Larry Birkhead Talks To Us Magazine
In an interview with Us on September 3, Larry Birkhead railed against a new book by Rita Cosby titled Blonde Ambition: The Untold Story Behind Anna Nicole Smith’s Death, in which she claims that Larry and Howard K Stern were lovers. “Zero truth to it," Larry told Us. "I don’t know how Cosby can print lies like that without once attempting to contact me. That’s journalism 101.” (Cosby, a former MSNBC journalist, did not respond to requests for comment.) So why did Howard and Larry attend L.A.’s Gay Pride parade in June 2005, where Anna was grand marshal? “I was a photographer,” Larry explained to Us. “My camera is around my neck in every picture." Among the other allegations? That Larry and Howard struck a deal giving Larry custody of Dannielynn (who turns 1 on September 7) in exchange for Howard being named executor of Anna’s estate, worth a potential $472 million; and that Anna considered Larry a “sperm donor,” whom she never intended to keep around. “It’s bogus,” said Larry.
