The couple between one of the most powerful businessmen of the last 50 years and one of the most influential models of the end of the 20th century took everyone by surprise.

The billionaire and Hall, 65, who was in a relationship for more than 20 years with the Rolling Stones vocalist Mick Jagger (with whom he had four children), married in March 2016 in London. Then Murdoch wrote on Twitter that he was “the luckiest and happiest man in the world.”

After the wedding celebrations, Hall shared a photo of the then-newlyweds posing with all of their children, writing: “My lovely family!”

Murdoch has been married before. His first wife was Patricia Bookeran Australian stewardess, whom he divorced in the mid-1960s, and with whom he had a daughter before marrying anna torve, a journalist, whom he divorced in 1999 after more than three decades of marriage, and with whom he shares three children. For ten years, that divorce was considered the most expensive in history, since she took a fortune of 1,700 million dollars. Murdoch later married Wendi Deng, an entrepreneur and investor of Chinese origin with whom he married 17 days after the divorce with Torv. With her he had two other daughters. His separation from the businesswoman took place in 2013.

For his part, the most famous relationship of Hall, who built his career in the world of fashion from a very young age, was with Mick jagger, one of the most influential rockers in history. He accompanied the Rolling Stones singer for 22 years and they both had four children.

Rock, infidelities and separation

Jerry Hall represented one more case of the American lower-middle class girl who knew how to make a place for herself in fame thanks to her natural beauty. Daughter of a bookstore clerk and a truck driver, the Texas native quickly became a global rock muse.

The relationship with Mick Jagger lasted 22 years, in which Hall acknowledged having suffered from her husband’s constant adventures with other girls. “I was able to get Mick out of his heroin addiction, but I couldn’t get rid of his addiction to women in all those years together”, declared the now ex-model.

With Jagger he shares four children: Elizabeth (38), James (36), Georgia May (30) and Gabriel (24); however, the two never officially married during their 22-year relationship.

Having lived in the 1780 mansion called Downe Housein London, the couple separated in 1999. According to Hall herself, the constant infidelities of her then husband were the main reason for the breakup.

Jagger and Hall had held a Hindu wedding ceremony on November 21, 1990, in Bali, Indonesia, but it was later declared invalid by the High Court of England and Wales in 1999, ruling that the “marriage” was not legal under the laws of Indonesia or England.

When Hall met Murdoch

Since her split with Jagger, Hall was not known to have a partner for more than a decade. In fact, she only showed up at events of the jet set English and made a few small appearances on British television and film.

The beginning of the relationship between Murdoch and Hall could mean a failure for tabloids around the world. No television program or the specialized written press was able to notice the link between the media mogul and the muse of one of the greatest rock stars in history.

The news appeared just two days before the first public appearance of both. The Daily Mail launched the rumor and the two protagonists were in charge of confirming it with their joint presence in the final of the Rugby World Cup between Australia and New Zealand, in one of the stands of the Twickenham stadium.

“Everything is very new and they are enjoying the company a lot. She makes him laugh a lot,” a source close to the couple told that British newspaper.

In January 2016, they attended the Golden Globes in Los Angeles, days before Murdoch announced that the couple was engaged. Murdoch asked her to marry a 10-carat marquise-cut diamond engagement ring said to be worth up to $3.5 million.

In December 2021 Hall and Murdoch purchased a $200 million cattle ranch, called Beaverhead, in Montana, previously owned by oil baron Fred Koch and his sons. It was the most expensive ranch sale in Montana history.

Although details of the couple’s divorce settlement or paperwork have yet to be made public, this split is likely to be one of the most expensive in history, even surpassing Murdoch’s previous divorce with Torv.
