Anna Nicole Smith's ex-boyfriend had a spooky encounter with the late model two days after her death, when her name inexplicably popped up on his computer's 'buddy list'.
LARRY BIRKHEAD was still trying to come to terms with Smith's 8 February (07) death when he was stunned by an moment of online madness.
In a tearful interview on last night's (27FEB07) US news show ACCESS HOLLYWOOD, the photographer said, "I was online two days later and my buddy list was on one side of the computer screen and I looked over and her name flickered."
Sobbing Birkhead, whose last correspondence with his ex was via a nasty text message over his paternity battle for her baby daughter DANNIELYNN, admits he'd have loved to get any email from Smith.
He added, "I would take it if she got on there and said anything; she could have cussed me out, she could have said anything. I just wanted to hear something... but it just went off."
