The Lights AREN'T On and Anna Is Home

11/13/2006 2:14 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Anna Nicole Smith had her power turned off on Friday, and it wasn't pretty.

The drama played out in the Bahamas, where Smith has been living with her newborn baby and attorney Howard K. Stern. Smith's former "friend," G. Ben Thompson, claims to own the property and wants her out.

Last Friday, Thompson contacted the power company rep to pull the plug.

Without warning, Anna had no juice for her hairdryer, no power to watch herself on "E.T." -- nothing. Four hours later, after lots of threats from her lawyer, the power company agreed to a temporary reprieve until today.

But wait, there's more! Thompson and his son-in-law flew to the Bahamas on Friday and the son-in-law got on the property and served Smith with an eviction lawsuit. We're told Smith ran back inside the house and then appeared on the balcony and, in classic antebellum style, began screaming: "You get off this property. This is a gift and I ain't ever leaving. And I'll show you, Ben, you ain't never gonna see the baby again! You did a declaration for that f***head Larry Birkhead!"

For the record, we're informed that Smith told Thompson back in May that he was the father, only to learn that it was impossible because he had a vasectomy several years ago. Birkhead, Smith's former boyfriend, is currently suing to establish paternity.

We should know by the end of the day if Anna will be burning candles tonight.

Anyway a friend of mine has been going through this for several months and soon or eventually some are going to loose jobs and such over this because of the onesidedness and unlawful things that have been done to this elderly gentleman and there are people that have witnessed these items!

Thanks for the good thoughts for my daughter Patty...she needs it. It's been a LONG year. She should be having some of the best years of her life in high school right now, instead the time is spent at home being fun.

Everyone read TMZ's latest post that HKS is to be interviewed yet again by the police with regards to the Methadone? He's apparently been interviewed quite a few times...and a MAJOR announcement is expected to be made by 12/15. Should be interesting and will probably light this message board up!

I do truly get that Daniel was the only stable person in AN's life. Somehow he turned out to be a pretty darn good kid with a good head on his shoulders, loved his mother more than life and was thrilled to be a big brother. No matter what any of us thinks of AN, she loved that boy SO much. I hope this new baby helps her through her depression, I truly do. Life goes on and with that is the responsibility of paying your bills, etc. Does anyone really think AN writes out checks for her electricity, mortgage, etc? Wouldn't you think she has someone to do that? This ex-boyfriend is clearly stating he NEVER gave her the house as a gift-she was to pay a mortgage on it. I agree the timing of him booting her out sucks but it's HIS house. My gosh, she was paid for the E! show, public appearances and being the Trimspa spokesperson-she's got money. Either pay the mortgage on this house and settle the bill or find another one so this problem goes away. Then she can throw whatever strength she has left into fighting for custody of her daughter.
I do want to say thanks to the person who responded to my post regarding AN waiting 39 days to bury her son. I'm on a different page than your post so I don't remember your name-I apologize for that. You mentioned you have a 21 year old son who you think is awesome. I feel the same about my 16 year old daughter. Thank you for your input on my comment. I do like to hear what people have to say on issues -helps me look at issues in a different light.

Stef-by the way, I do hope you all have a good Turkey Day!
