'Anna Nicole' Opera -- The Fat Lady May Sue

2/17/2011 4:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Larry Birkhead says Anna Nicole Smith's Estate is threatening legal action over the opera titled "Anna Nicole" ... TMZ has learned.

Anna Nicole Opera Musical

The opera --- playing now at the Royal Opera House in London -- is about Anna's life, and features a very large woman with big boobs loosely resembling Anna.

Larry tells TMZ the producers never contacted Anna's estate or him.  They also didn't offer Larry an advance screening.  Larry says the opera is like "a sleazy tabloid."

Birkhead says the estate is now weighing its legal option.

And, Larry adds, "If [the producers] are not careful, they'll get more than diet pills in the mail."

Larry Birkhead is a greedy, sleazy homosexual failed actor turned paparazzo who had no moral dilemmas when he agreed to impregnate a drug addict for money. He should be ashamed of himself!

Marshall millions are pipe dream. Get a job loser.

ANS was a drug-addled, stripper/prostitute whose life was a trainwreck, and she capitalized on that. Larry was an opportunistic bi-sexual guy, looking for his Sugar Momma. When she tired of him, she sent him packing. Neither of those two are morally decent. He only wanted that baby because of the fame and potential fortune she would bring. And yes, ladies and gents, he is seeing dollar signs in this suit. He's not attempting to protect Anna's image. Besides, nobody in this world could possibly harm Anna's image more than she did, on a regular basis.

Really #5? At least he's taking care of his daughter. Haven't seen anything questionable about Birkhead in any of the rag mags. He seems like a great dad, not some money grubbing low life.

If the play only covers events that were widely circulated in the press then he can't sue. The information was freely given to the public, so anyone can write a play about it.

If you don't want a play written about you, then don't be such a media whore. If you put your details out there for the public...well, what do you expect?

Why do they have to contact the sperm donor regarding a parody of her life?

Umm.. does he realize is against the law to make a threat like that?

The funny thing is, is that ANS would just be thankful that someone even wrote a play about her at all. Just to be considered relevent. This guy's a dolt.
