The actress had been in failing health for several years and has stayed out of the public eye for nearly a decade.

She was a true fighter to the end.

In 2011, Zsa Zsa's health declined after her right leg was partially amputated due to a severe infection. Gabor last made headline news in November after it was revealed that her current (and ninth) husband Prince Fredric von Anhalt was once again accused of exploiting the bedridden socialite by making a lucrative deal with Europe's O.K.

The deal allowed a professional stylist to enter Gabor's home and go through her wardrobe, picking out many priceless gowns for models to wear while photographed throughout Gabor's Bel Air mansion. Something that many believed would not have been permitted by Gabor herself, so the deal was made without her consent, or knowledge.

Gabor is best remembered for her long acting career, but also for her famous love life. Zsa Zsa was well known for always stating in her interviews just how much she loved men.
