The heiress and Hungarian model and actress, Zsa Zsa Gabor passes away just shy of a century of life.
The Hungarian beauty that lasted across a century, Zsa Zsa Gabor passed away at the age of 99. Her long-time publicist Edward Lozzi confirmed that Zsa Zsa died of a heart attack in Los Angeles on Sunday, according to NYTimes.
With a modestly successful career in radio, movies and television, Zsa Zsa was more appropriately known for her mink coats, diamonds and luxurious lifestyle that always amazed the public eye and her series of marriages to wealthy and famous men over the course of her life.
Zsa Zsa reportedly married about nine times in her lifetime including, a Turkish diplomat, the hotel heir Conrad Hilton, the actor George Sanders, an industrialist, an oil magnate, a toy designer, a divorce lawyer and a man often referred to in the news media as the Duke of Saxony.
Born in 1917 in Hungary to Vilmos Gabor and JanciTilleman Gabor. She was the second of three daughters born. Magda was three years older, Eva two years younger.
Both of her sisters were also celebrities of their own right. Zsa Zsa was crowned Miss Hungary in 1936 before she had to migrate to the U.S. to seek refuge from the German forces as World War II started.
Her only child is Francesca whom she conceived with Conrad Hilton. Hilton is Paris Hilton’s grandfather. Zsa Zsa faced a rough time after her daughter’s birth which may be attributed to her not having another child.
She reportedly called Oscar winning actor, George Sanders the love of her life while she was reportedly the love of Porfirio Rubirosa life whom she had a very public affair with.
They never married but commenting once on her slew of marriages, she said that it was her goal in life to find love and she would keep marrying until she found it.
Famous for calling everyone “Dahlink,” flaunting a diamonds-and-furs lifestyle and abetted by gossip columnists and tabloid headline writers, Ms. Gabor is survived by her husband, Mr. Prinz von Anhalt.
