Constance Francesca Gabor Hilton, only daughter of Zsa Zsa Gabor and Hilton Hotel founder Conrad Hilton, died Monday in Los Angeles. She was 67.
Hilton suffered an apparent stroke and heart attack on Monday evening while she was with her fiance Michael Natsis, according to a statement obtained by TheWrap. Natsis and arriving paramedics performed CPR on her, but she was pronounced dead after being rushed to Cedars-Sinai hospital.
“As Francesca’s publicist and one of her best friends I am shocked. We were on the phone minutes before she died. We were discussing her book she was writing and a possible deal. She had to go to the restroom. She never made it out. I am so sad about my friend for 35 years who procured Zsa Zsa Gabor her mother as my client during the Beverly Hills cop slapping incident that infamously jailed Zsa Zsa for three days,” said spokesperson Edward Lozzi.
Hilton is survived by her 97-year-old mother, Zsa Zsa, a Hungarian-born actress who starred on various different TV shows and in popular films including “Moulin Rouge” in 1952.
Her father died in 1979, leaving her just a small percentage of his hotel fortune.
During the 1980s, Hilton worked as both a model and an actress, and notably dated actor Peter Sellers. She had a small part in the 1971 film “A Safe Place” with Jack Nicholson, and later regularly performed at the Comedy Store on Sunset Boulevard, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Funeral arrangements are still pending.
