What blonde model married an 83 year old and is now dead

This best describes Anna Nicole Smith. She was 26 when she married oil tycoon J. Howard Marshall. The businessman, however, was 89 when they tie the knot. Marshall died in 1995 after thirteen months of marriage.

The blonde was performing in a strip club when she met the elderly oil tycoon J Howard Marshall, and became an instant sensation after featuring on the cover of Playboy and replacing Claudia Schiffer as the model for Guess jeans.

When Marshall died, Smith battled Marshall's son E. Pierce (technically her stepson, who was 28 years her senior) in court for the $1.6 billion estate. She initially won close to $500 million, which a federal judge later reduced to $88 million.

Smith died of a drug overdose in 2007.
