Bodyguard: Stern Supplied Drugs to Anna Nicole

8/6/2010 2:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Anna Nicole Smith's boyfriend Howard K. Stern supplied copious amounts of drugs to Anna in the months before she died of a drug overdose in 2007 ... this according to her former bodyguard's testimony today.

Anna Nicole Smith Drugs
Bodyguard Maurice Brighthaupt -- a Miami firefighter and paramedic who unsuccessfully tried to revive Anna on the day she died -- made the allegations today during his testimony in the Anna Nicole drug case.

According to Brighthaupt, he witnessed Stern and Anna's psychiatrist -- Dr. Khristine Eroshevich -- feed Anna's addictions by providing her with piles of pills ... and claimed Anna would take up to 20 pills at a time, including Valium.

Brighthaupt said Anna's drug use only got worse after her son Daniel overdosed and died in September of 2006.

Stern, Dr. Eroshevich and Dr. Sandeep Kapoor have all pled not guilty to conspiring to oversupply Anna with powerful opiates and sedatives.

Yeah, yeah , yeah.....They are all so concerned now that she is DEAD, where was all the yelling while she was ALIVE ???? Everybody stood by and watched. Above all those who enabled her, the doctors prescribing all the medication are the most responsible.

Maybe Stern figured that was the only way she'd keep him around. If so, he sold his soul.

These people who fed her habits should be tried for involuntary manslaughter. They pumped her full of drugs so they could share her spotlight, then turn around and act like they did nothing wrong when she died. Just like MJ's doctor and the many more who supply celebrities with sooo many drugs, they too are at fault when their clients die. Yeah, I know, they didn't force their clients to do drugs, but they poured fuel on the fire and lit the match. That makes them as much at fault as the user.

I wish people would stop referring to Stern as "her boyfriend". He was not. She herself said she never slept with him. He was just a live-in attorney who controlled her with drugs. Anyone who tried to stop her addiction was tossed out, as was Birkhead. He truly loved her and fathered her child while Stern slept on the couch below the bedroom. Tell me if any BOYFRIEND would allow that!

Anybody that watched her show could see that Stern himself towards the end of the show was taking drugs too. Yes he is somewhat responsible but Anna was a grown women and made her own choices, most were not wise. It's unfortunate one of those choices took her life.

Celebrities Suck    

Re:Bodyguard: Stern Supplied Drugs to Anna Nicole ( no sh@$T who doesn't know that? This isn't old news, it's taking a judge all these years to figure that out. The only reason Stern is getting away with this it's because he's a lawyer...
