Jerry Hall Files For Divorce From Rupert Murdoch

Jerry Hall has officially filed for divorce from billionaire husband Rupert Murdoch, six years after the couple married.

The 65-year-old model and actor filed a petition in California’s Superior Court on Friday, citing “irreconcilable differences” as legal grounds for divorce.

In her petition, she also asked for unspecified support for the marriage of 91-year-old media mogul Murdoch and wants him to pay for her legal fees.

She said in the petition that she “is not aware of the full nature and extent of all (Murdoch’s) assets and debts, and will amend this petition when the information is obtained.”

Hall’s attorney, Ronald Brot, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Murdoch and Hall were married in March 2016 in a quiet ceremony at Spencer House in central London. It was Murdoch’s fourth marriage and Hall’s second.

The Fox chairman controls News Corp and Fox Corp through a Nevada family trust that owns approximately 40 percent of each company’s stock.
