Will Virgie Get in Larry's Way? Today's Custody Fight Looms

4/13/2007 11:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Birkhead and Arthur tussle.We know that Larry Birkhead is Dannielynn's biological dad, but does that mean he'll get to take her home to L.A.? A hearing is scheduled for 2:30 PM EDT in the Bahamas, to determine who will get custody of the little girl -- we're an hour away from the start of the hearing.

Howard K. Stern has already told Birkhead he won't fight for custody now that Birkhead's been named as the father, but one wild card remains in the large form of Virgie Arthur.

Anna Nicole's mom has stated that she wants to be more than just the child's grandma.

TMZ will have all the custody-day action as it happens!

67. Larry should get full custody. He then depending on how she acts should allow her visitation with her grandaughter. However I would let her know now that if she fights in any way for custody, when I win, you will not see her at all.

i agree--and just like any other grandparents who live far away--you don't see that often--and if any pictures happen to sold while the baby was with the grandmother--i would reconsider visitation.

U go Larry: Do not share any custody! The baby is YOURS alone period...You fought long and hard to get your own baby: Hoard also owes U bigtime... Vergie : bug out.. if anything u should be a grandma and nothing more and only that IF LArry wants it that way.. and IF u step out of line U should then NOT even have visitation... You are out of line now....leave Larry alone.....U should be very satisfied with being a grandma....I do not think u were a good mother even.......

The REAL Just My Opinion    

Virgie has said she wants to be the grandmother. She has NEVER said she wanted custody if Larry was the father. She wanted custody if he wasn't.

I do not understand how TMZ and other media outlets keep distorting this.
Are they so foolish they can't understand plain English, or are they doing it for some kind of favor for HK$?

Birkhead had sex once with Anna & made a baby - STERN separated them.

Virgie gave birth to Anna, raised Anna and raised Dannie and tried to get Anna off drugs and to get Anna away from Stern go she could LIVE - STERN separated them.

Who should get the baby - sex with a man gets him $400 Million or
- the grandmother who tried to save Anna's life

Let me be the first to say this:

NO MATTER WHAT, Howard K. Stern and his attack dogs will MOAN and GROAN about Larry when he finally takes HIS baby HOME.

Trust me, I am sure the scripts are already written and the ink on the contracts with ET is already dry! They will play the separation of Dannielynn and Howard for all the $$$ they can get!

The Stern machine has already stated that Howard contacted psychologists about the transition .... Stern will want an ETERNITY and NO length of time will suit them.

Meanwhile, Dannielynn has been with God knows how many nannies in her life, as well as a mother who, according to a quote attributed to Dr. Eroshevich, never bonded with the baby.

Howard has been a quasi-constant in Dannielynn's life but how much time could he spend with her when he has been embroiled in so many legal battles, including trying to keep the baby from her REAL father? And what was the quality?

Howard's sister, parents and friends have been helping care for the baby and we know that Mrs. Gerlene Gibson is probably the primary caretaker.

With that lengthy parade of people coming in and out of the house, Dannielynn seems to have adapted, if reports can be believed.

Dannielynn will be fine with Larry no matter what! If he took her today, she would be as fine as she would be in a month.

BUT, you can count on the obnoxious TrimSpas, Bonnie Stern, and pompous, self-righteous asshole DR. PHIL, will do a special show about how terrible Larry is for taking Dannielynn after only 3 days, 10 days, 30 days - or whatever it turns out to be.

The REASON they will do all of this DRAMA is because HOWARD K. STERN needs SYMPATHY in the worst way.

The attorney bought Stern some time today and the inquest won't be till the end of May, at the earliest. So for the next 5 weeks, you can expect a MEDIA BLITZ to try to get sympathy for poor Howard.

HOWARD deserves NO sympathy regarding the baby because he should not have fought to keep Dannielynn from Larry. He KNEW Larry was the father!

Remember, NO MATTER WHAT, Larry will be blamed.

WATCH & SEE!

LIN WOOD LOOKS LIKE A WOMAN ABUSER HIMSELF!    

YEAH RIGHT! criminal Stern will not fight Larry for custody but wil manipulate and control Larry's and the baby's monies. Of course this creep doesn't want granma near the baby. SAME AS WITH NICOLE Stern wants Larry and the baby all by himself ro destroy them too.

COME ON WAKE UP PEOLE!! hope grandma gets JOINT CUSTODY. Larry is showing to be A VERY WEAK MAN!

get it right    

Larry might be a media whore, but Anna was a drug whore! So whats the difference ? Anna had the baby till she Od'D and Larry couldnt even see her, but now hes all bad because he likes the camera? Have you forgotten how that nut Stern was crying on ET when he went back to the Bahamas after Anna died and he was holding Dannielynn and making such a show?? lay off Larry, its his kid! If he wants to take her pictures and sell them its his right! Maybe not right in everyone elses eyes, but since when do we get to tell others how to raise thier kids???

The REAL Just My Opinion    

Children don't turn easily against their own mother, there had to be a damn good reason

OH, but they do...........Adults turn againt parents EVERDAY when the person is a DRUG ADDICT.

They don't want anyone interfering with their addiction or their pimp.

As a Grandmother myself, I would SLAP a son of mine if I was like Vergie, and would expect and demand that my son NOT let me see any Grandchild. Vergie has dollar signs in her eyes. Do you think for ONE minute that she is over in the Bahamas on her own money?? OR that her shyster lawyer is hanging around free gratis? (Rolling my eyes)

Vergie wants to be more than a grandmother to Dannie, in my opinion she is not evern that. What will is cost to get rid of her. All she wants is that money and that is not a done deal, in fact Marshall's lawyers said as far as they were concerned she was not getting any money from his estate. Go home Vergie and stop making a fool of yourself.

MR O'QUINN PLEASE FIGHT TO GET JOINT CUSTODY OF THE BABY, Larry is VERY WEAK will allow criminal Stern to manipulate him and the baby's decisions just like he did with Nicole, ALL BY HIMSELF, of course doesn't want grandma around!!

GRAND MA FIGHT TO GET JOINT CUSTODY OF YOUR GRANDAUGHTER, ALSO TRY TO GET AMERICAN COURTS TO HONOR THAT DECISION TOO SO IT WILL BE ENFORZABLE QHEN THE BABY MOVES TO THE USA.
