Liz Taylor, as she is also known for, was brought to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center this week for treatment of congestive heart failure; Jamie Cadwell, her representative, said.

“This issue is being addressed, and she (Liz Taylor) is currently being kept in the hospital for monitoring.” Cadwell said, in which her spokeswoman, Sally Morrison have also confirmed.

The 78-year old veteran actress was said to have been diagnosed with congestive heart failure back in November 2004, and had an operation in October 2009 when doctors repaired a leaky heart valve.

She has appeared in more than 50 films, won Oscar Best Actress awards, and considered as one of the greatest actresses in her time; and known to be a good friend of the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson.

Liz Taylor married eight times, and two of them with the same man, Richard Burton, whom she was also divorced twice.
