Opri Fires Back

4/2/2007 3:47 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Debra OpriDebra Opri has just issued the following statement regarding the legal fees she charged Larry Birkhead:

"One can only imagine from whom and for what purposes these stories were started. I cannot comment on unauthenticated documents which were disseminated to the media under suspicious circumstances, and which are covered by the attorney-client privilege. I can assure you, however, that all of the fees and expenses incurred on behalf of Mr. Birkhead were reasonable, necessary, and appropriate, given the complexity and magnitude of this very high profile case that was litigated in two different states and a foreign country. Out of respect for Mr. Birkhead, I cannot comment further at this time."

debra Opri,

you were very unkind to Anna when she was alive, and struggling with her drug problem. You knew damn well that you needed to go to the Bahama's, and not the media to settle all of this. Anna may be here today had you and Larry not humiliated her and created so much stress for her!!!! Why on earth did Larry get this woman PREGNANT??? You and Larry make me sick. I hope you don't get paid until you are 6 feet under, and I hope LARRY doesn't see any money until he is 6 feet under!!!!!

Howard K. Stern deserves to have custody of Dannielynn. He is the LEGAL father. In the end, the truth will prevail. Biological father means nothing.

I watched Opri when she was involved with Michael Jackson....She was a smart-ass then and tried to grab all the media attention.

douchebag opri    

did this woman actually pass the bar?
the atty/client priviledge belongs to the client...it does NOT protect the atty.
i find it hilarious and desperate of her to attempt to point a "shame on you" finger at media outlets printing her outrageous bill...as though they have violated the atty/client priv....as if thats even possible. she's a moron.

If Geraldo was right last night, Ms. Opri hasn't a leg to stand on. Geraldo said she took this case pro bono, and if that's correct, there is no signed contract.

Go Opri,

LB deserves a bill, what did he expect? Pro-bono? He's the one who chose the lawyer with the high billable price.

Larry needs to suck it up and pay the woman. Perhaps Access Hollywood will help him out with that! LOSER!

Stick it to him Opri!

THIS is why Larry fired her, not because he wanted a Bahamian attorney. He caught wind of the charges she was going to make him pay and he fired her. THAT is why neither of them would talk about it. See, what you do in the dark comes out in the day.
