Deal, No Deal

3/5/2007 6:34 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Birkhead, Opri, SternLarry Birkhead's lawyer tells TMZ there will be no negotiating with Howard K. Stern.

Debra Opri says the only subject of negotiation is "how fast he [Stern] will produce the child for a DNA test and how quickly he will allow that child to go to California with her real father."

As TMZ has been reporting, Stern has been asking Birkhead for some involvement in Dannielynn's financial affairs after paternity is established. Now Opri says, "There were never any deals. It was a one-sided discussion."

Opri tells TMZ she did not want to respond to Stern's overtures until after the funeral. Birkhead's hardline stance now puts the ball in Stern's court -- will he submit Dannielynn for DNA testing or will the fight escalate?

INFO    

Anna told Larry Birkhead, that she would not submit to a paternity test. What would you all be saying if she were alive! It was her choice and not Stern's.

Birkhead is not Anna's choice and who says his the real father anyway, only him and apparently the majority believe it. Why, should Stearn go against Anna's wishes and maybe she told Stern he is the father.

Either way, Stern does not have to prove it unless the Bahamas courts say so.

INFO    

To Judy Lange

Anna hadn't seen her mother in over ten years, so how in that time could she possibly of known anything about Anna. Anna hate her mother.

You only have Larry Birkhead's statement saying he tried to save Anna from drugs. Firstly, he attested in court he was unaware of whether she was on drugs, he just assumed she was. Never at any stage has Birkhead been able to prove anything he has said about Anna. His actions towards her whilst she was overcoming pnuemonia and the grieving of her son are abysmal.

Get a grip, before passing ascertions, Birkhead is no innocent in the killing of Anna, it was him her pushed her over the edge.

For all those who believes that Howard K. Stern has the rights over Anna Nicole Smith baby should consider this: Anna was not in her right frame of mind and possibly misusing drugs
whether they were legal or illegal. Therefore she has no more rights as a parent as
the biological father. In the real world a drug abusive mother would have her child
taken away from her because of misusing drugs and the baby would go to the state,
legal guardian or possibly the biological father.

If Howard K. Stern feels that he is in a better position to have the baby because Anna
Nicole Smith put his name on the birth certificate. (Wrong) Do not forget the fact
that Howard K. Stern also was around and protecting Ana Nicole Smith and son. ????
But they are dead.

For those that are siding with Howard K. Stern ask yourself would you let him watch your baby knowing all of the alleged information. All the family & proclaimed friends could have helped Anna Nicole Smith during her most critical stages in her life and they did not.

Don't let friends and family members do drug and say you Love them.

The people here should stand together for the baby. If the Bahamas Courts don't want to do WHAT IS ONLY RIGHT IN OUR GODS EYES and that is give the baby to its real earthly father. Then lets stay out of their HELL PIT.We all know that this baby was Made in the U.S.A are court needs to stand up for this one. If you hit a woman with child on U.S soil and the baby is miscarried it is called a killing. So this baby was alive on our U.S soil. THIS IS OUR LAW. This baby has lost everything but its daddy for Gods sake do the DNA. Tell Howard if he gains the world and loses hes soul what did he really gain like Dannie N Anna his day Will come and he Will meet the Lord Our God the real Judge. Dont ask for forgiveness Howard you had a chance to make it RIGHT.

$tern calls himself an attorney, since when does someone have an
attorney as executor of her will which makes his duties to disburse
the estate to the heir Not for the lawyer to take over living in the
house!! $tern is wasting Dannielynn's inheritance squandering it on
unnessary legal fees how dare him! What kind of executor is that?
This man needs to be investigated and removed from the bar! Once Anna
died why didn't Howard STOP the transaction on the house Anna was
having remodeled and stop the purchase of that motoring yacht
Dannielynn would be served better with her money from those items in
the bank and not supporting $tern like her Mother did. Howard, Do the
Right Thing......Get that baby her DNA and unite her with her real Dad
and move on with your life.

HKS does not have to prove anything right now. Vergie and Larry are the only ones that have something to prove.
When all this stuff started ANS was alive and if you remember she said HKS was the father. I dont understand why everyone is giving HKS such a hard time this is what ANS wanted! (HKS to be the father)

Will anyone ever look or even care that these two very young people both died of unnatural reasons?, Needless to say Daniel had spoke with a P.I.? Annas mom had predicted trouble months before her death, Now Dannilyn is still and yet with the very person danny was in fear of and no one can seem to do anything about it? What exactly would we do if anything happens to this little girl, I'm scared the real question is what can we do?

rescue the baby    

The Bahamas know they are being CLOSELY WATCHED when they have TONS of emails, letters, and phone calls directly to them asking that they do the right things relating to the baby and the investigations. FLOOD Bahama with phone calls, letters, and emails! It takes people to open letters and emails, and answer ringing phones . . . those people will tell others about how the world is watching regarding the baby and investigations . . . they in turn remember Aruba (see scaredmonkeys.com or scaredmonkeys.net) and know that the world is quickly hearing about all the previous corruption in the Bahamas before and after Anna arrived (google Bahama corruption or similar (before), plus Anna Nicole and Gibson (after) . . . so the legal residents of Bahama may put pressure on their officials to do right for their future economy and reputation. The judges might be separate from the government (like in Aruba) but they should want their island's economy to prosper in the future.

This is not a call for a tourism boycott yet. It is a plea for Bahama not to make the same mistakes, so that their future tourism does not suffer. TOURISM is a KNOWN way to earn their money (the Marshall millions have been in courts for 12 years and is still being fought, so there may never be any money actually received). Let Bahama know the whole WORLD"s future tourists are WATCHING their decisions (actions and non-actions) regarding both the baby's CUSTODY and their INVESTIGATIONS !

Filming and laughing at a pregnant woman on drugs and not taking her to the hospital is horrid. Whatever went into Anna's system also went into the baby's and that should be a crime, not a "joke" as said on the tapes.
Kidnappers do not go free just because they bonded with their hostage (google "Stockholm Syndrome"). No, I am not calling Stern a kidnapper, but IMO he seems to be keeping a baby from it's biological families wanting (the control of the money for Anna's likeness, use of her name, future books, movie rights, etc. plus the possible Marshall estate) settlement arranged first ( Stern and Anna's lawyers' words).
It is also impossible to bond with a child you are not allowed to be with daily, so the biological families should not be penalized for not being close when they can not physically get close to the baby daily.

Bahama, please give custody to her biological families to raise in the United States for everyone's sakes. Both the US and Bahama, please do a great job on investigatigating Anna and Daniel's untimely deaths (and hopefully IMO imprisoning Stern and cohorts for something related to all of this). Please help to have custody of Dannielynn be given to her biological father or biological family.Her mother and brother are dead, both while being IMO with Stern and around all those drugs.

SEND your emails right now,
and when the offices open CALL the phone numbers.

Vigilante Justice    

HK$ without a doubt is a character right out of Charles Dickens's novel 'Oliver Twist', non-other than the lowlife 'FAGIN', the money grubber that robbed orphans and sets his associates up to take the fall for him in all his crimes. Maybe they should cast him in the next Broadway production......

Character description:
Fagin - A conniving career criminal. Fagin takes in homeless children and trains them to pick pockets for him. He is also a buyer of other people’s stolen goods. He rarely commits crimes himself, preferring to employ others to commit them—and often suffer legal retribution—in his place. Dickens’s portrait of Fagin displays the influence of anti-Semitic stereotypes.
