While Howard is listed as the girl’s father on the birth certificate, insiders say that, during a recent meeting with Larry, he confessed he’s not the dad. While Anna Nicole fought to keep Larry away from Dannielynn while she was alive, Howard let his former lover’s rival meet the baby recently.
In exchange for giving Dannielynn to Larry, insiders say Howard wants ongoing control of Anna Nicole’s estate. Once all the issues surrounding the estate have been settled, he also wants to become Dannielynn’s trustee.
Howard, who’s admitted he was financially dependent on Anna Nicole, is also rumoured to be claiming the Bahamas house and the boat the star bought shortly before her death.
