Zsa Zsa Gabor‘s husband Prince Frederic Von Anhalt has filed a lawsuit against TV news host Bill O’Reilly after the anchorman made disparaging comments against him on air.
The Hungarian royal, who hit the headlines last month when he claimed to be the possible father of Anna Nicole Smith‘s baby daughter, was appalled when O’Reilly attacked him on his O’Reilly Factor show.
In a lawsuit filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court and obtained by TMZ.com yesterday, Von Anhalt says O’Reilly called him a “fraud,” among other things, during a February 23 broadcast.
The prince insists O’Reilly “knew that the statements were false” and used them to “directly injure his reputation in a substantial portion of his community.”
The royal is demanding $10 million in damages.
