Dame Elizabeth Taylor may soon be walking (OK, wheeling) down the aisle for the ninth time.
Taylor reportedly is engaged to Jason Winters, Janet Jackson‘s manager. She’s 78 and he’s 49 so it must be real love. If this union happens — or even if it doesn’t and they just keep dating — Liz is now officially the senior (as in having attained seniority) Hollywood cougar.
]]>Us is reporting the engagement but Taylor and Winters have yet to confirm. “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, says the Us source. “Right now they are keeping it between them.” In 2007, British tabloids reported Taylor and Winters’ romantic Hawaiian vacation. Liz 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.” Taylor has been previoiusly married eight times — twice to Richard Burton. Then there were the fried chicken years when she was married to Senator John Warner. Her last union, to construction worker Larry Fortensky, whom she met in rehab, ended after five years in 1996. At last report, he was living in a trailer. Let’s hope this hubby lasts for the hopefully long haul. Follow Zap2it’s Dish Rag on Twitter and Facebook for the latest celeb news and dish
