Howard K. Stern, will he crash and burn?
Things aren't looking to good for Howard K. Stern in the battle for custody of Dannielynn. After much controversy over a video surfaced with Stern behind the camera taping an obviously drugged up Anna Nicole Smith with her face painted like a clown. Oh yeh, and she was 8 months pregnant.
Now, Stern's own "team" is starting to crumble. His sister says that Smith told her she didn't know who the baby's father was.
"When I spoke to (Smith) in March, when she found out she was pregnant, I took her shopping, and she told me the baby was due in mid-October, and that one other person could have been the father and that was Larry Birkhead, but nobody else," Bonnie Stern said.
In addition, Stern can't remove Dannielynn from the country due to an injunction at the hands of Anna Nicole's estranged mother, Virgie Arthur. Arthur has been vocal against Stern claiming her killed her daughter and grandson by leading them to drugs.
Larry Birkhead has also filed a lawsuit in the Bahamas saying that Dannielynn's birth certificate that lists Howard K. Stern as her father is a fraud.
Even worse for Stern, Arthur and Birkhead have practically teamed up together. Birkhead served as her witness in the custody battle over Smith's remains, and Arthur has thrown her support behind Birkhead for custody of Dannielynn saying she wants "...Larry to have custody of the child."
It looks like Howard's fun days of mushroom trips and methadone popping have ended. Now what will happen with Dannielynn? Can Stern possibly retain custody?
Only time will tell.
Can't get enough of the Anna Nicole Smith saga? Take a look at the rest of coverage while you're here!
I think all the negative coverage about Howard K. Stern is very unfair. He has been with Anna all these years. He has been the only constant in her life. Anna Nicole chose to be with him. Blaming Howard K. for Anna's drug addiction is absurd. Opri publicly claiming that Daniel and Anna "died under his (Howard's) watch" is unprofessional and inflammatory. Anna and her son were adults and under no one's "watch."
Let the poor man grieve in peace. I hope he retains custody of Dannielynn. He was the closest person to Anna and Daniel.

I also think Howard is being treated unfairly. We need to remember he was Anna Nicoles best friend.Have any of you ever dealt with an addict? It is not easy.She wore the pants in that family anyone who ever saw them together saw the love they shared as friends and maybe even romatically.If anyone wants to call anyone names what about FORD SHELLEY. HE A THEIF A LIAR AND A COWARD WHO STOLE ALL OF DANNIELYNNS PERSONAL BELONGINGS OF HER MOTHERS.MAY HIS SOLE ROT IN HELL FOR WHAT HE HAS DONE TO THAT POOR CHILD. HE SHOULD BE PUNISHED,AND ARRESTED.ANY DONT EVEN GET ME STARTED ON THATMONEY GRUBBING SO CALLED FAMILY FROM TEXAS. WE ALL HEARD DANIELS FATHER SAY BURY THEM SIDE BY SIDE BECAUSE I CANT AFFORD TO DO SO.LOOK DEEP SPLASH MEDIA IS PAYING FOR EVERYTHING THING FOR VERGIE ARTHUR YOU CAN BET ON THAT!! WHAT APOOR EXCUSE OF A HUMAN BEING. PUT ANNA IN THE BAHAMAS NEXT TO HER SON WHERE SHE WANTED TO BE AND AWARD HOWARD THE BABY BECAUSE THATS WHAT ANNA WOULD HAVE WANTED!!!

I too,believe Howard K.Stern had Anna,Daniels and Danielynn's best interest at heart.He has been by her side for more than 10yrs.Taking care of everything for them.
And it is very true that you can't make an addict DO anything,they have to want to do it for themselves.I also hope he is the baby's father,he will do the best for her and be a good daddy too.
Please cut him a break with all the rumors.The man hasn't even been able to grieve yet.God Bless Anna and Howard.

Are you kidding? He only wants money. Trump was right to say he is a loser. This is not going by rumors. He said he hasnt had a job in the last 6 or 7 years. He has lived off her and now he wants to cash in on the child. What a loser.
