Former Playboy Playmate and billionaire's widow Anna Nicole Smith collapsed in a hotel room and died on Thursday in Florida, her lawyer said.
"I can confirm that she is deceased. It's as shocking to me as to you guys," Smith's attorney, Ronald Rale, said.
Local police were reportedly forced to shut down streets in the Florida town of Hollywood to help rush Smith, 39, to hospital.
The sudden death of Smith came just five months after Smith's 20-year-old son, Daniel Smith, died in the Bahamas three days after the birth of her daughter.
I can't wait to see the conspiracy theory that is going to develop from this.
