Once a scumbag, always a scumbag!!!
It turns out that Michael Jackson's dermatologist has reportedly done his share of prescription peddling BEFORE he even graduated from medical school!!!!!
Arnold Klein, one of the docs being investigated for participating in Jackson's death, was forced to leave his first medical residency because he was selling prescription drugs to fellow students.
The hospital at the University of Pennsylvania, where Klein did his residency, agreed not to share the information with authorities in return for him leaving the school.
Klein left for the West Coast while telling his friends that he became engaged to a woman who lived in El Lay, although he never married. FYI: He's gay and big in the bear scene.
Shady Arnie finished his residency at UCLA, where he became Chief Resident of Dermatology in 1975.
Some feel that Klein may have been influenced by a book he cowrote, Drug Trip Abroad: American Drug-Refugees in Amsterdam and London, which was published a year after Klein graduated cum laude from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine.
It is believed that he obtained his drugs from Mexico.
“That book immersed him in the drug world,” said a former colleage. “It might have been the catalyst for what got him into trouble with the school administration.”
