The whole old man/younger woman thing was alive and well in Miami Beach back in 1949 when a 17-year old starlet named Elizabeth Taylor was wooed by William Pawley, Jr., the 28-year-old son of a rich businessman with ties to Cuba and a very nice home in Miami. The relationship was very hush hush until this past week when letters written by Taylor to her "dearest Bill," whom she called "my whole life," surfaced before hitting the market. Conveniently, just as those letters are going up for sale, the home in which the two had their trysts is currently for rent at a mere $50,000 a month. The 9,146 square foot 7 bedroom, 9.5 bath house (including guest house) at 2555 Lake Ave. was completely renovated in 2009 and, says the marketing manager for the home's reps, high end realtors The Jills, will be going up for sale soon. Click here for the listing. Meanwhile, Pawley, Jr., who is now 90, told Inside Edition he was heartbroken and didn't marry for 25 years after the two split. Maybe he's in the market for a new home?
