As I have previously discussed, it appeared that a probate court was about to terminate the power of attorney that Zsa Zsa Gabor's husband, Prince Fredric von Anhalt, had over her health care and finances. This challenge came from Gabor's daughter, Francesca Hilton, who questioned whether von Anhalt was properly caring for her mother and managing her finances. A court decided that von Anhalt shall remain as Gabor's conservator but only until August of this year. In addition, he must account for all of her assets. He has served as his wife's conservator since July of 2012. After care examination of his actions, "it appears von Anhalt had used some of his wife’s money to pay his own expenses, but that he has already repaid it." Other than that, von Anhalt has done an excellent job managing his wife's finances, and has complied with all the terms of the settlement that require financial oversight.
