Anna Nicole Smith can’t deny that she loves attention. But is she denying a rumor that she’s pregnant? Or is she confirming it?

“If Anna Nicole is pregnant she obviously doesn’t want anybody to know yet. If she is not pregnant she’s not denying the rumor because she thinks it’s funny how much of a stir it’s causing,” her attorney, Howard K. Stern, said in a written statement, adding: “She’ll leave it up to you to guess which one it is.”

Published reports surfaced this week that the 38-year-old former reality TV star, pinup and weight-loss pitchwoman was pregnant by an unidentified man.

Stern declined to elaborate beyond his cryptic statement, reports Reuters.

On Monday, Smith won a U.S. Supreme Court ruling that gives her another chance to collect millions of dollars from the embattled estate of her late Texas oil tycoon husband J. Howard Marshall.

Smith, who met Marshall in 1991 when she was a 26-year-old topless dancer, wed the 89-year-old Texas oil tycoon in 1994. Marshall died the following year.

His son, Pierce Marshall, claims his father’s various wills and trusts make him the sole heir of a fortune estimated to be as high as $1.6 billion – which triggered the family feud that has been played out in courtrooms in both California and Texas and then, finally, in the Supreme Court.
