TMZ Story Triggers Fireworks in Smith Case

2/21/2007 7:10 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

A story TMZ posted last night has caused an uproar in the Anna Nicole case.

The lawyer for Smith's mother asked Stern why his lawyer faxed a copy of Anna's will five days before she died. TMZ obtained a fax cover sheet showing that Ron A. Rale, Stern's lawyer faxed the will on February 3, 2007. Stern, who acknowledged the story had been reported on TMZ, first said the date on the fax must be a mistake. He added that he didn't talk to Ron Rale about Anna's will until after she passed.
Smith's will
A heated argument ensued, with the lawyer asking how Stern could explain the date on the fax. The implication -- Stern was out to change Anna's will. The judge ended the examination on this issue without resolution.

Howard's a LIAR

Actually...maybe Anna did that to ADD Dannielynn to the will, which the current will excluded her in.

Isn't it possible the date on the fax machine is set incorrectly?

Thanks to TMZ for the fax, methadone in the fridge, and all the other facts this jerk tries to hide. The creep had to say the date on the fax was wrong. SURE bloodsucker.

As fishy as the whole faxing of the Will before she died really is, why is it not clear to these lawyers and judge that the date and time is a programable item on the fax machine. It's a possiblity that it was programmed in incorrectly. The Texas lawyer sounds so back hills and ignorant.

TEXAS and this Judge ARE scum. Forcing HKS to disclose Anna's drug use and attemping to make him look money hungry. I can't believe this judge is allowing this line of questioning. It is CLEAR what Anna wanted, drugged out or NOT! UGH!!!!!

He just flat denied ANY knowledge of it!!! THAT WAS REALLY STUPID!!!!!
He would have been much better off to have the story that Anna Nicole intended to update the will because of Dannielyn, etc.
WHAT A SORRY ATTORNEY HE MUST BE/AND HAVE111
To just flat deny knowledge of it is STUPID!!! Phone calls can be traced, etc.
THIS DENIAL WILL COME BACK AND BITE HIM BIG TIME!!!!

This is crazzzy. They are bringing in evidence without anyone knowing how all this was obtained. All these things can be manufactured. None of this is evidence.

>>>JUDGE SEIDLIN,
Please ask if Howard K. Stern's Parents were paid the money from the interviews!!! Find out EXACTLLY how much money his parents wired him this year, ( since he would answer the question) , If it was more than a retired teacher could afford, Your Honor needs to get Howards parents bank records, and check ALL wires to the Bahamas to Howard or his Alias Bank Accounts, and even a ACCOUNT IN DANNILYNN'S name!!! His BODY LANGUAGE says it all!! HE is SWAYING in his chair again & drinking out of a EMPTY CUP!!!! PLEASE JUDGE SEIDLIN..... ask these question!!

>>>JUDGE SEIDLIN,
Pull Howard's & Howard's parents TAX RETURNS for the past 4 years.
Howard's sister has went on Larry King and ET and stated that Howard's parents have been supporting him for "10 YEARS"!! There is a BANK ACCOUNT in the BAHAMAS either in DANNILYNN'S name or HOWARD'S ALIAS, that the money from these INTERVIEW'S & PHOTO'S have been DEPOSITED INTO!! FUNDS for the interviews/photos were most likely paid 3rd Party to HOWARD'S PARENT'S or EVEN HIS SISTER!!!! Your Honor needs to check these things out.

JUDGE>>>> ASK what DRUGS Anna was on while 8 Month's Preg. during the CLOWN tape HOWARD RECORDED!!

JUDGE>>>>HOWARD PUPILS are DILIATED AGAIN today, DO a drug test on him, to see if he is FIT to have DANNILYNN in his CARE!!!

Why hasn't CHILD PROTECTIVE SERVICES not checked out HOWARD completely, to see if he is "FIT" (DRUGS) to even take care of a CHILD that is NOT EVEN HIS CHILD????

OH..... seems like HOWARD is reading TMZ!! VERY INTERESTING!!!
