Dr. Arnold Klein, Michael Jackson’s longtime dermatologist, currently under investigation, has banned his former nurse from his office.

Klein, sources say, has decreed that Debbie Rowe is not allowed in his office when he’s present. Last week, Rowe accompanied a friend to see one of Klein’s partners for an office visit. “Klein went nuts,” a source says.

Klein should be worried about Rowe. “She knows where all the bodies are buried,” an insider tells me. It’s possible that investigators, in fact, have already talked to Rowe about Klein’s involvement with Jackson.

It’s ironic too because for the last couple of weeks, various gossip sites and magazines (US Weekly) declared Klein the biological’father of Rowe’s children with Jackson. Nothing could be farther from the truth. A friend of Rowe’s laughed, telling me: “When Debbie heard that, she said it made her skin crawl.”

Meantime all the doctors in the Michael Jackson saga should start worrying: a hidden deadline is drawing near.

I’m told that LAPD Police Commissioner William Bratton returns from vacation tomorrow, August 5th, to hear a complete update about the various investigations.

Bratton, sources say, didn’t want anything to happen while he was away. But once he’s back in town, look for Bratton to push the start button on what ever arrests are to be made. This could be as early as tomorrow but more likely at the end of the week.

The doctors involved could be Dr. Conrad Murray, who stayed overnight with Jackson in his rented Holmby Hills estate and may have given him anesthesia to let him sleep; as well as the aforementioned Dr.’ Klein. As I reported here a few weeks ago, Jackson was visiting Klein’s office three times a week minimum just to be put to sleep for a few hours every afternoon. That’s why rehearsals were starting so late.
