Elizabeth Taylor is to wed for a ninth time, according to U.S. reports. Sources claim the 78-year-old movie icon and her longtime companion Jason Winters, 49, recently became engaged.
An insider tells Us Magazine, "It's no secret that they've been together forever and are in love... Right now they are keeping it between them." Taylor has often spoken publicly about her feelings for Winters, who recently became Janet Jackson's manager - she recently told gossip columnist Liz Smith that her "friend" was "one of the most wonderful men I've ever known".
Taylor has been married twice to Richard Burton. Her last union, to construction worker Larry Fortensky, ended in 1996.
Elizabeth Taylor formally introduced Jason Winters as her partner in September 2007. During an interview with Variety, the "Malice in Wonderland" star revealed that the businessman bought them "the most beautiful house in Hawaii" and visited it as often as possible.
