Jerry Hall and Rupert Murdoch may have been one of the most unlikely couplings of 2015, but it seems their romance is still going strong, after the loved-up pair were spotted arm-in-arm on the Golden Globes red carpet.
The glamorous outing comes just over three months after it was revealed that Rupert, 84, and Jerry, 59, had struck up a relationship, having first been introduced in Australia by his sister and niece, and two years after the media baron ended his 14-year marriage to Wendi Deng.
Both Jerry and Rupert looked happy and relaxed as they smiled for the cameras on the carpet, with Jerry modeling an elegant floor-length black gown, which was embellished with stunning sequin detail, while Rupert opted for a dapper suit and tie combination, finishing his look off with a pair of tinted glasses.

Jerry left her blonde hair hanging in loose waves around her shoulders, and paired her chic ensemble with a simple black and silver clutch bag and a pair of pointed-toe black pumps.
And once inside the award ceremony, the couple were lucky enough to share a table with some of Hollywood’s most illustrious stars, with Jerry being seated next to Best Actor in a Motion Picture nominee Matt Damon.
Rupert and Jerry’s appearance at the Globes marks one of the few times that they have stepped out together as a couple.
In October, the pair attended the final of the Rugby World Cup in London together to lend their support to Rupert’s home nation of Australia as they went up – and eventually lost against – New Zealand in the sporting battle.

At the time, a family friend of the Murdochs told The Mail on Sunday: ‘It’s all very new. They are really enjoying each other’s company very much.’
Another friend elaborated: ‘He is very fond of her. There is no question that they are a couple,’ before adding that both Rupert and Jerry’s children were aware of the relationship.
The blossoming romance is the first for Rupert since his very public split from his ex-wife Wendi Deng, whom he is thought to have separated from after rumors surfaced about her ‘infatuation’ with former British Prime Minister Tony Blair.
But Rupert is no stranger to commitment, having been married twice before his relationship with Wendi, first to Patricia Booker, a former flight attendant from Melbourne, and then to Scottish journalist Anna Torv.

Meanwhile Jerry had a 20-year-old relationship with Rolling Stones rocker Mick Jagger, which ended in 1999. The couple have four children together, two daughters – Elizabeth and Georgia – and two sons – Gabriel and James.
Rupert has six children from his relationships with his three previous wives, including two daughters, Chloe and Grace, from his marriage to Wendi.
And while Rupert and Jerry’s relationship may be unlikely, their appearance at the Golden Globes will probably come as no surprise to those who know him best. Indeed, Rupert has attended the award ceremony on a number of occasions in the past, often on the arm of his ex-wife Wendi.
The former couple attended the glittering awards event in 2011, 2012, and 2013, where they joined scores of stars on the red carpet, just like Jerry and Rupert did this year.
