Rupert Murdoch & partner of six years Jerry Hall to get divorce

Mumbai: Media mogul Rupert Murdoch and his wife of six years former actress-supermodel Jerry Hall are getting a divorce.

As per reports, the separation is unlikely to alter the ownership structure of businesses Murdoch holds a stake in, which include parent company Fox News and The Wall Street Journal. Murdoch is worth an estimated $17 billion, according to Forbes.

Murdoch, 91, married Hall, 65, in March 2016 in London. This is his fourth divorce.

Murdoch maintained a powerful role in politics and the media after selling the majority of his corporation to Disney for $71 billion in 2019. The two men's relationship further suffered after Murdoch's Fox News predicted that Trump lost Arizona, an election call that came before other news organisations followed. He was a frequent unofficial adviser to the former president Donald Trump, though he distanced himself from Trump leading up to the 2020 election.
