Anna Nicole Smith dies in Florida hospital

Former model found unresponsive in Florida hotel room


MSNBC staff and news service reports

Updated: 4:02 p.m. ET Feb 8, 2007

Anna Nicole Smith died Thursday after collapsing at a hotel and being being rushed to the hospital, one of her lawyers said.

Smith collapsed in her room at the Hard Rock Cafe and Casino in Hollywood, Fla., and was rushed to a hospital on Thursday. A Hollywood, Fla., fire department spokesman told MSNBC TV that the actress was unresponsive when the rescue unit arrived on the scene and had been intubated. Smith was transported to Memorial Regional Hospital shortly after 2 p.m. EST and attorney Ron Rail confirmed that she had died nearly an hour later.

On Tuesday, Smith and the diet products company TrimSpa Inc., for which she is a spokeswoman, were sued in a class-action lawsuit alleging their marketing of a weight loss pill is false or misleading.

Smith also was order by a judge to have baby daughter undergo paternity testing. The test is being sought by Smith's former boyfriend Larry Birkhead, who claims he is the father of Dannielynn Hope Marshall Stern. She was born Sept. 7 in the Bahamas.

Less than a week after the birth of her daughter, Smith's 20-year-old son Daniel died in her hospital room while visiting Smith after the birth. An coroner's report ruled the death was caused by an overdose of anti-depressants and methadone.

Smith married Texas oil tycoon J. Howard Marshall II in 1994, when she was 26 and he was 89. He died the following year.

She then feuded with Marshall’s son, Pierce Marshall, over her entitlement to the tycoon’s estate before he died in June at the age of 67.

In the long-running dispute, Smith had won a $474 million judgment, which was later cut to about $89 million and eventually reduced to zero. In May, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Smith could continue to pursue the fortune in federal courts in California despite a Texas state court ruling that Marshall’s youngest son was the sole heir.

Thought this was the best forum, she has been in TV and films.

HOLLYWOOD, Fla. - Anna Nicole Smith died Thursday after collapsing at a hotel and being being rushed to the hospital, one of her lawyers said.

She had been unresponsive and was rushed to the hospital Thursday while staying at the Seminole Hard Rock Cafe Hotel and Casino, hotel officials said.

"She checked in Monday at 8 p.m. as a guest. She was due to check out tomorrow," said Danielle Giordaano, a spokeswoman for Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.

If it was suicide, I'll bet she had a really bad case of postpartum depression...PPD would understandable under normal circumstances after giving birth, but especially after what happened to her son and all the legal problems she's having...

Very sad, regardless :(

... also in the news today ( 3 minute blurb ) , Hamas and Fatah factions stopped their feuding and reached an agreement to share power in the government of Palestine . They can now begin talks in a united front with Isreal about a peace settlement ( a pre-condition of Isreal's ) , yadda-yadda-yadda - but no , the last 8 hours of CNN coverage are on this hugely important story ! :P A 'Celebrity obsessed culture' the media likes to call us - perhaps , but look who's feeding us ! ;) }:(

I think she had a hand in her son dying, shes gonna get sued, and its a whole conspiracy theory.

Maybe one too many martinis and xanax, with a side of lortab.

I feel bad for her baby, i really do. I know shes a celebrity and all that, but im sorry, i know a guy that just passed away and had a much better life minus the money, he was one of the best people i knew.

Yet...he didnt get all this news coverage.

But, im not gonna get into that.

I hope Anna Nicole Smith, Elvis, Tupac and Andy Kaufman have fun hanging out.

Do you really think she is dead?

No. I think she's on that island where all the celebreties go to hide after faking their own deaths. I bet she's pushing JFK around in his wheel chair and chatting with Jim Morrison while having a good laugh at how fat Elvis has gotten.

What i would give to find THAT island!!!

Okay, if i were a songwriter, id write a parody about that...all the so called "dead" celebs.

To the tune of Gilligans Island.
