A legend lost. Celebrities took to social media to pay tribute to Zsa Zsa Gabor after the Hungarian actress and socialite died of heart failure at age 99 on Sunday, December 18.
As previously reported, Gabor’s longtime publicist Ed Lozzi confirmed to Variety on Sunday that she passed away in her Bel Air mansion after being on life support for five years.
The former beauty queen — who was previously married to hotel magnate Conrad Hilton, Paris Hilton’s great-grandfather, from 1942 to 1947 — was often referred to as the original Kim Kardashian for her glamorous persona and headline-making antics. She was beloved among the Hollywood community for her beauty and talent.
From Paris to Miley Cyrus, take a look at stars’ touching reactions to Gabor’s death.

Gabor — who emigrated from Hungary to the United States in the early 1940s — was known for her roles in films such as Lovely to Look At (1952), Moulin Rouge (1952), The Story of Three Loves (1953), The Girl in the Kremlin (1957) and Orson Welles’ classic Touch of Evil (1958). Aside from her memorable acting roles, she was famous for her flirtatious personality and her nine marriages. Her last marriage was to Frédéric Prinz von Anhalt, who she wed in 1986 and remained with until her death.
In 1989, the tabloid fixture infamously slapped a Beverly Hills cop and was arrested for assault and sentenced to jail for three days. She poked fun at herself in several spoofs years after the incident took place.
In the years leading up to her death, Gabor dealt with a multitude of health issues. In 2002, she got into a car accident in Los Angeles in 2002 that left her in a coma for days. She survived several strokes between 2005 and 2007 and had multiple surgeries in recent years — including a leg amputation in 2011. Her right leg was amputated above the knee because of a gangrene infection stemming from an untreated blood clot. Most recently, in February 2016, she was hospitalized for a lung infection.
