Los Angeles: Michael Jackson`s close confidante and physician Arnie Klein, who recently claimed that King of Pop was gay, has said that he has received "a lot of horrible death threats."
Klein and his office manager, Pfieffer, were featured on the TV show `Extra` a few days ago, where Pfeiffer claimed to have had a romantic relationship with MJ, TMZ reported.
"Was he gay? Yes," Klein told TMZ on Saturday. Klein further said that his declaration was meant to shoot down the rumours that Jackson was a paedophile.
Klein further said that Pfeiffer`s two-month relationship was the only gay relationship Jackson ever had.
TMZ quoted Klein as saying that Pfieffer was MJ`s love of the life.
Michael Jackson died on June 25, 2009 at the age of 50 of a prescription drug overdose.
