Following Michael Jackson’s death, Elizabeth Taylor was admitted to the hospital with sadness.
When Michael Jackson died in 2009, he left a number of bereaved individuals behind, but his friend and companion, Elizabeth Taylor, was particularly saddened by the news.
Michael Jackson died on June 25, 2009, at the age of 50. An accidental overdose of propofol supplied by his personal physician, Conrad Murray, killed the singer and performer. The music business was shocked by the news of the star’s death, as he had been a cornerstone of entertainment for more than 40 years. Elizabeth, one of his long-time friends, was horrified by what had happened to him after his death.
In the 1980s, Elizabeth and Michael became friends and were regularly seen together.
Elizabeth was seen supporting Michael in all he did when they weren’t out having fun and attending events together in Hollywood.
As a result, Michael’s death was a life-changing event for him.
Elizabeth released an emotional statement upon his death, saying, “My heart… my thoughts… are broken.”
“I loved Michael with all my heart and soul, and I can’t picture life without him,” Elizabeth concluded. We had a lot of interests and had a lot of fun together.
“I keep staring at the photo of himself he gave me, which reads, ‘To my true love Elizabeth, I love you forever.’”
“And, I shall love HIM forever,” the emotional wreck added.
Following this statement, Elizabeth was reportedly hospitalized after trying to cope with her friend’s death.
The 77-year-old was admitted to a Los Angeles hospital, according to the New York Post at the time.
Cindy Adams, a columnist, observed, “Her heart has gone out of her.”
“She’s experiencing fatigue, exhaustion, and emotional exhaustion. She hasn’t been able to stop weeping. She and Michael were completely dedicated to each other.”
More allegations appeared stating the actress was on “suicide watch,” but she disputed these claims on Twitter.
“I wanted you my friends to know that I’m going into the hospital on Wednesday or Thursday to finish a test I was in the middle of,” Elizabeth wrote at the time.
“Although my sadness for Michael is unfathomable, I am not on the verge of committing suicide, as some of the cheaper ‘rags’ would have you believe.”
The singer was devastated by the death of her pal, with whom she shared a similar background.
Elizabeth recounted how they first became such good friends in an interview with Oprah Winfrey.
