Virgie: I Didn't Pay for My Bahamas Flight

2/21/2007 5:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Anna Nicole Smith's mother, Virgie Arthur, just told the court that her round-trip airplane fare for a recent trip from Houston to the Bahamas was paid for by a third party. She traveled with sister-in-law Elaine Tabor, and someone she called "a close friend" of the family, David Leigh, identified as a journalist with Splash News.

She could not identify precisely where Leigh lived in Florida, and said he did not know Daniel Smith, even though he was present at a memorial service for him in the Bahamas in January.

Arthur revealed that she receives approximately $3500 per month in pension, and that her husband makes $600 per week, upon being asked by Judge Larry Seidlin.

And the family friends just "happen" to be from a news organization? I'd be less skeptical if that "family friend" didn't turn around and publish the images that he helped pay to procure . . .

Gimme a break    

Pathological liars sometimes cannot get their own lies straight.
Just disgusting. She should be ashamed of herself. All of this while her daughter lies deteriorating in a medical examiner's building. What goes around comes around Virgie.
