De Alba was briefly married to the actress Zsa Zsa Gabor. The wedding, however, was declared invalid, since the actress's prior marriage to Michael O'Hara had not been properly dissolved. The de Alba-Gabor union was annulled and they did not stay together.[2] De Alba relocated to New York City, and died there in 2005.

Personal lifeEdit

His marriage to Zsa Zsa Gabor is one of the shortest marriages in history.[3] They were married 13 April 1983 but it was annulled the next day on 14 April 1983.
