Michael Jackson’s longtime friend and dermatologist, noting that he was not under investigation in connection with the late entertainer’s death, admitted to administering sedatives to the late King of Pop.
Dr. Arnold Klein told Good Morning America Wednesday that while he had sedated the musical icon for painful skin treatments to treat his lupus and severe acne scarring, he never gave the singer a prescription for the “crap they’re talking about,” referring to painkillers.
Klein, who said he treated Jackson three days prior to his death, said the singer was in great shape and spirits, even dancing in his office.
“No matter what he wanted, someone would give it to him,” Klein, who noted he was not aware of the entertainer’s alleged addiction to medications, said.
He said that any doctors who enabled the alleged addiction that might have caused Jackson’s death are “criminals.”
