Jerry Hall & Rupert Murdoch married in a civil ceremony in London today


Breaking news: Jerry Hall marries Aussie gremlin!

I thought this would be happening tomorrow, but it happened today! Our new favorite couple, Jerry Hall and Rupert Murdoch, have just gotten married. They were only engaged for about seven weeks, and they’ve barely been together (in total) for about five or six months. These are photos of Rupert and Jerry (JUPERT!!!!!!!) posing outside of Spencer House in St. James, London. The bride is 59 years old and the groom is 84, soon to be 85 next week.

I personally think they both look really nice and low-key for their (first) big day. I’m glad they didn’t make it into some huge extravaganza, because… well, this is Rupert’s fourth time down the aisle, you know? That being said, they will be doing a bigger church service tomorrow at St. Bride’s Church on Fleet Street (Fleet Street is the street where all of the big British newspapers reside). I’m assuming this was the civil service, and tomorrow Jerry will be wearing a white or off-white gown or dress or something. Reportedly, all six of Jerry and Rupert’s daughters will be bridesmaids. Rupert is particularly keen to include all of his kids in this wedding because he’s constantly assessing which child should take over which part of his empire.

The groom wore a lovely blue suit and managed to break into a smile in some photos. The bride wore Roger Vivier flats, black tights (which she apparently bought an hour before the ceremony), what looks like a simple navy dress or skirt and an off-white trench coat (some are describing the coat as light blue). Call me crazy, but I think Jerry makes a very attractive bride. She looks really happy! Also: she’s really showing off her marquis-cut engagement ring.

  2. powerada says:

    what brand are the shoes she’s wearing? i’ve seen them around but can’t figure out what they are. thanks!

  3. Cynthia says:

    Jerry is such a stunning lady, get your money girl!

    • Mrs. Wellen Melon says:

      Of all the ways to earn money, Jerry Hall didn’t pick the easiest this time.

    • T.Fanty says:

      But oh my god, she needs to update her hairstyle.

    • Ravensdaughter says:

      Yes, very valuable arm candy. In exchange, I am sure she’ll inherit a nice, tidy sum and unlike Anna Nicole Smith, Jerry’s piece of the pie will be tamper free!

    • raincoaster says:

      She really seems happy, though. And she’s got her own money, she doesn’t have to settle if she doesn’t want to.

  4. Katie says:

    Well… least she doesn’t have to worry about HIM womanizing. And she’s a whole lot richer. I guess she played her cards right. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$-ching!

  5. Eleonor says:

    Michael K. nailed it with “the glamourous wife of a real life Bond villain”.
    Congrats to them !

  6. Bridget says:

    Well, she’s not making the same mistake twice.

  7. Beatrice says:

    Congrats! They look very happy. So glad Jerry landed a billionaire. She deserves happiness and extreme wealth after putting up with the philandering Mick all those years, only for him to deny they were married.

  8. Rainbow says:

    84 and rich?? I am sure she married him for his kind heart and lovely smile.

    • Kelly says:

      He has a heart?

    • Gorgonia says:

      no, she married him ’cause he’s handsome and hot!

    • PennyLane says:

      I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that Rupert Murdoch can be very, very charming when he wants to be…he’s an intelligent man and he has a history of getting what he wants.

      Who knows what’s going to happen in the long term, but he and his new wife look genuinely happy in these photos. No shade here. Mazel Tov.

  9. QQ says:

    I hope she secured that Money Cause Its hard outchea when women are marrying Creepy Turtles for Retirement Money

  10. What was that says:

    It was reported the other day that Murdoch,whose newspapers are anti the European Union and the referendum that his reason is influence..and thus more money and power..
    When I go to Brussels ,they ignore me but if I walk into 10 Downing St they listen..was the line..
    That a man like that can influence a Government ..or try sickening…
    He won’t be the first or last but the man is loathsome ….

  11. thaisajs says:

    Good for her. She needed a retirement plan and there he is.

    Miranda Kerr should take Jerry out for dinner and take notes.

    • spidey says:

      Think the retirement plan is sitting on her ring finger £(pounds)2.8m is a good start.

      • Minxx says:

        Yeah.. I hate the marquis-cut but in this size it suddenly looks so much better 🙂
        and look at her wearing sensible flats for a change – she knows how to play the old gremlin. Good for her!

  12. bella says:

    I try to imagine how anyone could marry simply for money.
    Are they that morally corrupt?
    Do they simply have practical minds and strong stomachs?
    I don’t know…
    Could they truly be in love?

    Anyone else see Patricia Arquette in Jerry in some of these pics?

  13. minx says:

    Eeww, and not just because of his looks and age.
    Fox News.

  14. Katie says:

    Kaiser: Call me crazy, but I think Jerry makes a very attractive bride. She looks really happy!

    Of course she is happy Kaiser! He’s a billionaire and 84. How long will she have to wait for all that hefty dough?

    • Rainbow says:

      My great grandmother died at 100, imagine living with this man for 15-20 years lol

      • Sea Dragon says:

        Eh. Who knows what her sex drive is like and they have all the money in the world to cover every health issue of his with 24/7 care. She’ll never have to lift a finger, her new connections will provide access to the most elite of the 1%, anything and everything is at her beck and call and that’s just to start.
        I mean, unless he’s a viagra taking, demanding man behind closed doors, they’re probably two very worldly, interesting people that enjoy each other’s company a great deal. Not so bad.

      • Minxx says:

        With his family’s longevity, at least 10 years, if not more.

  15. cannibell says:

    “They were only engaged for about seven weeks, and they’ve barely been together (in total) for about five or six months.”

    When one of you is 84, that’s a pretty long courtship and engagement.

  16. Lurker says:

    Supermodel/Aging Actress-Musician retirement plan, class of 2016.

    She joins Elle Macpherson, Salma Hayek, Stephanie Seymour, Elisabetta Gregoraci, Jami Gertz, Holly Vance, even Janet Jackson has one. Mariah Carey will have one soon, apparently.

    Naomi Campbell, Bethenny Frankel and Elin Nordegren are working on theirs.

    Elizabeth Hurley tried twice with Steve Bing and Arun Nayar.

    Miranda Kerr, you need to call a meeting with these ladies.

    • Lynn says:

      That reminds me of what Tyra Banks said when she decided to have her own talk show and America’s Top Model. To paraphrase, she wanted to secure HER OWN MONEY, so she wouldn’t have to be like one of those retiring models who feel they need to marry an 80 year old millionaire- Good for her!

  17. Congratulations!

  18. Kelly says:

    Ah, young love…

  19. Beckysuz says:

    Barf. That is all

  20. OTHER RENEE says:

    Mick Jagger and Rupert Murdock. Except for being rich, I think we can say Jerry isn’t attracted to a certain type.

  21. Midnightatthemuseum says:

    She’s clearly on her way to the supermarket so at least the whole day won’t have been wasted.

  22. Brooke says:

    Murdoch’d not an Aussie, he renounced his Austrlian citizenship he is not an Australian citizen anymore, he became an American citizen

  23. spidey says:

    Bryan Ferry >Mick Jagger>that? Downhill all the way to the bank.

  24. love scandal says:

    I’m all for the saying about it being preferable to be an old man’s darling.
    But seriously how many does Jerry have to knock back before letting Murdoch get on and get in. Eyak.

  25. Anoneemouse says:

    Uh….congrats on your new ring?

  26. DiamondGirl says:

    At least he’s not marrying a 30-year-old. I don’t have a problem with these two. She started working as a teen, so hey, enjoy your 60s!

  27. Samihami says:

    If she is happy and he is happy then what else matters?

  28. Citresse says:

    Yes, I wish them happiness.
    I’ve noticed since Hall hooked up with Murdoch, Hall is always photographed wearing flats (shoes). I guess she sees it as a fair trade off all considering.

    • Minxx says:

      Exactly! Besides, at her age, it could actually be more comfortable.. So, two birds with one stone 😉

  29. Adele Dazeem says:

    I think they look genuinely happy. Congratulations.

  30. Babsie says:

    Good for them. Whatever the reason for the marriage, they look happy. Not going to judge. Nor will I throw shade at the man for his politics.

  31. JRenee says:

    That stone is the size of a small egg, wow. .

  32. love scandal says:

    I should think so irenee, imagine what she’s had to do for it? Lol.
    Well earned I’d say.
    Do you think she tells him she only likes to indulge with a blind fold on?

  33. Jackson says:

    Well, he has already started to dictate to her – actually, even before the wedding. She was due to star in an Australian play “The Graduate”. As soon as he got wind of it, he put a stop to it. He didn’t want his wife naked in public, apparently. Won’t be long before she is wearing a wig and say “oye”.

  34. What's inside says:

    Hey, she’s not a spring chicken either and I am sure it was prudent to hurry things along just in case he either keels over or she makes a mistake that turns him off. Anyway, good for her. To quote The Eagles, “A rich old man, and she won’t have to worry, she’ll dress up all in lace and go in style.” She is from Texas after all where they learn that from the cradle.

  35. Rae says:

    I wish them the best.

    Go Jerry!

  36. Lotta says:

    If you have to compare I actually think that Murdoch is more attractive then Mick Jagger is in his current state.

  37. LAK says:

    I’m really enjoying how happy everyone looks at saturday’s ceremony. Particularly Murdoch’s kids. They were not happy about Wendy, and rumour has it, barely tolerated her. Then again, she had usurped their mother so perhaps there was maternal animosity.
