New Anna Nicole Claim: 'Pharmaceutical Suicide'

9/22/2009 10:19 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Anna Nicole SmithA pharmacist told Anna Nicole Smith the drugs her internist prescribed to cope with her son's death were "pharmaceutical suicide," according to just released documents.

And, in a stunning turn, the court papers filed by the State of California claim psychiatrist Khristine Eroshevich and internist Sandeep Kapoor -- both being prosecuted for their prescribing practices in the Smith case -- crossed the line by having sexual contact with Anna Nicole.

According to the document, obtained by the L.A. Times, three pharmacists refused to fill the prescriptions Eroshevich and Kapoor had written. One of the pharmacists claims he reacted by saying to himself, "They are going to kill her with this."

According to the documents, five days after her son, Daniel, died Eroshevich asked for two sedatives, 300 tablets of methadone, a muscle relaxer, an anti-inflammatory drug and 4 bottles of a painkiller.

As for the alleged improper sexual contact, authorities found photos of Anna Nicole and Eroshevich naked and embracing in a bathtub. As for Kapoor, authorities cite a video showing a shirtless Kapoor "kissing and nuzzling" Anna Nicole.

Ellyn Garofalo, the attorney for Dr. Kapoor, says "There's been a misreading of the medical records." She adds, "When all the facts are disclosed, they will show that Dr. Kapoor's treatment of Anna Nicole Smith was in good faith and consistent with good medical practice."
