Anna Nicole's assets
16:30 01 March 2006
Anna Nicole Smith has appeared before the US Supreme Court in her bid to inherit her late husband's fortune.
The former stripper - who wed oil tycoon J Howard Marshall II in 1994 when she was 26 and he was 89 - has been fighting her ex's son for a share of his £900m estate since he died in 1995.
The former Playboy model - who insists her spouse told her she would inherit half of everything he had - looked demure as she arrived at the courthouse dressed in black on Tuesday (28.02.06).
During the hearing, Smith - who was originally given half of Marshall's fortune until the decision was overturned four years ago - sat quietly, occasionally leaning forward to talk to her lawyers.
After the legal wrangling, she hurried from the court to a waiting SUV, mouthing "I'm sorry" to the horde of paparazzi waiting outside.
Justice's will now decide if the blonde star can make another claim on Marshall's estate.
