Birkhead to Testify -- Anna Nicole Was a Drug Addict

7/29/2010 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Larry Birkhead is prepared to tell a jury that he knew his baby mama Anna Nicole Smith was addicted to drugs for years ... this according to court documents obtained by TMZ.

It's all part of the State of California's case against Anna's doctors -- in which they're accused of illegally providing prescription medications to the late starlet.

According to the docs, filed in L.A. County Superior Court, the prosecution says Birkhead has "personal knowledge of Anna Nicole Smith's drug activities, gleaned from years of personal observation."

The lawyers defending the doctors are trying to exclude Birkhead's testimony, saying he's not "qualified" to testify on whether Smith meets the legal definition of an addict.

But in the docs, the prosecution explains that when Birkhead says Anna was an "addict" he is "saying that [he] personally observed her using controlled substances in an uncontrolled way over a long period of time."

The judge is expected to make a ruling on the issue shortly.

WELL I ALSO BELIEVE THAT MOES WIFE, THE NURSE FOR ANNA, SHOULD BE LOOKED AT ALSO, AFTER ALL, WHEN THEY WERE AT THE HARDROCK,ANNA WAS RUNNING A 105 FEVER, ANYONE THAT SICK,ISNT THINKING CLEARLY OR IF AT ALL. WHY SHE SAT AT THE FOOT OF ANNAS BED NOT CHECKING ON ANNA, AND NOT WANTING THE OTHER WOMAN TO WAKE ANNA.AND HOWARD TO GO BUY A BOAT,THEY ALL KNEW HOW SICK SHE WAS, WHY DIDNT SOMEONE CALL 911????? THE DAY HOWARD TAPED ANNA IN CLOWN FACE, SAYING THIS IS WORTH ALOT OF MONEY. DANIEL GOING TO SEE HIS NEW BABY SISTER IN THE BAHAMAS & DYING THE FIRST NITE & HOWARD WAS SEEN FLUSHING DOWN PILLS IN THE TOLIET. ADD IT ALL UP. AN ADDICT NEEDS MEDICAL HELP,NOT SOMEONE TO KEEP FEEDING PILLS TO THEM!!! ANNA WAS A VERY MISUNDERSTOOD ,SWEET WOMAN. I MISS HER!!! HOWARD, & THE DOCTORS FOR ANNA, SHOULD GO TO PRISON FOR A LONG TIME. FOR BOTH DEATHS!!!!! COMMON SENSE!!!!!
