Howard K: Gay, Schmay, Now You Pay

9/2/2008 8:22 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Howard K Stern says he smells the two rats who allegedly concocted lies and fed them to Rita Cosby in her tell-all book -- and the rodents are Jackie Hatten and Mark Speer, Larry Birkhead's former bodyguard.

TMZ has obtained a copy of a defamation lawsuit Stern just filed in L.A. County Superior Court. He claims Hatten -- the sister of Anna Nicole Smith's crazy ex-con ex-boyfriend Mark -- fed lies to Cosby, including the one that Stern gave lip service to Larry B ... in a Paris Hilton kind of way. Cosby's already been sued for publishing the allegation ... et tu, Jackie.

And there's more ... Stern is also suing Mark Speer, the dude Debra Opri hired to bodyguard Birkhead. Larry fired Speer, and Stern claims the scorned heavy then made up lies, which he spoon fed to Cosby. The alleged lies include claims that Stern was stealing money from Anna and striking back door deals with Birkhead over Dannielynn.

Stern is suing Hatten and Speer for unspecified damages.

BTW, Mark Hatten was busted for DUI today.

I know Mark Speer. He is a hero, retired from the LA County Sheriffs. He is an example of what America is all about. Howard Stern isn't even in the same league as a Mark Speer. Mr. Speer saved lives and Howard snuffed them out! If Mark Speer said the sky is falling, I would belive him!

Howard and Larry made their bed... showed who they are... now Please go away!

Sad    

Howard - come out, come out where ever you are? KARMA is hunting you down in a BIG WAY. What about the Yacht Anna paid for before you poisoned her? Why don't you sell that? You have no reputation, man, so why you suing? You will not get away with Anna and Daniel's murder. There are too many people in the know. You better run, you better swim, you can't run away because KARMA will get you!

Slowly but surely Justice will be seen for the people who deliberately concocted heinous stories about HKS and LB all in an effort to enrich themselves at the expense of an innocent baby girl.

This vicious type of media-whoring has no precedence in American history.

How does a loser lawyer end up with a yacht and a Bahamian house from his client unless he made a backroom deal with that gay guy Larry? I believe the bodyguard. Where is ALL the money Howard? What about the monument for Ann and Daniel in the Bahamas? You probably don't want to spend the hard earned cash on it... and we all know Dannilynn can't afford it with you two leeches in control... Poor Anna and Daniel... they have a paupers grave in a third world country!

I have NEVER beleived anything out of Rita's mouth, she is a parasite. Larry is a beautiful straight man and Howard has lost everything!Noone murdered anyone here, this is pure coincidental trajedy and Larry IS NOT GAY! And to all of the so called body gards, well, you lost two clients so of course you will run you lying mouths to the highest bidder because noone will hire any of you. Howard, if I ever need a Lawyer, I will call on you. And to Larry, you keep on keepin on and kiss the baby for me...April...

This lawsuit nicely encapsulates the false statements made by the peripheral hangers-on, Speer and Hatten, that are still repeated as facts today by supporters/agitators of VA.

Neither Speer nor Hatten could possibly have heard or seen what they say they did, yet their statements were published in Cosby's libelous book as facts.

Mark Speer was there! Howard is a crazy sociopath! You can't change history Howard! Do you really think that your version of events is even possible with al lthe lies you told Daddy? Anna said "EWWW" at the thought of you even touching her... let alone being the father of HER BABY.... LOOK IN THE MIRROR DUDE!

You will die alone. You are a liar.
