Media tycoon Rupert Murdoch and former supermodel Jerry Hall are to divorce, it is being reported tonight.

The end of the couple’s six-year marriage will be the 91-year-old’s fourth to be dissolved.

It was Hall’s first marriage after previously being in a long-term relationship with Rolling Stones rocker Mick Jagger.

Together she and the singer share four children, however, the two never wed during their 22-year relationship.

Bryce Tom, a spokesman for Murdoch, declined to comment on the reports while Ms Hall’s agent failed to respond to enquiries.

Murdoch, who is worth £14.5 billion, has six children.

They include daughter Prudence MacLeod with his first wife Patricia Booker, daughter Elisabeth and sons Lachlan and James with his second souse Anna Mann, and daughter Chloe and Grace, who he shares with his third wife Wendi Deng.

Details of Murdoch and Hall’s divorce are not yet known, however, the couple does not share any children together.

It is unclear, what if any, prenuptial agreement was signed before they tied the knot.

Murdoch and Hall, 65, wed in March 2016 in central London.

The billionaire marked the occasion by announcing on Twitter he would stop posting on the platform, calling himself “the luckiest and happiest man in the world.”

Murdoch owns The Sun and The Times newspapers in the UK, Fox News and The Wall Street Journal in the States and papers in his native Australia.

The Murdoch family’s shares in the companies he founded reside in a managed trust.

Murdoch splits voting rights over that trust with his four oldest children – Lachlan, Elisabeth, James and Prudence – and has arranged them so that he can never be outvoted.
