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."

Wouldn't the prince first have to find at least one person who thinks he is not a fraud?

Bill is just as much a "fraud" as the Prince guy. As for Bill being the #1 show on cable, where does Gina get her information? Bill, how come you haven't claimed to be the father? Even Anna Nicole had standards!!!

Fox news is fair and balanced.The left doesn't like it because they try and spin it in their favor. I will continue to watch the number 1 news channel in the country.For all you Factors fans the word for today is dither.When liberals watch Fox news they tend to dither.

I don't understand why Prince von Anhalt is suing Bill O'Reilly and Fox News Network. What is his problem? I am a fan of Bill O'Reilly and Fox News Network. He should take care of his wife Zsa Zsa Gabor at home and leave the medias alone. And if he said he might be the father of Anna Nicole's daughter Dannielynn? He should kept low profile talk with his lawyer about he might be the father of Dannielynn and his10 years affair with Anna Nicole before jump into the medias last month. I feel so sorry for Zsa Zsa what she has to go through and she should kick him to curb.

Bill should not have called him a fraud. That is slander, because he does not know if the prince had been with Anna. I say pour it to him, Prince. He will learn to keep his mouth shut on things he doesn't know about!

Jill, you're a first class liberal asshole! Go sprew your garbage on NBC or MSNBC. Fox News is rated number one for a reason and you cry-baby liberals/left wing radicals can't stand that there is actually a news channel that isn't controlled by liberals so that you can force feed your views on everyone anymore!
So typical.......you're an Oberman fan!!! Now there's are real class act.....NOT!
All he does is spew venom and attact Fox to try and up his ratings, which btw isn't working.

The bottom of each page show's it's a Breach of Contract template that Lee & Fields used, which just goes to show what amateur hacks he's hired - sloppy, sloppy, sloppy. Notice the lawsuit doesn't use the word "slander" or "libel" (show transcript prints), nor even mention anything about the Prince's life - sloppy, sloppy. Personal Injury and Suing Bill O'Reilly are their specialties. I smell a contingency deal a mile away! Ha ha (cough) ha!

I've noticed even on Court Tv they've been very careful in what they've been saying lately. Maybe they have all along.. I don't know but, I haven't noticed it lately. I can totally see the other parties in this case to start to go after people for slander and other things such as this... I wasn't expecting Von Anhault but, it's just a sign of things to come..... I can just see it now!!!
