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

The premiere from Los Angeles the night before will be webcast live on www.ThisIsIt-Movie.com and on www.crackle.com, and organizers said fans will be able to comment and discuss the event on the web.
On the Internet, the 16 year-old Cyrus also can switch off unwanted public attention, just by deleting her Twitter page, as she did on Thursday, without a clear explanation.
