CONRAD HILTON JR.

May 6, 1950–Jan. 29, 1951
Taylor was only 18 when she wed 23-year-old hotel heir Conrad "Nicky" Hilton. But the ill-fated marriage began crumbling even before their 14-week European honeymoon was over. Hilton "became sullen, angry and abusive, physically and mentally," Taylor wrote in her 1988 autobiography Elizabeth Takes Off.
