Larry Birkhead: Raking in the Cash, Possibly Being Strong-Armed By D.A.

by at . Comments

Testifying at Howard K. Stern's preliminary hearing Monday, Larry Birkhead was asked if a prosecutor in the case tried to unfairly influence his testimony.

During cross examination, Ellyn Garafalo, a lawyer for Dr. Sandeep Kapoor, who is on trial along with Stern and Dr. Khristine Eroshevich on 23 felony counts related to the death of Anna Nicole Smith, asked Birkhead some interesting questions.

Namely, Garafalo asked if Deputy D.A. Sarah Slice cornered him in the hall last Friday and accused him of taking Howard K. Stern's side when he testified.

Larry Birkhead said the conversation did take place and he felt chastised.

Birkhead testified Slice suggested something was developmentally wrong with his daughter Dannielynn because of Anna Nicole Smith's history of drug use.

Outside court, Birkhead said Dannielynn was not only fine, some doctors have told him she's advanced for her age. She sure seems happy and adorable ...

Birkhead, Baby!

As we reported last week, Birkhead was highly critical of Stern in the wake of Smith's death, but the two later resolved their differences and get along well.

Perhaps to establish his motives, whatever they are, Birkhead was then asked what he makes from media outlets. He testified he's raked in about $2 million.

One can assume, given that statement, that he has been paid money to appear in photos and magazine articles with Dannielynn. Not judging, just saying.

It's all subject to your own interpretation. Some might say that makes him a horrible, exploitive father. Others might not. Hey, THG reports, you criticize!

The prosecutor was then asking about reality shows, until the judge jumped in ... "I don't care about that unless it has to do with a balloon or something."

No word on whether Larry's gonna be on Millionaire Matchmaker.

Thousands of people can judge the situation with Larry and his Daughter Dannielynn. That little girl is happy! She is being taken care of very well. Her Father does not abuse her. Most of all she is loved. No matter what happened in the past, what is most important is right now. This beautiful little girl will live in the shadow of her mom her entire life. Her mom may of made mistakes in her past, but I believe Anna Would be happy knowing her daughter is taken care of. Whatever Larry and Anna Had together, that is between them. It's very obvious there was something, or there would not be a baby out of it.

she is entitled to the money because she is the sole surviving heir of her mother Anna Nicole who won the money in the law suits

well, clearly larry made some sort of a deal with stern at the point where they "resolved their differences"...stern obviously gave him some money to shut him up...and he probably is still bribing him to testify in his favour... can't anyone see how evil that stern guy is??? are people blind??
and seriously, is it too complex for anyone to put the pieces together and see that he murdered her and her son with drugs?? he wanted her money, and he's still after it if he can manage to stay out of jail...
larry is not evil, but he sure isn't an honest man with justice in mind...he wants money too.

I think about life in a different way. I had kidney stones and was in the hospital for a week in July. I was freaking out thinking, If something happens to me, Dannielynn is by herself. I'm all this little one has left.
