Billionaire Rupert Murdoch And Supermodel Jerry Hall Set To Divorce After 6 Years

Billionaire Rupert Murdoch And Supermodel Jerry Hall Set To Divorce After 6 Years

Media baron Rupert Murdoch and former top model Jerry Hall are set to divorce, reports claim.

According to the New York Times, two people who know about the decision anonymously confirmed that the couple were going to split up.

It would be the fourth divorce for the 91-year-old Murdoch, while 65-year-old Hall previously wed Rolling Stones lead singer Mick Jagger in a marriage that was declared null and void in 1999.

Bryce Tom, a spokesperson for Murdoch, told us he had 'no official guidance or comment on this matter'.

The NYT suggest that the split could have an impact on Murdoch's media empire as people close to him reportedly said he was spending more time on his marriage to Hall.

Murdoch's designated successor is son Lachlan and he was reportedly allowing his children more room to run things.

Whether this means a shake up of Murdoch's media empire is on the cards or not, only time will tell.

Murdoch and Hall married in March 2016 at a mansion in central London, which Murdoch celebrated by announcing he'd be leaving social media site Twitter.

The pair then had a celebration at St Bride's Church on Fleet Street, the traditional home of the British media which Murdoch played a pivotal role in transforming with his ownership of various titles.

A friend of the pair described them as 'like a married couple already' before their wedding as they were 'very sweet together, in a little couple bubble'.

The New York Times also reported that sources close to Murdoch were 'surprised to hear of his split' from Hall.

They recount that the couple were spotted at Murdoch's 90th birthday party where Hall appeared to be 'doting' on her husband.

Murdoch has six children from his previous three marriages, while Hall had four children with Mick Jagger before they split up.

Murdoch's media empire includes The Sun and The Times newspapers in the UK, Fox News, the New York Post and the Wall Street Journal in the US along with Australian outlets Sky News Australia, The Daily Telegraph, Herald Sun and The Australian.

He was also previously the owner of the now defunct British paper News of the World, the Sky broadcasting group and 21st Century Fox.

With a net worth of around $21.7 billion, he is one of the richest people in the world.
