Prince Frederic von Anhalt released a photo of his ailing 94-year-old wife, Zsa Zsa Gabor, apparently toasting his 68th birthday on Monday.

Her only child, Francesca Hilton, is not pleased.

“He once again uses my mother to bring publicity to himself," Hilton told CNN in a statement. “He once again releases photos of my mother in unflattering situations without hair and makeup, two things that were so important to her.”

“This time he is feeding her alcohol, which could be detrimental to her condition since she is on numerous medications,” she said. “It's disgusting and no one is doing anything about it.”

The actress and socialite has been suffering from serious health issues for several years, including the amputation of the lower part of one of her legs in January. The release of this photo comes two months after von Anhalt told reporters he wanted his wife to become a mother again via a surrogate. Hilton also had something to say about that: “That’s just weird.”
