Larry Fortensky, Elizabeth Taylor

Elizabeth Taylor met her eighth (and final) husband, construction worker Larry Fortensky, in 1988 when the two were both in treatment at the Betty Ford Clinic, battling their drug and alcohol addictions when she was 56 and he was 36. The couple wed in 1991 at Taylor’s pal Michael Jackson’s Neverland Ranch, where Jackson himself gave away the bride in front of 150 guests. The couple split five years later and Taylor left Fortensky $1 million in her will when she died last year.
