Zsa Zsa Gabor death, lavish lifestyle and nine marriages flooded the internet for the past 48 hours. There is, however, one important part of her life that is often overlooked and rarely talked about: Zsa Zsa Gabor daughter Francesca Hilton.
Who is Francesca Hilton?
Francesca Hilton was born in 1947 with the name Constance Francesca Gabor Hilton. Her father was the heir to the famous and luxurious Hilton hotels. The year Francesca was born was the year her parents divorced.
Francesca never had a close relationship with her father Conrad Hilton. According to a report by The Telegraph, Francesca said that her father was married to his business. They would spend Christmas together and occasionally have lunch at L’Escoffier with Zsa Zsa. In general, it was respectful but not at all warm and affectionate.
Zsa Zsa Gabor daughter is great grand aunt to Paris Hilton whom she never grew close to despite both being in the entertainment industry.
Born to privilege but died homeless
Francesca Hilton was born to extreme luxury. Her mother, Zsa Zsa Gabor, was a Hungarian-born socialite who, up to her death, was worth millions of dollars. Her father, on the other hand, was heir to the Hilton fortune.
Unfortunately when Conrad Hilton died in 1979, Francesca only received $100,000 of his $200 million estate. It was far less that what his other children from other relationships received. However, the bulk of left fortune went to the Hilton Foundation.
The amount Francesca received from her inheritance did not sit well with her. She decided to fight the will which ultimately caused her to forfeit the original $100,000 inheritance. It was not the only legal case she and a parent were involved with.
According to Heavy, Zsa Zsa Gabor daughter and her latest husband went to court over the Hungarian-born socialite’s money and care. At one point, Frederic von Anhalt accused Francesca of forging her mother’s signature for a $2 million loan.
She was broke and often living in her car for the most part of her adulthood. She eventually became a stand-up comedian in the 2000s where she often cracked a joke about Paris Hilton and her mother Zsa Zsa Gabor.
Where is she now?
Zsa Zsa Gabor daughter Francesca Hilton died on January 6, 2015 at age 67 due to heart attack. She was dining at a restaurant with her fiance when it happened. Her body stayed unclaimed in the morgue for days as family members deliberated on who should claim it. On the other hand, Zsa Zsa Gabor died on December 18, 2016 without the knowledge of her daughter’s death.
