California: Media tycoon Rupert Murdoch's wife files for divorce

California/UNI: Model and actress Jerry Hall has filed for divorce from media tycoon Rupert Murdoch in a court in the US state of California, BBC reported on Saturday.

The petition cited "irreconcilable differences" between the pair, six years after they married.

It will be the fourth divorce for Murdoch, 91.

Hall, 66, who sought spousal support, was previously a long-term partner to Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger.

Murdoch -- whose News Corporation empire controls major outlets including Fox News and the Wall Street Journal in the US and The Sun and The Times in the UK -- was previously said to have been devoting more time to his new wife, BBC said.

The Texan model-turned-actress and Jagger, with whom she had four children, had tied the knot in a Hindu wedding ceremony in Bali, Indonesia, in 1990.

The marriage was annulled less than a decade later in London's High Court of Justice which ruled that the marriage was never legal under British or Indonesian law.

Murdoch was previously married to Australian flight attendant Patricia Booker, from 1956 to 1967, Scottish-born journalist Anna Mann, from 1967 to 1999, and Chinese-born entrepreneur Wendi Deng, from 1999 to 2014.
