Birkhead's Ticket to Paternity

2/13/2007 4:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained a traffic ticket Larry Birkhead got while Anna Nicole Smith was pregnant, and it could be powerful proof that he's the daddy.

"I got a call from my pregnant wife, she's sick."



Rewind to April 15, 2006. Sources tell TMZ a pregnant Anna had just gotten into a fight with Howard K. Stern, who was expressing extreme jealousy over the fact that Birkhead was the father of the baby. Sources say Stern gave Anna an ultimatum -- him or me.

We're told an extremely emotional Anna, who was barefoot and four months pregnant, called Birkhead and asked him to meet her in the parking lot of the Sportsmen's Lodge in Studio City, Calif. near her house. A concerned Birkhead jumped in his car and sped over, only to be stopped by a Burbank cop.

The officer who issued the speeding ticket quoted Birkhead -- "I got a call from my pregnant wife, she's sick."

The ticket is significant because Birkhead's statement was a spontaneous reaction to the event and not in the context of a paternity battle. Debra Opri, Birkhead's lawyer, tells TMZ Birkhead referred to Anna as his "girlfriend" but the cop wrote "wife."

If Birkhead was "definitely not Anna's boyfriend" then why are there so many photos of them together, hugging, kissing, hanging all over each other, napping, etc.? Where are all the lovey photos of her and HKS?

I wish we could see the color of the baby's eyes up close to examine the color of her eyes. Both Larry and Anna have blue eyes and since it's a recessive gene they can only have a blue eyed child. Not brown eyed so far, the baby's eyes look dark, but of course pigment changes as she grows older.
If the baby has brown eyes she can't be Larry's.
No one likes being told what to do, even if you know you didn't do anything wrong and the last thing you want to do is abide by rules put on by someone else, especially if they are accusing you of not being someone's parent, or that you tried to kill someone. Once someone feels defeated that's when they usually cooperate.

#1 - I don't think you understand the significance of it. They are trying to show that Birkhead is NOT trying to claim the baby as is after the death of Anna, meaning he's not after the money....he actually wants his child. It also shows, that Birkhead was told from day one it was his child......to me it's proof enough.....then again I always knew it would be his.....Howard is trying to get a free ride on the money express train.

Howard the loser, did ya catch his Amazing Acting Performance during the ET interview? HOW FAKE, cry me a river Howard.....LOVED how you forced them tears to come out.....and so unreal how he was fast action to sell Anna's Death story....made some nice cash off her death.

I wouldn't be surprised if Howard K Stern is massively implicated in both deaths....death of Anna's son and Anna's death.....Too timely and too bizare

Anna Nicole Smith refrigerator what was in it and WHY:

Cyanocobalamin is a compound that is metabolized to a vitamin in the B complex commonly known as vitamin B12. Needle-Injection.

Gastric banding: Laparoscopic gastric banding: LAP-Band:
The idea behind the operation is to create a small pouch in the upper part of the stomach with a controlled and adjustable stoma, without stapling, thus limiting food intake.

A gastric band device is introduced through tiny (1cm) incisions in the abdomen and is placed around the upper part of the stomach. The resulting pouch (or the "new stomach") dramatically reduces the functional capacity of the stomach. The band has a balloon from the inside that is adjustable and can reduce stoma size, thus prolonging the period of fullness.

The operation is performed under general anesthesia and can last between 30 minutes and 1 hour. The Band is fitted around the uppermost part of the stomach, forming a 15cc small pouch. It is designed so that it can be inflated or deflated at any time after the operation. This helps the patient continually lose weight until they reach their goals. The restriction takes place in the radiology suite and normally takes 15 minutes. This simple procedure is painless they inject saline into a port placed under the skin in the wall of the stomach. The tube that comes off of the band leads to the port.

After you have this surgery or any gastric bypass surgery the patient will need Vitamin B12 injections for life. Also, you have restrictions on eating proteinâ%u20AC¦greasy fat meat is prohibited. The eating of fatty protein causes dumping syndrome in most patients.

Most patients need to drink there food to get the vitamins their body needs. Vitamins have a hard time being absorbed into the body after bariatric surgery; therefore the patients must drink and inject vitamins. Pills are not absorbed well and are not highly recommended.

â%u20AC%u0153ANNA NICOLE Smith was the life of the party backstage at Live 8 in July 2005
The buxom blonde's appearance at the concert at the Art Museum was her only known visit to Philadelphia. Victor Fiorillo was doing vodka shots with Smith at the Borgata's Gypsy Bar backstage and when Smith said she was hungry, Fiorillo, who was hanging out with sandwich mogul Tony Luke Jr., offered her a cheesesteak. "Damn, yes, I want a cheesesteak," she slurred, then Smith's assistant reminded her that she doesn't eat meat. Smith was with lawyer Howard K. Stern and her dogs, Frankenstein and Marilyn.:â%u20AC¦â%u20AC¦.â%u20AC

Anna had this surgery, lost the weight, went to Trim Spa, made a deal for money, all of the research I have done says that PerezHilton.com, TMZ.com and most other news agency have known of this from day one but have always been threatened with a law suit that prohibits them from talking about it. With out hard core proof such as the autopsy report, no one can make a claim ...yet...............

Feb. 12, 2007 â%u20AC%u201D a photo of the inside of Anna Nicole Smith's refrigerator shows vials of medicine, methadone and bottles of diet drinks, according to TMZ.com.

Everyone is so quick to bash Howard K. Stern but Anna choose to be with him and do that "commitment promise" ceremony. She didnt look miserable with him at all. Obviously something about Larry Dickhead turned Anna off. If she wanted to be with him, Howard didnt have a gun to her head, she could of been with Larry. I dont believe any of this is Howards fault.

Everyone knows that Howard K. Stern is not the father. That's why he doesn't want to take the DNA test. If he had nothing to hide, he would have taken it by now just to shut everyone up.

I don't understand what the big hold-up is... why is it taking so long to get this very simple test taken? That baby is an innocent pawn in this very sick, tragic situation. And if Larry is the father, then he should be able to see his own child. Imagine how you would feel if your child was being raised by someone else in this most critical time of bonding. Especially by someone as twisted as Howard K. Stern!

DIXIE63: What you saying? Not one of them will have access to the money for at least 21 years. By law, Danielynn is the sole heir to whatever money Anna was due to inherit. The courts will put that inheritance into a trust for her until she becomes legal age. You all rant and rave without understanding the law. The only one who understands the law is Howard Stern as he is a lawyer. The others who all think they will get a piece of the pie hadn't a clue that they won't see a penny until at least 21 years go by. Howard loved Anna, Daniel and the baby and does not expect to get the money for himself. He alone was in it for the love of Anna...all the rest of the uneducated, trailer park, money grubbing "friends and relatives" have grandiose ideas about how they will spend the money..what a bunch of losers!

How does that in anyway make his claim more significant? All it proves to me is that he is a LIAR!

just remember in all this craziness there were people that anna nicole smith did NOT want around Dannielynn - they include:

her mother Virgie Arthur - I believe the quote was "that woman will NEVER touch my child"
Larry Birkhead- I think it was anna who said he was a psycho stalker

so before we start giving her baby away- lets try to honor her wishes.
She put Howard on the birth certificate, she called howard the father. Why is it that now that she is dead all of a sudden everyone wants to go against her wishes?

Larry has done one thing right, I give him that. He got himself a bulldog for an attorney. Both she and her client seem focused and determined. I'm sure she's advised him to stay out of the media limelight as much as possible....so far, he's done fairly well at that.

Personally I think she has Post Partum Depression it explains her current weird acts    

Why dont you people watch the real news instead of the shit that TMZ makes up? They are nothing but a lying bunch and they keep putting info out there and you guys eat it up.

Then you idiots without brains says oh not it must be true and it proves Howards not the daddy. I proves the fridge was hers etc etc etc.

You are probably the same idiots who when buying their groceries also bought the tabloid magazines at the counter about aliens babies.

Wow those pictures on those magazines looked pretty realistic maybe I was wrong they were REAL alien babies with 20 heads.

I just hope non of you ever have to perform your civic duty and be on any jury. You guys are too dumb to think for yourselves.

He was not married to Anna and he lied. TMZ I dare you to show pictures and real biography profiles of the TMZ staffers who check their facts.

See there is a reason this is a tabloid site and not the real news.

America needs to clean up its act and TMZ needs to be shut down.
