The legendary Oscar-winning actress Elizabeth Taylor is being treated in hospital for heart failure.
The 78-year-old is being treated for symptoms caused by congestive heart failure, a condition she revealed she suffered from back in November 2004.
Her spokeswoman said that the star was admitted to the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles 'for monitoring' within the last couple of days, according to Daily Mail.
"Elizabeth Taylor was hospitalised earlier this week ... suffering from symptoms caused by congestive heart failure, an ongoing condition," her spokeswoman Sam Morrison said in a statement. "This issue is being addressed. She is currently being kept in the hospital for monitoring."
The statement continued: "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."
Dame Elizabeth had heart surgery in 2009 to replace a leaky valve and has a long history of health problems, Telegraph.co.uk reports.
