Multi-billionaire media mogul Rupert Murdoch is getting divorced – after just six years.
Murdoch, the owner of Silver Screen Beat, The Times newspapers, and Talk TV in Britain, married Jerry Hall, a former supermodel partner, in 2016.
It’s the fourth marriage that failed for the 91-year old.

According to The Mirror, Bryce Tom, a spokesman for Murdoch, declined to comment on the reports while Ms Hall’s agent failed to respond to enquiries.
The owner of American outlets Fox News and the Wall Street Journal is valued at around £14.5 billion, has six children, including daughter Prudence MacLeod – who he had with first wife Patricia Booker – and daughter Elisabeth and sons Lachlan and James with his second wife Anna Mann.
He also has two daughters, Grace and Chloe, from his third wife Wendi.
The details of Murdoch’s and Hall’s divorce proceedings are still unknown. However, they do not have any children and it is not known if there was a prenuptial agreement.
Murdoch took to Twitter to celebrate their London wedding “I am the luckiest and happiest man in the world.”
It was the same year that Murdoch put in an £11.7 billion bid to by TV company Sky.
Murdoch’s newest venture in UK media was to create TalkTV earlier in the year.
Piers Morgan was his big-name draw. But things didn’t go according to plan. Stanley Johnson left the set during a row with Boris Johnson, Stanley’s Prime Minister, and walked out.
Piers Morgan’s Uncensored TalkTV on Tuesday (June 14) featured the PM’s father, but the interview went sour.
Stanley was able to speak with Boris, the former Good Morning Britain host, about his PM son. But Stanley ended up naming Piers a. “cheater”And claiming that the broadcaster had “lured him in”.
Stanley was defending his son’s actions in the Partygate scandal, and told Piers that he was certain Boris would still hold the position of Prime Minister in two more years.
