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.

Diagnosis: True Legend
The biggest celebrity couple of all time was/is Richard Burton & Elizabeth Taylor. If they were together now instead of the 60's and 70's, they would be talked about more than Brad and Angelina and be followed any and everywhere.
It was so nice, they married twice. Divorced twice as well.
Elizabeth Taylor has made public love letters that Richard wrote Liz over the years to Vanity Fair.
It includes nicknames he called Taylor including “My Lumps,” “Dearest Scrupelshrumpilstilskin,” and “Twit Twaddle.”My Lumps? Um, I think Wil.I.Am. owes Liz some song royalties.
“If you leave me I shall have to kill myself. There is no life without you,” Burton wrote. Pretty powerful stuff. Romance and passion...and little bit of craziness.
"You must know, of course, how much I love you. You must know, of course, how badly I treat you."
'You are probably the best actress in the world, which, combined with your extraordinary beauty, makes you unique."
Elizabeth Taylor had this to say about the letters and Richard; "Richard was magnificent in every sense of the word," "From those first moments in Rome [The Cleopatra set] we were always madly and powerfully in love."
There is one letter that Liz keeps by her nightstand and refused to publish but read to editors. She says she reads it every night before bed and it is right by her nightstand.
One can only hope true love, passion, and romance like this will make a comeback. Just hold the craziness. This might be one print media article actually picking up to read.-Dr.FB
Elizabeth Taylor was in London late last week for a tribute for her late husband Richard Burton where a bust was revealed in his honor.
Dame Elizabeth was dressed up a beautiful red dress but did not look as healthy as she did a few months ago. As we reported exclusively 2 weeks ago, Taylor was admitted to a hospital in Beverly Hills but not for health issues. She was there for psychiatric reasons and went there voluntary.
It's hard to see the Hollywood legend like this. She was very sad and somber at the event as she still feels that Richard Burton was the love of her life. So much so, she actually married him twice. Her career was in a major swing when she was with Burton as many in Hollywood can agree.
For the record, Taylor never denied our story via her Twitter account and neither have her reps.-Dr.FB
