Elizabeth Taylor Denies Engagement Rumors

elizabeth-taylor-1958That she loves manager Jason Winters is true, but she being engaged to him is mere speculation. Elizabeth Taylor shot down rumors that she was headed to her ninth marriage via twitter, saying that: “The rumors regarding my engagement simply aren’t true. Jason is my manager and dearest friend. I love him with all my heart.”

The 78-year-old Taylor made the clarification after reports came out last week that she and Winters, a 49-year-old principal in Sterling Winters Management, was engaged. Taylor has been married eight times to seven men. The late Richard Burton has the distinction of marrying and separating twice with the Dame. Taylor’s last marriage was to Larry Fortensky in 1991. They divorced in October 1996.

Winters has been friends with Taylor for a long time, but the two have denied that their relationship is headed for the altar. In 2007, Taylor was quoted in an interview as saying that “Jason Winters is one of the most wonderful men I’ve ever known and that’s why I love him.”
