Marriage to J. Howard Marshall II

In 1991, Smith met Texas oil tycoon J. Howard Marshall II while working at a strip club in Houston. In 1994, Smith, then 26, married Marshall, then 89. Marshall died at age 90 in 1995. Smith was not named in his will, but she claimed he had promised her a share of his estate. She fought Marshall's son, E. Pierce Marshall, in court for more than a decade. The case went to the U.S. Supreme Court but was never resolved, as E. Pierce died in 2006 and Smith died a year later.
