The Phoenix New Times has another chapter in the Anna Nicole Smith saga: her Native American son, Marshall Soto. Charles Tatum reports on Johnny Soto, a member of the Tohono O’odham Nation, who claims he had a passionate affair with Smith in 2001 and she bore a son (after hiding the pregnancy). Soto has the birth certificate and other documents to prove it. But the romance had a sordid side:

“Sometimes I felt like I was being used, and it left a bad taste in my mouth,” says Soto. “But I was just as guilty as she was. The only whites I’d ever had sex with were prostitutes, and I couldn’t get enough of Anna Nicole. I fell under her spell. I did whatever she asked.”

But later, Smith’s use of drugs and careless disrespect cooled Soto’s ardor:

She kept saying she wanted me to use my ‘bow and arrow’ on her ‘ax wound.’ I told her that was no ax wound, it was the Grand Canyon!

If Soto prevails in court, he’s promised half to the Tohono O’odham Nation which would become the richest Indian nation in the southwestern United States.
