PRESSING ISSUES Birkhead, Opri (inset) (Photos: Getty Images)

Larry Birkhead says he's no press whore.

In fact, he tells, it's his former attorney Debra Opri who has tried to strong-arm him into paying an alleged $620,000 debt to her by appearing on an "Oprah-like" show with her and his daughter Dannielynn.

"She won't be happy until I'm sitting on the couch with Oprah and my daughter saying I owe her everything," Birkhead says in an exclusive to "We'll just go take it to court and see who wins."

The bio-dad of the late Anna Nicole Smith's baby insists he spent thousands in mediation trying to work out a settlement with Opri but that the negotiations came down to him declaring publicly that he owed her everything, including the custody of his daughter. "My child is very healthy and happy, no thanks to her. My DNA tests were ordered into the Bahamas, and she still wants to take all the credit for it."
