Elizabeth Taylor is preparing to wed for the ninth time.
The serial wife and screen icon, 78, recently became engaged to 49-year-old Jason Winters of Sterling Winters Management, according to a report from Us Magazine.
Winters reps such high-powered clients as Janet Jackson, the sister of Taylor’s longtime friend Michael Jackson.
Taylor and Winters have not yet confirmed the news.
“It’s no secret that they’ve been together forever and are in love,” a source tells Us. “It wouldn’t be a surprise if they were engaged. Right now they are keeping it between them.”
Taylor and Winters were spotted three years ago on vacation in Hawaii. British papers reported that she spent one evening “caressing” his face. They have also appeared on red carpets together since then.
Taylor told famed gossip columnist Liz Smith that Winters is “one of the most wonderful men I’ve ever known, that’s why I love him.”
Taylor divorced her last husband, construction worker Larry Fortensky, in 1996 after five years of marriage.
People who treat marriage like a hobby as Elizabeth Taylor does, need psychological help. Of course, the fools that wed serial marriage folks like Taylor deserve half of the blame too.
