Rupert Murdoch & Jerry Hall Divorced
Media tycoon Rupert Murdoch and wife Jerry Hall, a former supermodel, have split up after six years of marriage.
Murdoch's attorney Robert S. Cohen and Hall's attorney Judith L. Poller confirmed to USA TODAY Thursday that the couple finalized their divorce.
"They remain good friends and wish each other the best for the future," the attorneys said in an emailed statement.
Murdoch, 91, and Hall, 66, married in March 2016 at Princess Diana's family townhouse Spencer House, an 18th-century palace in central London.
Australian-born Murdoch and Texas-native Hall began dating after they were introduced by one of Murdoch’s sisters and his niece in Australia.
The couple went public with their relationship in October 2015, appearing together at the Rugby World Cup final in London.
The two became engaged in January 2016 while attending the Golden Globes awards in Los Angeles, The Times of London.
