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.
