Anna Nicole Smith, Larry Birkhead, Howard K. Stern
Anna Nicole Smith and Larry Birkhead were involved in a custody dispute over Dannielynn in February of 2001 when Smith suddenly died of a drug overdose. Both Birkhead and Howard K. Stern, Smith’s lawyer, claimed he was Dannielynn’s biological father. After a long, drawn out and public trial, a paternity test proved that Birkhead is the father of Dannielynn. He was awarded full custody by the court.
