Distraught former Playboy Playmate ANNA NICOLE SMITH was forced to sell photos of her son DANIEL taken the night before he died in order to pay for his funeral expenses. The family portraits were taken in a hospital room in the Bahamas two days after the birth of Anna Nicole’s daughter and hours before her 20-year-old son was found dead.
Forced to sell? What this woman has no money? How much does a funeral cost these days? This actually goes beyond tasteless even for Anna Nicole Smith.
Photo agency Getty Images sold the photos to US publication In Touch for $400,000 (GBP222,000) after a fierce bidding war.
a source tells American publication Us Weekly that the devastated star sold the pictures in order to pay for her son’s funeral. The source says, “She needs the money.” (Contact Music)

What planet do these media people live on? The editor thinks that releasing the pictures will make people have sympathy for the family? WRONG. How about utter disgust and contempt?
These brand new pictures were obtained by In Touch Weekly. A senior editor at that magazine, Jarett Wieselman, is with me now.
And those pictures are so touching and now that we’re getting word there was no homicide nor suicide, maybe people will start to have sympathy for this family. Often many were coming out criticizing them.
