King’s longtime manager Laverne Toney marched into court with a stack of letters from doctors assuring hizzoner the singer was getting the best care, in stark contrast to daughter Karen Williams, who came in empty handed.

As TMZ previously reported … King’s other daughter Patty filed a police report for elder abuse and burglary, claiming Toney and her assistant had fleeced King’s bank account to the tune of $20-30 million and also withheld medication.

No word on whether Karen will continue her fight.
