LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - The husband of
ailing movie actress Zsa Zsa Gabor reached a
deal on Friday that will allow the
cash-strapped couple to stay in their Bel
Air mansion for the remainder of her life.
A Los Angeles judge ruled that Gabor's ninth
husband, Frederic Prinz von Anhalt, could
sell the four-bedroom, five bathroom mansion
in a deferred transaction.
Under the deal, the buyer will allow Gabor,
96, and von Anhalt to remain in the home for
at least three years, or until the actress
dies, and pay them $325,000 (211,864.41
pounds) a year, Gabor's publicist John
Blanchette told Reuters.
Gabor, the Hungarian-born star of 1950s
films "Moulin Rouge" and "Lili", has been in
and out of hospital since breaking her hip
in 2010 and having her leg amputated in
Von Anhalt put the house up for sale at an
asking price of $15 million (9 million
pounds) two years ago, citing financial
difficulties and the costs of medical bills
"This decision is going to make her very
happy," von Anhalt told reporters after
Friday's court hearing. "Hopefully she will
be with us for more than three years. Her
mother lived to be 102."
Gabor's hillside home is in one of the most
exclusive areas of Los Angeles. The grounds
were used to film scenes for Ben Affleck's
Oscar-winning movie "Argo" as well as an
upcoming HBO film about the life of late
Blanchette said Gabor remained bedridden but
was in better health recently than previous
years and had enjoyed a 96th birthday party
at the house in February attended by more
than 100 friends.
