Zsa Zsa Gabor’s death certificate revealed that the star died from a heart attack, TMZ reported Tuesday.

According to the document, the socialite suffered from a cardiopulmonary arrest with two contributing factors: coronary artery disease and cerebral vascular disease.

Other significant conditions that contributed to her death were a cerebrovascular accident and a coma.

On December 18, the Hungarian-born actress and longtime Hollywood socialite died at the age of 99. A publicist for Gabor, Ed Lozzi, told CBSLA that she passed away at her home.

Gabor had been ailing and was reported to be bedridden for more than five years. Gabor suffered from a series of medical problems in recent years, including a broken hip and an infected lesion that resulted in the amputation of the actress’ right leg. Her prolonged hospitalizations had left her confined to bed.

She and her late sister Eva were actresses and also famous Hollywood scenesters for decaes, often garnering public commentary not unlike what greets Kim Kardashian and her clan in the modern era.

In 1952, she starred opposite Jose Ferrer in “Moulin Rouge,” directed by John Huston.

She played herself on TV shows ranging from variety programs such as “The Joey Bishop Show” and “Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In” to comedies like “My Three Sons,” “The Beverly Hillbillies” and “It’s Garry Shandling’s Show.”

Gabor also was famous for her nine marriages, surpassing even the much-married Elizabeth Taylor.
