Elizabeth Taylor is currently in the hospital, according to new reports, after complications arose due to signs of congestive heart failure.
“This issue is being addressed. She is currently being kept in the hospital for monitoring,” a rep for the 78-year-old film icon explained via E! Online.
Elizabeth’s rep asks that the actress’ privacy be respected during this hard time so that she can focus on recovering.
“Her family and close friends are appreciative of the warm support and interest of her loyal fans but have asked that people respect her privacy and allow her medical team the time and space to focus on restoring her back to health.”
Elizabeth had surgery for congestive heart failure in 2009.
