Howard K. Stern reunites with Anna Nicole Smith's baby daughter
UPI News Service, 02/12/2007
The scene shifted from the United States to the Bahamas as figures in the custody battle for Anna Nicole Smith's 5-month-old daughter went to the island.
In addition to custody, ownership of the home Smith and Howard K. Stern shared is in question, E! Online said Monday. Smith said the property was hers but real estate developer G. Ben Thompson said the house was his and he had simply let Smith live there. A hearing Feb. 26 will determine the owner.
Smith, 39, died Thursday in a Hollywood, Fla., hospital, where she was taken after being found unresponsive in her hotel room. An autopsy was inconclusive on the cause of death.
Stern said he filed a report with Nassau's Royal Bahamian Police after he noticed items -- such as computer equipment, drawings and paintings -- missing from the home.
Smith's mother, Vergie Arthur, traveled to the Bahamas to claim custody of Dannielynn.
Three men claim to be Dannielynn's dad: Stern, Larry Birkhead, a California photographer; Prince Frederic von Anhalt, Zsa Zsa Gabor's husband.
Smith's half-sister claims Smith impregnated herself with frozen sperm of the J. Howard Marshall II, who was Smith's husband when he died.
