What, exactly, could be in it for them? He is very fond of her. There is no question that they are a couple'. A spokesman said: "They have loved these past months together". It's not even especially hip. Murdoch's discovery of his wife's crush was said to be the "final straw" that prompted him to file for divorce after14 years of marriage. "There's nothing nicer than someone who is loving and caring".
"Getting married again is a nice idea".
People are living longer, and married people even more so.
"Lachlan and James Murdoch, two of Murdoch's adult sons, have taken on more prominent roles at the two companies, part of a gradual transfer of power from Murdoch", the FT added. Hall, a former fashion model and cover girl, was previously in a relationship with British rock legend Sir Mick Jagger. This is the fourth marriage for 84-year-old Murdoch, who has six children.
Though Hall has a long list of famous exes, this will be her first marriage.
That's not to say we can't assume there may be at least a little retribution at play here. Earlier, Murdoch and Wendi Deng split but the 2013 divorce settlement reportedly cost about $100 million. They have only been dating since the summer, when they were introduced by Murdoch's relatives in his native Australia.
On the romantic side, Hall is best known for having dated Mick Jagger from 1977 to 1999. Jerry is 59 and got four children from the previous marriage.
That's likely to end now. Hall was married to Jagger for greater than 20 years.
Hall accompanied Murdoch to the Golden Globes on Sunday night, the pair holding hands throughout the evening as they sat on the same table as The Martian star and Golden Globe victor Matt Damon and fellow actor Morgan Freeman.
Murdoch, executive chairman of News Corp and 21st Century Fox, has been married three times earlier.
