Anna Nicole Smith – Prescription Drug Overdose
Becoming 1993’s Playmate of the Year catapulted model and actress Anna Nicole Smith to infamy, and helped her bag some huge modeling deals in the future. She was also in the news for her second marriage to an 89-year old billionaire, who died 13 months into their marriage and she was caught in a legal battle with his kids over the family estate.
In 2007, she was reeling from the death of her son a year ago, and the birth of her daughter just a few months apart, when she was found dead in her hotel room. The cause of death was a fatal prescription drug overdose and it was an addiction which she harbored for a long time. Anna was just 39 at the time.
