Anna Nicole Smith - Nicole Smith Daughter Dannielynn Receives Multi-million Dollar Payout

Anna Nicole (nee) Smith died tragically, while fighting a legal battle for her late husband’s millions, but Nicole Smith’s daughter from another relationship, Dannielynn Birkhead, has seen the case resolved and in her favor. Anna Nicole famously married millionaire J. Howard Marshall, who was 62 years her senior, in 1994. He died one year later, kicking off a chain of tragic events, which included the death by drug overdose of Smith’s son Daniel in 2006 and her own overdose on prescription drugs just five months later.

When Anna Nicole died, she was still engaged in the battle with Marshall’s family over his estate, estimated to be somewhere between $500 million and $1 billion. Anna Nicole never saw the payout, but now, thanks to the ruling of a California judge, her 6-year-old daughter will, according to TMZ’s report on the case. The website states that the payout will be for the grand total of $49 million, despite despite a 2011 Supreme Court ruling against Smith's estate that overturned a previous $475 million.

Hopefully now the whole thing can be left behind in the past, so that Dannielynn might have a chance at a normal childhood – or as normal as possible, under the circumstances. Dannielynn currently lives with her father, Larry Birkhead and does modelling work for Guess Jeans’ children’s division.
