Late husband of Anna Nicole Smith. Marshall made a fortune in the oil bidness, and used that money to shower his trophy wife with gifts.

His will did not mention her. Although she filed a lawsuit, the probate court said that she was not in the will and therefore did not get his estate. Fortunately for her, a Texan bankruptcy court had already awarded her about half a billion.
