Larry Birkhead, one of the three men who claim to be the father of Anna Nicole Smithâ€™s baby, is splitting with the prestigious Beverly Hills attorney who has been representing him in the case.
Attorney Debra Opri revealed in a statement yesterday, â€œ[We] have terminated our attorney-client relationship effective immediately.â€ She added, â€œI wish Larry the very best of luck in his continuing efforts to prove that he is Dannielynnâ€™s biological father. My prayers will be with Larry and Dannielynn always.â€ She did not reveal the reason why she was leaving. There was no word on who will replace attorney Opri. Calls to attorney Opri and a representative for Birkhead werenâ€™t immediately returned yesterday.
