Anna Nicole's will filed

Howard K. Stern filed the will of Anna Nicole Smith in an LA probate court earlier today. According to the papers, her total assets of $710,000 were to be left to her son Daniel, who died on September 10 in the Bahamas. Smith's estate stands to be worth substantially more if her lawyers are successful in their pursuit of the former Playmate's claim against the estate of her late husband Howard J. Marshall. In a separate petition, Larry Birkhead filed documents in LA Superior Court today formally requesting to be named as official guardian of his daughter Dannielynn's estate. "What this means - if granted - is that Stern as the executor will have to deal with Birkhead on any matters pertaining to Anna Nicole's estate," says an LA probate attorney. "Birkhead and Stern appear to be cooperating in pursuit of Smith's claim against the Marshall estate - that's where the principal money is." Hearings in both cases were set for June 19.
