Does she or doesn’t she? An attorney thinks TV reality star Anna Nicole Smith, who usually sports platinum blonde hair, may have dyed her infant daughter’s locks to make it appear the father is Smith’s companion, Howard K. Stern. Smith’s ex-boyfriend Larry Birkhead, who claims he is the father, saw the child with dark hair in leaked snippets of an Entertainment Tonight interview of Smith, his attorney Debra Opri said Monday. "It’s horrendous," Opri said. "We are calling our experts right now to see if dyeing an infant’s hair is any way toxic or harmful to a child." Birkhead frosts the tips of his sandy blonde hair. Stern appears to have naturally black hair. Smith’s attorney Ron Rule said the allegations of hair-dyeing were ridiculous. Dannielynn Hope Marshall Stern, almost 2 months old, is the subject of two paternity lawsuits — one filed in California and the other in the Bahamas, where Smith and Stern currently live. Birkhead initially filed a lawsuit demanding Smith and the child come to California to establish paternity through DNA tests. A hearing is set for Nov. 8. A second lawsuit was filed by Birkhead last week in the Bahamas alleging Smith and Stern committed fraud and conspiracy. Smith’s daughter was born Sept. 7. Three days later, Smith’s 20-year-old son, Daniel, died while visiting her in a Nassau hospital. The results of official toxicology tests and a police investigation into his death have not been released. In Nassau, Smith was hospitalized with pneumonia at the same medical center where her son died under mysterious circumstances in September, a lawyer for Smith said Tuesday. Smith was being treated at Doctors Hospital in Nassau, attorney Wayne Munroe said. "She has a slight case of pneumonia," Munroe told The Associated Press. "We’ve had a sudden change of weather here due to a cold snap."

I wouldn’t put it past her, after all she did move to another country to avoid him.
