Jerry Hall and her husband, media magnate Rupert Murdoch, will reportedly divorce after six years of marriage. Here's everything we know about the couple's relationship.


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

Murdoch's divorce is his fourth. Parting ways with his wife, on the other hand, appears to be a risky move. There are speculations that the divorce will impact the business magnate's wealth.

According to the Daily Mail, Murdoch's fortune is estimated to be worth $17 billion. The 91-year-old business magnate married Hall in 2016, although it's unclear whether he and Hall, 65, signed a pre-nuptial agreement.

Hall's husband reportedly owns the right-wing news brands, including Fox News Channel in the United States, The Sun in the United Kingdom, and Sky News in Australia.



Murdoch and Hall's romance took some time 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 pair were destined for each other. She said Murdoch needed extra encouragement to date Hall. Penny added:

"I just knew they were made for each other, but Rupert’s so shy, I had to give him a little push because he thought she was too famous for him!"

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


Murdoch was not the only man Hall loved.

"Rupert's completely in love," said author William Shawcross, one of the Murdoch's oldest friends. Another stated that the couple's marriage worked out well since Hall isn't much of a "First Lady" figure, which Murdoch preferred.


Hall is an independent lady who is not easily swayed by riches. According to The Washington Post, Hall said she does not want to be "bossed around" because she has her own money.

Murdoch was not the only man Hall loved. The gorgeous model 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 the iconic rock band Rolling Stone. Their relationship lasted for 22 years.

They tied the knot in 1990 in Bali, Indonesia, but they split after Jagger had a child with another woman. After reaching an agreement, they were reportedly awarded an "annulment."


When Hall married Murdoch, Jagger was allegedly unhappy with their union. The rockstar reportedly disliked the idea of Murdoch becoming part of his extended family.

Amid Jagger disliking Hall's marriage to Murdoch, his children - Georgia May, Elizabeth, James, and Gabriel, all attended the wedding ceremony.
