Burton's widow: 'Final love letter to Taylor didn't exist'

The Hollywood legends famously enjoyed a passionate but tumultuous romance after first meeting on the set of Cleopatra in 1963, and they married twice over a 13-year period, but both unions ended in divorce.

Burton's widow Sally, who wed the actor a year before his death in 1984, has largely remained silent over the reports about his romance with his former flame, who passed away in March (11).

But earlier this year (11), she admitted she was ""sick"" of hearing about their love saying, ""I get p**sed off with all the talk of the great love story. Yes, they were in love but they got divorced twice, that means their marriage didn't work.""

She has now spoken out again to dismisses revelations in a book called Furious Love, which was released earlier this year (11) and suggested Burton wrote a final message to Taylor, who reportedly claimed, ""He wanted to come home (to me).""

Reports even suggested the letter was buried with Taylor because she treasured it so much, but Sally Burton is adamant the story about the letter is not true.

She tells Britain's Daily Telegraph, ""It's a wondrously romantic story, but there are other people involved here... There was no letter. My lawyer talked to... other lawyers... and there was no letter.""

She also admits the release of Furious Love upset her, adding, ""Yes, I was fairly upset about that book. And, of course, I was distressed about the idea of a final letter from Richard to Elizabeth... My love for him has never diminished.""
