Inside their 6 year marriage

Jerry Hall and her husband, media mogul Rupert Murdoch, are reportedly divorcing after six years of marriage. Here’s everything we know about the couple’s relationship.

According to the New York Times, model Jerry Hall and her husband of six years, Rupert Murdoch, are divorcing for undisclosed reasons. Representatives for the couple have yet to comment on their sudden split.

Murdoch’s divorce is his fourth. Parting with his wife, on the other hand, seems like a risky move. There is speculation that the divorce will impact the wealth of the business tycoon.

According to the Daily Mail, Murdoch’s fortune is estimated at $17 billion. The 91-year-old business mogul married Hall in 2016, although it’s unclear if he and Hall, 65, have signed a prenup agreement.

Hall’s husband is said to own right-wing news brands including Fox News Channel in the US, The Sun in the UK and Sky News in Australia.


Murdoch and Hall’s romance was slow to blossom. Penny, Murdoch’s niece, introduced him to Hall and tried to convince them to date by complementing each other privately.

Penny revealed in a 2019 Harper’s Bazaar interview that she believed the couple was meant for each other. She said Murdoch needed extra encouragement to date Hall. Penny added:

“I just knew they were meant for each other, but Rupert is so shy, I had to give her a little nudge because he thought she was too famous for him!”

In 2016, Hall and Murdoch tied the knot in an intimate wedding at Spencer House, overlooking London’s Green Park, after a five-month romance. Many of the couple’s friends have gushed about their romance.

Murdoch wasn’t the only man Hall loved.

“Rupert is completely in love,” said author William Shawcross, one of Murdoch’s oldest friends. Another said the couple’s marriage worked out well since Hall wasn’t much of a “First Lady” figure, which Murdoch preferred.

Hall is an independent woman who is not easily swayed by wealth. According to the Washington Post, Hall said she didn’t want to be “directed” because she had her own money.

Murdoch wasn’t the only man Hall loved. The gorgeous model has had several relationships with high profile men including diplomats, musicians, entertainment executives and businessmen.

Of the many men he dated, Hall was deeply in love with English singer Mick Jagger, one of the founding members of iconic rock band Rolling Stone. Their relationship lasted 22 years.

They married in 1990 in Bali, Indonesia, but separated after Jagger had a child with another woman. After reaching an agreement, they would have received a “cancellation”.

When Hall married Murdoch, Jagger was reportedly unhappy with their union. The rockstar reportedly hated the idea of ​​Murdoch being part of his extended family.

While Jagger disliked Hall’s marriage to Murdoch, his children – Georgia May, Elizabeth, James and Gabriel – with Hall attended the ceremony.
