Anna Nicole's Funeral Goes Ahead, Despite Last Ditch Court Battle
ANNA NICOLE SMITH's funeral in the Bahamas has taken place, despite last minute attempts by her mother to stop the service.
VIRGIE ARTHUR filed a petition in an attempt to stall the funeral, but it was rejected this morning (2MAR07) by a Bahamian court. Smith's ex-husband BILLY SMITH yesterday (1MAR07) applied to exhume the remains of their son DANIEL - and move them from the Bahamas to his native Texas.
Despite the court furore, hundreds of Bahamians turned out to watch Anna Nicole Smith's coffin arrive on a private jet and make its way to the Mount Horeb Baptist Church in Nassau where it was carried along a red carpet.
Around 300 guests attended a private service at the church.
Later today, Smith will be taken to Lakeview Memorial Park cemetery where she will be buried next to her son Daniel, in a ceremony watched by around 30 close friends and family members.
