Report: Elizabeth Taylor to wed for the ninth time

April 9, 2010 | 12:40 pm

Liz honeymoon Elizabeth Taylor may be ready to tie the knot again, this time with talent manager Jason Winters, Us magazine reports.

The two, who've been romantically linked for several years, are decades apart in age -- she's 78, he's 49 -- but according to an Us source "they've been together forever and are in love." Winters, co-founder of Sterling/Winters Co., is Janet Jackson's new manager, the magazine says.

This would be "I do" No. 9 for the actress, famously married to and divorced from Conrad "Nicky" Hilton Jr., Michael Wilding, Eddie Fisher, Richard Burton, Richard Burton again, Sen. John Warner and Larry Fortensky. Taylor split from Fortensky in 1996. And she was widowed in 1958 when husband Mike Todd died in a plane crash.
