Media mogul Rupert Murdoch has gotten engaged to former model Jerry Hall. Neither Murdoch nor Hall are exactly in the first flush of youth. Murdoch is 84-years-old and Ms Hall, who was Rolling Stone Mick Jagger’s partner for many years, is 59-years-old. Hall and Murdoch were introduced to each other last summer and are set to marry after a four-month whirlwind romance. Given Murdoch’s advanced years you would think that people would be delighted to see the billionaire enjoy a little happiness in his final years but it seems that not everyone is so magnanimous towards Mr Murdoch.
According to the Telegraph Mr Murdoch announced that he and Hall are to marry by placing an advertisement in the Times, a newspaper conveniently owned by Murdoch. In the advertisement in the Births, Deaths and Marriages section Murdoch said the couple were “delighted” to announce their forthcoming nuptials.
