Autopsy Scheduled For Anna Nicole Smith

 An autopsy will be performed today to determine why the former Playboy model and reality T-V star collapsed in a Florida hotel room and died at age 39.

Smith's attorney says she had flu-like symptoms and a fever this week. Ron Rale says claims that her death was drug-related are "nonsense." But a former attorney for Smith in the Bahamas thinksit'll turn out that drugs did kill Smith, as they apparently killed her 20-year-old son last September.

Just days before her son died, Smith gave birth to a daughter in the Bahamas. Two men claim to be the girl's father, and an emergency hearing on the paternity is scheduled today in Los Angeles.

At the time of her death, Smith was still entangled in a dispute with the family of her late husband, oil tycoon J. Howard Marshall. He was 89 when the two married in 1994. A federal court has awarded Smith $474 million from Marshall's estate but his family is fighting it.
