Secondo quanto riferito, il magnate dei media Rupert Murdoch e la sua quarta moglie, la modella Jerry Hall, hanno deciso di dimettersi dopo sei anni di matrimonio.
Il New York Times ha confermato la notizia di due persone che hanno familiarità con la situazione. Le fonti si sono rifiutate di identificarsi in questo momento e i portavoce delle due parti non hanno ancora rilasciato una dichiarazione sulla presunta scissione. Secondo quanto riferito, alcune persone vicine al titano dei media sono “sorprese” nell’apprendere la notizia della presunta separazione.
This alleged divorce may make an impact in the business world, but according to reports, it will not shake Murdoch's media empire — at least when it comes to ownership.
Rupert Murdoch and Jerry Hall's divorce may 'reverberate throughout his business empire'
While Rupert Murdoch and Jerry Hall are reportedly divorcing, The New York Times, the outlet that first broke the news, asserted that it's unlikely that anything will change in the ownership of his many businesses, which include Fox News, The Wall Street Journal, as well as The Sun in Britain and Sky News in Australia. However, the newspaper claims that it may "reverberate" through the companies in a way that is yet to be seen.
The alleged divorce would be Murdoch's fourth and Hall's second. The model was notably married to Rolling Stone frontman Mick Jagger for more than two decades, and the two share four children. They were granted an annulment in 1999, with Hall reportedly receiving $40 million in a settlement, per The Washington Post.
However, Jagger may welcome this divorce news with open arms, as the Daily Mail previously reported that the rockstar was "seething" over Hall's second marriage and that he'd taken issue with being distantly related to the media titan. "This means that Rupert Murdoch is going to become a part of his extended family, and Mick has a real problem with that," the insider claimed.
