Jerry Hall and Rupert Murdoch put on an amorous display at the Rugby World Cup finals on Saturday (Oct. 31), seemingly confirming that they’re together by snuggling closely as New Zealand took home the coveted Webb Ellis cup in a 34-17 win against Australia.
The 84-year-old media tycoon appeared to be explaining the rules of the game to the model as he leaned in to whisper in her ear while pointing at the field. He also gave her a kiss on the cheek, one arm intimately wrapped round her waist.
Earlier in the day the Australian-born business man tweeted about his excitement to watch the game. “Beautiful day in London. World’s best two teams playing. Praying for Wallabies.”
The pair have been spotted together several times in the past few weeks. Most recently Rupert and Jerry, 59, were seen enjoying a date in New York City, stepping out to watch the hit Broadway musical Hamilton. It is believed that the relationship blossomed when the two were introduced by a mutual friend in Australia.
This is the first time that the billionaire has been linked to anyone since the end of his marriage to his third wife, Chinese businesswoman Wendi Deng in 2013. Prior to that relationship he was married to former flight attendant from Melbourne, Patricia Booker, and Scottish journalist Anna Torv.
Jerry was formerly with Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger for 23 years. The two parted company due to the singer’s infidelities but remain good friends and co-parent their four children together.
