How Anna's Mom Learned About Anna -- From Jailbird Ex

3/6/2007 5:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Anna Nicole Smith's estranged mother may have been so desperate for information about her daughter, that she begged a criminal who is still in prison for making criminal threats against Anna, to fill in the blanks.

TMZ has obtained a letter Virgie Arthur wrote to Mark Hatten, a man was acquitted of stalking Anna, asking him to share "memories" of Anna with her, as well as any information he may have had about their infamous mother-daughter rift.

In the letter, dated November 13, 2006, two months after the death of her grandson Daniel, Virgie asks Hatten to "tell [her] the story Vickie told you about what we are not speaking" (Vickie was Anna's birth name) and thanks Hatten for "all the information you did give me ... I WILL GREATLY APPRECIATE ANY MEMORIES THAT YOU COULD SHARE WITH ME." Virgie also asks for pictures and expresses her sorrow to Hatten -- who had a brief relationship with Smith -- for getting "tangled up [sic] the web."

In other correspondence that Hatten shared with TMZ, Hatten claims to have made a sex tape with Anna Nicole, a tape that he fears was stolen from the Bahamas house where Anna was living when she died. "It must be destroyed," says Hatten, who adds that Anna was "against pornography (hardcore)."

It appears this woman is trying to gather enough material to sell her daughter's story and steal her granddaughter's inheritance. She is disgusting.

Sounds like before ANS died she was gathering information about ANNA, to start a book to make some extra cash. But we must understand that this is her mother and we do not know what happened between the two because we were not there (the old saying there is a front cover and a back cover).

I believe that deep down as mad as we get at our parents there will always be loved for them buried deep inside and I have to believe that this girl may have loved her mother two, she was just mixed up in the wrong crowd, remember we all make mistakes in our lives.

Virgie will do ANYTHING to get ANYTHING to make money off of Anna it is so sick that she would stoop and do the things she did....Further more Jackie and Mark Hatten are white trash just like Virgie.....Anna said that her and Jackie were NOT friends and that Mark was a stalker!

Sad. So this is what a "loving" mother would do? Contact a known felon-and ask for info on what her daughter said to him? GIVE ME A *&^%$# BREAK! Virgie, you should be ashamed. No wonder you got booed at the funeral.

Here is a lesson for all you girls out there. Don't be a slut in life and your name will not be dragged through the mud in death.
