Michael was not gay. [Klein] has no respect for Michael ... to say things about him when he's gone is shameful."

Jason Pfeiffer was on TV last week, claiming he had a sexual relationship with Michael, and Dr. Arnold Klein spoke of walking in on the two men shirtless.

Later, Dr. Arnold Klein said matter-of-factly: "Was he gay? Yes."

Joe Jackson: Not a big fan of Arnie Klein.

Not only was Michael Jackson a homosexual, Klein says, he had no problem with people knowing ... which seems unlikely, as he shrouded himself in secrecy.

In any case, never one to miss a quotable opportunity, Joe Jackson went on, "He's a doctor and knows better than to break his vows against a patient."

Speaking of doctors who broke plenty of vows, how happy is Dr. Conrad Murray right now? A scandalous Jackson story that has nothing to do with him!

Are you buying it? Do you think Michael Jackson was ...
