And while he provided no details to back up his claim, he also said he intends to sue Anthony for the death of the little girl.

The identity of Caylee's father remained a mystery throughout the explosive case.

Anthony also said that Caylee’s father had died in a car crash around the girl’s second birthday.

Anthony is due to be released from the Orlando, Florida jail on Sunday, however her legal woes are far from over.

A woman called Zenaida Fernandez Gonzalez is suing her for defamation after Anthony told investigators she was Caylee's nanny and she had taken her daughter.

Gonzalez denies ever even knowing Anthony or her child.

However, Judge Jose Rodriguez, quit the case without explanation on Friday forcing another judge to be assigned.

Anthony may now have to submit to a formal interview by her accuser's lawyers just days after leaving jail.
