Known For Being Married Nine Times Zsa Zsa Gabor Passes Away

Zsa Zsa Gabor

She was the Kim Kardashian of the time, now Hungarian-born actress and socialite Sari Gabor, (Zsa Zsa is a nickname) has died at age 99 from a heart attack. Her ninth husband, Prince Frederic von Anhalt, was by her side. Ms. Gabor had been ill for awhile after having broken her hip last month and needing feeding tubes to stay alive. Rarely seen in public since a 2002 car accident left her partially paralyzed. She also suffered a stroke in 2005. Gabor was the only survivor of the trio of acting Gabor sisters. Her sister Eva died in 1995 and Magda in 1997.

Gabor took her first husband Turkish diplomat, Turhan Belge, when she was 20 in 1937 and ended in divorce. She went on to hotel magnate Conrad Hilton in 1942, Oscar winning actor George Sanders and marriage number eighth to Mexican attorney Felipe de Alba, was annulled. She had forgotten to divorce husband number 7.

Francesca Hilton

Gabor had one child, Francesca Hilton, from her marriage to Hilton. Years later she would allege that Francesca was conceived after Hilton raped her. Years later years, Gabor, von Anhalt and Francesca battled in court over family finances. Needless to say Zsa Zsa was not mother of the year. Francesca Hilton died of an apparent stroke in 2015.

Zsa Zsa was fodder for the headlines. In 1954, she was seen with Dominican Republic playboy-diplomat Porfirio Rubirosa weeks before his marriage to heiress Barbara Hutton. In 1958 her romance with Rafael Trujillo Jr., son of the Dominican dictator, became a scandal in Congress. In 1989 she spent three days in the El Segundo jail after she was found guilty in a well-publicized trial over slapping the face of a Beverly Hills police officer who stopped her for a traffic violation.

 Moulin Rouge,  Zsa Zsa Gabor

Zsa Zsa wasn’t an actress or a singer or a dancer or an entertainer of any sort, she was the beautiful. Gabor was famous for being famous. Her film career contained dancer Jane Avril in John Huston’s Toulouse-Lautrec biopic, “Moulin Rouge,” Orson Welles’ classic “Touch of Evil,” and “Nightmare on Elm Street” to name a few.
