It appears that Rupert Murdoch is recovering from his 2013 divorce with the help of Mick Jagger's ex-wife, Jerry Hall.
From Vanity Fair:
The relationship status update arrives via The Telegraph, which informs us that the 84-year-old billionaire was introduced to the 59-year-old “in Australia by one of his sisters and a niece.” A family friend cautiously adds, “It’s all very new. They are really enjoying each other's company very much. . . He is very fond of her. There is no question that they are a couple.”
According to the source, the two have spent time together in California and New York City, where the pair reportedly saw the popular Broadway musical Hamilton. If all goes as planned, Murdoch and Hall will reportedly make a public appearance together at the Rugby World Cup final at Twickenham on Saturday.
You may recall that Murdoch filed for divorce from his last wife, in 2013, after she was romantically linked to Tony Blair. Later that year, his massage therapist was reported to be his (pardon the pun) new squeeze.
But Jerry Hall?

Ain’t it always?
At this rate, by the time Rupert’s 120, he’ll actually be dating women his own age.
