LATEST: Photographer LARRY BIRKHEAD has blasted claims he abused late model Anna Nicole Smith. Smith's former bodyguard Alex Denk claimed Smith was abused by her ex-boyfriend Birkhead after an argument last year (06). However, Birkhead, who DNA tests revealed was the father of Smith's daughter seven-month-old Dannielynn last month (10Apr07), refutes the claims. He says, "I've spoken to him about that, and it's not true. There was no abuse. Plus, he wasn't there. It was a simple argument when we were in South Carolina. "If Anna wanted to go somewhere, she would knock me down and go. There was no abuse or being held against her will."
