The memorial service is over, but there are new twists in the investigation surrounding Michael Jackson’s death. “To the best of my knowledge, I’m not the father of these children,” Dr. Arnold Klein, Jackson’s dermatologist, told ABC News this morning. It was a strange response, provoking questions about Klein’s relationship with the biological mother of Jackson’s two oldest children, Debbie Rowe, who worked in Klein’s office for 23 years.
Dr. Klein will be a guest on Larry King Live tonight. Don’t miss the interview on CNN at 9pm ET followed by AC360° at 10pm ET. Randi Kaye is working this story for us tonight. A source tells her that Dr. Klein is on a list of doctors investigators want to talk with as they look into the cause of Jackson’s death. We’ll have the late breaking details.
There’s also word tonight that the Jackson family tried an intervention to get Michael to stop using drugs. Drew Griffin will have that angle.
Overseas, President Obama is meeting with the world’s economic powers in Italy for the G8 conference where the global financial crisis is taking center stage. Mr. Obama is pushing foreign leaders to deliver stimulus packages abroad, but back inside the beltway, he took hard hits today from GOP congressional leaders. They’re concerned the $7.87 billion stimulus bill isn’t working at home and scrutinized the White House for overstating its ability to “save” and “create” jobs. We’ll have the raw politics.
And outgoing Alaska Governor Sarah Palin said it herself: she’s not a quitter, but then what is she up to next? In her surprise announcement last week, she mentioned she’s resigning because of a host of accusations of ethics violations, which are costly and time consuming for her and the state. Tonight, we’ll look over those accusations lobbied at Palin.
We’ll also take you to Nashville, where police are calling the death of former NFL star Steve McNair a murder- suicide. Police revealed today that McNair was shot two times in the head and two times in the chest. Then they say McNair’s 20-year-old girlfriend Sahel Kazemi turned the gun on herself with a fatal bullet to her head. What might have led Kazemi to commit this crime of passion? And, keep in mind, McNair’s wife says she had no idea her husband had a girlfriend. Criminologist James Fox chimes in on this case.
We’ll have all this and more starting at 10pm ET. See you then!
