Ninth Marriage?

"Last week the Internet was atingle with rumors that Elizabeth Taylor, 78, was engaged for the ninth time to her much younger companion, Jason Winters. But the actress used Twitter to set the record straight. Who is Winters? The 49-year-old millionaire is reportedly the new manager for a famous pop star. Long-term commitment: Taylor opened up about their relationship back in 2007. The actress has discussed her failed marriages in many interviews. Wedding No. 1: Her first -- and shortest -- marriage was to a hotel heir. Star-crossed lovers: Taylor's first marriage to Richard Burton was her longest. Their second marriage also ended in divorce. The other men: She went on to marry an English actor, a producer, her dead husband's best friend and a politician. Her last marriage ended in 1996. Her kids: Taylor's marriages produced two sons, one daughter and one adopted daughter." -- Microsoft BING
