Birkhead: Howard Made Me Deny Being Dad

Larry Birkhead told the court in the Anna Nicole Smith case that Howard K. Stern bugged him relentlessly in May 2006, to deny to magazines and tabloids that he was the father of Dannielynn, even calling him "200 times" while Birkhead was working, to try to persuade him.

Birkhead said that he obliged Stern's request just to "get him off my back," but later sold photos establishing his relationship with Anna Nicole to reverse the media report and correct the record.
