LOS ANGELES (AP) - Zsa Zsa Gabor’s publicist says the shock of Elizabeth Taylor’s death made Gabor fear she was next and sent her to a Los Angeles hospital with high blood pressure.

John Blanchette says the 94-year-old celebrity learned from television news Wednesday morning that her friend and one-time neighbor had died.

Blanchette says Gabor’s blood pressure soared and she commented that after the recent deaths of Jane Russell and Liz Taylor she believed she would be next.

Blanchette says Gabor was hospitalized and released Wednesday evening.

However, the account was challenged by Ed Lozzi, publicist for Gabor’s daughter, Francesca Hilton. He says Hilton called the hospital and was told her mother had not been there.

A Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center spokeswoman declined to comment, citing privacy laws.
