What Happened To Howard K. Stern After Being Accused of Partners Death; Got Married With Anyone Lately?
Howard Kevin Stern (who is often confused with Radio host Howard Stern) is an American attorney based in California. He also was the domestic partner, the attorney, and agent of the late model Anna Nicole Smith. Now that we know that Howard and Anna were linked, today let us talk about all the accusations that surrounded Howard of being the reason for Anna's demise.
Anna's Death And The Accusations Revolving Around Her Partner Howard:
Anna had the entire globe buzzing about her, and she also was infatuated by many during the 90's when she was all over the fashion world. People often link Anna and Howard as the two were more than friends. The two first met in 2001 when the then billionaire husband of Anna passed away without Anna getting any benefit in his will.
Anna always was adamant on being a gold digger and loved her husband truly, but when the will read that Anna did not have any beneficial from her husband's end, she decided to take matters to the court, and that is when Anna and Howard crossed paths.
Moreover, during 2006, Smith donned a wedding gown for she and Howard had a commitment ceremony in the Bahamas. They also exchanged rings and vows but were never got legally married and shared a husband-wife relationship.
But there was also a major dispute between Anna's partner at the time, Howard, and photographer Larry Birkhead, over who fathered Dannielynn. It later turned out Birkhead was the biological father although Stern’s name was on the birth certificate.
Howard is still said to be in touch with Dannielynn even though he is not the biological father and this shows an amicable relationship between them.

But the connection between Anna and Howard is not the main thing people remember them about. It was the death of Anna in 2007, and the accusations of her death which fell upon Howard that the public remember.
Anna died aged 39 due to prescription drug overdose, and Howard was convicted on two felony charges back in 2010 for plotting and conspiring to use fake names and also for using false pretenses to score prescriptions.
Not only Howard but Smith's friend and personal Psychiatrist Khristine Eroshevich also became convicted of four criminal counts which included two conspiracy charges.
The conspiracy charges took place because Eroshevich allegedly brought the bottles of pills for Anna in which the two of them compiled a shocking total of 44 various medicines including the dangerous chloral hydrate, Klonopin, Topomax, Valium, Soma. What was shocking is that the medicines were prescribed in the name of various other patients.
Another doctor, Dr. Sandeep Kapoor, who was claimed to be an openly gay man was said to be in a romantic connection with Anna as the two were reportedly seen kissing each at a night club.
Later Kapoor's attorney poured light upon Kapoor's sexuality and that he was a gay man and never had any romantic link with the deceased and later he was acquitted of the charges.
Howard reacted to this by saying,
'Everything related to the appropriateness of the medication, I was acquitted of.'
However, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Robert J. Perry told the media that charges fell upon Howard because he is a public figure. He also told,
"Howard Stern simply has been through enough ... I find there is no reason to permit this case to go forward,"
Also, the lack of evidence led to Howard vacated of the felony charges in February 2011. Furthermore, when a three-judge panel wanted this decision of Perry to overturn, a representative of Howard said,
"I sincerely hope that the D.A. heeds the strong, forceful and true words of Judge Perry and allows this case to end. Only then would Howard be able to move on."
Regardless, the death of Anna was sad, and the world lost a very skilled and top class model.
Furthermore, there are also reports that Howard still looks after Anna's estate and inheritance. Following Anna's sad demise, Stern was in control of her estate worth nearly $2 million which included her California home. Howard also is battling for the inheritance of Anna after her ex-husband Marshall died which he promised to Anna. The case has gone on for more than two decades now.
Is Howard Married Now?
A lot went wrong in Howard's life with the demise of Anna and all the court cases. But what is Howard up to now? Is he married with some new flame in his life?
Well, Howard has not been vocal about his love life, and thus, he has kept this matter to himself and thus, the answer to that might as well be a "NO, sort of " or he might not want to be public about his personal matters. So, we might need to wait for him to give a clue in this regard.
