Anna Nicole Smith Searching for New Home in Bahamas

Reality TV star Anna Nicole Smith is house-hunting in the Bahamas after a former boyfriend threatened to have her removed from his waterfront home.

Smith, who gave recently birth to a daughter in the Bahamas, used the house in Nassau as the basis for her application for permanent residency.

The home has been the subject of an ownership dispute between her and South Carolina businessman G. Ben Thompson.

The former Playboy Playmate and her companion, Howard K. Stern, are considering homes on various islands in the Bahamas, according to her attorney Wayne Munroe.

If a court rules against her in the property dispute, Munroe said Smith wants to make sure she can meet the condition of owning a home worth at least $500,000 to maintain permanent residency in the Bahamas.

He explained, "What is involved now is a leisurely look at other houses."

Thompson claims Smith has not honored an agreement to pay the mortgage on the Nassau house and recently escalated their feud by having the electricity cut off at the home. It has since been restored.

Thompson's Bahamian attorney, Emerick Knowles, said the tactic was warranted because Smith has refused multiple requests to vacate the property.

Munroe slams the measure as mean-spirited, adding, "They're trying shenanigans that are totally inappropriate with a woman at home with a newborn child.

"Nobody seems to have any regard for this child."
