Elizabeth Taylor, 78, is being treated at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles after suffering symptoms from congestive heart failure earlier this week.

Taylor's publicist says, "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."

The style icon underwent surgery for her heart condition in 2009, and she frequently updated her fans via Twitter about her condition. So far, the two-time Academy Award winner hasn't posted anything about her current trip to the hospital.

"The (health) issue is being addressed," her publicist's statement continues. "She is currently being kept in the hospital for monitoring."
