Jerry Hall has filed for divorce from billionaire businessman Rupert Murdoch in a California court USA.

The model and actress requested spousal assistance, stating that this may alter if Mr. Murdoch's fortune is revealed. Mr. Murdoch, 91, will be divorcing for the fourth time.

Ms. Hall, 66, was once engaged to Mick Jagger of the Rolling Stones. According to US media, the divorce surprised people close to the family.

Mr. Murdoch, whose News Corporation empire includes Fox News and the Wall Street Journal in the United States,

as well as The Sun and The Times in the United Kingdom, was previously said to be dedicating more time to his new wife.

At the time of his marriage, the billionaire said on Twitter that he was "the luckiest AND happiest guy in the world," and that he would no longer post on the platform.

In 2018, his eldest son Lachlan was named as his successor as CEO of Fox Corporation. Mr Murdoch also sold the majority of his stake in 21st Century Fox to the Walt Disney Company.

According to the New York Times, Ms. Hall was observed "doting on" her spouse at his 90th birthday celebration last year.

Patricia Booker, an Australian flight attendant, and Mr. Murdoch were previously wed from 1956 until 1967;

Anna Mann, a Scottish-born journalist, from 1967 to 1999; and Wendi Deng, a Chinese-born entrepreneur, from 1999 to 2014. The couple has ten kids total over their marriages.
