Zsa Zsa Gabor was rushed to the hospital Wednesday morning to seek treatment for a severe infection.
The legendary 95-year-old actress sought treatment at the UCLA Medical Centre in Los Angeles after her feeding tube spawned a nasty illness.
TMZ reports that Zsa Zsa underwent surgery and is now being closely monitored by doctors as she recovers from the procedure.
Zsa Zsa's husband of over 25 years 69-year-old Frédéric Prinz von Anhalt took his wife to get care and is dismayed by her condition.
"This really f**ked up our Christmas," he told the website.
In November of last year, Zsa Zsa also underwent a similar health scare.
Concerns for her were raised after it was noticed that blood was spilling out of the feeding tube in her stomach.
Zsa Zsa has been in poor health for some years and was rushed for emergency care as recently as last month after being found unconscious and bleeding then.
The Hungarian-born star has been hospitalised several times since she fell and broke her hip in July 2010.
The Hollywood legend underwent the amputation of her right leg in March 2011 because of gangrene and was admitted for high blood pressure after the death of her friend Elizabeth Taylor.
Zsa Zsa starred in many films over the years including Moulin Rouge and is also known for having nine husbands and her catchphrase, "dahlink."
