Smith died on February 8, 2007 in a Hollywood, Florida hotel room as a result of an overdose of prescription drugs. Within the final six months of her life, Smith was the focus of a renewed press coverage surrounding the death of her son, Daniel and the paternity and custody battle over her newborn daughter,
