A theory has emerged that Rupert Murdoch ended his six-year marriage to model Jerry Hall because he disapproved of his fourth wife’s smoking habit.
Not a fan of his model wife’s penchant for tobacco, the media mogul was often spotted at a distance as Mrs. Hall took a drag on a cigarette.
The couple’s split was publicly revealed when Mrs Hall and her side of the family were unable to attend her husband’s annual summer party in London this week.
Rumors circulated about the reason for the shock’s breakup, but Murdoch’s strong aversion to Mrs. Hall’s smoking is a persistent theory, Private Sydney reported.

The Texan model has been open about her love of smoking and previously boasted that she looked “pretty good” for her age, despite her habit.
‘But I smoke, I drink, I like wine, I like sunbathing, I drink coffee. I do all kinds of things that I shouldn’t,” she told Good Housekeeping in 2014.
‘I thought it was strange that she wasn’t there. She’s a social butterfly and would generally be present on occasions like these,” one of those attending the Serpentine Gallery in London said on Monday evening about Hall’s absence from the event.
“I also noticed that no one from her side of the family was there, nor her friends.”
Murdoch and Hall were last seen together in public in London in August 2021, when they were pictured separately for dinner. They reportedly left together in a shared car.
They recently ended their relationship, surprising friends, two people with knowledge of the situation told the New York Times†
Making no attempt to hide her habit, Hall was spotted smoking in the back of a limousine while traveling through Australia with Murdoch in 2017.
