Prince has been rocking the Carolina's for the past week and before his shows, there have been photos of Elizabeth Taylor playing in a loop.

The legendary actress who died last week from congestive heart failure and was a close friend of the late Michael Jackson.  So what is Prince's connection? 

Aside from being a major film buff, there is that story that back in the 80's, Elizabeth Taylor met Prince through Michael Jackson.  The tale has been gossip fodder for years and no one really knows what took place aside that food was served.

Regardless, Prince is a private person and this is his way of paying tribute to her.-Dr.FB

Elizabeth Taylor has passed away at the age of 79.  She has been hospitalized for over a month at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. 

She was hospitilized last year at Cedars as well, a story we broke but was denied by CNN.  She made a trip overseas last year when Richard Burton was being recognized for his achievements.  She considered Burton her soul mate although she married several times. 

Taylor's health became a concern in 2009 as she did not take part in her good friend Michael Jackson's funeral.

The cause of death is congestive heart failure. 

"Good Morning America" broke the story and confirmed her passing. 

Elizabeth Taylor, one of the first iconic women of film will be missed.-Dr.FB
