More details are surfacing regarding the role Howard K. Stern played in Anna Nicole Smith’s drug use, including an incident where Howard cooked a crushed Valium pill on a spoon and injected Anna with the drug.
According to celebrity website PerezHilton.com, Smith’s former bodyguard, Maurice Brighthaupt, testified yesterday in the case against Stern, Dr. Sandeep Kapoor, and Dr. Khristine Eroshevich, and revealed a shocking story about Smith’s time in the Bahamas with Stern.
Brighthaupt unveiled an incident in which Smith began “begging” for drugs to help her deal with the loss of her son Daniel. (He also overdosed.) Brighthaupt watched Smith lie naked in an adjoining bedroom while Stern provided her what whatever drugs she wanted.
“I saw him drawing up liquid from the spoon that was being cooked. She couldn’t swallow. Anna and Howard felt if they put it in the blood system that it would get into her system quicker.”
Brighthaupt said that he saw Stern do this for Smith “four or five” times between then and the day of her death, and also saw Dr. Eroshevich deliver chloral hydrate to the Bahamas to inject Smith at least once.
