It is a dispute pitting a man who takes pictures of famous people against one who makes their faces camera-ready. Arnold Klein, the Beverly Hills doctor touted as "dermatologist to the stars," has accused David LaChapelle, famed for surrealist portraits of celebrities, of the theft of a piece of his own art. The photographer admitted reclaiming his work — a depiction of Michael Jackson as Jesus Christ — but insisted he did nothing wrong....

Often in tears, Michael Jackson's ex-wife Debbie Rowe testified Wednesday that doctors seemed in competition to see who could give him the most powerful painkillers. “Michael had a very low pain tolerance, and his fear of pain was incredible, and I think the doctors took advantage of him that way,” said Rowe, the mother of the singer's two oldest children. Rowe spoke in a folksy, informal manner on the stand, coming across as someone who truly cared about the singer. Rowe said that dermatologist Arnold Klein took over Jackson's pain management but that plastic surgeon Steven Hoefflin would call the singer and say, "I have a better drug.

New laws: In the Jan. 1 California section, an article listing new state laws taking effect this year mistakenly included a measure that would have given employees the right to three days of bereavement leave within three months of a close family member's death.

For three decades, Dr. Arnold Klein drew the rich and vain to his Beverly Hills dermatology office. Trophy wives, industry bigwigs and A-list actresses glided through a reception area decorated with $1-million Warhols to have their laugh lines smoothed and their lips plumped. Presidential administrations came and went. Cassette tapes gave way to iPods. But in the eyes of clients, "Arnie" remained the same: Charming, immaculately groomed and as puffed up about his mastery of the Botox needle as he was about the jet-set life he enjoyed with star patients-turned-pals like Elizabeth Taylor and Michael Jackson.

The tall broad-shouldered woman was not amused by the afternoon's turn of events for two reasons, neither of which involved the tiny Band-Aid on her nose. Number one: Famed dermatologist Dr. Arnold Klein was very late to speak to her guests, the well-kept ladies in pastels who sat in a private dining room at Spago finishing up their warm Valrhona chocolate souffle cake. Number two: Klein had invited a friend and a reporter to "drop in" on his Oct. 22 lecture to the Music Center L.A. Alive!

Michael Jackson's longtime dermatologist and friend filed suit Monday accusing another physician with a decades-long relationship with the pop icon of slandering him in a British tabloid report about Jackson's death. In papers filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court, lawyers for Dr. Arnold Klein alleged that cosmetic surgeon Dr. Steven Hoefflin made statements to the newspaper that he knew were false in an attempt to wreck a rival's reputation and hurt his celebrity-studded Beverly Hills practice.

I've been reading the L.A. Times coverage of the Botox trial, and I cringed as I read every personal, private detail disclosed from Irena Medavoy's medical files that Gina Piccalo seemed to take great glee in reporting ["Stress Lines Show at the Botox Trial," Oct. 8]. I even felt sorry for Dr. [Arnold] Klein, because she told of his unfortunate [bladder] accident. I admire Medavoy for being brave enough to take on "Dr. Botox" and the billion-dollar drug company. To have your life an open book for the highest-paid sharks to feast on must have been as excruciating as the migraines she suffered.
