Anna Nicole Smith's psychiatrist put in a massive drug order for the model just months before her death, requesting a cocktail of pills that included 300 methadone tablets and "hospital heroin" from a pharmacist who refused to fill the "suicidal" prescription, explosive unsealed affidavits revealed Monday.

Smith's psychiatrist Dr. Khristine Eroshevich ordered two sedatives, 300 meth tablets, a muscle relaxer, an anti-inflammatory drug and four bottles of a painkiller known as "hospital heroin" from a pharmacist, who denied the psychiatrist's request because the order could've killed Smith, the Los Angeles Times reported Monday.

"They are going to kill her with this," the pharmacist said he thought when the order was filled, according to the affidavits obtained by the Times.

The prescription was "pharmaceutical suicide," the pharmacist said.

The affidavits claim that Eroshevich and internist Sandeep Kapoor gave Smith, who died from an overdose of prescription meds, access to a host of dangerous and addictive drugs.

The explosive affidavits also reveal that both doctors had sexual relations with Smith, the model who was known for marrying a man nearly three times her age and baring it all as a Playboy playmate.

Smith's former boyfriend and lawyer Howard K. Stern, who starred with Smith on her 2002 E! reality program "The Anna Nicole Show," was charged along with Eroshevich and Kapoor earlier this year with conspiring to provide the star controlled substances. They all pleaded not guilty to the charges, and a preliminary hearing is set for next month.

Smith's son Daniel died in the Bahamas just months before Smith herself died unexpectedly on Feb. 8, 2007.

The model's body was found in a Florida hotel room. Smith was 39.
