Media baron Rupert Murdoch, 92, set to marry for fifth time

New York/IBNS: Media baron Rupert Murdoch is all set to marry for the fifth time at age 92.

Murdoch Thursday announced that he plans to marry his girlfriend, Elena Zhukova, in June, The New York Times reported.

Murdoch has been married four times before.

His roller-coaster personal life is often fodder for the tabloid newspaper industry that he helped create on three continents.

Last year, Murdoch announced his engagement to dental hygienist-turned-conservative radio host Ann Lesley Smith. However, he called off the plan to get married less than a month later.

Zhukova, who immigrated to the United States from Russia, is a retired molecular biologist who at 67 is a quarter century younger than Murdoch, The Times said.

Her daughter, Dasha Zhukova, an arts patron and entrepreneur, was formerly married to the Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich, The Times said.

Murdoch's wedding will take place at his California vineyard and estate, Moraga, reports said.

Murdoch's last marriage was to model Jerry Hall, former long-term partner of Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger.
