The actress' publicist, John Blanchette, said Monday that Zsa Zsa Gabor has developed an infection that will keep the 93-year-old hospitalized indefinitely as she recovers from a broken hip.
Gabor has been hospitalized at the UCLA Ronald Reagan Medical Center since she broke her hip July 17 while trying to get into her wheelchair. The Hungarian-born actress' condition began to deteriorate after hip-replacement surgery days later.
Meanwhile, it has been claimed that Gabor and her husband Prince Frederic von Anhalt are in financial dire straits after losing $10m to Bernie Madoff in his billion dollar ponzie scheme.
"It's terribly sad," a source said. "To have such a fabulous life come down to possibly being booted into the street just brings you to tears.
"If she hadn't gotten caught up in Madoff's scheme, Zsa Zsa could go out in the style to which she has been accustomed."
"Now, she's in the same boat as others who bet their life-savings on the silver-tongued sales pitches of con men."
"The thought of Zsa Zsa going out penniless is tragic. It's a sad final act in a life that she lived to the fullest."
