    Anna Nicole Smith dies after collapsing in Florida
    swapContent('firstHeader','applyHeader');By Karen Thomas, USA TODAY
    HOLLYWOOD, Fla. — Anna Nicole Smith died Thursday afternoon after collapsing in a Hollywood, Fla. hotel, local police said.
    The former Playboy playmate collapsed Thursday afternoon and was found unresponsive in her room at the Hard Rock Seminole Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Fla., says Los Angeles attorney Ron Rale, who represents Smith in an ongoing lawsuit regarding the paternity of her daughter. Smith was rushed by ambulance shortly after 2 p.m. to nearby Memorial Regional Hospital, where she died.

    Smith had checked into the hotel Monday evening and was due to check out Friday, said Danielle Giordaano, a hotel spokeswoman.
    Hotel president Michael Bloom said Smith "was obviously in distress." He said Smith, who has been living in the Bahamas, did not have daughter Dannielynn with her at the hotel. She was accompanied by her longtime lawyer and companion Howard K. Stern, and four others, including a nurse. Smith was hospitalized in November with pneumonia.
    Seminole, Fla. Police Chief Charlie Tiger told reporters that Smith's personal nurse found Smith unconscious in her room at 1:39 p.m. ET Thursday. Police were called at 1:45 p.m. "for a person needing medical assistance," Tiger said.
    When police arrived, they found Smith, who was being given CPR by her bodyguard, he said.
    Five minutes later hotel security and emergency medical technicians responded to her room and contacted local fire and rescue teams.
    Edwina Johnson, chief investigator of the Broward County Medical Examiner's Office, said the cause of death is under investigation and an autopsy will be done on Friday.
    Smith's daughter is the center of an ongoing paternity battle with Smith's ex-boyfriend Larry Birkhead. A judge ordered this week that Smith must complete DNA testing to determine Dannielynn's father by February 21. Smith's companion Stern has said that he is the baby's father.
    Smith gave birth to her daughter in the Bahamas in September. Three days later, her son Daniel, 20, died of a drug overdose while visiting Smith in her hospital room.
    "I am very, very sad, but I am not shocked," Smith's former publicist, David Granoff, told MSNBC. He said he had seen Smith on television Wednesday "and she had no spark any more."
    "I had it in the back of my mind that something like this was going to happen," he said.
    Smith had been a tabloid staple even before she became Playboy's playmate of the year in 1993. Readers were fascinated by her bombshell good looks, her marriage to an elderly billionaire and subsequent court fight over his estate, her weight fluctuations, and last year, the sudden death of her 20-year-old son, Daniel Smith.
    A former topless dancer, she made her name squeezing into Guess jeans. She resembled the late actress Marilyn Monroe, a similarity played up in her Guess magazine ads, billboards and department store displays.
    In 1994, she married 89-year-old oil tycoon J. Howard Marshall II, the head of oil-based Koch Industries, which is part of a family fortune worth at least $400 million.
    He died in 1995, setting off a feud with her former stepson, E. Pierce Marshall, over whether she had a right to his estate.
    A federal court in California awarded Smith $474 million in a complicated legal twist that began after she declared bankruptcy. That was later overturned.
    But in May, the U.S. Supreme Court revived her case, ruling that she deserved another day in court in her battle with her former stepson.
    The justices said only that federal courts in California could deal with her case despite a Texas state court ruling that Marshall was the sole heir to the estate.
    Then, the stepson died June 20 at age 67. But the family said the court fight would continue.
    Daniel Smith died Sept. 10 in his mother's hospital room in the Bahamas, just days after she gave birth to a daughter.
    An American medical examiner hired by the family, Cyril Wecht, said he had methadone and two antidepressants in his system when he died. Low levels of the three drugs interacted to cause an accidental death, Wecht said.
    Meanwhile, the paternity of her now 5-month-old daughter remained a matter of dispute.
    She was born Vickie Lynn Hogan on Nov. 28, 1967, in Houston, one of six children of Donald Eugene and Virgie Hart Hogan.
    She married Bill Smith in 1985, giving birth to Daniel before divorcing two years later.
    I do not have a psychiatrist and I do not want one, for the simple reason that if he listened to me long enough, he might become disturbed.

    Murder.

    Anna Nicole Smith gives birth to new heir to multi million dollar fortune

    Within hours, the previous heir is found dead

    Anna Nicole Smith is heard shouting at Larry Stern "You did this. You did this".

    Larry Stern says he is father of heir to multi millions.

    Another man says he is father of heir to multi million.

    Court orders paternity test

    Anna Nicole Smiths lawyers fight paternity test for past months.

    Anna Nicole Smith dies.
    -----------

    Do you still think the paternity test will be fought? Anna Nicole Smith is dead. The court and the lawyers will want resolution of the case.

    The paternity test will take place.

    I would bet one has already been done which proves Stern is the father.

    That is why Smith is dead. Outcome of paternity test already known. No need to play lawyer games with smith any longer. Multi millions guaranteed going to Stern.

    Classic "Marry rich, poison them, get the money" scheme.

    Very similar to what happened with John Kerry's wife and her previous husband. Her husband died in a "helicopter crash", and she got 500 million.

    Or the woman who married Jerry Garcia, had him locked in a room where he was found dead, then collected his millions.

            Your facts are so messed up. Who the hell is Larry???? It's Howard K. Stern. What does your comparision of "Marry rich, poison them, get the money" scheme have to do with your two examples of Senator Henry John Heinz III and Jerry Garcia have to do with anything. Heinz died in a airplane crash, not a helicopter. And Jerry Garcia had been doing drugs for decades way before he died of a heart attack exacerbated by sleep apnea. And the wife did not collect the millions you claim, many business partners, band members, Grateful Dead Productions and other kids of Jerry are still fighting in court over the money. All your facts are crap and hearsay, get it straight before you post your junk info here. Just because you are the child of someone that is rich and dies, you are not always the heir.

              Larry Birkhead was her former boyfriend. There is a paternity issue.

              Not that I'm a ANS expert, but this shit is all over the news.

              Which, in and of itself, is sad.

                  You and three others (so far) with a faux prince now claiming paternity! Wonder if there was a Kennedy in there too. Her lifestory is worthy of a daytime soap opera.. 'desperate strippers' or something.

                    A statement from our beloved and respected friends at PETA:

                    "PETA is extremely upset by the news of Anna Nicole Smith's untimely death. She was a great friend to animals and used every opportunity to speak out against senseless cruelty. We always thought Anna Nicole was a perfect fit for PETA because, just like us, she not only hated cruelty to animals and loved her dog but also couldn't be ignored, and no matter what people thought of her, they always had an opinion, one way or another. A long-time vegetarian who had slimmed down into a stunning beauty when she stopped eating meat, Anna Nicole spoke out against Iams because of its cruel animal tests, spoke up for baby seals bludgeoned to death for their fur in Canada and posed as Marilyn Monroe in one of PETA's most striking ad campaigns, 'Gentlemen Prefer Fur-Free Blondes.' It is a tragedy when anyone passes away before their time, but with Anna Nicole, animals have lost a true hero and PETA has lost a good friend. We will miss her."
                    "Because, like us, she... loved her dog."

                    I loved her dog too.

                      NASSAU, Bahamas - A newspaper published two photographs on its front page Monday showing Anna Nicole Smith lying in bed fully clothed in a romantic embrace with the Bahamian immigration minister, who approved her application for permanent residency.Immigration Minister Shane Gibson has come under criticism from the political opposition for giving the former Playboy Playmate special treatment in granting Smith residency in the Bahamas last year. Smith died Thursday in Florida.

                        Murder schmurder. I saw her show once, she was on enough downers to tranq a water buffalo. Then she took enough speed to lose all the obesity weight. Then probably went back to downers.

                        I can tell you right now whats going to happen to the money. The baby gets it. All of it. It'll go into a trust fund and only the kid's attorney will be able to even look at the account until said kid, turns 18.

                        And its much more likely given the circumstances that drug use destroyed her internal organs than it is that someone else poisoned her.

                        Oh, and has anyone ever considered that maybe, the fortune is cursed? We'll find out when the kid turns 18.
                        Show me a man who has forgotten words, so that I can have a word with him.

                          The kid will never see the fortune.

                          There's a scumbag attorney who will take care of that, if he's given the chance.

                            The Report is IN!

                            Anna Nicole Smith was a walking zombie the months prior to her untimely death earlier this year.
                            Undoubtedly still coping with the tragic death of her son and probably being controlled by some unsavory influences in her life - HKS, cough cough - the former Playmate took enough prescription drugs to stock a small pharmacy.
                            Anna was taking meds given to her from various doctors, all of which combined led to her accidental drug overdose.

                            What was in Smith's system at the time of her death?
                            A whole lot!
                            The drugs found in Anna's body included:
                            - Trichloroethanol (a sedative and hypnotic)
                            - Trichloroacetic acid (treatment of warts, including genital warts)
                            - Diphenhydramine hydrochloride (an antihistimine and sedative)
                            - Clonazepam (aka Klonopin; used for treating anxiety)
                            - Diazepam (muscle relaxant, used for treating anxiety, insomnia)
                            - Nordiazapam (sedative)
                            - Temazepam (a sedative and hypnotic)
                            - Oxazepam (a muscle relaxant and sedative)
                            - Lorazapam (anti-nausea, sedative, muscle relaxant)
                            Anna Nicole was taking SIX different types of sedatives!!!!!
