Rupert Murdoch, the renowned media tycoon, has married for the fifth time at the age of 93. The ceremony took place at his vineyard in California, where he exchanged vows with Elena Zhukova, a 67-year-old retired Russian biologist.

Murdoch, who has six children from his previous marriages, had been married four times before. His most recent marriage was to Jerry Hall, which ended in divorce in 2022. He had also been engaged to Ann Lesley Smith, but the engagement was called off in April 2023.

Elena Zhukova, the daughter of a Russian oil billionaire, is a retired molecular biologist who has lived in America for over three decades. She was previously married to Alexander Zhukov, with whom she had three children, including socialite Dasha Zhukova.

The wedding ceremony was private, with no statement released to the media. However, photos of the couple were published in The Sun, which is owned by the Murdoch family. Murdoch was seen wearing a dark suit and yellow tie, while Zhukova wore a white dress.

This marriage marks Murdoch’s fifth union, following his previous marriages to Patricia Booker, Anna Torv, Wendi Deng, and Jerry Hall. Despite his advanced age, Murdoch remains a significant figure in the media industry, with his empire including Fox News, the Wall Street Journal, and the Sun.

The marriage has sparked interest and congratulations from around the world, with many wishing the couple a happy and long life together.

A woman reacted to the news and said,  “And someone will say men don’t benefit anything from marriage. At 93, he’s doing it for the fifth time . Clearly men enjoy being married as much as women do”.
