How much money Jerry will receive in the divorce is not known for certain at the moment. Lawyer Mark Stevens of Howard Kennedy’s firm said Murdoch likely signed a “rather generous” prenuptial agreement. It was drawn up with “the expectation that Hall would not interfere with the line of succession” in the tycoon’s business empire.

Most likely, the woman will receive “tens of millions”, which will be paid to her in the form of daily expenses.
