In an interview just after Michael Jackson died, Dr. Conrad Murray told police he had no clue what medications the star had been prescribed by other physicians.
Murray also says Jackson never told him he was seeing other doctors – a clue as to how he may present a defense at his ongoing involuntary manslaughter trial.
Two days after Jackson’s death, Murray cited Dr. Arnold Klein, a longtime friend of Michael, as a doctor who regularly prescribed MJ drugs behind Murray’s back.
Murray, by his own admission, knew this was going on. But to what degree?

Dr. Conrad Murray took a walloping in court Monday after the judge threw out potentially key components of the embattled physician’s case that he is not guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson.
First, Judge Michael Pastor ruled that Jackson’s personal history, including all references to child molestation, will not be permitted during Murray’s trial.
Then, he determined that Jackson’s dermatologist and longtime friend, Dr. Arnold Klein, won’t be allowed to testify when Murray is tried next month.

Jason Pfeiffer, the former office manager for Michael Jackson’s friend Dr. Arnie Klein, is standing by his story that he had a gay affair with the singer.
Pfeiffer says Klein is trying to sabotage his credibility because Klein is afraid Jason will incriminate him during the upcomng Dr. Conrad Murray trial.
Jason tells TMZ he’s been honest all along about having a sexual relationship with the late King of Pop and is certainly standing by his story now.
Jason Pfeiffer insists, “The story is true. We had a relationship with sexual aspects, but I’m not going to make it into some grand loveMore >
Dr. Arnold Klein, Michael Jackson’s former dermatologist and close friend, has now changed his story about MJ’s alleged relationship with Jason Pfeiffer.
Pfeiffer, Klein’s one-time office manager, claimed last year that he had a sexual relationship with Michael Jackson, an assertion that Klein corroborated.
Klein said that Jason Pfeiffer was the only man Michael was ever intimate with, and that Jason was “the love of [MJ's] life.” Now? He says otherwise.

Charged with involuntary manslaughter, Dr. Conrad Murray will likely argue that Michael Jackson killed himself with a lethal dose of Propofol.
Even if that were true (and it’s a stretch), it still wouldn’t get Murray off the hook. The treatment he gave MJ was suspect for myriad reasons.
To that end, Murray’s lawyers just filed documents pointing fingers at none other than Dr. Arnold Klein – Jackson’s longtime doctor and friend.
Murray claims that Klein addicted Jackson to Demerol and other powerful narcotics. It’s part of his plan to establish Michael as a lost cause physically.
It goes without saying at this point, but Michael Jackson did not go out on a high note in 2009. Stress, desperation and medication were all taking their toll.
The star was so worried he couldn’t perform his 50 London concerts, he worried out loud that promoter AEG would cut him loose and he’d have nothing left.
To illustrate just how stressed out he was, he would wonder aloud if he, one of the richest entertainers in history, would end up working at McDonald’s.
NOT OKAY: Michael Jackson was exhibiting all the warning signs.

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 hisMore >
