Judge's ruling means Smith to be buried in Bahamas

Fort Lauderdale, Fla. - Anna Nicole Smith will be buried in the Bahamas, alongside her son, it was announced Thursday after a tearful judge left the decision up to the attorney for the model's baby daughter.

Richard Milstein, the court-appointed attorney for 5-month-old Dannielynn, announced the plans not long after a judge gave him control of Smith's final resting place. He gave no timeframe for the burial.

Circuit Judge Larry Seidlin steered a surprise middle course in a dispute that became more urgent by the day when the medical examiner warned that Smith's body was rapidly decomposing.

The ruling came a full two weeks after Smith died at a Florida hotel at age 39 of still-undetermined causes.

K-Fed cancels court date as Britney enters rehab

Los Angeles - An appearance in family court sought by Kevin Federline amid a child custody dispute with Britney Spears was canceled Thursday after the pop star entered a rehabilitation program.

Spears has gone into the Promises Malibu drug and alcohol rehabilitation center, her manager, Larry Rudolph, confirmed in an e-mail to The Associated Press. He gave no details.

The TV entertainment magazines "Extra" and "The Insider" and the Web site TMZ said Spears' mother, Lynne Spears, drove her daughter to the center, which she had reportedly been in and out of earlier in the week.

Last week, Spears sought treatment at a center in the Caribbean but also checked out after a day.

Spears and Federline reportedly agreed Wednesday night that he would keep their two young sons while Spears was in rehabilitation, a program that takes between 30 and 45 days.

N.J. golf course may be Trump's final resting place

Bedminster, N.J. - He may be a New York native. But it's the Garden State that may own "The Donald" for eternity.

Real estate mogul Donald Trump has filed paperwork to build a wedding chapel on his golf course in Bedminster. He told The Star-Ledger of Newark that he wants to later convert the building into a mausoleum for himself and his family.

Trump called the 525-acre Trump National Golf Club property in picturesque Somerset County hill country, about 50 miles west of Manhattan, a "beautiful place." Trump built the course, which opened in 2004, on the former estate of the late automaker John DeLorean.

Plans are contingent on approval from the Bedminster Planning Board.
