Larry Birkhead thinks his daughter is better off without grandmother Virgie Smith in her life. “Virgie continues to fight for custody in the Bahamas. She wants control of the money — that came straight from her mouth,” Larry, who was awarded custody of his 13-month-old daughter Dannielynn with Anna Nicole Smith, tells In Touch. Larry also blames Virgie for the poor light in which he and Anna Nicole are portrayed in the book, Blonde Ambition. “She obviously was working with” the author, he says.
