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.

If it's true that Dannielynn is paying Larry's bills, what's going to happen to any/all of them when she doesn't inherit the Marshall fortune??

Anna didn't want a man like Larry because she knew he was a bum & could not support her.

Noodle monkey,
Good point. Guess Larry will just have to sue a lot more people or find a woman to support him.

Sick Of It    

Larry B. hung in there with his first lawsuit (dna) and got it right; he is right on course with this one against Debri O; hang in there, Larry, you are right again! Oh yes, what does this have to do with HKS; yes, he is a sly, cheating bum,but that's another subject.

I could imagine all celebs would avoid Larry like a skunk. Fed-Ex appears like an angel compared to Larry....

If his only aim had been to get the facts straight he wouldn't have accepted a compensation in the Ashley Judd lawsuit. He's probably not what he pretends to be: a truth-seeker. Money, money, money.... How many interviews did he give? 10, 20... even more?

Larry is so money crazy till he would do anything for a dollar. Him & Howard think they're going to get their greedy hands on old man Marshalls money. I hope to see someone wipe up the floor with both their lazy sorry behinds.

I still wonder why we know so little about his past. What happened to the guy who shared an apartment with Larry? Do they all have to sign a confidentiality agreement? I wouldn't wonder.
