Anna Nicole's drug dealers

A pharmacist warned doctors for Anna Nicole Smith that the drugs prescribed for the blond bombshell amounted to "pharmaceutical suicide."

Anna Nicole's drug dealersAn investigation is underway on the role of psychiatrist Khristine Eroshevich and internist Sandeep Kapoor in the overdose death of Anna Nicole Smith in 2007.

According to unsealed affidavits, Smith's doctors were warned that the multitude of drugs prescribed to the model after her son's death were a deadly combination by three separate pharmacists.

The above-quoted pharmacist refused to fill the prescriptions and recalled thinking, "They are going to kill her with this."

Five days after Anna Nicole's son died, the first drug request came in: two sedatives, 300 tablets of methadone, a muscle relaxer, an anti-inflammatory drug and four bottles of strong painkillers.

Documents also claim both doctors crossed professional boundaries by carrying on sexual affairs with the former Playboy model.

The doctors and Anna Nicole's attorney Howard K Stern pleaded not guilty in May 2009 to illegally providing her with controlled substances. A preliminary hearing is set for October.
