Zsa Zsa Sued Viagra’s Pfizer In 2000 ‘for making husband impotent’
Zsa Zsa Gabor and her husband, Prince Frederic von Anhalt, sued the makers of Viagra for allegedly making him impotent.
The then 56-year-old prince said he was demanding $10 million from the drug company Pfizer, claiming he became dependent on the little blue pills.
He said: “At first I took the stuff to increase my desire. Now nothing happens at all without Viagra. I have doctors’ testimony which confirms this.
“My suit is already before the court. If Pfizer does not make representation before November 21, there will be a fat trial.”
A letter from the prince’s lawyers is headed “Frederic Prinz von Anhalt and Zsa Zsa Gabor v Pfizer Inc. Settlement demand – $10,000,000.00.”
The letter, from the law officers of Eisenberg and Fink, based in Irvine, California, read: “This is a formal demand for damages on behalf of my client, Frederic von Anhalt, who was severely and permanently damaged as a result of his use of your product, Viagra.
“He has foreseeably suffered a permanent loss of his ability to have a normal sex life due to Pfizer’s negligent manufacture, marketing and distribution of Viagra. This has caused him significant mental distress and a pronounced loss in the quality of his life.”
The prince claimed his then 78-year-old actress wife had suffered from the situation.
“The poor thing is completely under it with her nerves, and has even had to go to a clinic. After all, she also has her needs, which should be satisfied,” he added.
Prince will tell you the suit was subsequently settled out of court with terms undisclosed and a provision for sealed records. Get him to tell you about getting bitten by Zsa
Zsa’s dog that area of the anatomy which was the true cause of his “significant mental distress and a pronounced loss in the quality of his life.” The truth only hurts worse.
Well, maybe not.
