Elizabeth Taylor

Gay Bar War

Over Shrine Portrait

3/6/2014 12:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0305_liz_taylor_painting_main
Elizabeth Taylor is causing strife in the gay world 3 years after her death ... a portrait of the late icon is allegedly being held HOSTAGE by a famous gay club, and a lawsuit is brewing.

Jesse Davis -- who worked as a VIP manager for The Abbey in West Hollywood for years -- tells TMZ, ET personally gifted the painting to him in 2009 ... and he thought The Abbey would be the perfect place to display it.

Jesse says the painting quickly became a fixture in the club -- with tourists flocking there for a glimpse -- but when he left in 2011 ... the club would not release the portrait.

The painting hangs on The Abbey's wall to this day, and Jesse's patience has worn out ... either the Abbey returns it or it will be on the receiving end of a lawsuit.

Why are gay people getting their panties all up in a bunch over a portrait of a woman? It's not like they can fap to it.

If put up at auction,I just found out this portrait could go for at least 125,000. This dude better get it back like now! By the way, I saw Mr. Levin driving a Porsce the other day in L.A looking like Jessica Tandy!!

Some people need to quit judging others and being so rude. If it's his painting, then they should give it back. Obviously they were good friends for her to give it to him, so I'm sure it has sentimental value. Do the right thing!

Give the painting back-do the right thing. HE was kind enough to share, now give it back to its rightful owner. People with money think they can steamroll over everyone in thier path- so rude!
