Anna Nicole Smith feared her lawyer and lover Howard K. Stern caused her son 's death, a new book has claimed.
In her most desperate moments after son Daniel was found dead last September, Anna Nicole blamed Stern for the tragedy, according to allegations made by former MSNBC journalist Rita Cosby in her upcoming book Blonde Ambition: The Untold Story Behind Anna Nicole Smith's Death.
Ex-employees of the late Playboy model claim they heard her scream at Stern: "You did this! You killed him! You caused this!"
Anna Nicole allegedly told one employee: "Someone poisoned him or gave him drugs or something. He didn't do drugs!"
Daniel was found dead beside his mother's hospital bed shortly after the birth of her daughter Dannielynn in the Bahamas.
The coroner's report found a cocktail of drugs in his system. This is the latest revelation from the tell-all book, which also claims Dannielynn's father, Larry Birkhead, and Stern were gay lovers.
Cosby accuses Birkhead and Stern of cutting a secret deal after Anna Nicole's funeral in March, with Birkhead getting custody of Dannielynn in return for Stern being named executor of the star's estate.
Dannielynn - who turns one on Friday, September 7, 2007 - stands to inherit billions of dollars pending a court case regarding the estate of Anna Nicole's late husband, oil tycoon J. Howard Marshall.
The book claims Anna Nicole knew Birkhead and Stern were gay but her obsession with late Hollywood icon Marilyn Monroe made her choose Birkhead as her lover because she wanted a blonde, blue-eyed baby. Both men vehemently deny the allegations.
