Judge Grants Zsa Zsa Gabor’s Husband Extension on Escrow

A judge granted the husband of Zsa Zsa Gabor an extension through September 2017 of the $19,000 a month he receives from an escrow account associated with the couple’s Bel Air home so he can continue paying conservatorship expenses regarding the former actress.

On Monday, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mary Thornton House ruled in favor of behalf of Frederic Prinz von Anhalt, whose lawyer Matthew Kanin, stated in his court papers that the ailing Gabor “has outlived expectations.” The Hungarian-born Gabor will turn 100 years old on Feb. 6.

Kanin and von Anhalt, who attended the hearing with his lawyer, declined to comment afterward.

In May 2013, Judge Reva Goetz, who is now retired, approved the sale of the couple’s home for $11 million in an agreement that allowed  Gabor to remain there for the time being. The sale will close either 120 days after Gabor dies or in September 2017, whichever comes first.

Last November, Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner Brenda Penny authorized monthly payments of $19,000 from the home’s escrow account to von Anhalt, who has served as conservator of Gabor’s estate since July 2015. The judge’s order was scheduled to expire Nov. 16.

“That funding needs to continue to flow to (von Anhalt) … through September 2017 … because it is just enough to cover the normal monthly expenses of (Gabor),” Kanin stated in his court papers.

The extension is needed to “avoid a budget crisis” for Gabor, according to Kanin’s court papers.

Von Anhalt believes his wife is comfortable in her home and would not want to move because it is familiar to her, according to Kanin’s court papers.

In order to avoid having to move his wife to another location, von Anhalt “is currently in talks with the buyer to extend the agreement for one more year,” Kanin stated in his court papers.

The escrow account has a balance of more than $315,000, according to Kanin’s court papers.

Von Anhalt has about $62,000 in cash on hand and by the end of next year will have to spend more than $50,000 on homeowner’s insurance, property taxes and employment taxes, according to Kanin’s court papers.

In November 2002, Gabor was involved in a car crash that left her partially paralyzed. She suffered strokes in 2005 and 2007, and in 2010 fractured her hip and had a hip replacement.

In 2011, Gabor’s  right leg was amputated above the knee to save her life from an infection. In February, she was hospitalized after suffering from breathing difficulties.
