July 31, 2019

Zsa Zsa Gabor was one woman who commanded Hollywood, and this she did with her bubbly, flirtatious personality. Zsa was born as Sari Gabor on February 6, 1917, in Budapest, Hungary.

She became famous for her role in 'Moulin Rouge,' and 'Gilligan's Island.' However, it was her extravagant personality and rollercoaster love life that endeared her to the hearts of many.

Zsa Zsa's tumultuous love life

According to the book 'Finding Zsa Zsa: The Gabors Behind the Legend' by Sam Staggs, Zsa love life was more troubled than was projected by the media, especially her marriage to Conrad Hilton.

The actress's first marriage to Burhan Asaf Belge lasted for six years before they divorced. However, the crux of all her marriages was the second, which was to hotel magnate, Conrad Hilton. Zsa Zsa and Conrad married in 1942, and she was 30 years his junior.

According to Staggs, Conrad didn't think it was right to marry the Hungarian actress, but he went against his better judgment nevertheless.

Even though they were married, the duo never shared a bedroom. He always kept her on a budget to satisfy her spending sprees.

Although most people believed she loved Conrad for his money, the book explains that Zsa Zsa took solace in the hotel magnate because he loved nothing else apart from his religion and hotels.

Unfortunately, they divorced after five years together. It was after their split that she gave birth to their daughter, Francesca, and things got worse. Zsa Zsa claimed that she was raped, but Conrad denied all allegations.

He even had doubts that Francesca was his biological daughter. As a result, he stayed away from her until his death and only gave her $100,000 out of his $200 million net worth.

After Conrad, Zsa Zsa found love in the arms of actor George Saunders. But they were only together for just five years.

But what shocked many about their relationship is that the actress advised her ex-husband to marry her sister because she wanted to keep him in the family.

After George, she was with Herbert Hutner who she described as kind and generous. In her memoir, she explained that his good attributes almost annihilated her drive to work. She married four more men before getting to her final husband.

The former Miss Hungary dated a list of men which included the President of Turkey. Her final straw when it came to marriage was with Frédéric Prinz von Anhalt who was with her until her demise.

According to the biography, Frédéric alienated the star from her loved ones and took over her estate when she fell sick.

Goodbye at 99

Zsa Zsa lived a life full of glamour and love from different men and passed away at the ripe age of 99. The last five years before her demise, she was on life support.

On December 18, 2016, she had a cardiac arrest while in a coma and died. She was fifty days away from turning a hundred.
