Rupert Murdoch’s wife of six years Jerry Hall set to divorce

Media mogul Rupert Murdoch and his model and actress wife Jerry Hall are reportedly getting divorced, according to reports by The New York Times.

The US publication’s reports followed on from two anonymous sources “with knowledge of the decision.”

Business tycoon Rupert Murdoch, 91, is familiar across the world for his media empire and is executive chairman of News Corp as well as co-chairman of Fox Corporation. Hall, 65, is a Texas-born model and actress who rose to fame in the 70s as one of the most sought-after fashion models.

The reports come after six years of marriage, with the couple celebrating their latest anniversary in March.

A look at Jerry Hall and Rupert Murdoch’s wedding celebrations six years on

Jerry Hall and Rupert Murdoch tied the knot in March 2016, a week before Murdoch’s 85th birthday (11 March) and almost a year after meeting.

The couple formally married in a small and intimate civil ceremony where they were joined by close friends and family. The following day Hall and Murdoch reaffirmed their vows in central London at the St Bride’s church in Fleet Street.

According to The Guardian, the couple’s celebrations following their reaffirmed vows were attended by up to 100, including politicians and leading figures in the world of publishing and entertainment.

Michael Gove and Priti Patel, as well as Andrew Lloyd Webber and Bob Geldof, were some of their many A-list invitees alongside Hall and Murdoch’s family.

They were set to wed just months after meeting

The couple first crossed paths in the summer of 2015 in Australia when Hall was touring there amid her feature in a production of The Graduate.

The two were introduced by Penny Fowler the niece of Murdoch’s sister Janet. They were said to have soon hit it off, with the pair said to have “got on immediately” after their meeting.

The couple later went public with their relationship in October 2015 when they attended the Rugby World Cup final in Twickenham, London, together.

Hall and Murdoch were set to marry four months after they met as news of their engagement was announced in the births, marriages and deaths section of The Times newspaper in January 2016.

Hall was Murdoch’s fourth wife

The media mogul had said his ‘I dos’ three times before his latest marriage to Jerry Hall.

He wed his first wife, Patricia Booker, who was an Australian flight attendant, in 1956. They were married for 11 years and welcomed their daughter Prudence before they split in 1967.

Murdoch soon remarried his second wife, Anna Torv, a former newspaper journalist. They were wed just over three decades before going their separate ways in 1999 and had three children, two sons, Lachlan and James, as well as a daughter Elisabeth.

His third marriage was to Wendi Deng, a Chinese-born businesswoman, with who he was with for 14 years before their split in 2014. Murdoch and Deng share daughters, Chloe and Grace.

Elsewhere, Hall is known for her relationship with Rolling Stones rocker legend, Mick Jagger. The couple tied the knot in 1990, but according to People, the wedding was not a legal wedding. During their relationship, they welcomed four children together Georgia May, Elizabeth, James and Gabriel.
