Anna Nicole Smith: Dead Broke

By Wyatt Earp | March 20, 2010

Wow, I just realized that headline was in very bad taste. It is appropriate, though, since a federal appeals court just determined that the late Anna Nicole Smith – and her daughter – deserved none of the money from her 89-year old “husband’s” estate.

While I am giggling on the outside, I can assure my heart is breaking. Or not:

Anna Nicole Smith’s estate is not entitled to $300 million the deceased actress had claimed was intended as a gift from her oil tycoon husband, a federal appeals court ruled Friday.

Smith, a former Playboy pinup and stripper, fought for more than a decade with a son of J. Howard Marshall over a fortune estimated as much as $1.6 billion.

It was a court battle that outlived the chief combatants. Marshall’s son, E. Pierce Marshall, died in 2006, and Smith died in 2007 from what a Florida medical examiner ruled was “acute combined drug intoxication.” Her 3-year-old daughter is her sole heir.

Wow. What else is there to say? Except maybe this . . .

    I wonder if all those who were fighting for custody and claiming paternity of the daughter will be as enthusiastic now? Or am I just being cynical?

    Well, I don’t think “Flat Broke” would work.

    Proof – No, they are most likely jumping ship.

    Mrs. Crankipants – Heh, nice one.

    It all seems kind of petty to me. The estate is estimated to be 1.6 BILLION. Seems like the son could’ve cut a check for 300 million and told Anna “You’re a very expensive whore, the old man died happy, thanks for your services, don’t ever contact us again.” I wonder how much was spent in litigation for the past decade? And since neither party survived it, the damn lawyers are the ones who made any money. Stupid from the ground up, I’d say.

    mpur – Guy was pretty stubborn, and the stress probably killed him.

    Skip – It’s classic, in my opinion.
