In some sad news for fans of actress Zsa Zsa Gabor, her daughter Francesca Hilton is dead at 67, which was confirmed by her publicist, Edward Lozzi. Like Hilton's mother, her father Conrad Hilton was also well known. He was a wealthy businessman and hotel magnate, hence "Hilton". On Monday, Hilton died of an "apparent stroke/heart attack" at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, according to her publicist who spoke with her moments before she passed. Lozzi said in a statement,
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.
Hilton was born Constance Francesca Gabor Hilton. In addition to having well-known parents, she was known for dating actor Peter Sellers (The Pink Panther), and being a photographer and actress. She also had a small role in the 1971 film A Safe Place, starring Jack Nicholson. Starting in 2008, Hilton embraced her comedic side by regularly performing at the Comedy Store on Sunset Boulevard.
Hilton is survived by her fiancé, Michael Natis and her 97-year-old mother. Her father died in 1979.
