“As Francesca’s publicist and one of her best friends I am shocked,” Lozzi said. “We were on the phone minutes before she died. We were discussing her book she was writing and a possible deal. She had to go to the restroom. She never made it out.”
Hilton had been embroiled in a long feud with her mother’s ninth husband, Frederic Prinz von Anhalt, over his guardianship of his 97-year-old wife and the expenses incurred in looking after her.READ MORE: Pelinka Says All Lakers Players Will Be Fully Vaccinated By Season Opener
Hilton called her attorney Ken Kossoff just hours before her death, asking that he take action against von Anhalt for allegedly violating a court order, allowing her to visit her mother, Lozzi said.
Hilton is a great aunt of socialite Paris Hilton.
Funeral arrangements are pending, Lozzi said.MORE NEWS: Suspect Brandishing Gun During Standoff Shot, Killed By Deputies Near Lancaster
