Taylor Blasts Jackson's Doctor Amid Gay Rumours

DAME ELIZABETH TAYLOR has taken aim at MICHAEL JACKSON's former dermatologist DR. ARNOLD KLEIN for alleging her late pal was secretly gay.
The legacy of the Thriller hitmaker, who died after suffering a cardiac arrest last June (09), has been tainted by claims he led a double life behind closed doors.
Klein opened up about Jackson's alleged romance with his office manager Jason Pfeiffer, calling his employee the love of the late pop star's life in a TV interview at the end of last month (Apr10).
The skin doctor was then subjected to a mountain of criticism for betraying his late patient's trust as Jackson family members and friends of the King of Pop scrambled to refute the claims, while angry fans have bombarded the pair with death threats.
Now Hollywood legend Taylor has blasted Klein - a doctor she once shared with the King of Pop - for coming forward with the outlandish claims.
In a raging rant on Twitter.com, she writes: "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.
"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."
Debbie Rowe, a former assistant to Klein, is Jackson's ex-wife and the mother of his two eldest children, Paris and Prince Michael.

MS Elizabeth Taylor, My heart and sole commend you for defending Michael Jackson. He never deserved what he went thru years ago-I hope the money hungry people that sued him are happy with their BLOOD MONEY!!!!!! An easy way to make a buck and destroy a very humble and caring person like Michael. He gave so much of himself, to charities, to the children, to the fans, all he wanted was happiness and LOVE. I never gave up on him, I wish I could have reached out to him. To those that back stabbed him, I hope they get what they deserve. Much of us wish we could personally punish DR Conrad and others that were involved, that murdered him,that was planned to do before his trip to London. We would do more to help, but they don't listen to us. But they would you and many other stars like you, that could come forward, in MICHAELS DEFENCE!!! We wanted him back in our USA, we loved him, cherished him and miss him so very much it still hurts and is unbelievabe still!!! His children do not need the bulls..t that the tabloids say and the selfish greedy so called human beings say!!! I wish I had met him personally as you did, you were a VERY good friend to him. HE WAS NOT GAY, HE WAS SHY, Would it kill those tabloids and others to say GOOD things about him!! He always tried so hard to be excepted, his videos and music will live in my heart forever, I watch them all the time and I'm sure others do the same. There are so many great things about him, I could go on and on......I love you and miss you Michael Jackson, There will never, NEVER be another.....RIP, GONE TOO SOON!!!! Thank you Ms Elizabeth Taylor for your help, fire away at'em...God Bless You!! Michael needs you and other important people like you to speak up for him now, we can't do much, we don't have your power, where is Lisa Marie, Diana Ross, Cher, Brook Shields and others, speak out for Michael PLEASE!! We're the little people, we will do all we can, for Michael. Lets all do it, we can try together!! LOVE, Gail From Maine

Thank you Liz for blasting Klein ...you've been a great friend to Michael over the years & he loves you & appreciates you so much. I so appreciate you for comming to his rescue in the past with the media & always being there for him. I hear that it was you that recomended Klein to Michael back in the 80's. I hope that the world heard this & all his patients leaves him, since he has no respect for his patient's confidentiality. Klein your patient's made you rich & I hope they all leave you so that you can became bankrupt, alone & have to live with the fact that you betrayed your friend. I hope that you are tormented by what you've done for the rest of your life. You know that after all the pain Michael endured all his life especially by people he trusted, you should have been the last one to betray him this way. Shame on you Judas.

Ms. Taylor the doctor did not mention Jason; Dr. just stated Michael is gay. I understand your frustration though. Dame Taylor I did my share of blasting Jason. I didn't read the doctor mentioned Jason.

yes put him on blast!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! from ph njso what if they say he ws gay. they are trying to demerer his reputation as a father and a man. Let Michael rest in peace. i am not gay. there is a movement for gay marrage in this country. to legalize it. but why try to undermind, his stature of a superstar. by useing his legacy. and exploit him in death. this man is trying to be an acocate for gay rights. stating this at this time. if true why did he not publicize this while he was alive? i WILL TELL U WHY. HE WOULD HAVE BEEN SUID FOR SLANDER AND DEFACTION OF CHARATER BY MJ HIMSELF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
