Ailing actress Zsa Zsa Gabor, who is bed-ridden and unable to care for herself, is the subject of much debate these days between her daughter, Francesca Hilton, and husband Prince Frederic Von Anhalt.
Hilton–whose father is hotel mogul Conrad Hilton–filed for conservatorship of her mother’s estate back in March under the claim that Gabor’s money was being mishandled by Von Anhalt and that he was isolating the 95-year old from her daughter.
“By isolating me from my mother, not only does her current husband deprive her of my love and companionship, but he goes against estate planning documents that appear to reflect her wishes that he not be in sole control of her affairs,” Hilton claimed in her petition.
Gabor was in a car accident in 2002 and later suffered two strokes, which necessitated a partial amputation of her leg; since then she has been confined to a bed and unable to look after her own financial affairs.
“We are just seeking to bring her finances and healthcare out in the open, so to speak, within the confines of a conservatorship proceeding, so that independent third parties will determine that she is getting the best care she can,” Hilton’s lawyer said.
Von Anhalt has now filed a formal objection to the plea for conservatorship, saying Hilton is the last person he would want to take care of Gabor. He also blames her for the estate’s financial issues.
A hearing is set for May 2nd.
