Anna Nicole Smith and James Brown - The Price Of Being Famous

Anna Nicole's Will Leaves More Questions

The 19-page will did not say how much Smith was worth, so it is still a mystery how much money those battling over her remains and her baby daughter could get. And while her body underwent embalming Saturday, the will also didn't mention where Smith wanted to be buried.

It named Smith's lawyer and boyfriend, Howard K. Stern, as her executor, stipulating that he hold her estate in trust for son Daniel Smith. But her son died last September at age 20 of apparently drug-related causes, days after the birth of the Smith's daughter, Dannielynn.

Embalming of Anna Nicole Smith's body begins

FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida (CNN) -- The body of Anna Nicole Smith was being embalmed Saturday at the Broward County Medical Examiner's office, officials said.

Circuit Judge Larry Seidlin ruled on Friday the embalming could proceed, and although the move takes the former Playboy Playmate's body one step closer to burial, the fight over where she will be buried has only begun.

Smith's attorney and longtime partner, Howard K. Stern, says Smith wanted to be buried next to her son Daniel, who died in the Bahamas last year. But the reality TV star's estranged mother, Vergie Arthur, wants her buried in her native Texas. (Watch how the will gives Howard Stern legal clout )

James Brown

James Brown has yet to be buried. Over a month after his death, legal wrangling over Brown’s estate has prevented the signing icon from receiving a proper burial. And despite considerable precedence in cases like this, (Elvis Presley wasn’t buried for 90 days because of legal issues. Ted Williams’ family feuded for months over whether to freeze or cremate Williams’ body.) The man deserves to be buried immediately.

James Brown Rape Case Back On The Docket As Victim Wins Appeal

James Brown's former assistant has won the opportunity to sue for a slice of the late soul star's fortune after claiming he raped her at gunpoint in 1988. Jacque Hollander's shocking claims were thrown out of court in Chicago, Illinois, last year after a judge ruled she had waited too long to make the charges, but now the US Supreme Court will hear the case after her lawyers appealed the decision.

How to avoid an estate nightmare

"The whole point of having a good estate plan is that you don't have to go through what her family is going to go through now," explains Daniel Krug, a certified senior adviser who runs an estate-planning firm in Clarkston.
