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."

I pray that Opri find a real God to worship instead of money. She is like that Ann Coulter clown who is always spouting hate and can't keep her fat mouth shut. I pray that they get the help they need.

She should have removed that sour pickle outta her mouth before that photo! Good gosh she's ugly (and a ripoff artist to boot)!

74. 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.

So you think the kids should have gone to an abusive cocaine addicted mother rather than to their alcohol father who passed every urine test?

The MSNBC reporter will backup Birkhead. "Opri's would work for free" statement.. Plus, the answering machine recording of her "saying she will work for free statement" to Birkhead should cost her law license and put her in jail for fraud.

Larry and Opri deserve each other. Larry was a boy-toy sperm donor......nothing more. Anna dumped him, and why he was "visiting" the hospital room, while Howard was residing by her side as he had done for 12 years prior.
Now, Larry has done nothing but USE Dannylynn for the salary he never earned from her Mother Anna. Larry was about the money from day one, based on the timing of her pregnancy, but did not stop Larry from sending Anna e-mails disparaging her for sleeping with his friend with the vasectomy. Larry could not push Howard out of the picture because Howard was a weak man for Anna, but her staunchest confidant and advocate, and Dannylynn should have stayed with Howard, who is actually in control of the Marshall lawsuit.....so who is using who??? Seems Larry needs Howard far more then Howard needs Larry. Howard is a trined lawyer who gave up a retention salary, worth far more then the room and board Anna provided for him.
But all you people who try cases on the TV.....based on BIASED PUBLIC OPINION, based on zero facts.....is why Howard probably just cut all ties to Dannylynn's custody. Because all you Larry supporters, based on zero facts other then sperm donor, canwatch the Photo Op King, Larry who hasn't taken a break on using Dannylynn to cash in on.....and Dannylynn usually appears like she wants this guy to put her down and stop trying to fake the bond.....she does that with Howard.

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