LOS ANGELES (AP) — Francesca Hilton, the daughter of actress Zsa Zsa Gabor and Hilton Hotel founder Conrad Hilton, has died in Los Angeles at age 67.
Publicist Edward Lozzi says Francesca Hilton was pronounced dead Monday night at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center after an apparent heart attack and stroke.
Hilton in recent years battled stepfather Frederik von Anhalt over control of her mother's finances, with a judge at one point ordering von Anhalt to allow Hilton to visit Gabor.
Gabor is now 97 and requires around-the-clock care after health crises including a broken hip, a leg amputated because of gangrene, blood clots and other ailments.
Lozzi says Hilton worked as a professional photographer, actress and as a publicist in the 1980s.
