LOS ANGELES (AP) – Zsa Zsa Gabor, the jet-setting Hungarian actress who made a career out of multiple marriages, conspicuous wealth and jaded wisdom about the glamorous life, has died. She was 99.

Her husband, Prince Frederic von Anhalt, says Gabor, who suffered numerous medical issues after breaking her right hip in July 2010, died Sunday of a heart attack at her home.

Gabor appeared in films ranging from “Moulin Rouge” in 1952 to “Queen of Outer Space” in 1958, but she was best known for her many love affairs and tabloid scandals.

The great aunt of Paris Hilton and a spiritual matriarch to the Kardashians, Simpsons and other tabloid favorites, she was the original hall-of-mirrors celebrity, famous for being famous for being famous.
