Michael Jackson may be in a coffin, but according to his former doctor and his alleged lover, he's coming out of the closet. He may be out of our lives, but the King of Pop isn't out of Jason Pfeiffer's heart. The former dermatologist's assistant - yes, THAT dermatologist - went running to tabloid show Extra with his big gay claims about MJ. Arnold Klein, Jackson's dermatologist, backed up his allegations that Jackson was gay - or at least bisexual. Pfeiffer claims that he and Jackson carried on a "passionate and sexual" affair until the day he died on June 25, 2009...at the hands of his cardiologist, allegedly. Dr. Klein told Extra that he walked in on the two while Jackson was shirtless. "When you see two people looking at each other you know what's happening. I was just very happy for both of them," Klein said. The odd couple allegedly bonded over their difficult childhoods, according to Pfeiffer: "We were just sitting there and we both started to cry and I got up and went over to him and said it's going to be okay Michael... We hugged. And it was kind of then that the hug was a little bit more. It wasn't until a few months later that it was obvious that Michael had feelings for me as well." So why the posthumous queer-ies? "Setting the record straight and telling the truth, as opposed to hiding in some house in the middle of nowhere... I think he would have approved of that, yes." We're guessing Pfeiffer approved of Extra's compensation for the story.
