Rupert Murdoch announces engagement to Jerry Hall

Former model Hall was previously married to The Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger

Rupert Murdoch announced his engagement to former supermodel Jerry Hall in an advertisement published on Tuesday in the Times newspaper, which is owned by Murdoch's News Corp.

The advertisement, published in the classifieds section of the newspaper, read: "Mr Rupert Murdoch, father of Prudence, Elisabeth, Lachlan, James, Grace and Chloe Murdoch, and Miss Jerry Hall, mother of Elizabeth, James, Georgia and Gabriel Jagger, are delighted to announce their engagement."

A spokesman for the Murdoch family was quoted in the Times as saying: “They have loved these past months together, are thrilled to be getting married and excited about their future.”

Hall, a former supermodel and actress, was married to The Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger for more than 20 years, although in divorce proceedings, Jagger claimed that they were never legally married.


Murdoch, executive chairman of News Corp and 21st Century Fox, has been married three times previously. His last marriage was to Wendi Deng, a former executive at Murdoch-owned Star TV, who he divorced in 2013 after 14 years of marriage.
