Zsa Zsa Gabor , one of three famous sisters who ruled Hollywood in the 1950’s with their flamboyant partying and many husbands (Twenty in all between the three of them), is now in the news again as she is very ill and being nursed by her dimestore” prince” of a husband Prince Frederic von Anhalt who has a long and unsavory past life.
It is said that The ” Prince” came into Zsa Zsa’s life twenty eight years ago when he paid a photographer to introduce them. This is how the faux “prince”scam works. Find an older women and persuade them to adopt or marry you. There are male golddiggers too in Hollywood. It is not a profession reserved only for women.
He tried this once before by worming his way into the life of an elderly woman of Austrian Royalty who unofficially adopted him after her son passed away. The ” Prince” was actually born into modest middle class German means, and legally changed his name to ” Prinz” after pulling one over on royal circles. The Prince then went around selling his cheap and dubious title and it is reported that he even had a woman pay $ 4million dollars to marry him and assume the not so royal title. At one point he was even running a gay bathhouse and there are many reports that he is in fact gay.
From there, the Prince set his sights on Hollywood, and the affable Zsa Zsa who enjoys publicity gave in to his artificial charms. They married in the late 80’s and Zsa Zsa was happy to assume the title ” princess” as well as have the man shuttle her around in her rolls royce.
He seemed like a good companion to an aging star with assets.
In the last few years the prince seems to have gone totally off his rocker as he claimed to be the father of Anna Nicole Smith’s lovechild as well as handcuffing himself nude to the car and calling the photographers first and THEN the police claiming that three hookers had robbed and abandoned him there.
But the cruelest trick in his bag was trying to keep Zsa Zsa daughter’s from her. Francesca is her only daughter, born into the Hilton family name and should have some wealth of her own. Yet a few years ago she refinanced the Bel Air mansion to try and save it as Zsa Zsa was broke. The Prince claimed that she was swindling Zsa Zsa. Well, who do you believe? The suit was thrown out of court for various reasons and now the Prince wants to sue again.
The real reason. The Prince signed a prenup and has no claim to the house. If he can sue Francesca he can try and extort some damages from her, or at least stay in the mansion , once owned by Elvis Presley, for few more years.
In the meantime, Zsa Zsa is locked in and the bell has been dismantled. The gate is locked by the prince every time he leaves, he has a male ” friend” who helps guard Zsa Zsa and Francesca is denied access. She can speak to her mother once a day.
This according to reports is Zsa Zsa’s life now.
So this is the sad tale of Zsa Zsa’s final year.
