Zsa Zsa Gabor hospitalised again

2010-09-01 12:56

The ailing 93-year-old Hollywood legend was taken to the UCLA medical centre in California after her husband called emergency services on Tuesday.  However, her condition is not thought to be life threatening.

Prince Frederic told website TMZ: “I just called an ambulance. She has to go back to UCLA.”

Her spokesman Ed Lozzi later clarified: “She is not in a life-threatening situation.”

Zsa Zsa has suffered ill health all year and spent most of August, including her ninth wedding anniversary, in hospital after undergoing hip replacement surgery.

The veteran actress suffered further complications after the operation including a blood clot, for which she had to have more surgery, and at a stage her condition worsened to the point where she was read the last rites by a priest.

However, the Hungarian-born actress left hospital the very next day on her own insistence, with her husband saying she wanted to live out her final days at home.

Her spokesperson said at the time: “Her health has been up and down ever since her hip replacement. She wanted to spend her final days at home. It is a very difficult time for her family.”

Zsa Zsa’s career spans five decades and includes cinema classics A Touch Of Evil and For The First Time.

She has also famously been married nine times, and has one daughter, Francesca Hilton, by her second husband, hotel magnate Conrad Hilton.

Zsa Zsa Garbor has been taken back to hospital after her husband Prince Frederic von Anhalt made a call to emergency services.
