Anna Nicole Smith Found Dead

Recommended Posts

What a tragedy. She was so beautiful, but hurting inside. She will be missed. Anna has been bombarded by the media ever since giving birth in the Bahamas and then tragically losing her elder son just three days later. A series of allegations surrounding the paternity of Smith's daughter have arisen, leading to a massive amount of stress for the actress/former Playboy model. Now, Smith is making headlines again after she reportedly collapsed at a Florida Hard Rock Casino. Was it suicide? Or was she killed, knowing that all the money will go to her kid, and the father will get the money in trust.

 

 

As of 4:00 p.m., the Broward County Medical Examiner had been dispatched to retrieve the Anna's body. We should know the cause of death by 9:30 am tomorrow morning. I smell a Law and Order, Ripped from the headlines episode. If anyone is interested here is their number.

 

5301 S.W. 31st Avenue,

Fort Lauderdale, FL 33312

Main - 954-327-6500

FAX - 954-327-6580

 

Smith was allegedly rushed to hospital after she collapsed at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida. MSNBC reports that a Hollywood fire department spokesperson said Anna Nicole Smith was unresponsive when the rescue unit arrived at the scene. TMZ has reported that emergency responders performed CPR at the scene, and that a breathing apparatus had to be inserted into Smith's throat. Anna Nicole Smith was then rushed to Memorial Regional Hospital just after 2:00p.m. local time.

 

Media reports indicate that Anna Nicole Smith was found to be unconscious and unresponsive in her hotel room at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. Further details of the incident have not been released.

 

News of Anna Nicole Smith's collapse come just days after Smith and the diet company TrimSpa were named in a class-action lawsuit that alleges the company's marketing of their weight loss pill is false or misleading. The lawsuit is aimed at trying to stop Anna Nicole and TrimSpa from making claims that their pill can make people lose large amounts of weight. Smith was named in the lawsuit as she is the spokesperson from TrimSpa.

 

The class-action lawsuit is the most recent trouble for the former Playboy model turned heiress turned reality TV star. The former star of The Anna Nicole Show gave birth to her daughter, Dannielynn Hope Marshall Stern, on September 7 of last year. Though the paternity of the baby was later questioned, Anna Nicole Smith claimed the father of the child was her longtime personal attorney, Howard K. Stern. Smith's former boyfriend, Larry Birkhead, has challenged the paternity in court, and Smith now has until February 21 to submit the child to paternity testing.

 

Three days after the birth of her daughter, Smith's 20-year-old son, Daniel Smith, died suddenly in his mother's hotel room. Smith hired forensic pathologist Cyril Wecht to perform a private autopsy of Daniel Smith, which revealed that Daniel died of a lethal combination of the prescription drugs Zoloft, Lexapro and methadone.

Now, Smith is making headlines again after she reportedly collapsed at a Florida Hard Rock Casino. Was it suicide? Or was she killed, knowing that all the money will go to her kid, and the father will get the money in trust.

I find it a bit odd that she and her son would both die within months of each other. If the cororner says it was from heart failure this story will fly for months. I bet that Stern creep offed her.

 

News Reports are also surfacing that Anna Nicole suffered a high fever last night. She had been at the hotel since Monday.

This is so sad. She was a beautiful woman that got caught up in the wrong crowd. I think you are right that she was killed by Stern. He was seen flushing Methadone down the toilet at the home he shared with Smith in The Bahamas shortly after his partner's son was found dead in the hospital room where she delivered her baby daughter.

 

My friend just sent me the video of her being taken to the Medical Examiner's office.

There is an Anna Nicole death tape that reportedly shows her final moments. According to a report from Fox News, footage of the final moments of Playboy Playmate Anna Nicole Smith's life has sparked a media bidding war, with estimates already topping $250,000. According to the report from Fox News, paparazzi agency Splash News has a videotape of the Playboy playmate and it is for sale.

 

The report from Fox claims that shows paramedics working on the unresponsive reality star as she was wheeled from the Hard Rock Hotel in Hollywood, Fla., Thursday afternoon.

The mother of former Playboy playmate and model Anna Nicole Smith blamed drugs Friday for her daughter’s sudden death that ended an extraordinary tabloid life at just 39.

 

“I think she had too many drugs, just like Danny," her mother, Vergie Arthur, told ABC’s “Good Morning America” today, referring to Smith's son. “I tried to warn her about drugs and the people she hung around with. She didn’t listen.

 

“She was too drugged up.”

 

Smith’s attorney, Ron Rale, said the one-time reality TV star had been ill for several days with a fever and was still depressed over the death five months ago of her 20-year-old son from what a private medical examiner determined was a combination of methadone and two antidepressants.

 

On Thursday, authorities say, a private nurse found Smith unconscious in her room at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino and called 911. A bodyguard performed CPR, Seminole Police Chief Charlie Tiger said, but Smith was declared dead at a hospital.

 

Later Thursday, two sheriff’s deputies carried out at least eight brown paper bags sealed with red evidence tape from Smith’s hotel room.

 

Edwina Johnson, chief investigator for the Broward County Medical Examiner’s

Office, said the cause of death was under investigation and an autopsy would be conducted Friday.

 

If Smith died of natural causes, the findings will likely be announced quickly, but definitive results could take weeks, said Dr. Jose Perper, who was to perform the autopsy.

 

“I am not a prophet, and I cannot tell you before the autopsy what I am going to find,” he said.

 

 

Through the ’90s and into the 21st Century, Smith was famous for being famous, a pop-culture punchline because of her up-and-down weight, her Marilyn Monroe looks, her exaggerated curves, her little-girl voice, her ditzy-blonde persona and her over-the-top revealing outfits.

 

Recently, she lost a reported 69 pounds and became a spokeswoman for TrimSpa, a weight-loss supplement. In recent TV appearances, her speech was often slurred and she seemed out of it. Some critics said she seemed drugged.

 

“Undoubtedly it will be found at the end of the day that drugs featured in her death as they did in the death of poor Daniel,” said Michael Scott, a former attorney for Smith in the Bahamas.

 

Rale said he had talked to her on Tuesday or Wednesday, and she had flu symptoms and a fever and was still grieving over her son. He dismissed claims that her death was related to drugs as “a bunch of nonsense.”

 

“Poor Anna Nicole,” he said. “She’s been the underdog. She’s been besieged ... and she’s been trying her best and nobody should have to endure what she’s endured.”

 

The Texas-born Smith was a topless dancer at a strip club before she made the cover of Playboy magazine in 1992. She became Playboy’s playmate of the year in 1993. She was also signed to a contract with Guess jeans, appearing in TV commercials, billboards and magazine ads.

 

In 1994, she married 89-year-old oil tycoon J. Howard Marshall II, owner of Great Northern Oil Co. After his death the following year, she engaged in a protracted legal fight with her former stepson, E. Pierce Marshall, over whether she had a right to the estate.

 

A federal court in California awarded Smith $474 million. That was later overturned. But in May, the U.S. Supreme Court revived her case, ruling that she deserved another day in court.

 

Smith starred in her own reality TV series, “The Anna Nicole Show,” in 2002-04. She also appeared in movies, performing a bit part in “The Hudsucker Proxy” in 1994.

Smith was born Vickie Lynn Hogan on Nov. 28, 1967, in Houston, one of six children. Her parents split up when she was a toddler, and she was raised by her mother, a deputy sheriff.

 

She dropped out after 11th grade when she was expelled for fighting, and worked as a waitress and then a cook at Jim’s Krispy Fried Chicken restaurant in Mexia.

 

She married 16-year-old fry cook Bill Smith in 1985, giving birth to Daniel before divorcing two years later.
