Kapoor Excuse?

3/9/2007 1:34 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The doctor who prescribed Anna Nicole Smith methadone while she was pregnant is firing back at the man claiming that he's not cooperating with the investigation into her death.
Dr. Kapoor, Anna Nicole, Dr. Perper
After reports that the results of Anna Nicole Smith's autopsy were delayed by the medical examiner so he could examine additional evidence, an attorney for Dr. Sandeep Kapoor says he has nothing to add to the investigation.

Broward County Medical Examiner, Dr. Joshua Perper, had criticized Dr. Kapoor for what he says was the good doctor's refusal to cooperate with his investigation.

As TMZ first reported, Dr. Kapoor prescribed Anna Nicole methadone to her alias while she was pregnant. Ellyn Garofalo, Dr. Kapoor's lawyer, says that he has "been appropriately cautious about protecting the confidentiality of Anna Nicole Smith's medical treatment." She then calls out Dr. Perper, saying, "It's apparent that such caution is justified when the Broward County Medical Examiner makes public statements about a supposedly confidential investigation. The medical examiner's job is to determine the cause of Ms. Smith's death. Dr. Kapoor has no information that will help with that determination. Dr. Kapoor's treatment of Ms. Smith was at all times medically sound and he will continue to cooperate with any formal requests from authorities."

DR. KAPOOR ... ANOTHER RAT RUNNING FOR THE NEAREST RAT HOLE TO HIDE IN. THE FED'S NEED TO STEP IN, SEIZE HIS RECORDS, AND EITHER JAIL OR DEPORT HIM. ALL THESE CELEBRITIES THAT KEEP THESE "RECREATIONAL" DOC'S AND REHAB JOINTS IN BUSINESS NEED TO BE ACCOUNTABLE TOO. WE NEED TO CLEAN UP THIS MESS IN OUR COUNTRY!

The public and news media are a ignorant group of people. I mean common, give me a break. Have any of you actually got the facts about methadone? have any of you sat down with a recovering addict and talked to them about how methadone has saved their lives? methadone isnt this evil drug that you all think it is, it saves lives. ann nicole, being an opiate addict, did the best thing she could do for her baby and that is to get on methadone and stop using all of the other opiates. if any of you did your resarch and had any sort of compassion you would realize this. leave that Dr. alone. he did what was best for both of them. it was up to anna to do the right thing after that.

I'm certain HK$ can live a long time off all the money he's siphoned off from Anna over the years.

And I wonder what HK$ did with all ANS's jewelry? I guess Dannielynn won't be getting any Rolex watches...unlike Shane Gibson.

rescue the baby    

I have been following this case from day one on most of the tv stations and shows mainly because of worrying about the BABY. Anything that goes into a pregnant mother's body also filters into the baby so whatever the "drug" use is, the baby also received those same drugs and needs to have her development watched closely. It is sad and I keep wondering why they do not immediately remove this baby into protective custody for her safety and health.

It appears that ET (even stated in the probate hearing) is the "preferred" show for HKS and they are the ones that are spending the big bucks to show the "inside" stuff with HKS (inside the house, inside the funeral, inside the funeral tent, with HKS's friends, etc). Therefore lthough watching ET I also keep that uppermost in mind when watching their "slant" on this story, they slant towards HKS and probably somehow he IS receiving money from ET although it may be in 3rd party transactions or dummy corps like OJ did with his book deal.

Most of the attorneys for HKS/Anna, when you check their backgrounds, have close ties to HKS, including even the witnesses on the so called will, plus the administrators, etc listed therein. They therefore need to be investigated since it is also THEIR reps and futures on the line, especially Rales'. This goes the same for the doctors prescibing the drugs. I am not saying they were involved, BUT their involvement with HKS makes them suspect for what happened to Daniel and Anna, at least after the fact. Whether HKS used them or whether they were involved remains to be seen.

I heard on one interview plus I think in the court hearing that Ford mentioned "diaries and personal writings of Anna" that suposedly HKS had not read which Ford took from the house to save them, so maybe what the M.E. is waiting on is those diaries to see what Anna wrote and her state of mind the last few months.

Personally I believe that at the least HKS was an enabler to the point that he controlled her finances and probably filtered them for his own use somehow (or planned to). He probably never ever thought or figured in his plans that there would be a public seen world wide hearing like that of the probate which aired his face/body language/words/actions/films/etc. dirty laundry out to the public to see.

For that the public should applaud the judge. Whether you liked his style or not that judge TRIED to save the baby and make sure that at least some of the information on what was really going on was revealed and he CARED enough to stick his neck out to help. Without that trial, and the information from it, much of what HKS wanted hiden was publically shown as was his true colors.

I can not immagine going to a hospital carrying drugs to a pregnant mother to keep her on the drugs the doctors were trying to get out of her and the baby's systems. For that alone there should be an investigation and prosecution!

I do not know nor care if he did or did not love Anna because either way he used, abused, and ultimately contributed to both her and Daniel's deaths and the life time possible health problems of that baby.

I haven't even seen this "Marshall" Indian kid thing in a tabloid so they may not have anything to back it up but....it sure makes that inane Will make more sense....even the crazy Florida Judge said he had never seen such a will that disinherited all "other" and all "future" children ....maybe ole Howie was dumb like a fox when he had ANS sign that piece of garbage???

Oh, and that Ron Rale is retarded. He was on Larry King Live and stated he thought the baby was Howard's baby. I'd like to be this dummy a $1000.

ET should start distancing themselves from Howard K. Stern. The Howard K. Stern ship is sinking fast. ET, save yourself before it's too late. Moe has jumped ship. Hurry! You still have time to redeem your reputation. ET, jump the Howard K. Stern ship!!!!! You can do it!

tsk    

Seems very strange that they would name the kid Marshall, wasn't that her husband's LAST name? The one that she's been trying to get all of his fortune?

It's definately possible, it would explain the weird "will".

The photos of Dr. Kapoor cavorting with ANS just confirm was a quack he is. He is not a dignified, well educated doctor. He is a sleazy Hollywood doctor who will prescribe anything as long as he is well paid. No wonder he is not cooperating with the investigation. I am sure ANS is not the only celebrity client he has who pays him for drugs to support their habit. He has no ethics, no morals and certainly no class.

Mr. "FEEL GOOD" Kapoor needs to be locked up in JAIL w/ HKS !! He's as much a lying sack of shit as HKS !! Any Dr. who prescribes that crap to an 8 month pregnant woman and then tries to mask it by using a phoney name, does not belong in the medical society and his license to practice should be pulled !!!!!!!!!!! How many others has he done this to ???? He needs to be thoroughly investigated !! And will someone wipe the smirk off his face !!!!!
He's another one, who ought to be watching his back very carefully...He's a hated man !!!
He'll only be able to dodge the bullet for so long and then they'll take him down !! Have fun in JAIL KAPOOR !! God, he reminds me of those thugs down in Aruba that killed Natalie and got away with it !! He needs to be deported back to where-ever the hell he came from !! The kettle is BLACK...And BLACK is BLACK ! Get him out of this Country Fast or Put him in Jail...Just someone do something about that fairy face !

If Dr SanGAY Kapoor was really Anna's dr than he would cooperate and do what any CREDIBLE dr would to help in determining the cause of his patient's death.

He is just another jerk trying to save his own ass. Too Late, SanGAY. Her blood is on your hands just as much as Howard's and I have a STRONG speculation that you and Howard are more than just drug buddies.

It won't do him any good to shred shit. The pharmacy's will have all the scripts in their computer system. He is going to lose his license.

So how many people's lives have been destroyed or put into chaos by The Infamous Grifters (Howard & Anna)?

1. Daniel- Deceased
2. Anna, herself. Now Deceased
3. E Pierce Marshall- Deceased, the stress of the lawsuit or murder?
5. Shane GIbson- losing his job by fast tracking her residency and the racy pics
6. Dr. Kapoor- Will lose his license to practice.
7. The Unknown other Doctors prescribing her entertainment meds possibly will also lose their licenses.
8. MO for being a liar, never to get a job again due to his loss of credibility.
9. His wife, same scenario.
10. King Eric, his career to be ruined during an election year.
11. Brigette Neven, for being in the room as possibly just an innocent visitor.
12 The other visiting Dr. to her room, (sorry, don't recall her name) Why didn't she get help for Anna?
13. G Ben Thompson and the Shelly family, implicating them and trying to blackmail them, taking their house, accusing them of stealing, I have never seen a SQUATTER try to sue someone. That is just laughable.
14. Traumatizing little Riley and not letting her call her father. UNFORGIVABLE.
15. All of the other deceased that were laid to rest in the Eternal Garden of Peace, it's not so peaceful there now with everyone stomping over their graves.
16. The entire Nassau community for having to deal with the embarrassment and issues that Anna & Howard brought in their baggage when they fled there.
17. All the skanky attorneys (whos cares if their careers are ruined, but they did have the ability to make a living and paid for an education that will be worthless when this is over.
18. Anyone who had to get involved in Broward County and had no choice because it was their job, they are all being talked about negatively.
19. Larry Birkhead who has not had a chance to bond with his daughter (if she is his daughter) because Howard is holding her hostage.
20. And the most sickening of all, Dannielynn the innocent baby in all of this.

Lives have been lost, Careers have been ruined and more will be soon and for what?

GREED.

It's all about the money. Howard you can't pay anyone off with what you don't have and I am sure people are sick and tired of hearing I'll pay you when the case is won. Anna was just as guilty and greedy. Birds of feather flock together some one said in an earlier post and that sure is the truth here.

This is some of the most disgusting series of events I have seen. Let me know if I left any one out on the list of whose life has been destroyed. I think it's long enough, don't you?

SAVEDANNIELYNN!
