In separate petitions filed on Monday, Howard K. Stern is asking the court to recognize Anna Nicole Smith's 6-year-old will as a binding document, while Larry Birkhead has asked to be appointed the guardian of his and Smith's daughter Dannielynn's estate.If Smith's will is declared legal, the document tendered by Stern left an estimated $710,000 to Smith's (now-deceased) son, Daniel, and gave Stern custody of the then-minor. A probate proceeding will sort through Smith's assets and debts and establish a trust for Dannielynn, who could possibly inherit the $500 million estate of Smith's late husband, J. Howard Marshall III. A hearing slated for June 19 will consider the will as well as Birkhead's petition, which claims that Dannielynn's dad "is in the best position to protect and safeguard the interests of the child... including her interests in the estate of her deceased mother."
Although the late Playboy pinup's non-babydaddy Howard K. Stern is claming that two diaries being sold to the highest bidder(s) this Saturday are stolen property and as such should be returned to him (though he, um, didn't write them), Dallas' Heritage Auction Galleries says, "In the absence of a judge stopping this auction, this auction will go forward." Also on the block: a $16,954.66 receipt from a shopping spree Smith went on in 1992, a signed bank check (probably no longer any good, just a hunch), and the dimbulb bombshell's 1994 Texas driver's ID (the first of its kind to denote bust size as opposed to eye color).
