Zsa Zsa Gabor: Actress’s husband to continue as conservator
Question of the Day
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Zsa Zsa Gabor's husband will remain the ailing actress's conservator until at least August and will have to account for her assets, a judge ruled Wednesday.
Fredric von Anhalt has served as his wife's conservator since July after the actress' daughter questioned whether he was providing proper medical care and appropriately managing her finances.
An attorney appointed to represent Miss Gabor's interests wrote in a report that Mr. von Anhalt generally has been a good steward of his wife and has complied with terms of a settlement that required strict financial oversight. The report by attorney LeAnne Maillian states it appears that Mr. von Anhalt had used some of his wife's money to pay his own expenses but that he has already repaid it.
Mr. von Anhalt's attorney, William Remery, declined to state how much was repaid.
Miss Gabor, a Hungarian-born sexpot of the 1950s and 1960s, has been in declining health in recent years. She has contended with a broken hip, a leg amputated because of gangrene, blood clots, infections, pneumonia and other ailments and requires around-the-clock care.
Superior Court Judge Reva Goetz said Mr. von Anhalt should provide details about his wife's finances by July so that she can review details before she reviews the case again on Aug. 21.
Ms. Maillian said she is receiving monthly financial reports about Miss Gabor's estate.
Miss Gabor's daughter, Francesca Hilton, has questioned whether Mr. von Anhalt was properly caring for her 95-year-old mother and her finances. Ms. Hilton's attorney, Kenneth Kossoff, said Wednesday he still is seeking more details about Miss Gabor's medical care but that he didn't want to publicly discuss them.
