Murdoch to marry Jerry Hall
January 12, 2016
Rupert Murdoch used the classifieds of his London Times newspaper to announce what will be his fourth marriage, this time to Jerry Hall, 59, the former wife of Mick Jagger. Murdoch split with his third wife, Wendi Deng in 2013 after 14 years.
Murdoch, 84, and Hall began dating last year after they were introduced by one of his sisters and a niece in Australia, according to The Times. They went public with their relationship in October. The couple have 10 children between them.
Murdoch and Deng split not long after her ferocious defence of him when he was ‘pied’ while appearing before a Parliamentary investigation of the phone hacking by his News Corp newspapers. It is reported there was considerable family turmoil over bringing Murdoch and Deng’s two young daughters into the family trust that controls about 40 per cent of the voting stock of both News Corp and 21st Century Fox.
