Dr. Arnold Klein — Michael Jackson’s long-time best friend and physician — has told TMZ he did not betray Jackson by claiming Jackson had a homosexual affair with Klein’s office manager, Jason Pfeiffer.
Klein and Pfeiffer were featured on “Extra” a few days ago, and during the interview Pfeiffer claimed to have had a romantic relationship with Jackson.
On Friday, Klein told TMZ that Jackson was gay and Pfeiffer was “the love of his life.”
