Anna's Drug Use

2/21/2007 6:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The judge in the Anna Nicole case has just said he will ask questions about Anna's drug use. Stern just testified Anna "was on prescription medication at different times." The judge asked if she was abusing drugs. Stern replied, "Look I'm not a doctor."

Stern then testified that Anna had been in rehab. He said, "Anna Nicole took prescription medication, mostly for depression."

Stern said, "It's not like Anna was medicated all the time. It's not like she couldn't talk."

The judge just asked about the video FOX obtained that TMZ published, and Stern said "That's the way Anna talks. There are times she was more impared than that." The judge then jumped on Stern and said, "What do you mean more impared than that." Stern said he didn't mean she was impaired.

Stern acknowledged Smith took methadone, "but not in my presence over the last five months." She acknowledged Dr. Sandeep Kapoor in Los Angeles prescribed it. TMZ first reported Kapoor prescribed methadone when Smith was 13 days before giving birth. Kapoor prescribed the drug under an alias.

Stern also acknowledged Smith was taking Dilaudid, a powerful painkiller.

This story is partially incorrect. Stern did not atteppt to leave the stand and "was called back by the judge". He conferred with his attorney away from the microphone and returned of his own volition. Please report the story correctly if you are going to report it.

Will everyone stop about the clown video? Haven't you all ever said something jokingly? I don't think HKS released this video and made money off of it. If he were actually planning to do so, I doubt he would've said it on tape.

Was she taking the Topamax while pregnant? Cause I was prescribed that medication for my migraines before I became pregnant with my son and I clearly remember it stated on the bottle not to use if pregnant. Then again she was probably using much stronger drugs while pregnant.

They should have the toxicology report by now and know exactly what drugs she was on. I think the judge is giving him rope. Howie boy keeps grabbing that water pitcher. There ought to be epithelial cells from the handle of the pitcher of the chair arms to test. Nail that bad boy to the cross!!
