Could Dame Elizabeth Taylor be heading down the aisle for a ninth time?
According to an Us Weekly source, the 78-year-old Hollywood legend is engaged to manager Jason Winters, 49. However, while her rep confirms that La Liz is romantically linked to Winters, the rep would neither confirm or deny the engagement.
“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,” the source claimed. “Right now they are keeping it between them.”
In 2007, Access asked Liz about the possibility of getting married to Jason and she replied simply with, “Married? No!”
Jason, a talent manager from Sterling Winters Management, reportedly recently landed the job as Janet Jackson’s new manager.
In 2007, the actress gushed to columnist Liz Smith about Jason, saying, “Jason Winters is one of the most wonderful men I’ve ever known and that’s why I love him. He bought us the most beautiful house in Hawaii and we visit it as often as possible.”
Some of Liz’s previous marriages include Conrad Hiton (the grand-uncle of Paris and Nicky Hilton) Eddie Fisher (Carrie Fisher’s father; he famously left Debbie Reynolds for Liz), Richard Burton (two separate times) and most recently Larry Fortensky – from whom she split 1996.
When contacted by Access Hollywood, a rep for the actress confirmed that Liz and Jason were indeed a longtime couple – but stopped short of confirming a trip down the aisle.
“We generally don’t respond to queries regarding her relationship status, but it is well known and documented that they have been together for some time,” her rep told Access.
