Rupert Murdoch, 93, and Elena Zhukova, 67, Tie the Knot at His California Estate

Rupert Murdoch, the 93-year-old chairman of Fox and News Corp, has recently wed for the fifth time! The lucky lady this time is retired molecular biologist Elena Zhukova, 67, with whom he exchanged vows at his California vineyard and estate, Moraga, on June 1.

The ceremony was a private affair, with Zhukova stunning in a white Emilia Wickstead dress, and Murdoch looking dapper in a classic black suit. The event was attended by notable figures like New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft and News Corp CEO Robert Thompson.

The couple’s relationship began in the summer of the previous year, with their engagement announced in March 2024. Interestingly, they were introduced by Murdoch’s third wife, Wendi Deng. Prior to Zhukova, Murdoch was engaged to Ann Lesley Smith, but the engagement was called off shortly after being announced in The New York Post.

Murdoch’s marital history is quite colorful, with his most recent marriage to Jerry Hall ending in divorce in 2022. His marriage to Deng, with whom he shares two daughters, also ended in divorce in 2013. Before that, Murdoch was married to Anna Maria Torv for 32 years, with whom he has three children. His first marriage was to Patricia Booker, with whom he had his first child, Prudence.

The newlyweds were all smiles in the photos taken at Moraga, a stunning property nestled in the Santa Monica Mountains. The lovebirds are starting a new chapter in their lives, surrounded by family and friends, as they embark on this journey together. Cheers to the happy couple!
