ANNA NICOLE SMITH REFUSES TO LEAVE HOUSE EVEN AFTER COURT ORDER
The former boyfriend of Anna Nicole Smith has obtained a court judgment ordering the reality TV star out of her oceanfront residence and he plans to seek her forcible eviction unless she leaves by Thursday, according to his lawyer. Emerick Knowles, the attorney for South Carolina businessman G. Ben Thompson, said he entered the default judgment on Tuesday after Smith missed a deadline to respond to his suit declaring his client the rightful owner of the gated mansion known as "Horizons." Howard K. Stern, an attorney who is Smith's companion, said that Knowles had "improperly obtained" the default judgment. "I can assure you that we will continue to stay in Anna Nicole's house as long as we want to," he said Thursday in an e-mail to The Associated Press.
