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."

Opri..she's going downhill fast. Look how well she did with the ex of Hasselhoff. She couldn't even get her client custody from a slurring, hamburger mawing, shirtless alcoholic like David Hasselhoff. YAY Debra..maybe you can open up your own laundry mat.

And Jolene, I never said I believed everything on this site, stop making things up. I said I see alot of people acting foolish to prove their point. I see someone leading the crowd, and there are some dumb followers.

You have to admit though, that this site isn't nearly as pathetic as the Bald Truth! I've seen your posts there. I couldn't bring myself to expend the energy to even try to get those folks to just to open their minds to sources other than Art. Some actually sound as if Art was a god and anything he spews is gospel!

One can only hope that Opri gets disbarred like Nifong was disbarred for botching the case against the Duke lacrosse players.That would be real justice.If Opri committed any criminal offenses in the Birkhead issue,then she should be charged,and if found guilty,incarcerated.Hatred toward Opri is worthless.Jail would be her wake-up call to reality.

Why can't someone like Opri defend someone like OJ? That would be justice!
