Earning a lot of money and living the life to the fullest- who wouldn’t harbor such dreams? Some do achieve this fantasy, while others only achieve it in their fantasy. However, one such person who dreamt the 'impossible' and through sheer hard work, dedication, and a bit of ingenuity achieved the 'fantasy' would be the Fox News co-founder, Rupert Murdoch.
Fox News’ current CEO, Rupert Murdoch, is an American media mogul, who is still prominent at the age of 85! The year 2016 was buzzing with the news of this tycoons’ appointment as the reputed network’s CEO. And that wasn’t the only buzz created by this veteran. He got married for the fourth time this year too. And that too with a former supermodel. Age, apparently, doesn’t seem to be a problem when you have got ton load of money to spend on whatever you want- whether it be for alimony payments after uncountable divorces or for an extravagant lifestyle.
Quite a man he is, isn’t he? Probably should be given awards for all this achievement.
A self-made mogul is supposed to live like a mogul right? And would that be possible without money? Obviously not. So then how much does this magnate make each year?
Brace yourselves. And try not to get much jealous of this old man.
According to Forbes, Murdoch is estimated to have a net worth of an astounding $11.7 billion as of 2016. And now can you guess the salary? Well, it was almost $25 million in his previous network. So it is bound to be much more on Fox.
Now we can imagine how one could possibly have to go through three divorces and still remain a billionaire.
It was reported that Murdoch’s second wife Anna Torv, who was married to him for 32 years, walked away with a settlement worth $1.7billion when the couple divorced in 1999.

Meanwhile, Murdoch’s third wife, Wendi Deng was given a $44million New York apartment, a $20million property in Beijing, in addition to assets as per the couple's prenuptial agreement, when she split from him in 2013.

And July 2016 marked the month when Murdoch and former supermodel Jerry Hall announced their engagement after a whirlwind four-month romance.

Well, with properties and assets that are beyond anyone's dream, no trouble finding new love, isn't it?
