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.

Does this really surprise anyone? Of coarse he kept her drugged up thats the only way he could control her and for him to keep his sorry ass around.He knew she was dead when he walked out of that Hotel room,and I thing the Police and Coroner screwed that case up big time.

Also Howard Stern was the person who made Anna relevant again by creating her show.

Big Moe's testimony to the prosecution’s questions is all that is reported here. His testimony was entirely nullified under cross-examination and turned to a positive.

With defense questioning, Big Moe clarified that HKS loved and cherished ANS had no malice toward her or reason to harm her and that he was not sure what drugs were being taken/given. Big Moe also clarified that ANS was not always drugged; although she slept a lot when awake she was vibrant and enjoyed her fans and overall was a strong-willed person who directed her own life affairs. ANS was never the same after the tragic accidental death of her beloved Daniel.

More cross-examination for Big Moe on Monday.

yeah and Stern's credibility didn't go down the toilet when he and his family LIED repeatedly, claiming the baby was his.

i doubt anna ever touched him

anna knew he was responsible for Danny's death and was angry so he basically kept her even more drugged up. SICK SICK person that HKS was.

The doctor is nothing more than a drug pusher. Too bad the Seminole reservation would not persue criminal charges, this doctor is responsible for Anna dying. She had an infected injection site which contributed to it, and had a dangerously high fever and refused to go to the E.R. so the doctor gave her an ice bath? Come on, you rush someone to the E.R....

Many of you write that Anna was a grown upp woman who knew what she was doing. If you are deep in your drugabuse you are not thinking clear anymore.

The grown upps around her such as Stern and her doctors are the ones who knew EXACTLY WHAT THEY DID!

To me they killed her deliberately. ANNA WAS MURDERED!

American justice is not working if these people go free.

This isn't a murder trial. This is a trial about prescription fraud (using alias), attempting to prescribe massive amounts in one prescription, knowingly prescribing to a drug addict, and crossing professional boundaries by having a personal relationship with their patient.

ANS ultimately was the one who killed herself. She took these drugs like they were M&M's and she found through manipulation doctor's who are sworn to do no harm, giving her whatever she wanted. HKS enabled her by getting prescriptions in his name, or other alias because to do otherwise he knew she would kick him to the curb.

Bottom line here is that these doctors take an oath to do no harm, yet went on to prescribe drugs that she didn't need.

Hopefully this case will be a wake up call to all doctor's who are over prescribing dangerous narcotic's to patient's who have no medical neccesity in getting them. This is happening all over the country not just Hollywood and the pharmaceutical companies are loving every single dollar that they are pulling in by turning American's into full blown drug addicts.
