The fallout from the fee dispute between Larry Birkhead and his ex-attorney Debra Opri continues, and it may have a role in the upcoming tell-all being planned by another one of Larry’s former allies — OK! Magazine.
According to TMZ the book Blond Ambition: The Untold Story Behind Anna Nicole’s Death, penned by Rita Cosby, will make some rather startling claims — reportedly supported by documents — about the legal manner in which Larry arrived at fatherhood. Specifically, Rita alleges that Larry purchased daughter Dannielynn Birkhead from Anna Nicole’s partner Howard K. Stern, who at one time claimed to be the child’s father. Larry, for his part, claims that Cosby was supplied the "confidential" documentation as "payback" for referring Larry to Debra and that the allegations are completely false. Says Larry,
If that’s what’s in her book, then she’ll be sued. And on top of that, there will be other individuals sued over confidential information in my custody case. OK! is on notice those allegations are false, and if they print them as truth, they will be sued as well. I’ll go after any media outlet that prints those lies from that book.
The book ($16.79) is not available until Tuesday, but can be pre-ordered here. Dannielynn will turn 1-year-old on Sept. 7.
