Anna Nicole Smith's longtime companion Howard K. Stern is suing a journalist for "exploiting" the memory of the late model/actress.
Stern filed a $60 million lawsuit against Rita Cosby on Tuesday over "false allegations" in her new book "Blonde Ambition: The Untold Story Behind Anna Nicole Smith's Death."
The book claims Stern and Larry Birkhead - the father of Smith's daughter Dannielynn - were lovers who plotted to get control of the late star's estate. Cosby, a former MSNBC correspondent, claims there is a sex tape to prove the pair were lovers.
But Stern's attorney, L. Lin Wood, has furiously denied the accusations.
Wood says, "Blonde Ambition purports to be a 'tell-all' book, but it can only be accurately described as a 'tell-all-lies' book.
"And I am sure Howard and the estate and everyone else involved is going to sue her, too. This is just nonsense...None of it is true."
Birkhead has denied a sex tape exists and has also threatened to sue.
Smith passed away earlier this year.
I don’t know if anyone is still following this story, but not only does it appear that Rita may have lied, she is on tape trying to bribe the witnesses (nannies). Greta is doing the story right now and they have the audio/video tapes of Rita first offering $1k and than $15K to say that she met with the nannies—and to have them come testify in court. This is wild.
It seems that Rita is a real nutjob.
She’s still dead ping.
