Report: Howard K. Stern Executor of Anna's Will

2/9/2007 9:10 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

ET is reporting that Anna Nicole Smith did, in fact, have a will. According to the show, it was written before the death of her son Daniel and the birth of daughter Dannielynn -- and names Howard K. Stern as the executor.

The document reportedly named Daniel as her sole heir, but now that she had a daughter, Dannielynn is, as of now, Anna's closest next of kin.

A family law expert tells TMZ that disposition will get sticky depending on what happens with the paternity suit and whether or not Anna and Howard's Bahamian commitment ceremony is deemed legally binding by a probate court. One complex issue is that Howard cannot legally be the executor and a beneficiary of the will.

Anna's complicated legal woes have followed her to the morgue.

also how dare tmz to post photos of her personal belongings of her bedroom stolen from her home not 24 hours after her death!that so called friend and owner of the property went into her home and took pics to further disgrace anna and make her look even worse no one should have such an invasion of privacy! methadone could have been used for reasons that are none of our business! these people are looking to cash in on her and howards nightmare and they should be prosecuted for theft they stole her stuff and thats that! totally discredits their claims! poor anna poor howard poor baby danny! everyone has secrets and how would you feel if this happened in your bedroom closet ? news media please stop making assumptions that howard had something to do with annas death and raising suspicions with out knowing the facts!

What does that mean, that Stern didn't have much of an identity? He surely wasn't famous, but fame doesn't make a person who they are,,, it just puts them in others' minds. No one knows a whole lot about him; assuming the worst says more about the person assuming than it does about Stern.

To #155
assume all YOU want... its obvious to those of us that do not, fumble throught life with blinder on that this guy HKS, is a WEIRDO. and out for himself.. otherwise he would have sought some help for Anna, rather than standing by and seemingly pimping her out, to the media, as well as the pic's from her dead son... think about it #155

LARRY BIRKHEAD IS THE BABY'S DADDY!!!
He seems sincere in his love for DannieLynn & Anna.
So far unlike Anna's "commitment partner" he has NOT
sold his soul to the devil (aka THE INSIDER &
ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT).
He has only spoke through his attorney & only to do
what any truly caring parent would do...he wants to
be in his daughter's life!
Remember he reported months ago about Anna's drug use
during pregnancy.
Looks like it is playing out to be the truth now.

IF Howard K. "Killer" $tern even THOUGHT he was the
real daddy he would have ran all the way to the
courthouse & swabbed his own damn mouth. He was
OBSESSED w/ her!
A case of real life "FATAL ATTRACTION".

Zsa Zsa's old man is just an attention seeker. Hell,
he bought his "Prince" title for Pete's sake!

IF J. Howard Marshall (the old man billionaire) was
the daddy (from his "saved" sperm) Anna & HK$ would
have broke their damn necks to file for mega-bucks
due to having an "HEIR" to the Marshall
estate...YEARS AGO!
THAT has been the reason old Howie has been hanging
around anyway...waiting for a big pay-off.!

The Denk DICK bodyguard/chef/personal trainer/friend/lover/jack of all trades? Where the
hell was he at when Larry filed for DNA test months
ago? Anna is not here to contest his claim to fame!!!

I can't believe a judge has not stopped this crap
months ago! Because they are getting paid off to
delay the testing????
Howard's day are numbered. No one is gonna pay for
his stories once he is named as NOT being the daddy.
He'd better milk it for all its worth while he can
because his "GRAVY TRAIN HAS DERAILED!!!"
I will be so happy to see him wearing a prison
uniform & hearing how BIG DANNY in CELL BLOCK B is
using him as a love toy!!!
(I say BIG DANNY as opposed to Big Bubba in honor of
Daniel).

Anna's mother raised Daniel the first 6 years of his
life.
IF she was so bad/abusive why did Anna leave her
"beloved" son Daniel with her while she was
stripping in those "gentlemen's clubs"?
Virgie has retired after 28 years as a sheriff's
deputy so she must be somewhat stable to keep a job
for so long.

The reason for the dispute between Anna & her mother?
HOWARD K. $TERN!
It appears anyone who cared about ANS was basically "ran off" by the bastard.
Watch the many videos/interviews/photographs he is ALWAYS right next to her often interrupting her during
interviews.
Glaring w/ his "John Mark Carr" evil eyes at ANY
opponent who might steal his "beloved" from him.
Ply her w/ drugs so she is easier to deal with.
Geez, how could he control her & manipulate her if
she had people around?
Anna had relationships w/ her family/friends until
HK$ arrived on the scene.
Look at the facts:
Larry Birkhead - DannieLynn's REAL Daddy
Virgie Arthur - Anna's Mother
Donna - Anna's sister (who BTW was writing her book
BEFORE Anna's death...come on if they're such dumb
trailer trash people do you HONESTLY think she could
write a book in 2 days? You can't have it BOTH ways
folks!
Billy Smith - Daniel's Father
Kimmie Walther - Anna's Bi-Sexual Friend from her
show...rumored to have been blamed & ran off by HK$
for stealing Anna's money...yeah right, like HE
wasn't?? - by the way she has a myspace account if
you wanna write her...http://www.myspace.com/bzargirl
Jackie Hatten - Friend
Laurie Payne - Friend
The Barbi Twins - 2 Friends
Shelly Cloud - Anna's Cousin...no contact in 10
years???...damn, I seem to recall her being on the
Anna Nicole Show in 2002 (?) & HK$ telling her to go
away Anna wasn't home when she clearly was.
Shelly's Mom - The Aunt ANS lived w/ some
Chyna - Friend (or Stalker if you believe ANAL Mrs.
CEO TrimSpa)
GOD KNOWS WHO ELSE????
All of these people were distanced from ANS so that
HK$ could get her to fall in “love” w/ his creepy
ass.

Who were the only ones "allowed" around ANS?
HK$ (aka Howard K. Stern, Howard Killed the Smiths) -
PSYCHO
The TrimSpa CEO & his anal wife - they know so d@mn
much about her & her "friends" but don't know she's
drinking SlimFast? Funny how he said the SlimFast was
a violation (set-up he said on Larry King Live) but
NOT the Methadone & other injectable drugs. LOL
WTF??? I guess he knew she had to be high to rely on
TrimSpa Baby to lose weight! LOL - gotta have them
around to make some moolah via TrimSpa Baby!
Shane Gibson - Immigration Minister - gotta get that
permanent residency - I find it kinda weird that he
attended her baby shower, was on her bed hugging her,
etc. - How many U.S. citizens had so much as your
Mayor o

She made him her executor and the care giver to her son should something happen.Well it happened.Howard is the only one who isn't selling her out.He loved her and he was in awe of her! Has anyone noticed ANS was 39 years old.I don't believe anyone made Anna doing anything.Birkhead knew she was an addict,she always has been,why wasn't it a problem for him for all the time they were dating?Every single one of these people that are coming out of the woodwork knew Anna was doing drugs?So why is it solely Howards fault?She was Anna nicole Smith,perhaps he was a bit more than whipped??As for daneils death,is it so hard to believe that the son of an addict became an addict?Is howard the family babysitter?How many of us know someone who is an alcohoic or addict??Watch out,if they die,you might be charged!

If anyone brough anna to the hospital,we'd be having a feild day with that too.This poor dude couldn't win from loosing
If they brought her to the hospital,we'd be saying Anna overdosed,anna tried to kill herself.
It is not so far fetched for a clebrity not to go to the hospital.They call in their own doctors..which Howard did!!!!
Why is this even an issue?
Anna's dead,so now you bash the next best thing...Howard! In case we didn't notice,a 39 year old woman is resposible for herself.I hardly believe howard poured the methadone down her throat.Anna was doing what anna was doing and howard is the only one who really had her back.He could be making a killing by writing a manuscript(Like her family??)Or sellin her out(like her FREINDS)But he only wants what anna wanted..for her to be buried with her son.Has anyone realized anna put howards name on that birth certificate?She went to the bahamas to have that baby.She knew what larry was gonna do.All Howard is guilty of is Loving and worshipping anna nicole.

I am totally in awe of this story,Anna Nicole firstly was one of the most beautiful women i've ever seen which is why all the media coverage is all the more tantalizing. You think of that woman rotting in a morgue and you have to think what a tragedy.I hope Howard K Stern IS THE FATHER I know a man in love and he was very smitten with Anna,sometimes we don't know how to help the ones we love most ,as the child of a addict I am even guilty of enabling my mothers drug use have given her money for drugs,but that doesn't mean i DON'T LOVE HER. i BELIEVE Howard and Anna had a codependent relationship but i hope they bury her in the bahamas with Danielle as i know she would have wanted it ,her mom needs to go back to Texas and leave Howard and Danilllynn alone. I also think she died of a broken heart ,the death of her son was too much to bear.

TO ANNA NICOLE SMITH OUR MODERN DAY MARILYN MONROE REST IN PEACE!

I REALLY FEEL HOWARD K STERN REALLY LOVED ANNA AND I FEEL VERY SORRY FOR HIM TO HAVE TO GO THROUGH THIS. HE CAN'T EVEN MOURN THE DEATH OF THE ONE HE LOVED MOST IN THIS WORLD. I FEEL HOWARD AND HIS FAMILY WOULD TAKE THE BEST CARE OF DANIELLYNN AND I REALLY DON'T BELIEVE HE IS IN IT FOR THE MONEY, HIS FAMILY HAS MONEY. I THINK HE TRUELY LOVES THE BABY AND NOW THAT ANNA IS GONE THAT IS THE ONE THING HE HAS TO HOLD ON TO. I THINK LARRY WOULD LET ANNA'S FAMILY IN ON DANELLYNN WHICH FROM WHAT I HAVE SEEN ANNA SAY ON TV, SHE DDID NOT WANT ANYONE SHE CARED ABOUT AROND HER MOTHER. MAYBE HER MOTHER ABUSED HER..??..... ANYWAY, I AM PULLING FOR HOWARD BECAUSE I FEEL THIS IS WHAT ANNA WOULD HAVE WANTED. MY PRAYERS ARE WITH HOWARD AND DANNYLYNN.
