Howard K. Stern has filed court papers seeking to make Anna Nicole Smith's daughter the sole heir of the late model's estate.
Smith's will was drafted long before the birth of her daughter, Dannielynn, last year. She died before updating the will to include her daughter.
In court papers filed Thursday in Los Angeles Superior Court, Stern tries to clarify Smith's intentions.
He claims Dannielynn should be the sole beneficiary under the correct reading of Smith's will even though the child's name is not mentioned. And he asks a judge to establish a trust for Dannielynn.
Dannielynn lives with her father, Larry Birkhead, who was established as her parent through DNA testing that settled a legal dispute with Stern.
