*Turns out it won’t be marriage No. 9 for Elizabeth Taylor.
After reports surfaced last week that she was engaged to her longtime manager/boyfriend Jason Winters, the legendary actress took to her Twitter page Monday to set the record straight.
“The rumors regarding my engagement simply aren’t true,” she tweeted. “Jason is my manager and dearest friend. I love him with all my heart.”
Taylor, 78, has been married eight times to seven different men: Conrad Hilton Jr., Michael Wilding, Mike Todd, Eddie Fisher, Richard Burton (twice), John Warner and Larry Fortensky. She has been single since her divorce from Fortensky in 1996.
Winters, 49, is a principal in Sterling Winters Management. In 2007, Taylor told columnist Liz Smith: “Jason Winters is one of the most wonderful men I’ve ever known and that’s why I love him. He bought us the most beautiful house in Hawaii and we visit it as often as possible.”
