Larry Fortensky—20 years younger than Taylor—was working as a construction worker when he married the living legend in 1991 at Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch. He met Taylor while the two of them were in rehab at the Betty Ford Center. Taylor was there for her addiction to pills, and Fortensky was there for his chronic addiction to beer
Larry said that he and Taylor stayed in close, regular contact. He and Taylor would speak on the phone at least twice a month—their last call was the day before she went into the hospital for the final time. He says her voice was weak, a result of fluid on her lungs caused by her failing heart. "She was going into hospital the next day. I thought she was going to be OK. I told her she would outlive me. She said, “Larry, I’m going to be OK.” ’A few days later Fortensky learned of her death from the television.
