Hollywood legend said to be engaged

Elizabeth Taylor is apparently getting hitched for a ninth time.

US tabloids claim the actress, 78, is engaged to Hollywood agent Jason Winters, 49.

Her spokeswoman was unable to confirm the news.

But she added: ‘It’s no secret they are in love, so it wouldn’t be a surprise if they were engaged.’

Dame Elizabeth has been single since divorcing builder Larry Fortensky in 1996.

UPDATE – Elizabeth has now denied the claims on her Twitter

‘The rumours regarding my engagement simply aren’t true,’ she wrote.

Jason is my manager and dearest friend. I love him with all my heart.’
