Joe Jackson is seeing red these days now that Michael Jackson's confidante and physician has come out publicly about the King of Pop's alleged sexual preferences. Dr. Arnold Klein (above left) has claimed that Michael was indeed gay and maintained a two-month sexual relationship with his office manager, Jason Pfeiffer (above right).
Klein told TMZ this past weekend that his "friend" Michael did not go to great lengths to hide his sexuality. Klein also insisted that he did not betray Michael, and in fact, maintains he only went public with the information to dispel any rumors of pedophilia in connection with the entertainment icon. Klein also revealed that Michael's relationship with Pfeiffer was the only gay relationship he has ever had.
Pfeiffer, who was interviewed by 'Extra,' claims that he did have a romantic relationship with Michael.
Joe Jackson insists, though, that his son was not gay. The still-grieving dad is livid that Klein betrayed his son's memory with such defamatory allegations. He tells TMZ:
"He has no respect for Michael … to say things about him when he's gone is shameful."
What's more, Joe cannot believe that Klein is so blatantly breaking all patient-confidentiality mores:
"He's a doctor and knows better than to break his vows against a patient."
Since coming out publicly with their accusations, Klein and Pfeiffer have had an overwhelming number of death threats The two men have hired security personnel to protect them.
While I don't condone violence, it is both unprofessional and inconceivable that they would breach Michael's privacy to smear his name. Whatever occurred while Michael was alive is his business. I don't know what Klein and Pfeiffer hope to gain, but no good can come of their dubious actions. Let Michael rest respectfully in peace.

That helps his image a lot since he was accused of molesting boys. ::)

Quick cash from news scoops and media attention maybe?
