ELIZABETH Taylor had a long friendship with Michael Jackson and was clearly devastated after hearing about his death. She released a statement to the press explaining how shes feeling. Heres what Elizabeth wrote. Its heartbreaking My heart ... my mind ... are broken. I loved Michael with all my soul and I cant imagine life without him. We had so much in common and we had such loving fun together. I was packing up my clothes to go to London for his opening when I heard the news. I still cant believe it. I dont want to believe it. It cant be so. He will live in my heart forever but its not enough. My life feels so empty. I dont think anyone knew how much we loved each other. The purest most giving love Ive ever known. Oh God Im going to miss him. I cant yet imagine life without him. But I guess with Gods help ... Ill 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. - HS
