LOS ANGELES— A judge has extended the temporary conservatorship of Zsa Zsa Gabor’s husband over the ailing actress and her estate, court papers obtained Friday show.

The one-page order issued Tuesday by Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Reva Goetz means Frederic von Anhalt will remain as his 96-year-old wife’s interim caretaker at least until Aug. 21. The judge originally appointed him to the position last July.

Gabor’s daughter, Constance Francesca Gabor Hilton, filed her own conservatorship petition last March after learning her mother’s home was in default over missed mortgage payments and that von Anhalt had obtained a six-figure loan against his wife’s equity in the property, according to a statement issued on behalf of Hilton’s attorney.

But both sides last summer reached an interim solution in favor of appointing von Anhalt as Gabor’s temporary conservator.

Gabor’s real estate holdings are worth more than $10.6 million, according to her 65-year-old only child, who was fathered by hotelier Conrad Hilton.

In previously submitted court papers, attorney William Remery, on behalf of von Anhalt, said his client has “managed (Gabor’s) finances prudently while under significant financial straits created in large part by (Hilton’s) own abuse of power of attorney given to her by (her mother).”

Remery argued that von Anhalt was “entitled to priority for consideration” regarding any appointment of a conservator for Gabor.

Gabor’s right leg was amputated in January 2011 because of gangrene.
