Media mogul Rupert Murdoch is dating Mick Jagger’s ex Jerry Hall, according to reports.

The 84-year-old and the 59-year-old former model are understood to have been seeing each other secretly since being introduced in Australia.

According to the Daily Mail, the pair are set to make their relationship public at the Rugby World Cup final at Twickenham next Saturday.

If true, it would be Murdoch's first serious relationship since his break-up from his third wife Wendi Deng in 2013.

Although there is an age gap of 25 years between the Australian and the Texan, it is significantly less than the 38 years between him and Deng.

A friend of Murdoch told the Daily Mirror, "there is no question they are a couple.”

“They are really enjoying each other’s company very much. He is very fond of her", they added.

Hall was in 20-year relationship with Sir Mick before they split in 1999 and is the mother of four of his children.

Despite being often referred to as Sir Mick's former wife, they were never officially married. A wedding ceremony, which took place in Bali in 1990, was declared unlawful by the High Court when they broke up.

The pair remain on good terms and Hall has described the Rolling Stones frontman as "a great friend."
