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.”
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.
Michael Jackson’s father Joe.
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.”
