Disturbing video footage of Anna Nicole Smith wearing clown makeup during her pregnancy was presented as evidence that Howard K. Stern and two doctors conspired to keep her in a drug stupor in the years preceding her death.
Prosecutors introduced the 45-minute video in a preliminary hearing last week intended to determine what role Stern, Dr. Sandeep Kapoor, and Dr. Khristine Eroshevich played in Smith’s death.
The video was shot during a birthday party for 9-year-old Riley Shelley, the daughter of Gina Shelley, who’s father owned the Bahama’s home Smith lived in.
Riley’s father, Ford Shelley, took the tape from the home the day after Smith’s death, and released segments to the media.
In the video, Smith appears confused, mistaking a baby doll for her unborn child.
Stern claims Smith was acting for the camera.
It seems Stern had a penchant for photographing and filming Smith in drugged states. Alarming pictures of a previous drug overdose, taken from Stern’s camera, showed her naked and covered with vomit.
