LOS ANGELES: Anna Nicole Smith’s death has had a massive impact on those whom she has left behind, especially those with whom she may or may not have sired illegitimate children. This afternoon, the first “class action paternity lawsuit” was filed against Anna Nicole Smith for custody of her daughter, Danielynn. By Friday, three men had stepped forward, each claiming exclusive rights to the $475 million that Danielynn represented: her former boyfriend, Larry Birkhead, her attorney-lover Howard K. Stern, and Prince Frederick Van Anhalt (the current husband of Zsa-Zsa Gabor).

But by this morning, over 15,000 more men emerged at the municipal county courthouse in downtown Los Angeles to file a class action lawsuit for paternity rights. Chanting a bizarre medley that included “Who’s Your Daddy?” and “We Shall Overcome,” the disgruntled crowd suddenly began to consider the responsibilities of fatherhood…started to drink heavily, curse, fight, destroy public property, and finally abandon the site at a dead-beat pace.
