Chron.com Texas oilman E. Pierce Marshall, 67, dies
"Smith married Texas oil tycoon J. Howard Marshall II in 1994, when she was 26 and he was 89. He died the following year. Since then, E. Pierce Marshall has been locked in a legal battle over her entitlement to the estate."
This is an unfair statement. They had been going together a long time before this, when he rescued her from the strip club. Texas has Common Law Marriage; in my book they had been legally married several years before she officially walked the isle.

Was I prophetic? In a comment, I had just mentioned this to Useless Man (blog) this afternoon, warning a young thing harboring romatic thoughts towards an older man of plights similar to poor Anne Nicole.
The picture of her on the June, 1993, cover of Playmate displayed here was in preparation of a blog I was working on, about Anne Nicole Smith and her situation. It was to include this greedy step-son.
My hopes are that the family will let this matter rest in peace--who knows about the wicked stepson--and let Nicole have her due that her beloved husband had provided her [with].Anne Smith Nicole Marshall Playboy Playmate
I do believe the family, although not happy, should have settled and bowed out of this a long time ago.
The legal experts are saying the estate can, and probably will, drag things on and on.
Like in Charles Dickens' book, Bleak House, I personally hope lawyer fees eat the whole estate up if they won't settle, then nobody will get anything.
God's way of making sure she stopped trying to steal what was not hers. Now nobody will have to endure her cruel and wreckless ways, especially her young daughter. It was unfortunately too late for poor Daniel.
