The iconic Hollywood star Zsa Zsa Gabor dead at the age of 99. The shocking incident sends family and fans of the Beverly Hills socialite in grief.
On Saturday, Dec. 18, Zsa Zsa was pronounced dead of heart attack. The actress’ publicist Ed Lozzi confirmed to Variety that she died in her Bel-Air mansion. Zsa Zsa had been on life support for the past five years with the actress’ deteriorating health constantly makes it into headlines.
However, the Moulin Rouge actress unyieldingly clung onto dear life. In 2002, she was left wheelchair-bound after a car accident. Then she had a hipbone surgery in 2010 because of a fall. The actress also suffered a previous heart attack and got her leg amputated in order to survive.
Zsa Zsa Gabor Dead from Heart Attack
Before the media was dominated by Kim Kardashian and the rest of the clan, there was Zsa Zsa Gabor and her sisters Eva and Magda. Rumored by many as famous for nothing except their love lives, which definitely sounds familiar with the current Hollywood rumor mill, Zsa Zsa starred for over 60 years in various movies and TV shows. She also played as herself in the majority of her projects.
The star, debatably, was the one who kickstarted today’s celebrity-obsessed culture. Known with a bubbly and flirtatious air, the Hungarian actress is most famously known in her movies Moulin Rouge (1952), Lili (1953), Touch of Evil (1958), and Queen of Outer Space (1958).
The actress also led a colorful life with nine marriages. Her roster of husbands includes Turkish diplomat Burhan Belge, hotel heir Conrad Hilton, actor George Sanders, industrialist Herbert L. Hunter, oil magnate Joshua S. Coden Jr., toy inventor Jack Ryan, divorce lawyer Michael O’Hara, and man famously referred to as the Duke of Saxony, Frédéric Prinz von Anhalt.
There was also one marriage that is not that much counted since it only lasted for a day.
Zsa Zsa just proves what she said that a “girl must marry for love.” If she does not find it, then she just has to “keep on marrying.” The optimist and believer of marriage also said that diamonds are not a girl’s best friend. Instead, it is “divorce lawyers.”
The devastating news of actress Zsa Zsa Gabor dead brings sadness to the whole industry. The late actress would have turned a century old in February.
