$330 Million of Property at Stake in Rupert Murdoch and Jerry Hall Divorce

(Silver Screen Beat) - Many people around the globe were shocked when media tycoons Rupert Murdoch and model Jerry Hall announced their split. Now that the two are divorcing, there’s a lot at stake, including their huge real estate portfolio. So, who’s getting what in the split?

What will Hall get from the Divorce?

In addition to their vast personal fortunes, the couple owns more than $330 million worth of real estate. There’s no news yet on how Murdoch and Hall will divide their assets, but it’s highly likely that Murdoch had Hall sign a prenuptial and postnuptial agreement. 

Murdoch has been married three more times, and all of his previous wives signed similar agreements. This means the former model will most likely not be taking a significant chunk of the media mogul’s $17.6 billion worth. 

Why Hall Didn’t Get A ‘Generous Prenup’

Hall has a substantial net worth, even though Murdoch is clearly the one who is more financially secure in their relationship. Her personal wealth has reached around $20 million through her roles as a model, actress, and model. According to Vanessa Lloyd-Pratt (a UK solicitor), Hall won’t be receiving a lot in the divorce. 

“One of the important aspects is the fact it’s a six-year marriage with no children from it,” She elaborated. “That is crucial. So even if there isn’t a prenup, she’s not going to be one of these people like his second wife Anna, who he was married to for 32 years, that is going to come out with £1.3billion.”

She continued, “After three costly divorces, having a generous prenup is not something Murdoch would do. Given he’s the shrewdest businessman ever, he will have tied up his empire into a completely tight trust. He’s a very savvy man.”

The Couple’s Real Estate Holdings

This means the only real battle will be over Murdoch and Hall’s properties. The couple owns a £13.8 million Oxfordshire home, a $37 million-restored manor house, and a $280,000,000 cattle ranch on 340,000 acre. 

The couple split up because the last property they purchased was only six months old. “What happened?” Lloyd-Pratt mused. “It’s a huge mystery. The other question is why now? If Jerry decided to bring the marriage to an end, why would she choose to do it now?”

“Because he’s 91, with the greatest respect, he’s not going to be around much longer,”She elaborated. “So you’d have thought she would have waited. Does it mean there’s no point in her waiting because the prenup is so ironclad?” There has been no clarification as to why the couple is divorcing, but it’s apparent that Hall will not be taking a large portion of Murdoch’s personal worth.
