It’s not easy being a former Playboy Bunny who married an old man for money and then gave birth to a controversial daughter years later.
Just ask Anna Nicole Smith.
The busty blonde was recently sued by Larry Birkhead, who claims to be the father of her newborn baby. The suit is requesting a judge to order Anna Nicole return her daughter, Dannie Lynn, to California, submit to a paternity test and have mother and child tested for drugs.
We’re guessing this isn’t the way Smith had planned on taking her honeymoon.
In a statement released by Birkhead’s attorney, Debra Opri, Birkhead is asking for legal and physical custody of the little girl, born September 7th.
It reads he is “a first time father and he is responding to allegations made by attorney Howard K. Stern on behalf of Anna Nicole Smith” and “believes beyond any doubt that he is the father.”
This goes to show that you’ve gotta keep detailed track of who you sleep with. At least Nick Carter appears to be heeding that advice these days.
Last week, Smith’s lawyer, Howard K. Stern, announced on CNN’s Larry King Live that he was the father of the child and that he and Anna Nicole had been in a relationship for some time.
But Birkhead appeared live on with Rita Cosby on MSNBC last night and declared, once again, that he is the father of the little girl. He told Cosby that he is “outraged and angry” and claims that Anna Nicole deliberately fled to the Bahamas to avoid custody and visitation discussions.
This sounds sketchier than a Bobby Brown child support payment. Maybe.
Cosby also asked Birkhead about unsubstantiated claims that Anna Nicole was pregnant once before with a child of Birkhead’s but then miscarried, but Birkhead refused to comment.
