Birkhead To Opri -- B**ch, Don't Spend My Money

6/19/2007 5:29 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained Larry Birkhead's new legal attack on Debra Opri. This time, he's asking for an injunction, prohibiting his fired lawyer from spending around $600,000 she's holding hostage in her client trust account.

Birkhead made the money after inking a million-dollar deal with Bravo network. Birkhead has sued Opri, alleging she put the money in her trust account without his consent, and then sent him a ginormous bill.

In an interesting turn, the lawyer for IMG, the agency that represents Opri, turned on her. Regan McGorry writes in a declaration that "Debra directed IMG, and in a telephone call directed IMG and Television Network [Bravo] to wire the initial payment of approximately $866,250 into her attorney client trust account. Debra informed me that she had full authority to have this money wired into said trust account." Wrong!

In Birkhead's declaration, he says, "I need protection to make certain that Opri does not and cannot abscond with my money."

Ms. Opri seem to have more than just a personality problem, she also seems to have missed the ethic class in law school.

So she keeps more than $800,000 and sends a bill anyways? What did she say about her good name?

Whatareyoudoing?    

Larry should understand that every dime of the 800 grand is going to take care of hubby's dry cleaning. Don't be so selfish. Dannilyn's got a few years left before college, so she won't need this. You people just don't understand. LMAO.

Opri had no right to leak your case to the media. Then when you wouldn't succumb to her blackmailing you, she smeared you.

Opri Shame on you.
