Smith says family ostracized her
HOUSTON Former stripper and Playboy Playmate Anna Nicole Smith wept on the witness stand yesterday as she told of being so ostracized by the family of her multimillionaire husband that she wasn’t even told when the elderly ill man was dying.
“Everyone hated me and no one gave me a chance,” she said during a fifth day of testimony in the trial over the estate of her late husband, Howard Marshall II.
She married Mr. Marshall in 1994, when she was 26 and he was 89. He died the next year.
Miss Smith, 33, along with disinherited stepson J. Howard Marshall III, sued designated heir E. Pierce Marshall over the Marshall estate.
She dropped her Texas claim after a California bankruptcy judge awarded her $475 million in a separate case, but Pierce Marshall, 61, is appealing that decision.
