No wedding bells for Elizabeth Taylor

If you spent the weekend worrying what wedding gift to buy for Elizabeth Taylor, you’re in the clear.

lizThe actress sent out a Twitter message on Monday denying an US Weekly report that she was planning to walk — or, more likely, roll in her wheelchair — down the aisle for a ninth time with a man almost 30 years her junior.

“The rumors regarding my engagement simply aren’t true. Jason is my manager and dearest friend. I love him with all my heart,” Taylor Tweeted.

“Jason” is talent manager Jason Winters. The US Weekly report, issued on Friday, said Winters was 49 and also represents Janet Jackson. The magazine quoted an unidentified source close to the 78-year-old actress as saying that the pair recently got engaged. Another source told the magazine that “they’ve been together forever and are in love.”

Taylor is arguably better known for her run of marriages than for an acting career that brought her a pair of Oscars. She has been on the singles scene since her five-year marriage to construction worker Larry Fortensky ended in divorce in 1996.
