Zsa Zsa Gabor to sue hairdresser over crash
Zsa Zsa Gabor is filing a £65 million lawsuit against her hairdresser, who was driving her in Hollywood last week when he lost control and crashed the car into a lamppost.
The 85-year-old actress, who was not wearing a seat belt, broke her arm and needed stitches in her head, hands arms and legs, Frederic von Anhalt - Gabor's eighth husband - told The New York Post.
Initial reports said the former Miss Hungary was taken to hospital in a coma, but von Anhalt denied her condition had been that serious.
He said Gabor would stay in hospital this week and would undergo surgery for her broken arm.
The hairdresser, whose name has not been released, was not admitted to hospital. He had been wearing a seat belt.
