Taylor was laid to rest not far from her friend Michael Jackson. In the tradition of celebutantes; she was late for her own funeral, something she had requested. In accordance with her adopted Jewish faith, she was buried just 24 hours after her death. No shiva, but a Jewish burial. Reportedly her children believe her gay manager may inherit her money. Debbie Reynolds, who patched things up with Dame Elizabeth before she passed away of congestive heart failure, said that Taylor was in considerable pain before she died.
