Wow! Former supermodel Jerry Hall has snagged herself one of the richest men in the world! Mick Jagger’s ex has become engaged to none other than Australian media tycoon Rupert Murdoch after only four months of dating. Congrats you two!
Jerry Hall sure knows how to pick her men, because she’s landed Rupert Murdoch — one of the richest and most powerful men in the world — as her future husband! The 59-year-old model has only been dating the 84-year-old tycoon for four months but he’s obviously head over heels about the leggy Texan, who was Mick Jagger‘s longtime partner and mother to four of his children.
The couple made their announcement the old-fashioned way, by announcing it in a newspaper’s Births, Marriages and Deaths page. Except in this case, Rupert actually owns the paper The Times, of London, which is part of his massive News Corp. media empire. The classified ad 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.” How traditional!
The couple became betrothed while in Los Angeles to attend the Golden Globes on Jan. 10. They happily posed for red carpet photos and were seated among the A-list stars for the big event, with Jerry shoulder to shoulder with Matt Damon. The two started dating in Oct. 2015 after being introduced by Rupert’s sister, and obviously he knows he’s found the one in the gorgeous blonde.
Rupert and his family are currently ranked as the 35th on Forbes magazine’s ‘Most Powerful” list, as the Murdoch family controls 120 newspapers in five countries; a large cable TV network comprised of the Fox channels, book publisher HarperCollins, and numerous broadcasting and satellite interests.
