93-year-old actress Zsa Zsa Gabor had to get part of her leg amputated after doctors found a growing lesion in her leg. Her publicist John Blanchette told media that doctors examined the Moulin Rouge actress on Sunday and asked her to undergo the surgery.
Gabor’s husband, Prince Van Von Anhalt called the ambulance for the actress, reports TMZ.com. Anhalt also said that doctors had advised Gabor to get admitted for surgery before the holidays but the star was adamant on spending Christmas with her family.
Gabor has been partially paralyzed and bed-ridden for almost 8 years now, following a car accident in 2002 and a stroke five years ago.
