Anna Nicole Smith checked into Bahamas hospital with pain in her side

Anna Nicole Smith was suffering from pain in her side when she checked into the hospital where doctors diagnosed a case of pneumonia, her attorney said Wednesday.

The 38-year-old former Playboy playmate arrived Monday at Doctors Hospital, the same medical center where she gave birth to a daughter in September and her 20-year-old son died while visiting her three days later.

"The impression I got is they took her in because her ribs were hurting, and then they discovered she had pneumonia," attorney Wayne Munroe told The Associated Press.

Smith's companion, Howard K. Stern, said in a statement to the TV show "Entertainment Tonight" that Smith underwent a procedure Tuesday to drain fluid from a lung that had partially collapsed.

"A CT scan at the hospital revealed that she has pneumonia, with a significant amount of fluid in the lower lobe of her right lung," Stern said. "We are hoping for a quick recovery, but as of now Anna Nicole is still experiencing a significant amount of discomfort."

Smith's son, Daniel, died Sept. 10 in her room at Doctors Hospital, the only private medical center in Nassau, the capital of the island chain three days. A private medical examiner has said the cause was a lethal combination of methadone and antidepressants, reports AP.

The results of official toxicology tests and a police investigation have not been released.

Stern said Smith has no plans to leave the Bahamas and is not concerned about a dispute over the ownership of her waterfront residence, which was the basis of her application for permanent residency. Local immigration authorities opened an inquiry following a claim by a South Carolina developer, G. Ben Thompson, that he owns the house.

"Anna Nicole is not concerned at all about her permanent residency status being revoked," he told "Entertainment Tonight."
