A Nightmare on Opri Street

6/13/2007 12:49 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Larry Birkhead used an appearance on "Larry King Live" last night to compare his former lawyer, Debra Opri, to the demonic character from the "Nightmare on Elm Street" movies. Flattery will get you ... to court.
"It's kind of like one of those Freddy Krueger movies when you try to get rid of somebody and they keep coming back," Birkhead said of Opri when asked about her lawsuit against him. "Carrie" might have been more fitting.

Before the interview, photogs spotted Birkhead making his way into the studio with daughter Dannielynn, curled up in a blanket in his arms.

All together now, "Awwwwww."

You stated: Her bill might be crazy but she has a point. She was hired to do 4 things. In signed contract he agreed this was her scope of work.

1. prove paternity
2. Get the baby
3. better his image with the public
4 find the funds to do the above 3 items.

1. Check - completed
2. Check - completed
3. Check - completed
4 check - completed.

She did all 4 items. So, now she doesn't get paid, WHAT?

She was overzealous in the media - but she did get the job done.

Well said JD. And, I'd like to add Opri has the payment documents he signed that clearly stated she was expected to be paid for service. And, was NOT doing these services pro bono. An other poster compared Larry's BS of not knowing what he signed to the lame excuses of Paris Hilton. And, unlike Hilton Larry has a BA degree in jouralsim of all things....duhhhh he has excellent skills in reading comprehsion and in a degree field that requires it.

He's a dead beat. And, Opri should suit the pants of him!!!!!

We are not critizising Larry we are just calling his attention maybe he doesn't realized that the baby perhaps can't breath the way he holds her with the blanket on her face. That is all.

Because we care and love the baby and Larry is a new dad with no experience we call his attention. It somebody calls this critizism perhaps its a CONSTRUCTIVE ONE.

God Bless you Larry. I would protect my baby with a blanket too, if I were him. He's holding on to her for dear life!!! Debra did not get him the BABY she travelled around the world on his dime from court house to court house, when all Larry had to do was hire his Bahamian lawyer for 10 days and get the baby himself. Opri was using this to milk him of any money, so what if she got him a deal. He would have got it on his own anyway. Larry is a STAR and I am so proud that he is finally with his little girl. AT LEAST HE'S holding the baby and not a NANNY!!!!!!

The naive country bumkin from Kentucky act can only go so far for Larry.

He's shrewd and calculating; obvious by his attempts to wrangle out of paying his lawyer who faught hard to get him his daughter.

Pay up Larry before this mess just blows up in your face. Think of Dannielynn and the needless press and anxiety this can cause her. Stop the soap opera!!!!

Larry is obvious you love the baby and have fun together, she looks soo happy and alert with you, YOU ARE DOING A PRETTY GOOD JOB AS A DADDY. Don't stop, she needs you, you are her daddy, mommy and brother now.

Please cut ties with criminal Stern, Danielynn doens't diserve to be visited, held or be around the criminal who destroyed her mommy and brother lives, with drugs.

Please if you love the babby don't do this to her. STERN IS AN EVIL MAN, he can destroy both of you eventually!

Larry, let Dannilynn's grandmother Virgie visit with her. Don't let all this money get in the way of doing what is right and decent for Dannilynn. Howard should not have any rights to visit her since he and Anna both
kept you away from the baby and he took the position of being the father.
He filmed Anna stoned 8 months pregnant...Larry, how can you trust
him with your daughter. I was rooting for you all along but now I have changed my opinion of you since you have allowed Howard to manipulate
you. What does he have on you...are you both just ater the money?

What does Howard have on Larry than he holds over him????

The evidence that Larry is a homosexual, and that's the reason why Anna fled from Larry. His lies and deceit repulsed Anna, as it would any woman!!!

Just leave Larry alone and let him do what he thinks is best    

IT IS A GOOD IDEA FOR LARRY TO DO SHOWS, PICTURES AND INTERVIEWS WITH DANNYLYNN, ESPECIALLY NOW. BY DOING THE SHOWS HE IS HELPING GET THE PHOTOGRAPHERS AND THE MEDIA HO'S AWAY FROM THEM, AND DANNYLYNN AND HE HAVE A BETTER CHANCE OF HAVING SOME PRIVACY. WHEN HE APPEARS ON SHOWS LIKE THIS WITH DANNYLYNN, THEN DANNYLYNN'S PICTURES AREN'T AS VALUABLE TO THE MEDIA AND THEY ARE NOT HOUNDING THEM AS MUCH. SO WHAT IF HE MAKES MONEY FROM IT. IT SEEMS THAT ANNA PRETTY MUCH DIED BROKE. SHE ALWAYS SPENT EVERY CENT SHE HAD. IF YOU WATCH THE SPECIAL ON ANNA NICOLE ON E! MANY PEOPLE WHO LIKED HER AND WERE HER FRIENDS SAY THAT SHE SPENT MONEY LIKE THERE WAS NO TOMORROW. LARRY INHERITED ALL OF ANNA'S BILLS AND LAW SUITS AGAINST HER. HE HAS TO HIRE A FULL TIME NANNY OR NANNIES AND HE HAS TO HAVE SECURITY AND GUARDS. HE HAS TO HIRE ATTORNEYS AND PAY FOR THEM. YES, THERE IS PROOF THAT OPRI TOLD LARRY THAT SHE WAS DOING HIS CASE PRO-BONO. NANCY GRACE SAID ON HER SHOW THAT LARRY HAD CALLED HER AND ASKED HER WHAT SHE THOUGHT ABOUT OPRI, BECAUSE OPRI HAD TOLD HIM SHE WOULD TAKE HIS CASE FOR NOTHING. AND NANCY GRACE TOLD HIM AS LONG AS OPRI WAS DOING IT FOR NOTHING TO GO FOR IT. THEN OPRI STARTED CHARGING LARRY. AFTER HE FIRED HER SHE TRIPLED THE BILL. OPRI SEEMS TO BE NOT A NICE PERSON. I CAN'T HELP BUT THINK THAT WHAT SHE IS DOING IS REALLY RUINING HER BUSINESS. BUT I THINK LARRY SHOULD NOT MAKE COMMENTS ABOUT THE CASE, EVEN THOUGH OPRI IS USING BAD JUDGEMENT BY DOING THAT. I THINK DANNYLYNN IS BEAUTIFUL SHE DOES LOOK JUST LIKE ANNA. DR. KHRIS IS NOT IN THE HOUSE NEXT DOOR, SHE IS IN HIDING.

Just read the court documents that D.O filed against L.B. I'm sick to think this guy fooled us all. L.B's home was so filthy a cleaning crew had to be hired to sterlilize it. He charged up all kinds of things on his lawyers credit card. And, now a gay lover was living there and LB hid that fact from the public??? Where's the neartest toilet. I'm going to be sick.

That poor baby has a snowball's chance in hell of being noraml. Everyone around her is nuttier than a bag of peanuts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No honest lawyer (an oxymoron if ever there was) would have had Larry sign all those agreements with regard to fees and media rights had Opri not intended on milking him for all the was worth, or, more to the point, going to be worth! It's obvious that he was not very savy before but he has now come to a rude awakening. He always appears to be honest and straight forward, and his baby is adorable. It isn't his fault that he had to spend all that time and effort fighting for his daughter and he still has to go back to the Bahamas again this month. Why isn't it over yet? Baby is his, leave them alone!

Larry, Why forgive Howard and not Virgie. If you remember Anna did not want you around the baby either. Do the right thing. Dont listen to the devil. God says forgive. I feel she is fighting to keep Stern away from Dannielynne with good reason. One is DRUGS! As far as Opri, she did help you. You know this. Arbitrate the bill and stop these lawsuits. It is in your best interest to do this. All it is going to do is put you in debt and make Howard and his lawyers rich. Open your eyes, before it is too late.
