Rupert Murdoch and Jerry Hall planned to go public about their relationship last year. Murdoch was seen with his new girlfriend on the red carpet at the Golden Globe Awards, even though there were rumors about the unlikely couple, according to Daily Mail.

Rumors about Murdoch and Hall have been circulating for a number of weeks, but now a family member has confirmed they are dating. Hall was introduced by the billionaire tycoon’s sister and niece in Australia.

“It’s all very new. They are really enjoying each other’s company very much,” a source close to the family said of the relationship. “He is very fond of her. There is no question that they are a couple.”

Rupert Murdoch and Jerry Hall have been spending an increasing amount of time together over the past few months with trips to shows on Broadway and meetings in California. They went public about their relationship at the Rugby World Cup final in October.

There is something of an age difference. There’s 25 years between them with Murdoch at 84 and Hall at 59. Perhaps most galling of all in reports about their relationship is that, much like Hugh Hefner, no one is willing to mention this fact. It would be entirely different if Jerry, a female, were older than Rupert. Sadly, this isn’t how the media works, as we saw with coverage of Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher’s relationship.

Murdoch, the media mogul who owns such companies/publications as Sky and The Sun, has been married three times. Rupert’s last marriage, to businesswoman Wendi Deng, lasted for 14 years and ended in 2013 after Murdoch reportedly believed Deng was infatuated with former British PM Tony Blair.

Former model Hall famously dated Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger. They began dating in 1977 and married in an unofficial ceremony in Bali in 1990. Their marriage was declared void when they separated in 1999. Jerry and Mick have four children together, including model Georgia May Jagger and Elizabeth Scarlett.

But it was their recent visit on the red carpet that confirmed most of these rumors. The two walked quietly, together, as they arrived for the annual Golden Globe Awards. They then took their seats inside the Beverly Hilton Hotel alongside The Martian star Matt Damon.

Rupert Murdoch and Jerry Hall are very fond of each other. The Texas-born model and the billionaire — who has headed up 21st Century Fox, the Wall Street Journal and the New York Post, to name just a few of the media companies in his portfolio — are joined by the hip. Will there be a wedding? Only time will tell.
