Zsa Zsa Gabor’s daughter seeks conservatorship
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.
