The mystery of the £14 billion tycoon Rupert Murdoch’s love affair with his fourth wife Jerry Hall


Dominating his £14.5 billion empire with power similar to that of Henry VIII, the similarities between Rupert Murdoch and King Coppernose don’t stop there.

Following the breakdown of his fourth marriage to former supermodel Jerry Hall, the Australian media giant is quickly staking out a list of ex-wives that only the Tudor monarch can attest.

But while Henry hatched, combined and dispatched his spouses, eliminating the need for huge settlements, ‘Koala Kong’ was once again in line with a multi-million pound bounty.

However, the multibillion-dollar question many, including veteran divorce lawyers, ask is what caused the breakdown of a seemingly happy marriage.

“What’s really going on here is a big question,” lawyer Vanessa Lloyd-Platt told the Mirror. “What happened to make it go from love to discontent and disillusionment.”

“It’s a big mystery. There’s no one to speak for them at the moment.

She continued: “The question that remains is why now? What’s interesting is that if Jerry decided to end the marriage, why would she choose it now?

“She married an 84-year-old, you would think that if you married an 84-year-old, you’d stay there. Because he’s 91, with the greatest respect, he’s gone. stay here longer.

“So you thought she’d wait. Does that mean there’s no point in her waiting because the prenup is so difficult?”

Whatever the cause of the demise, there’s now a lot of speculation about how the six-year merger will be resolved and the couple’s £270m estate empire split as how.

His wives have all signed pre- and post-marriage agreements in the past, and there is little doubt that his marriage to Hall, 65, will make any difference.

Experts believe the thought that the Texan supermodel – worth £10m reported in March 2016 when they married – will get her VIP lifestyle done is premature.

While all three of his previous marriages produced children, the elderly couple had no children.

Ms. Lloyd-Platt said: “One of the key aspects of this before people started getting so excited that she was going to come out with billions of dollars was the fact that it was a six-year marriage that she was married to. no children. That’s very important.”

Rupert had been married three times before, with the late Patricia Booker as his first wife



His second wife is Anna Mann (nee Torv).

“So even without the subscription money, she wouldn’t end up being one of these people like his second wife, Anna Mann, to whom he’s been married for 32 years, would come out. with 1.3 billion pounds. It’s pie in the sky.”

However, the divorce attorney said she would be “too shocked” if Murdoch and Hall didn’t have a “close” agreement before saying “I do”.

She told the Mirror: “I think once you’ve gone through three expensive divorces, getting a nice paycheck isn’t what Rupert is going to do.

“He will be very aware that when she enters the marriage, she already has her own fortune. But if he is the wisest businessman ever – perhaps not so wise in his affairs. marriage – he will tie all his empire into one tight trust.

“There’s no way a man like this has no future. I could be wrong. Love may have conquered all, but I doubt he has. He’s a very understanding man. know.”

Legal experts say Murdoch’s children will urge him to have a ‘prenup protection’ agreement to protect his worldwide assets.

Famously, the family shares in the companies he founded – The Sun and The Times newspaper in the UK, Fox News and The Wall Street Journal in the US and newspapers in his native Australia – are in a fund. Trusts are strictly regulated.

Murdoch divided voting rights among his 4 oldest children – Lachlan, Elisabeth, James and Prudence – and arranged them so that he never got voted out.

Rather than seeing his multibillion-pound fortune at risk, legal experts believe the severance would, at most, only see the £270m fortune empire the couple built together. in the UK and the US competed with each other.

In 2019 they bought a £11.25 million property in Georgia near Henley-on-Thames in Oxfordshire. A year later, they captured Great Tew Manor – a ‘top man’ in the Cotswolds, which was earmarked for a £30 million restoration project.

Just six months ago, the couple spent £228 million on a 340,000-acre cattle ranch near Yellowstone Park in the US begging more questions about what had happened since Christmas. .

The solicitors believed that Murdoch would likely put terms to “barrier” any money he made before marrying Hall and he then stormed into their home.

However, although he is 91 years old and still has a hearing loss, those who know the businessman say that his legendary work ethic has not been lost since his marriage six years ago.

Although at the time of his marriage, he took to Twitter to vow to stop posting on the platform while calling himself “the luckiest and happiest man in the world”, any hope he he would be a husband at home is all a fantasy.

Hall’s marriage to Murdoch was her first after being previously in a long-term relationship with Rolling Stones rocker Mick Jagger.

Together, she and the singer – who were married in Bali but later ruled not legally binding – have four children together, however, the two have never been married during their relationship. Their relationship lasted 22 years.

Her other conquests are said to include cricketers Shane Warne, Bryan Ferry and Andy Warhol.

The 6-foot-tall ex-model – who doesn’t even have higher heels than her ex-fiancé – is said to have fallen in love with Murdoch after telling friends she liked a man with strong opinions.

They met in Australia in the summer of 2015 when Hall toured with The Graduate, in which she played Mrs. Robinson.

They were introduced by Penny Fowler, granddaughter of Janet Calvert-Jones, Murdoch’s older sister, and “got in right away”.

After a whirlwind romance, they married at St Bride’s church in central London, after which they had photos taken by all of their children collected during their marriage.

Fathers of six are no strangers to divorce trials.

Murdoch was first married to Patricia Booker in 1956. A former flight attendant in Melbourne, they had a daughter, Prudence, born two years after Hall, but the marriage failed, and they divorced in 1967. .

A few months later, he married Scottish-born journalist Mann, who used to work for his newspaper The Daily Telegraph in Sydney.

While Murdoch continued to build his global empire, they had 3 children – Elisabeth, Lachlan and James – before their marriage fell apart.

The divorce was one of the most expensive in history, costing the tycoon £1.1 billion.

However, not stopping after his second divorce, he returned to the marriage, tightening his relationship with Wendi Deng just 17 days after the settlement agreement with his ex-wife Anna.

But it won’t be luck a third time, and they’ve gone their separate ways as Deng said in court papers filed in New York in 2013, “the relationship has broken down irreparably. mounted in the past six months”.

The allegations center on reports in the US that Murdoch found a note believed to be handwritten by Deng.

According to the American magazine Vanity Fair, it reads: “Whatever the reason why I miss Tony so much. Because he’s so charming and his clothes are too good.

“He’s got a nice body and a nice butt… And he’s tall and thin and has nice skin.

“Purple the blue eyes that I love. Love his eyes. Also, I love his power on stage… and what else and what else and what else…”

The letter, discovered at Murdoch’s home in California, is believed to be in Deng’s handwriting.

Sources said the billionaire became suspicious before asking an employee if the former Labor leader had visited his home when he was not there.

Mr Blair, who has been married to lawyer Cherie since 1980, is said to have stayed at home.

According to US reports at the time, Deng told Murdoch, owner of the Sun and The Times, she was visiting their California ranch with friends.

At the time of their divorce, they also had an impressive portfolio of assets.

They used to live in a £30 million Fifth Avenue penthouse previously owned by Laurance S. Rockefeller but also have an impressive portfolio of homes in Los Angeles, London, Canberra, Australia, Carmel, California. and Center Island, New York.

Representatives for Mr Murdoch and Ms. Hall were not available for comment.
