Rupert Murdoch has thrown his hat back into the dating ring, currently rumoured to be dating model Jerry Hall.

The supposed relationship would be the 84-year-old’s first public foray into the dating world since he split with Chinese-born American businesswoman Wendi Deng in 2013.

Ms Hall, 59, is the former wife of Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger.

A friend described the pair as “the perfect couple”, the Australian Financial Review reported.

The couple were expected to make their first public appearance together at the Rugby World Cup Final in Twickenham on October 31.

The relationship with Ms Hall was proof the 84-year-old was “as vigorous in his private life as he is in business”, a source said, according to the AFR.

Mr Murdoch has been married three times, the first to Patricia Booker in 1956.

They divorced in 1967 and Mr Murdoch married Anna Torv, a Scottish-born cadet journalist working for The Daily Telegraph, later the same year.

They divorced 32 years later and Mr Murdoch married Ms Deng later the same year in a relationship that would last 14 years.

It ended around the time an article was published in The Mail on Sunday reporting Ms Deng was “infatuated” with former Prime Minister Tony Blair.

Ms Hall was married to the Rolling Stones frontman for nine years before they split in 1999.

“It’s all very new. They are really enjoying each other’s company very much,” a close friend said of the pair.

“He is very fond of her. There is no question that they are a couple.”
