Jerry Hall, a former top model, and media tycoon Rupert Murdoch are reportedly getting a divorce. For its article on the impending split, the New York Times cited two unnamed sources. No confirmation of the news has been received from either Hall or Murdoch.
Murdoch, who was born in Australia, had previously married three times. In 1990, Hall wed Mick Jagger; however, the union was dissolved nine years later. The Times reported that some sources close to Murdoch were “surprised” to learn of the divorce.
