The notion that she married billionaire J. Howard Marshall for his money arose following her highly publicized second marriage in 1994 to the 89-year-old tycoon, which she categorically refuted.

David Birkhead’s daughter Dannielynn Birkhead was born to the late American Playboy model Anna Nicole Smith and the late freelance celebrity photographer Larry Birkhead. Dannielynn has a net worth of $3 million, according to Forbes. That sum represents her joint net worth with her father, Larry.
According to a ruling issued yesterday by the United States Supreme Court, the bankruptcy court that granted Anna Nicole $474 million (which was later reduced to $89 million) lacked the right to do so, and as a result, Anna Nicole’s estate would get absolutely no money.
Anna Nicole Smith tied the knot with millionaire oil mogul J. Howard Marshall in 1994, despite the fact that they were 63 years apart in age.
It appears that a California court will determine if Birkhead is the father, but it is more probable that a Bahamian court would determine the question of custody. If Birkhead is not the father, the problems of paternity and custody will remain unresolved, as will the question of which court has jurisdiction over the situation. The money will almost certainly be given to Dannielynn.
Birkhead and Smith’s baby, Dannielynn, was only 5 months old when her mother died after unintentionally overdosing on prescription pills in their home. (Smith and her ex-husband were also the parents of a boy, Daniel Wayne Smith.) Daniel died of an accidental drug overdose in 2006, at age 20.)
Smith and Marshall were married in 1994. She was 26 years old at the time, and he was 89. Many people were taken aback by the enormous age gap between the couple, and Smith was accused of simply being interested in Marshall’s substantial wealth. According to People magazine, immediately after the wedding, the bride and her mother left for Greece without their husband.
Anna had her son, Daniel, when she was just 17 years old, however Daniel died as a result of an overdose a few years later. Also for Dannielynn, Larry does his best to keep Anna’s memory alive via his efforts.
The Billionaire and Anna Nicole Smith When she married oil millionaire J. Howard Marshall, Anna Nicole Smith did not sign a prenuptial agreement. He didn’t leave anything to her when he died. In the end, a stunning $474 million was granted to the Texas beauty, but the verdict was later overturned.
