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.

I despise liars,Do not try and feed me that crap,Anna was in SC for months without Howard,Toothless Shelly was on Anna show,and anytime Vergie if she cared at all could have called the POLICE DEPARTMENT AND INSIST ON SEEING HER DAUGHTER.Again,if Vergie got off her fat butt instead of Splash and her taking pictures in the bahamas,and showed she wanted to see Anna,she would have saw Anna,TO BAD IT WAS ANNA NOT HOWARD THAT KEPT THAT CREEDY ****ROACH AWAY.

Thank G-d I had enough sense to have not watch a single episode of that show, thought it was just too degrading.

By the time Virgie tried to reach out to Anna, she was already too deeply involved/controlled by Howard. Howard already blocked and intercepted all Virgie's calls as well as her friends, and I doubt if the police would have done anything if the mighty Howard stepped in.

No matter what Virgie did, Howard twisted it around to make her look bad... for example, making a few bucks off splash. I viewed it as her way of bring attention to the fact that Anna needed help. Funny how everyone was making money off Anna and still is but its OK. But if Virgie, her mom, makes a few bucks she is vilified. And she was not making money hand over fist.


I always wondered what happened to all Anna's close friends during her last few years. You know, the kind of girlfriends that you call anytime just to gab. The ones that knows your very thoughts and can finish your sentences. Why was she only surrounded by Howard and all his goonies? Something very wrong there.

If the bodyguard actually did supply drugs to his clients, he crossed the line, and should face the music. Professionals provide anything and everything their client's want and need that is legal. Real pros in the industry know how to protect the clients from them selves, without the client knowing it. But you get what you pay for in the bodyguard business. Keep safe and God Speed, Doc Rogers

Does anyone wonder about the two doctor's families and what they must be going thru ? I bet they blame HKS for all of this nightmare, if it weren't for him they wouldn't be in deep dooky right now. He probably reasssured them that they weren't breaking any laws.

Well, it was quite OBVIOUS that Howard Stern 'played a major role / enabled the already drug addicted Anna Nicole Smith; this being said, I saw a an actual video (and correct me someone IF the two individuals in the video were someone else other than Stern, and, Smith) where Mr. Stern had given Anna some sort of LSD, her face all painted up like that of a clown...all along, Mr. Stern laughing in said video, saying, " Anna, we can make some money off of this" ).
In regards to this *** doctor Kapoor (by the way, I myself am gay, and the doctor was just in it for the fame he could get admist Annas money), he should have his medical license pulled ( as well as any/all other doctors who handed out drugs to Anna like candy ).
If anything good came out of all of this, perhaps it will be that Mr. Birkhead will raise this child in a responsible way,which appears to be the case.
I hope the others go directly to prison ! And place them in general population with the ' really tough men " !

What is wrong with this world? Can't anybody see what Howard Stern's agenda was? He doped her up to where she was not functional and so he could rule her world until she would die. Got the opportunity to kill off her son, lied and said her baby was his (future billions), he is evil. He killed both Anna and her son Daniel and thank God Larry Birkhead fought for Dannylynn or she would have been his next victim. He even looks like the bad witch in the Wizard of Oz movie.
