Birkhead's lawyer wants her share

Tbddebra053107 Are you still recovering from Anna Nicole Smith fatigue? Well too bad, because now the sharks are turning on each other. Debra Opri, former attorney for Larry Birkhead, has sued the winner of the Dannielynn lotto because daddy didn’t pay his legal bills, the AP says.

The suit doesn’t specify a dollar amount, but calls for arbitration to determine how much Larry owes after Opri’s work which was “extensive, entailed hundreds of hours of work” and required her to travel to multiple states and outside the country.

Opri withdrew from Birkhead’s paternity case for some unknown reason in the thick of the battle, and Birkhead told TMZ there were very good reasons she had to go. Yes, Larry, but there were millions of reasons for her to stay on the case, too.
