Did Anna Nicole Smith Get Along With Her Father, Donald Hogan?
The new Netflix documentary “Anna Nicole Smith: You Don’t Know Me” reveals some alarming details about the late model’s life, including an alleged assault involving Anna Nicole Smith’s father, Donald Hogan. According to the New York Post, Hogan tried to rape her when she was 24. The purported incident, which took place in 1993, occurred after Smith received the title of Playboy’s Playmate of the Year. In the documentary, her secret girlfriend Melissa “Missy” Byrum shared, “She told me that her father had tried to have sex with her. I was really sad to see that. She was so so disappointed.” In addition, her brother Donnie said, “I wouldn’t put it past [our dad].”
Sadly, Smith’s tragic story wasn’t an isolated incident. According to The Guardian, Hogan had a history of sexual assault charges. He served a six-month jail sentence for the rape of Smith’s Aunt Kay and an underage female. Donnie said, “He told me a story about how he raped his wife’s sister. He chased her down by a tree when his wife wasn’t around. She was a child. He’s very scary. I was always afraid of him.” Later on, he allegedly sexually abused his other daughters.
