Dannielynn owes $200k?!?



If you think the concept of a lawyer demanding $200,000 worth of legal fees from a 1-year-old baby sounds like the setup to a terrible joke, you obviously haven't been following the Anna Nicole Smith saga. Dannielynn_2 E! Online reports Richard Milstein, who served as guardian ad litem for Dannielynn Hope Marshall Birkhead for about three weeks early this year, has filed papers in Broward County to reclaim $198,493.98 in legal fees. "That's $900 an hour," Howard K. Stern's outraged attorney, Krista Barth, told the Palm Beach Post. "People believe the baby is rich. Couldn't be further from the truth. Mr. Milstein even charged for another lawyer at his firm to go to Anna's funeral." Barth said the bill would drain Dannielynn's trust fund. A hearing on the issue is set for Nov. 8.
