MJ Doc Suing Another Doctor for Defamation
The tangled web of legal battles surrounding Michael Jackson's death just got even more complicated -- MJ's dermatologist, Dr. Arnold Klein, is suing another doctor, Dr. Steven Hoefflin, claiming his character was defamed in the minutes following Michael's death, TMZ reports.
According to the suit, Dr. Klein claims Dr. Hoefflin told The Sun after Michael died, "[Dr. Conrad] Murray definitely called Klein because Klein taught him how to administer Propofol ... Murray would have counted on Klein to be the source of Propofol and guide him on its use."
Dr. Klein says Dr. Hoefflin's conduct was "willful, fraudulent, malicious, oppressive and reckless" and was done "with the intent to injure and harm Dr. Klein."
