Zsa Zsa Gabor and Steven Spielberg - Saturday 24th January 2009

* GABOR LOSES MILLIONS IN MADOFF SCAM Legendary actress Zsa Zsa Gabor is facing ruin after falling victim to U.S. fraudster BERNARD MADOFF. Financier Madoff was arrested last month (Dec08) accused of siphoning billions of dollars from his wealthy clients. A number of stars have been affected by the scandal, including Kevin Bacon and Steven Spielberg. And now Gabor, 91, and her ninth husband, Frederic Prinz Von Anhalt, have revealed Madoff's scam has also cost them millions. Von Anhalt tells the National Enquirer, We're mad as hell. We want our money back. We might be forced to sell our Bel Air home, cars, artwork and even our jewellery because of this sick man. This scam artist should be dragged through the streets and flogged. Anhalt is accepting the blame - because he convinced his wife of 23 years to pump her fortunes into Madoff's funds. He adds, I feel really bad, because Zsa Zsa shouldn't have to worry about the financial mess I've gotten us into. We are taking legal action to recoup some of the money. I'm going to have to make back that money somehow, or we're going to face financial ruin.
