*file photo* * TAYLOR COLLAPSED AFTER LEARNING OF JACKSON'S DEATH Screen legend DAME ELIZABETH TAYLOR sparked a medical emergency of her own on Thursday (25Jun09) when she collapsed in her Hollywood home after hearing about the tragic death of her longtime friend MICHAEL JACKSON. The Thriller hitmaker passed away after suffering a cardiac arrest at the age of 50. A representative for Taylor, who coined the phrase King of Pop as she presented him with an award in 1989, claimed the Oscar winner was too devastated to comment on the superstar's death in the hours following the shocking news. But it's now emerged the actress, 77, is recovering from her own health scare, which prompted her personal physician to make a late visit to her home on Thursday. According to In Touch magazine, Taylor was preparing to dash to UCLA Medical Centre in California to be by Jackson's bedside when she was told of his untimely demise. A source says, Liz was getting dressed when the second call came that Michael had died, and she collapsed. Liz is in a state of shock. She and Michael had their ups and downs, but she never stopped loving him. Now, she’s grief-stricken beyond words.
