Source: Elizabeth Taylor, 78, to Wed for 9th Time - to 49-Year-Old!

Dame Elizabeth Taylor may soon be walking down the aisle ... for the ninth time.

A source close to the Oscar-winning actress, 78, tells UsMagazine.com exclusively that Taylor recently got engaged to Jason Winters, 49, of Sterling Winters Management.

Taylor - who now predominantly uses a wheelchair - and Winters - who recently became Janet Jackson's new manager - have yet to confirm the news.

Says another insider: "It's no secret that they've been together forever and are in love, so it wouldn't be a surprise if they were engaged. Right now they are keeping it between them."

In 2007, British papers reported that Taylor and Winters took a romantic vacation together at a Hawaiian resort. Taylor spent "the evening caressing the face of [Winters]," reported the Evening Standard. At the time, the paper quoted a source as saying: "She didn't think she'd fall in love again, but since Jason came into her life that has all changed.

The screen legend has also gushed about Winters to gossip columnist Liz Smith, describing him as "one of the most wonderful men I've ever known, that's why I love him." He even reportedly bought a house for them.

The screen legend has been married eight times - twice to love Richard Burton. Her last union, to construction worker Larry Fortensky, ended after five years in 1996.

I wonder if Michael would have given the bride away. I think he did at her wedding to Fortensky. I wish her all the happiness in the world. She is a great lady and knows the true meaning of friendship. Paris would make a beautiful flower girl.


sami   April 9th, 2010 8:51 pm ET

She thought of Michael as her son, and Mr. Winters is a couple of years younger than he was.

Good for you, Elizabeth.<3

Congratulations to Elizabeth, glad she is feeling well and energized with love.


thomas   April 10th, 2010 12:55 am ET

very difficult to be alone & lonely when we are older..good for her !


Rock with You Horsegirl   April 10th, 2010 1:46 am ET

If this is true I wonder how long this marriage will last! This man she is supposedly engaged to is about at young as Michael Jackson and she's 78! What a world we live in.


lola   April 10th, 2010 1:53 am ET

Ain't love grand?


Jessie from Auckland, NZ   April 10th, 2010 2:40 am ET

Never say never! Well, well, good on Elizabeth Taylor. She never gives up on love. Isn't that a lovely picture of them above too.

Wish them all the best for the future.


Candy°°   April 10th, 2010 6:24 am ET

her big and only real love was Burton ...


MJs Tink   April 10th, 2010 6:26 am ET

Congratulations Elizabeth! I love you!!


kathy 40   April 10th, 2010 7:06 am ET

I'm very puzzled. Liz said of Michael :"He was the purest love I ever had. I don't know how I can live him". Strange that Liz and MJ didn't really "fall in love" having been so close. This guy is even younger than Michael. If it's true then of course I wish them well. Still..... very, very peculiar!!!!!!!


Judie   April 10th, 2010 10:12 am ET

Dear Liz,
I wish you the best.... only you my dear could pull off another marriage.
Bravo to you and happiness always.


Lori - Justice for Michael   April 10th, 2010 11:58 am ET

Good on ta, Liz! If you can find love, at any time in life, it is a grand thing. I hope it works out for you. Don't forget to do a pre-nup!


claire   April 10th, 2010 1:37 pm ET

Elizabeth, CONGRATULATIONS if this is true.
May God be with you.


SuzieHintCue   April 10th, 2010 1:45 pm ET

Liz oh Liz! You haven't learned your lesson? Ah well, best wishes to you dear Dame. Hope it works out this time!🙂


Leona Henderson   April 10th, 2010 3:12 pm ET

Elizabeth, you are my most loved celebrity and I am happy for you when you are happy. God love you.


mary-jane   April 10th, 2010 9:00 pm ET

Well Liz, maybe the 9th time is a winner! Lets hope so for your sake! Good luck!


Mariam   April 11th, 2010 7:43 am ET

Dear Liz,

Loved ur films and glad u were nice to mj. wish you so much happiness,


Ted   April 11th, 2010 10:43 am ET

During the past few months several men were dragged through the mud for cheating on their wives! Good so!

Elisabeth Taylor always cheated on her husband with the next one, and I am sure with a lot more, and we never did hear such an uproar as we do with men.

Love is great, you make me laugh!
This guy is marrying Mommy for the fame or the financial rewards, or both. If she wanted company she could have it without getting married again, to her getting a new husband is the same as for most of us getting a new car.


Idzan Ismail, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia   April 11th, 2010 10:43 am ET

Omigod. Such stamina.


Maria Copelli   April 11th, 2010 12:30 pm ET

Ted ,'Live and Let Live'........Maria C.


Dakota   April 11th, 2010 1:06 pm ET

it just goes to show you that there is hope for all of us to find love and and happiness. She deserves to be happy and in love with all she has been through in her life You go girl Enjoy and be happy


Jessie from Auckland, NZ   April 11th, 2010 6:04 pm ET

@Ted April 11th, 2010 10:43 am ET

Interesting. Lol. Don't spoil it for her ok.

By the way is he really 49 years old? He kinda looks older to me, sorry.


Max   April 11th, 2010 7:12 pm ET

Elisabeth Taylor, I wish you and your new husband to be all the happiness in the world. I'm so happy for ya. When I get 78 years old, I hope I'll look as good as you do now . God bless.


Dodie   April 11th, 2010 7:18 pm ET

Liz, enjoy! That's what live is all about! Wishing you all the happiness!


bERTHA CECILIA URDINOLA ALJURE - Wageningen - Holland   April 12th, 2010 1:33 am ET

LIz

God bless you!


giani   April 12th, 2010 6:16 am ET

WHITE TRASH!!!!!!!


Ted   April 12th, 2010 8:55 am ET

Lizzy looks good, just like Mona Lisa!!
And at least that much paint on her face.
Do you think she may have time for the 10th and perhaps the 11th husband? You call it love, I call it something else, because that woman never loved anybody else, but herself.
As you can see I never was a fan of her, for me beauty means something entirely different. Natural beauty come from inside of you, you cannot paint it with a pound of different rouges and creams.
Getting old with grace is not known in Hollywood, town full of ugly old women with distorted faces, due to too many facelifts that went wrong.

Just more evidence that CNN is becoming nothing more than tabloid news. Before you even validated your story you ran this blog. It is just the ideal proof that you are starving for reality by searching the surreal. Try employing responsible, intelligent, and skilled journalists for a change. I understand by a recent consensus there are plenty on the streets looking for work...


GALLEXIE   April 12th, 2010 4:45 pm ET

CONGRADULATIONS TO LIZ AND HER NEW BEAU,
THE JESTURE IS FABULOUS, BLACK AND WHITE,
AMERICA NEEDS TO GROW UP AND PUT AWAY HATRED AND
RACISM.
WE NEED TO BECOME BETTER EXAMPLES TO THE WORLD,
THIS UNION COMES AT A TIME WHEN THY ARE ANNOUNCING
APRIL AS THE CONFEDERACY MONTH IN VIRGINA, THE GOVERNOR
SAID FOR TOURISM. IS IT A MEETING GROUND FOR TEA PARTY MOVEMENTS TO ENDORSE AN ALREADY TENSE AMERICA'S RACE
ISSUES.
IDLOVE TO SEE A BOOK FROM LIZ ABOUT THE DEVELOPMENT OF
THIS RELATIONSHIP AND HOW IT WOULD HAVE BEEN DIFFERENT
50 YEARS AGO.
THE WORLD IS CHANGING


Dodie   April 12th, 2010 6:25 pm ET

@ CNN

Elizabeth Taylor Denies Engagement Reports on the news. I strongly advise you check out your sources before printing anything like this. You have no idea how this inaccurate news can hurt these people.


Idzan Ismail, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia   April 13th, 2010 12:32 am ET

Dodie

If she marries him, Liz will match Zsa Zsa Gabor's nine-marriage streak. A similarity between them is both married and divorced Conrad Hilton.


Dodie   April 13th, 2010 8:49 pm ET

Idzan Ismail, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Elizabeth Taylor made a statement yesterday I guess in a news conference that she has no intentions of marrying him.

This is an erroneous report. A mass media mess up!


loraottawacanada   April 14th, 2010 9:13 am ET

Why was my post deleted?????


Jessie from Auckland, NZ   April 16th, 2010 12:32 pm ET

It seems that Dame Elizabeth Taylor has now come out on her Twitter..........stating that this story is simply not true..........and that this man is her manager and dearest friend.

Did someone get their wires crossed here I wonder.
