Anna Nicole Smith's body is in the Bahamas, funeral underway
After three weeks of sitting in a Broward County coroner's office, the body of former Playboy playmate, Anna Nicole Smith, was escorted by police to the Miami International Airport and flown by private plane to the Bahamas.
Friends and family have gathered to lay the buxom blonde to rest next to her son, Daniel, who died last year.
The ceremony is said to have a guestlist of about 300 people, and country music star Joe Nichols will perform at the funeral and at graveside. Smith and Nichols were friends before she died on Feburary 8.
Now that Smith will be laid to rest, it will be up to a judge to decide who will get permanent custody of her 5-month-old heiress, Dannielynn.
Smith's companion Howard K. Stern, estranged mother Virgie Arthur and ex-boyfriend Larry Birkhead all want custody of Dannielynn, who could inherit millions of dollars.
