Michael Jackson: Elizabeth Taylor honors her good friend

Posted on

Screen icon Elizabeth Taylor is speaking out about the death of her longtime friend Michael Jackson. “My heart…my mind… are broken,” she said in a statement. “I loved Michael with all my soul and I can’t imagine life without him. We had so much in common and we had such loving fun together.”

Taylor revealed that she had been packing her bags for London — the location of Jackson’s much anticipated comeback concerts — when she heard the tragic news. “I still can’t believe it. I don’t want to believe it. It can’t be so,” she said. “He will live in my heart forever but it’s not enough. My life feels so empty. I don’t think anyone knew how much we loved each other. The purest most giving love I’ve ever known.”

The obviously distraught star continued: “Oh God! I’m going to miss him. I can’t yet imagine life with out him. But I guess with God’s help… I’ll learn. I keep looking at the photo he gave me of himself, which says, ‘To my true love Elizabeth, I love you forever.’ And, I will love HIM forever.”
