Zsa Zsa Gabor Heading to 'Financial Ruin'


Zsa Zsa Gabor


Her husband, Frederic Prinz von Anhalt, fears they will have to sell off their Hollywood home after losing millions to U.S. investment fraudster Bernie Madoff.

Zsa Zsa Gabor's husband Frederic Prinz von Anhalt fears they will have to sell off their Hollywood home as they struggle with "financial ruin" after losing millions to U.S. investment fraudster Bernie Madoff. The aging couple entrusted Madoff with a large chunk of their savings but they lost it all when the conman's Ponzi scheme was revealed in 2008, costing them an estimated $10 million.

Madoff has since been convicted and jailed for life but von Anhalt is finding it difficult to make ends meet as his ailing wife fights to recover from her recent hip replacement surgery. And von Anhalt admits they may be forced to leave their luxury Bel Air mansion and sell other assets because they are in "financial ruin".

He tells America's Globe tabloid, "I feel really bad because Zsa Zsa shouldn't have to worry about the financial mess I've gotten us into. We might be forced to sell our home, cars, artwork and jewellery because of this sick man."

Actress Gabor, 93, recently went under the knife after injuring herself in a fall at home. She has faced a number of health complications following her hip surgery and is currently recovering in hospital after receiving a blood transfusion and having a feeding tube fitted.

    I FEEL SORRY FOR ZSA ZSA. SINCE BUYING HER "PRINCE" SHE HAS HAD NOTHING BUT PROBLEMS. HIS RIDICULOUS PUBLIC POSTURING IN THE ANNA NICOLE SMITH CASE AND NOW THE FANTASY RUN FOR GOVERNOR OF CALIFORNIA ARE EVEN MORE EMBARRASSMENT FOR HER. SHE DOES NOT DESERVE THIS IN THE LAST STAGES OF HER LIFE.

    The only "sick man" in this story is the not-so-fresh Prince of Bel Air himself. Sick in the head, that is. At least he had the honesty to admit that he himself blew all his wife's money! I guess driving around L.A. in a fancy Rolls-Royce, eating at "The Ivy" every day, enjoying the services of male prostitutes and pretending to run for Governor of California don't come cheap these days. This is despite the fact that Prince Frederic recently claimed that his adopted son, Prince Markus ("Prince Germany") helped him out with a few million to overcome the losses that Madoff made off with. I guess the Prince blew those millions already - did he buy a few more Rolls-Royces or was he just playing sugar daddy to too many West Hollywood boys?
