Rupert Murdoch engaged for sixth time

Billionaire media mogul Rupert Murdoch is engaged to be married later this year.

Murdoch is set to marry Elena Zhukova, 67, the retired molecular biologist he started dating last year, The New York Times first reported.

The Hill confirmed the Times’s reporting Thursday evening.

Murdoch, 92, last year ceded control of his multi-billion-dollar media empire, including News Corp. and Fox Corp., to his eldest son, Lachlan.

In March of last year, Murdoch, who has been married and divorced four times, announced he was engaged to Ann Lesley Smith, a former model. The couple called off their engagement a month later.

Murdoch and Zhukova are planning on getting married at the billionaire’s vineyard and estate in California, the Times reported.
