Arnold Klein denies giving Michael Jackson drugs, being the father of his children

Tbd-arnoldklein070909 Michael Jackson's dermatologist, Dr. Arnold Klein, has denied prescribing any sort of drug for the late pop star, or of being the father of his kids. And here we thought we'd get through the whole day without more MJ news.

"All I can tell you is, to the best of my knowledge, I am not the father of these children," Klein said on Good Morning America about those rumors, which first showed up on TMZ. "I can't answer it any other way. I don't want to feed any of this insanity going around."

Speaking of feeding insanity, he also says he had nothing to do with the alleged over-prescribing of drugs by doctors, which may have attributed to Jackson's heart attack.

"I didn't give him this crap they are talking about," Klein said. "I've never prescribed Oxycontin in my life. How am I going to prescribe Diprivan when I don't understand how to use it?"

He also said that he is not one of five doctors supposedly under investigation in California over those allegations.

"I am not even under any examination by the police as one of those individuals," he said. "I have not been examined by anyone. I have not been contacted by the police in Los Angeles."

So that should settle everything, right? Because whatever people say in TV interviews is obviously 100 percent the truth, right? Right?!?
