Although Frederic is aware his decision will be controversial among animal lovers, he believes the move is unavoidable after being told by doctors his wife will 'never get out of bed'. He said: "Why should I pay 1200 dollars a year? The furs don't get better with age and I need lots of money to pay bills so I'm going to sell them. I'm sure the animal lovers will be upset by this sale but what am I going to do with them?
"Zsa Zsa is an animal lover too so I was surprised she even bought the coats. She will never wear them again. The doctor says she will never get out of bed so I want the coats out of our life."
