It was only a matter of time before this happened. Larry Birkhead, Anna Nicole Smith's ex-boyfriend and possible father of her baby girl, Dannie Lynn Hope, has filed a lawsuit demanding a paternity test be performed on the child. Birkhead's lawyer Debra Opri told the AP that Birkhead filed the lawsuit because his attempts to communicate with Anna have been ignored. "The access had been cut off about the time of the birth of the child," she said. Opri also told the AP that Birkhead also has other concerns in regards to the child, "There are concerns about the health and safety of the child," Opri said. "These are things that will come out in court." Yeah, well I'm sure Howard K. Stern more or less challenging Birkhead to file a lawsuit during his recent appearance on Larry King didn't help things either.
Oooh, I have a feeling this is about to get very dirty. I heard on Good Day L.A. this morning that allegedly Birkhead wants custody of the baby if it's his and that he is also claiming that at one time Anna Nicole was taking Methadone (one of the drugs in the combo that killed Daniel) and that Stern was her hook up for it, alleeeedgedly of course!!!. Yeah, something crazy like that which you know I will be looking for more info on today. I still feel bad for Anna Nicole and her loss and think it's horrible that on top of that, she has to deal with this lawsuit from Birkhead. But saying that, this Birkhead guy got it in his head (he claims from Anna Nicole) that the baby is his. Seems that a lot of madness could have been avoided by just doing the paternity test instead of cutting off contact with the guy, no? But of course, this is Hollywood, not to mention, Anna Nicole Smith we are talking about and where that is concerned, nothing is ever normal.
