Stern to Birkhead: I Own You, and Your Little Girl Too

3/3/2007 5:05 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

As TMZ previously reported, it looks like Larry Birkhead is on his way to being crowned Dannielynn's daddy – but only if the price is right for Howard K. Stern.

As Stern continues to lose control of the whole Anna Nicole circus, he's pressuring the would-be daddy into making him look like the good guy.

According to FOX News, Stern has tried to force Birkhead into signing a contract saying they will appear side by side in upcoming exclusive interviews on "Entertainment Tonight," but Larry won't ink the deal. "Howard wanted Larry to sign so that it looked like ... it wasn't just Howard benefiting from these deals," a source says.

But TMZ has learned that is not the way it went down. Sources say Stern and Birkhead discussed a deal that would have benefited a trust for Dannielynn, but ultimately Birkhead wouldn't sign. Did Stern then cut his own deal? You be the judge.

Brooke and Brit -- New BFFs?

Brooke Shields, who suffered from post-partum depression, is reaching out to rehab-ridden Britney Spears, reports Access Hollywood. As TMZ first reported, doctors at the rehab center think that Brit may be suffering from post-partum, and Brooke agrees. "It really needs to be reckoned with," Shields says. "It's very common, and she'll get through it."

TMZ reported that Brit was spotted in rehab reading Brooke's book, "Down Came the Rain," about the subject. "I hope it's helping her," Shields says. "If it's not, and she wants to talk to someone, I'm available."

Is Angelina Pulling a Madonna?

Angelina Jolie is quickly moving forward on adopting a Vietnamese boy, and being a celebrity sure has its privileges. It seems that Vietnamese officials are turning a blind eye to the fact that Jolie has filed papers as a single parent, even though she lives with Brad Pitt and shares custody of her other children with him. "This is a clear contradiction of Vietnamese law, and such situations would not be allowed for other couples," international adoption advocate Tatiana Beams tells Page Six. "Most co-habitating couples who try to adopt as a single parent are either turned away from agencies or face difficulties."

Party Favors: Spielberg Hands Over Stolen Art ... Elizabeth Hurley Gets Hitched ... NYC Says No to the N-Word

A missing Norman Rockwell painting was found hanging in Steven Spielberg's office. The painting was stolen more than three decades ago, and purchased in 1989 by Spielberg, who didn't know it was stolen. ... Elizabeth Hurley and businessman Arun Nayar were set to wed today in western England. Guests will include Elton John, Kate Moss and Hugh Grant. ... New York City has symbolically banned the N-word. The City Council voted on the new campaign, which carries no legal penalties but hopes to curb the use of the word.

I do not believe the Bahamians "love" either Larry or Anna. They did not even know her. And from what I know of Caribbean people, they are very conservative in how people should conduct themselves. They would not have liked Anna at all. What they really like is that extra money that has followed Anna to their Island. And will continue to come if they can keep her buried there. Also, Larry is the least sullied of them all and they want him to be the father.

If we gave this much attention to the people suffering in Darfur, maybe our priorities would have a tad more integrity. If you want to do something useful today, read below:

I ask that all of you take 2 minutes and write a letter similar to the one I've written below. You CAN make a difference here. China pours BILLIONS of dollars into Darfur, and yet they do not use their influence to stop what is going on in the Sudan. Now you can make your voice heard. Write a letter (respectfully), and it will mean something.

As many of you know, my good friend Angie Voight (Jolie) has been working tirelessly to bring attention to the region. I hope you'll lend your voice. You may think your letter means nothing, but you're wrong. Write a letter. It'll take you 2 minutes. Use mine as a mock letter if you need to.

To The Honorable President Hu Jintao:

I write to ask that you use China’s influence to help stop the killings in Darfur.

You have the power to make a difference in the lives of the people of Darfur. You, individually, can make your place in history by being the man who stops the killing immediately in Darfur.

We all have our calling, and you have been given the gift of being a great leader. I hope you will use that power to save lives, as nothing else you do will ever be as great than saving the lives of these dying people.

What gets me is how Howard is trying to pull all the strings with the baby. What nerve he has. How Larry keeps from strangling is beyond me (?).
I give props to Virgie, too. She has alot more self-restraint than I do.

*Howard, you weasel!*

#22---I agree with all your comments about HK$, but you said you are a psychiatrist, and spelled the word very much incorrectly. Interesting.

Lisa( I pray for you dannielynn)    

Larry, do not sign anything coming from Howard Stern, he is the one who stole your baby and fled to the bahamas to avoid the paternity, and that in itself is suspuscious???
that would not have happened in the United States, You do not owe him anything, He owe's you everything, and everyone can see it.
You keep up the fight on this one Larry, You got him, he is cracking that is why he wants to implicate you in anything you may sign from him, He know's he stole your baby.
Do not sign anything that howard may ask you to sign, you will regret it. He is clearly only wanting the baby because of the inherintance, why else would he flee to a country that would condone his criminal behavior.
once paternity is established, I believe anna and her son will be exhumed and brought back to the united states to be buried in california that way she can be by the two people who meant everyting to her that is Her son Daniel and Mariylynn Monroe. she would have wanted people her friends and family to be able to visit their graves, as it is now, the only one who will visit is howard, which should tell people something.
Larry do not give up the fight for Dannielynn at all keep it up You will get her!!!!!!

Drama Continues!    

TMZ is using "Splash" pictures inside the funeral?

I'm sure Larry's Lawyer is on top of things with HKS, surely she wouldn't let a skumbag dish out the deal and have LB sign it. If Dannielynn is LB's, then someone on the judicial food chain will grow balls and brains and demand this paternity test be done ASAP!!! Enough already, in fact, I'll bet Maury Povich would love to handle this clusterf**k and hand down the results!!!
It's just so frustrating for us out here, because it seems like such a simple thing to get done, meaning the DNA testing, there's too many Lawyers in the mix. HKS needs to be a man and do what's right, how the heck does he sleep at night???

Yes, ET is slanted towards Howard Stern. I know they have a contract with him. But I'm wondering about Inside (Inside from CBS).
They are reporting the same garbage.

HKS did not steel Larry's baby! This is what ANS wanted why you loosers saying such mean things get a life

Oh come on people. Don't be so ignorant. TMZ will keep this story alive with their sensationalized headlines that are not necessarily factual. Stern CANNOT give the baby to anyone. He is the legal guardian and the court will determine, maybe, via DNA if Birkhead is the natural father. THEN there will be a paternity decision made.

So far, Birkhead has only asked the Bahama courts for DNA -- NOT paternity. Since the Bahamas do not recognize DNA in establishing paternity, then Stern remains the babysdaddy.

As bizarre as this story continues to be on it own, TMZ and other continue to make up S**t for the own benefit.

# 86 - JC,

Stern does not have a choice but to speak of Anna as the light in his life. There is nothing else he can do or say at this point, but to go out on a limb with rhetoric - maybe a few tears will save his ass. He is not stupid.

Anna's life started to deteriorate the day she got involved with this loving companion of hers. Look at the evidence that exists! Anna got fat, depressed, alienated from the people and life that she had. She wasn't healthy and happy, was she? How come? What was her Knight in Shining Armor doing to make her life better? Why did it get worse? And now she is gone. And Daniel is gone too.

I respect your open minded compassion for the under dog, but you and many others are falling prey to Stern's manipulative ways. - What else brought him fame and fortune? Nothing. And it will continue to reap him rewards as long as naive people (like Anna) believe that the tears are real and the intentions are honorable. Stern is a MASTER Of DECEIT. Gotta hand it to him - He's good.

Howard K. Stern is evil and the longer he carries this thing out the worse he is making himself look. He needs to do the right thing and give Larry his baby back immediately. Its better late than never - do the right thing!!!!

If you people on here want to bash TMZ and call them liars and such, then why are you reading their stuff and then posting here? ET has a wonderful website that is truly full of lying bullshit and adoration for Koward Gay Stern so go there and get your rocks off !!
