Veteran actress Zsa Zsa Gabor is preparing to undergo surgery to replace a broken hip after suffering a bone-crushing bed fall on Saturday night, her agent has confirmed.

The Hungarian-born movie veteran fell out of bed at her Bel Air, Los Angeles home and was taken to nearby UCLA hospital after her concerned husband, Prince Frederic von Anhalt, called an ambulance.

Her publicist, John Blanchette, confirmed the star “had broken several bones” in the accident.

Blanchette tells Reuters Gabor is now scheduled to undergo hip surgery on Monday.

The 93-year-old star has been confined to her bed since a 2002 car accident left her partially paralysed. She sparked fears for her ailing health in January, when she was photographed in a wheelchair looking shockingly frail and weak.
