Birkhead-Opri Battle Bite

7/23/2007 2:36 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Larry Birkhead continues to sink his teeth into his former lawyer, Debra Opri, and Dannielynn is also getting in on the act. Larry told TMZ that Dannielynn now has six baby teeth and is using Larry as a teething ring.


Opri was also chewed up by a not-so-flattering feature piece in the L.A. Times this weekend. The article covered Opri's rise to celebulawyer, her relationship with Birkhead, and some of the outrageous line-items on Birkhead's bill which included $1,500 a month for Debra's publicist, $119 per e-mail and $96,000 in cellphone calls.

Birkhead is suing Opri for fraud, breach of fiduciary duty and legal malpractice. Birkhead alleges that Opri offered to take his case free of charge, while Opri countered, "I don't work for free. I just don't. I can't afford it."

Two weeks ago, Birkhead won a key battle against Opri when Judge Charles C. Lee granted his request for a preliminary injunction, which requires that Opri return $591,250 of Birkhead's money, which is being kept in a blocked account that can only be touched by court order.

HK$ is a shape shifting Reptile!! .And ... Larry has made a deal with the devil and he knows it. He has signed his life away by signing papers drawn up by HK$. Opri was right to disconnect herself from him!!

Larry you "sold out" !!!!

The truth will come out soon enough and everyone will find out the truth about Larry & HK$ and the deals they have made with each other!

HK$ has made sure he is still very much in control and Larry has enabled him to do it!

Larry I was wrong to give you the benefit of the doubt!!!

You go Larry - I hope you burn that crumb-grabbing, media whore. Who, by the way, is a LOUSY attorney, who can't figure out something so simple as proper jurisdiction. She WASTED so much money, and for what? To promote herself, and for no other reason.

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

I hope the courts get it straightened out for them. I believe that she did tell Larry would do it for nothing. But once she saw that Larry would make that money, she wanted all of it. I also believe that she overcharged Larry because she thought he would just pay up and forget it. She overcharged also because she was mad because Larry let her go. I ALSO THINK THAT OPRI SPENT MOST OF THAT MONEY IN THE TRUST THAT WAS LARRY'S AND THAT IS ILLEGAL.

LARRY YOU ARE AN UNGRATEFUL PIG!! , AFTER YOU TWO TIMED DEBRA OPRI meeting with your kidnapper and criminal Stern and Ron Rale without her knowledge I don't blame a bit for charging you DOUBLE for her valuable, good hearted help so that you can soon get your daughter and become likeable and thus supported by the public. YOU ARE NOTHING BUT AN UNGRATEFUL PIG !!

I guess you and Stern are the kind of freaks that can stab anybody's back for money, no morals or concience here. YOU DON'T CARE THAT STERN KILLED YOUR DAUGHTER'S MOM AND ONLY BROTHER. You and Stern are true human waste.

WRONG AGaIN TMZ!

This inaccurate as usual! TMZ always bags on Opri with inaccurate reporting... The judge DID NOT grant Birdhead's request for an injunction and it was a victory for Opri as the money stayed in a protective account until the judge rules on arbitration in October... Where does TMZ get this info? From Larry The Loser and Howard the drug dealer? Read the judges ruling!

Opri ought to think about switching calling plans or get another wireless carrier. $96,000 is a bit steep.

E mail costs at $119 per - ridiculous.

It'll be interesting to see how the California courts sanction her.

LARRY YOU ARE SOOOOO DUMB!

How can you say that Opri would work for free whe she even put $100,000 of her money at the bweggining to help you out??? Did you also think the $100,000 was a give to you because you are a darling freak????

SNAP OUT !, you are suing Opri using the lawyers of the baby kidnapper you and Opri were fighting to and have caused all these problems. What a stupid thing you are!!

I can't believe the courts WERE SO CORRUPTED and sided with a sperm donor and a murderer instead of the victim's mother and grandmother. ITS UNREAL!!!

SO DID LARRY GET HIS $591,250 BACK OR HIS OPRI STILL HIDING IT, COLLECTING INTEREST NO DOUBT? IT APPEARS THAT LAWYERS HAVE A LICENSE TO STEAL IN ADDITION TO ALL THE OTHER PERK'S THEY ENJOY!
