London, Feb 17 (IANS) Veteran actress Zsa Zsa Gabor’s husband Prince Frederic von Anhalt is reportedly planning to sell the 94-year-old’s $600,000 collection of fur coats to pay for her ever-increasing medical bills.
“Why should I pay $1,200 a year? The furs don’t get better with age and I need lots of money to pay bills so I’m going to sell them. I’m sure the animal lovers will be upset by this sale but what am I going to do with them,” contactmusic.com reports Anhalt as saying.
“Zsa Zsa is an animal lover too so I was surprised she even bought the coats. She will never wear them again. The doctor says she will never get out of bed so I want the coats out of our life,” said Anhalt, the actress’ ninth spouse.
Gabor has been in and out of hospital since suffering from two blood clots following a hip surgery last year.
Then she was admitted to the UCLA Medical Centre after doctors became concerned she may lose her life if her leg wasn’t amputated and while the procedure was largely considered to be a success, she has been receiving round-the-clock care ever since being allowed to return to her Los Angeles estate Jan 22.
