Who are Rupert Murdoch's ex-wives?

The news that media mogul Rupert Murdoch (91) and 25-year-younger actress Jerry Hall are divorcing after six years of marriage surprised the public, and many are wondering what led to the end of their love affair. Of course, the fact that Rupert has a fortune of 14 billion pounds was always mentioned and the critics on duty said that this was exactly what enchanted Jerry, but the couple seemed to get along really well.

That something was going on between the spouses was hinted at earlier this week when Jerry didn’t show up at Rupert’s annual, summer party at the Serpentine Gallery in London. Part of the guests asked where the actress was, and they only got a simple answer that she went to Los Angeles.

'For a 91-year-old man, Rupert is in great shape, but even he can't stop his age. He wears soft shoes and does not like to stand for long and is obsessed with his health. In addition, his hearing is getting weaker ', said a friend of the couple.‘Jerry is much younger and she still loves going to parties and the beach and she wants to have fun. It’s not fun to be a media geisha or a corporate wife. Endlessly circling the world on a company plane to be with Rupert for some corporate entertainment no longer attracts her, ' he added. She also says that she was bored with the media mogul who, despite the huge billions, is still a workaholic, and the crisis in their marriage started with a lockdown due to the coronavirus.'She seemed to be losing her identity while signing emails with 'Jerry Murdoch,' ' the source said. Tensions between the spouses also surfaced when Jerry revived her modeling career last year and filmed a campaign for the Yves Saint Laurent brand.

And this is the famous billionaire's fourth marital breakdown. He had no children with Jerry, which is not surprising, but otherwise, he has six. From his third wife, 37-year-old entrepreneur Wendi Deng, he divorced in 2013 and they had a prenuptial agreement. For the marriage with Jerry, it is not known if the couple signed anything before uttering the fateful ‘yes’.

All of Rupert's wives

Patricia Booker

Early in his career, the media mogul married Patricia Booker in 1956. She is known to have been a flight attendant at the time she met Rupert and she is the mother of his first child, daughter Patricia. The couple divorced in 1967.

Anna Maria Torv

Shortly after the divorce, Rupert became close with journalist Anna Maria Torv, with whom he had the longest marriage, from 1967 to 1999. The couple had three children together, and they met at a time when she worked for The Daily Telegraph. When they divorced, it was rumored that the lady became richer by $ 1.7 billion. After the divorce, Anna married William Mann in 1999, and they remained together until his death in 2017. Two years later, she married Ashton dePeyster and she is now 77 years old.

Wendi Deng

Three weeks after his divorce from Anna was finalized, Murdoch got married for the third time in 1999. Today 53-year-old Wendi has two daughters. The couple divorced in 2013, but they seem to have remained on good terms. 'He's a good father. We decided together what is best for our children, to learn Chinese, to be good at math, how much they will use social networks and other things, ' Deng said in a 2016 interview.

Jerry’s marriage to Rupert was her first, and she has a 22-year relationship behind her with Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger with whom she has four children. Her modeling career began in the 70s, and in the 80s she tried her hand at acting.
