Hellish Custody Case

I realize that most people have probably heard that a href=”http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/17050167/?GT1=9033″Anna Nicole Smith just died/a, but I have to wonder what is to become of her five-month-old daughter who has nowa href=”http://www.people.com/people/article/0,26334,1540184,00.html” lost a brother /aand a mother. Ia href=”http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,236146,00.html” can only imagine /athe child custody battle that is about to begin over this poor child. Who is the real father and will he get custody?br /br /Update: What is amazing is how cruel some of the commenters were on the MSNBC.com site (the comments seem to be down or gone?) in response to the sad news that Anna Nicole had passed away. Did anyone see the live video at MSNBC.com where the sound technicians were joking and saying,”Anna Nicole, making our living from Anna Nicole” or some such nonsense. Good grief, doesn’t anyone tell these guys that they are on live video?br /br /Update II: It is amazing that even duped dads are held responsible for child support for children who are not even their own. Yet, Larry Birkheard, the man who is fighting for his right to a paternity test for Dannielynn cannot even get an expedited DNA test and Anna Nicole’s lawyer has the audacity to be a href=”http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/17063569/”outraged by the request/a:br /br /blockquote”I think it is despicable,” Rale said of the new motion for Smith’s DNA. “We don’t think it is necessary. You don’t need Anna’s DNA to find out if Mr. Birkheard is the father or not … Howard [K.] Stern is the presumed father.”/blockquotebr /br /The only thing here that is despicable is that Larry Birkheard is being denied his request to determine if he is this child’s father or not. If he is not, what does the opposition have to lose?
