Zsa Zsa Ga­bor’s daugh­ter seeks con­ser­va­tor­ship

The Washington Times Daily - - Life -

The new take on the “Ninja Tur­tles” is set for re­lease next year by Para­mount Pic­tures un­der the Nick­elodeon Movies la­bel.

Zsa Zsa Ga­bor’s only daugh­ter asked a judge on Tues­day to place her mother in a con­ser­va­tor­ship that will in­de­pen­dently con­trol the ail­ing glam­our queen’s med­i­cal care and fi­nan­cial needs.

Con­stance Francesca Hil­ton claims Miss Ga­bor’s hus­band, Fred­eric von An­halt, has been iso­lat­ing her 95-year-old mother and leav­ing her heav­ily se­dated. She also ques­tioned whether her mother’s fi­nances are be­ing prop­erly han­dled by Mr. von An­halt.

“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,” Ms. Hil­ton wrote in a dec­la­ra­tion ac­com­pa­ny­ing her pe­ti­tion.

Ms. Hil­ton is ask­ing the court to ap­point her as Ms. Ga­bor’s con­ser­va­tor, although her at­tor­ney, Ken­neth Kos­soff, said they would be will­ing to have an in­de­pen­dent third party han­dle all over­sight du­ties.

Ms. Hil­ton and Mr. von An­halt have squab­bled for years over Miss Ga­bor’s care. Mr. Von An­halt blasted Ms. Hil­ton in a phone in­ter­view, say­ing his wife is com­fort­able and that he cares for her ev­ery night.

“It’s prob­a­bly her last card she’s play­ing now,” he said of Ms. Hil­ton. “It’s all about money. She’s afraid, her mother pass­ing away even­tu­ally, and there’s noth­ing.”

Mr. Kos­soff de­nied the ac­cu­sa­tion, not­ing that the es­tab­lish­ment of a con­ser­va­tor­ship would re­quire a judge to re­view Miss Ga­bor’s fi­nances and make sure all money is “be­ing spent in her best in­ter­ests.”

“It would be a strange way to get ahold of Miss Ga­bor’s money,” Mr. Kos­soff said.

The first hear­ing on the mat­ter was sched­uled for May 2 be­fore Su­pe­rior Court Judge Reva Goetz, who also over­sees the con­ser­va­tor­ship of Brit­ney Spears.

Miss Ga­bor, a Hun­gar­ian-born sex­pot of the 1950s and 1960s, has been in de­clin­ing health and didn’t make an ap­pear­ance at a Fe­bru­ary birth­day party hosted at her man­sion.
