'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."

"sleazy tabloid".....this is what Larry told to TMZ....ummm ok. the icing on the cake for me is as he's calling something sleazy, he makes an awful joke relating to the dead mother of his child. Classy!

Get a Clue!    

Is there any way the play could be worse than the truth about her? She was a stripper, a gold digger, a drug addict, sheesh...not like she had social redeeming values!

Look at that picture of a paparazzo turned millionaire... bleached blonde hair, fake nose. Larry Birkhead can't sue anybody. Birkhead's ex gay lover Kerrick Ross exposed him, and Larry Gayhead didn't sue him for libel. Anna Nicole and Larry performed oral sex on rich old men. I think Larry shouldn't be so touchy. That's what they did best.

This coming from the man who basically famewhored himself out there during the trial. He portrays himself pretty well in the media as the innocent guy but read some books on the Anna Nicole Smith death and some of the trials. He's not a sweet as you may think and he did some shady ****. He may be a decent dad but he doesnt stop from using that kid to get some cash. Just cause you dont see him in the rag mag's all the time doesnt make him a swell guy..
