Rupert Murdoch:Six children from three marriges
« on: October 26, 2006, 11:51:34 PM »
This is the family life of the so called conservative news channel fox president Rupert Murdoch. He has had six children from three different marriages. His last marriage in which in he has had two children in 2001 and 2003 the women is 40 years younger then he is. He was 70 and she was 30 when they got married. Here is the post from wikipedia on his personal life. What a phony conservative.  :(

Here is what it says in Wikipedia.

Murdoch has been married three times. His first marriage in 1956 was to Patricia Booker, with whom he had one child, Prudence Murdoch McLeod. They were divorced in 1967. Very little is known about their marriage, and Murdoch has never spoken about it publicly.

In the same year, he married an employee, Anna Tõrv, a Roman Catholic of Estonian extraction. The timing (and Murdoch's subsequent behavior) suggests that he had begun the relationship with Tõrv well before his marriage to Patricia ended.

Torv and Murdoch had three children: Elisabeth Murdoch (born in Sydney, Australia August 22, 1968), Lachlan Murdoch (born in London, UK Sept 8, 1971), and James Murdoch, (born in Wimbledon, UK Dec 13, 1972). Anna and Rupert divorced acrimoniously in June, 1999.

Anna Murdoch received a settlement of some reported US$1.7 billion in assets. Seventeen days after the divorce, on June 25, 1999, Murdoch, then 70, married Wendi Deng, then 30, a recent college graduate and newly appointed vice-president of STAR TV. She had previously married, in 1990, Jake Cherry (born 1937), from whom she was divorced in 1992. Anna Murdoch was also remarried, in October 1999, to William Mann.

Murdoch has since had two children with Wendi: Grace (born in New York November 19, 2001) and Chloe (born in New York July 17, 2003).

Murdoch's eldest son Lachlan, formerly the deputy chief operating officer at the News Corporation and the publisher of the New York Post, was Murdoch's heir apparent before resigning from his executive posts at the global media company at the end of July 2005. Lachlan's surprise departure left James, chief executive of the satellite television service British Sky Broadcasting since November 2003, as the only Murdoch scion still directly involved with the company's operations, though Lachlan has agreed to remain on the News Corporation's board.

Sorry about the spelling error in the title: marriages, not marriges.
