I wonder if Dr Klein now has no money because MJ is no longer with us? When Michael died, I heard in LA that Dr Klein ripped MJ off big time with medication he didn't need! Strange that it hasn't taken long for Dr Ripoff to file for bankruptcy!! I'm sure there are a lot of people who miss Michael - he's no longer here for them to screw him over. RIP Michael you didn't deserve to be treated like that!

Having now lost his "cash cow", it seems that Klein can no longer afford his no-doubt lavish lifestyle. In my opinion, this "doctor" is very much to blame for setting MJ on the path which led him to his death, and is as guilty of unscrupulous behaviour as Conrad Murray. This is at least some justice - hope he never recovers! RIP Michael.

God don't like ugly & he sure is an ugly man. He took advantage of Michael even after he died, confirming those allegations that MJ was involved in a gay romantic relationship with his male employee. I guess the media-loids didn't pay much for those dirty vicious lies. He probably lost most of his patients after Liz blasted him for his scandalous lies. Karma baby!!! Luv you more Michael.

Well it's about time some of these crooks get their comeupance!! I believe that Slim Klein had a lot to do with Michael getting started on various types of medication and that he was key in ruining Michael's beautiful face. He and Conrad Murray have alot to pay for in the Jackson family and fans losing Michael!RIP Michael all those who wronged you will be brought to JUSTICE!!

I have to agree with most of the comments here. I do think that Klein, along no doubt with many others, took unfair advantage of MJ and contributed substantially to his problems.

That's what he gets for lying about Michael being gay. The only reason why he made that statement about Michael is because Katherine would not allow him to see Michaels kids...so he was trying to get back at her and the family. JUSTICE HAS BEEN SERVED HERE. This is only the beginning for those who took advantage of Michael.

canderson, baby thank you so much. I totally forgot about the fact that Katherine would not allow him to visit with the children, as well as that "Oliver dude", and they flipped on Micheal with the lies ( I donated sperm! Paris is the spitting image of my daughter). God is good all of the time & the Oliver dude's karma will come, as well as all of satan disciples that were devoted to destroying Micheal. Miss Jacquiline, where are you sweety! I expected to see your comments 1st! Hope you're doing wonderful. You know Micheal loves and appreciate you. You've been truely loyal to Michael. luv you more Michael, always & forever. HEE HEE ;.)

I don't like to say nasty or negative things about people, but if anyone has come across as unscrupulous it's this guy. I very much believe that he did not deserve to have Michael's trust or loyalty. He has done nothing since MJ died but try to make money out of telling tales that we have no way of knowing are true or not... but either way, the man has shown himself publically to have no morals.
