Her 5-month-old daughter, Dannielynn Hope, was not with them, sources say, but is being cared for in the Bahamas by the mother of Shane Gibson, a high-ranking Bahamian official who is a close friend of Smith’s. Before learning of Smith’s death, Rale told PEOPLE, “She hasn’t been well the past few days, she’s had cold and flu symptoms.”
She was rushed to Memorial Regional Hospital shortly after 2 p.m. ET on Thursday.
According to Seminole, Florida Police Chief Charlie Tiger, Anna’s bodyguard administered CPR before paramedics arrived.
David Granoff, Anna’s former publicist, told MSNBC that he was “sad, but not shocked” by Anna’s death. He added that there was “Just no spark in her anymore.”
Tiger also said that Anna’s private nurse was with Anna at the hotel. He did not know why a nurse was with her.
