Larry Birkhead, Anna Nicole Smith’s ex-boyfriend and baby daddy to little Dannielynn Hope, was due to testify in court Thursday in the preliminary hearing against Howard K Stern, Dr Khristine Eroshevich and Dr. Sandeep Kapoor.

However, the day was passed with testimony by Anna’s former bodyguard, Maurice Brighthaupt, and Birkhead is now scheduled to give testimony Friday.

Birkhead was ordered to return to court Friday morning at 9.30am, and he’s raring to go. Birkhead told "I'm ready to go, I was ready two days ago."

Meantime, during grueling cross examination from Howard K. Stern's lawyer, Steve Sadow Brighthaupt was questioned about statements he made to the press after Anna Nicole died.

"I intentionally lied when I said I never saw Anna Nicole take prescription drugs, or Howard injecting her. I thought it was what a good friend/bodyguard would say to protect her name," Brighthaupt said.

Sadow questioned the timing of Brighthaupt talking to California Department of Justice Special Agent Santiago. Brighthaupt said he "ducked" Santiago's calls for months after Anna died.

Sadow asked Brighthaupt if the reason why he finally called Santiago back was because  two days previously Howard K Stern went on Larry King Live and accused Brighthaupt of stealing from Anna's estate. "I didn't call Santiago back at that time because I was accused of being a thief," Brighthaupt insisted.
