Birkhead Star Witness In Howard K. Case

10/12/2009 7:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

We've learned Larry Birkhead will be called by the prosecution in the Howard K. Stern preliminary hearing that starts tomorrow -- and we're told his testimony will center on Anna Nicole Smith's drug use.

Birkhead has said in the past -- when he was at war with Stern -- that Howard K. helped fuel her drug addiction. What will be especially interesting is whether Birkhead backs off the story now that the custody battle is long over and he and Stern have an alliance and now work together managing Anna Nicole's estate.

Birkhead's testimony could backfire on prosecutors if he says some of the statements he made were in the heat of battle.

To Harvey & Mike, et al:

Will TMZ have someone in the courtroom covering this trial every day? It'll be fascinating to see what comes out and how the jury resolves it. (Or is this a bench trial?) Thanks-

I don't think it would take testimony from anyone to know Howard K fueled her drug problem...a lot of people did. Its the same story with Michael Jackson. No one wanted to tell them no..or cared more about money than helping these people get a grip on their drug problems. Its a shame.

I'd say that there is definitely a conflict of interest here. The DA better make sure that Birkhead is on the same page as they are - balancing the truth against money (since he and Stern manage Anna's estate)- could be hairy. Why the heck is Stern still managing ANYTHING! Don't understand that one.

Birkhead goes with the flow or wherever he can make the most money. Looks like he'll be able to sell more stories and sell more pictures. Dannilynne get ready to smile pretty cause your daddy will be selling some more photos while the story is hot again...

Gotta love BirkILOVETOGIVEhead. Went from an unemployed actor/photographer to a millionaire who sells out his daughter...go figure! Only in LaLaLand

Truth    

He's not going to testify against Howard Stern when they have business dealings together! I guarantee it! He has a vested interested in helping Howard! It's amazing how he teamed with Howard after everything that happened between them! Something doesn't smell right with the whole situation from the get go!!

Kooky not only has a life, he has a fan club!!!!! Love you Kooky!

I agree!

Kooky makes reading the comments a little more interesting. Unlike these demented, twisted and hateful rejects, that take pleasure in slapping their rancid, pus filled comments on these sites just to get attention; By the way, I notice not very many people are responding to them. Praise the Lord!

Finally, everybody has realized that you don't want to argue with a fool, because if someone was to read your argument, they wouldn't know who the fool is.

You all have learned well! I'm very proud of you!
