Anna Nicole Smith left everything to her dead son Daniel in her will. The legal document - which names her lover Howard K. Stern as executor of the estate - had not been updated since Anna Nicole's daughter Dannielynn was born and her son Daniel tragically passed away last September. A clause in the will - signed Vickie Lynn Marshall, the model's real name - states: "I have intentionally omitted to provide for my spouse including any future spouses or children." But this does not affect five-month-old Dannielynn as she was born after the will was written in 2001. Daniel, aged 20, was found dead at Anna Nicole's hospital bedside shortly after the birth of his sister. A medical report stated that he died of a drugs overdose.
The will was released on Friday after Florida Judge Larry Seidlin directed attorneys to file a copy of it. The will does not say where Anna Nicole wished to be buried. The blonde's estranged mother, Vergie Arthur, and Stern are locked in a battle over where she should be laid to rest. Stern claims she bought a plot in the Bahamas next to her son, Daniel. But Arthur wants her buried in the family's home state of Texas. Judge Seidlin also signed an order to have Anna Nicole's body embalmed. But the procedure was postponed after two employees at the funeral home refused to sign a document guaranteeing secrecy of the process. The court in looking for another funeral home. The model-and-actress died on February 8, after being found unconscious in Hollywood's Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.
