Media Mogul Rupert Murdoch to Marry Famous Texan Model Jerry Hall
Media mogul Rupert Murdoch has announced his engagement to Texas girl, Jerry Hall.
In a press release originally printed in his own publication, the two announced that they became engaged after the Golden Globes this past Sunday, January 10, 2016, following a months-long courtship.
Jerry Hall was one of the most photographed models in the 1970s and had a long relationship with Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger.
Murdoch has been married three times previously, with his last marriage to Wendy Deng ending in divorce in 2013. He has six children from his previous marriages Hall has four children from her relationship with Jagger.
Hall and Jagger were married in a Hindu ceremony in Bali, Indonesia in 1990, but when the two divorced in 1999, a British court ruled the marriage invalid.
Murdoch is 84-years-old and Hall is 59-years-old. The Australian native and the Gonzales, Texas native were introduced last summer by Murdoch’s sister and niece.
So chalk it up to a Texas gal marrying well. Very well. Her Mom might well have taught her the old adage: ‘It’s as easy to fall in love with a rich man than a poor man.’
Murdoch is reportedly worth $11.3 billion and comes in at no. 35 on the Forbes list of the wealthiest people in the world. We wonder what that prenup will look like.
