Zsa Zsa Gabor's ninth husband, Frederic von Anhalt, won a minor legal victory in his ongoing feud with the ailing actress's daughter, Constance Francesca Hilton, when a Los Angeles judge approved an agreement that gives the 69-year-old conservatorship over the ailing actress's non-monetary affairs for the next six months, according to various reports.
The agreement gives von Anhalt the right to make medical decisions on behalf of his wife while allowing Hilton weekly visits. The actress's financial affairs will now be handled by a group of attorneys. Superior Court Judge Reva Goetz will have the parties reconvene in January to monitor progress and decide if it is working.
Von Anhalt greeted the agreement with a declaration of Victory! outside the courthouse.
Hilton's attorney said his client agreed to the deal because it left the monetary affairs in a third-party's hands, which had been a major sticking point.
Hilton was originally named the 95-year-old Gabor's conservator in March, after claiming her mother was not being properly looked after by von Anhalt as she continued to suffer from the after-effects of declining health that began with a broken hip and leg amputation, ultimately leaving the former icon bedbound.
Hilton contended Van Anhalt kept Gabor increasingly isolated and heavily sedated, according to the LA Times. The two have battled over Gabor's affairs since the actress's health took a bad turn.
