In bombshell testimony Thursday, Anna Nicole Smith’s former bodyguard, Maurice Brighthaupt, testified how he had saved the troubled model’s life on at least one occasion.
Brighthaupt, also known as ‘Mo’ described in vivid detail how, some time in October 2006, Anna Nicole Smith had overdosed and was at the bottom of a swimming pool. “I jumped in and saved her,” he said. He gave her CPR and she started breathing again.
When asked by the D.A. about the relationship between Anna Nicole and her psychiatrist, Dr. Khristina Eroscevich, Mo said, “Mother and daughter, they were close.” When asked if the relationship was sexual, as widely reported, Adam Braun, Dr. Eroscevich’s lawyer objected, and Judge Perry said, “Sustained, we aren’t going to go there.”
Brighthaupt is currently still under direct examination by the D.A. He hasn’t been cross examined by the defense lawyers yet.
Larry Birkhead, Anna Nicole’s ex-boyfriend and father of her daughter, Dannielynn, is expected to testify Thursday afternoon.
