Anna Nicole Smith's former lover LARRY BIRKHEAD has ended a long-standing monetary dispute with a former attorney by agreeing to a settlement.
The photojournalist became embroiled in a complicated legal fight with celebrity lawyer Debra Opri in 2007 after she sent him a bill for over $600,000 (£387,00) for her work representing him in his custody battle over the late actress/model's daughter Dannielynn.
She then sued him over claims he had refused to pay for her service and asked a judge to settle the matter.
Birkhead then countersued Opri, accusing her of owing him over £505,000 (£316,000) that she secured him as part of a reality TV deal with U.S. network Bravo.
However, legal filings obtained by TMZ.com show the case has now been settled for an undisclosed amount.
Birkhead alleged he was Dannielynn's father after she was born in September 2006 and a DNA test taken the following year (07) proved his claims.
