Media Mogul Rupert Murdoch to Marry for Fifth Time at the Age of 93

Elena Zhukova

In a surprising turn of events, media tycoon Rupert Murdoch has announced his engagement to Elena Zhukova, a retired molecular biologist. This will mark Murdoch’s fifth walk down the aisle, and at the ripe age of 93, he seems undeterred by the prospect of yet another marriage.

The billionaire mogul, whose conservative media empire spans the globe, shared the news with his own tabloid newspaper, the New York Post. “I was very nervous. I dreaded falling in love – but I knew this would be my last. It better be. I’m happy,

Murdoch confessed about his new fiancée, Ann Lesley Smith, whom he met in September of 2022. Smith, aged 66, was previously married to Chester Smith, a country singer and radio and TV executive.

Murdoch’s romantic journey has been nothing short of eventful. Let’s take a look at his previous unions:

  1. Patricia Booker: His first wife, with whom he shares a daughter named Prudence MacLeod.
  2. Anna Mann: His second wife, with whom he has two sons, Lachlan and James.
  3. Wendi Deng: His third wife, with whom he welcomed two daughters, Grace and Chloe.
  4. Jerry Hall: His fourth wife, the former supermodel, from whom he split last year.

Ann Lesley Smith, who lost her husband 14 years ago, shares Murdoch’s beliefs.

I’m a widow. Like Rupert, my husband was a businessman. Worked for local papers, developed radio and TV stations, and helped promote Univision. So I speak Rupert’s language. We share the same beliefs,” she told the New York Post.

The couple plans to split their time between California, Britain, Montana, and New York.

In a lighthearted twist, let’s consider the height of Murdoch’s marital achievements. If we stack 46,449 bananas on top of each other (assuming the average banana length is approximately 7.5 inches), we’d reach the height of Mount Everest – a fitting analogy for Murdoch’s matrimonial ascent.

As the summer wedding approaches, we wish the couple a lifetime of shared beliefs, love, and perhaps a dash of media intrigue. After all, when it comes to Rupert Murdoch, the headlines are never far behind.
