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."

Having said that, Bill O'Falafel-Boy deserves all the hassle that comes his way.

Nothing anyone says could discredit Von Anhalt, more than he has disgraced himself. He is a joke. He is the only one that doesn't realize it.

Prince doesn't have a chance due to the 1st amendment. And his lawyer is probably just taking the case for his money. In order to sue someone who has publically libeled you, you have to prove that the defemation has seriously hurt your reputation enough to affect your life, but most specifically your professional life. For instance, if the libel cost you your job, you could technically sue. In this case, nothing like that has happened for prince. Also, because he's in the public eye and is connecting himself to the Anna Nicole Smith story, he's purposefully thrusting himself out into the public sphere and therefore libel doesn't apply. Finnally, he's already been out in the public sphere for a while and so he's what's called libel proof, meaning that people have free range to say anything they want because they're attacking celebrities, politicians, etc. Prince's suit doesn't have a chance.

THAT BUY A PRINCE IS A JOKE AND A HALF. He is an asshole with his wife home at 90 having to hear he's slept around when she can do nothing about it. He is a ghoul and he's one who hasn't got class but bought his name. THE FAKE PRINCE BOUGHT AND PAID FOR WOULD SUE ANY OF US FOR MONEY .. must be getting low in his expenses that he had to say he could be the baby's dad from Anna Nicole. PRINCE I SAY TO YOU, THAT YOU ARE WANTING MONEY FROM ANYONE YOU CAN GET IT FROM. i didn't think O'Reilly said anything that wasn't true... but you are the one who decdided that when you made a fool of yourself from every venue.

That's freakin hilarious! I love O'Riley, he tells it like it is, and even though I don't always agree with him, you have to respect the man for calling the scum on being scum. This idiot comes forward amidst a paternity battle, mind you he's married, and claims that he can be this babies daddy too! And he thinks it was O'Riley that made him look bad...HA HA! This scum bag fraud loser cheating ass hole better not get a dime or I am moving out of the country! Whatever happened to those black guys trying to get $$ from Kramer, did they get any?
