Larry Birkhead Testifies In Anna Nicole Case

| Filed under: Larry BirkheadAnna Nicole SmithDrugsLegal Matters


The most anticipated testimony in the recent Anna Nicole Smith hearing finally began on Friday as Larry Birkhead, father of Anna Nicole's young daughter, took the stand against Howard K. Stern, Dr.Khristine Eroshevich and Dr. Sandeep Kapoor

Unlike Anna Nicole's former bodyguard, Maurice Brighthaupt, who took the stand before Larry and hashed out all the information he could, Larry surprisingly attempted to stay dignified and polite, answering questions as honestly and as straightforward as possible.

When asked about the drugs he could recall Anna Nicole indulging in, he replied with a list: “Topamax, Klonopin, Lasix, Valium and some sort of potassium pill. Methadone was a regular medication. I didn’t see Dilaudid. Vicodin was used throughout the relationship.”

He continued to explain that he suspected that Anna Nicole was taking extra prescriptions from two different doctors very early on in their two year relationship. He informed Dr. Kapoor of this theory, but nothing ever came of it.

He also divulged into the "working relationship" he now finds himself in with Howard K. Stern, though he recalls the times in which Anna Nicole was still alive, where things were "icy".

But mainly, Larry focused on the terrible quality of life that Anna Nicole endured during her detox from the massive amounts of drugs:

“She’d get up ‘to feed the dogs,’” Birkhead said of one of Smith’s middle-of-the-night awakenings during a detox visit, in which she imagined she was back at home. “The IV cart was still attached to her and I yelled, ‘Anna!’”

Larry will take the stand again today.

We have a feeling this will definitely go to trial, which will probably mean another year of this craziness.

So sad.

    I understand her "help" could have led to her death… but are we forgetting she was illegally doing all of this shit? I guess since she's dead noone gets mad at her… there's nothing they can do… Just like with MJ. the next best thing? Prosecute the ones who witnessed… Hahaha this is so fucked up. WARNING: Never light the bong for a friend getting high… If he dies you are to blame.

    She was surrounded by "yes" peeps. Everyone wanted a piece of Anna (no pun) and so you either said yes and enabled the behavior, or you were out. Just like with MJ.
    The most tragic thing about this whole mess is that all of these people who took advantage of the wreck of a human being that was ANS was that her son got taken out first. He seemed like a nice kid.

    it may not go to trial he testified today that the DA cornered him in a hall and tried to intimidate him. Hmmm can you say case dismissed due to misconduct and witness tampering

    What about the doctors that gave her the prescriptions?

    Lasix? Why the hell did she need a diuretic?

    Larry needs to stick it to Howard and those doctors from the witness stand. The vermin who allowed for aliases to be used in prescribing drugs and for drugs to be issued in Howard's name for Anna's use need to step up and receive their punishment. Obtaining drugs of that magnitude for a woman who was pregnant is indefensible. Whether they were trying to remain in Anna's inner circle to maybe collect from her bogus estate claim or not now they're just hoping to narrowly avoid long sentences in prison….what a reversal of fortune!
