Factor This: O'Reilly Sued Over Name-Calling Incident

3/15/2007 1:44 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Prince Frederic Von Anhalt, one of the men claiming to be the father of Anna Nicole Smith's baby, is royally pissed over a few choice words that Bill O'Reilly used to describe him on air, and now he wants $10 million to ease his pain.
O'Reilly Lawsuit -- Click to Read
In a lawsuit filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court, the prince says that O'Reilly called him a "fraud," among other things, during a February 23 broadcast.

Von Anhalt claims that O'Reilly "knew that the statements were false," and used them to "directly injure his reputation in a substantial portion of his community."

The prince is the 9th and current husband of Zsa Zsa Gabor.

A rep from FOX News tells TMZ, "We haven't received the lawsuit yet, therefore we cannot comment."

If yall don't mind me saying so but I agreed with Bill. My question is why did the Prince waited til after Anna Nicole is dead and gone to comes forward to claim he might be the dad???????????? Why didn't he do that while she was alive? Its sad when someone come forward and say something about it when she's not around to defend herself. This is ridiculous and I feel so sorry for Anna Nicole and her baby. If Prince got millions, he shouldn't be going after someone's money. GET A LIFE PRINCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

princess wanna be    

Jeez, when will all these come to an end. I am not a fan of O'reilly at all but why sue him when so many people called the prince wannbe a fraud openly. I guess it's all about going for deeper pocket. The fake prince sure wants publicity. He had his 2 minutes of fame when ANS died and now he wants to get another second of fame.

I hope the Prince sues O'Reilly's ass off. I can't stand the guy, or for that matter anyone on Fox News except Greta. It may be the #1 Cable News station but it sucks big time!! It's more like a televised "Enquirer"
