“He told me to marry some rich guy!” Jerry Hall reveals that Andy Warhol once told her to “leave” millionaire Sir Mick Jagger and marry for money … years before she met the billionaire’s husband, Rupert Murdoch.
Jerry Hall says legendary pop art pioneer Andy Warhol once told her to “leave” Sir Mick Jagger and “marry some rich guy” – despite being worth millions in the Rolling Stones.
The 65-year-old model has been in a relationship with a singer (78) with whom she has four children, 22 years old since 1977, when the band was at the peak of their tours.
But she admitted that her late boyfriend, who had died at the age of 58 in 1987, thought she could do better, and urged her to leave the long-term affair.

“I first met Andy Warhol in Paris in 1973. Andy made six of my portraits. He took millions of photos for me, “she told the Times.
“He loved my Southern accent. He always told me to leave Mick Jagger and marry some rich guy. “
Jerry, who is now married to billionaire newspaper mogul Rupert Murdoch, 90, told her how she met the artist at the legendary New York night studio Studio 54.
They decided to be “boring” and watching people while “naughty” stars, including Mick, were partying in the basement.

She said, ‘I never went to the basement, not even Andy, but terrible things happened downstairs.
“Everyone was taking cocaine, it was so boring. I never took that, not even Andy. “
Jerry and Rupert married an intimate ceremony in London in March 2016 after a tumultuous five-month affair.
Sweet: Rupert Murdoch, 90, and Jerry got married at an unobtrusive ceremony at Spencer House overlooking Green Park in central London in March 2016 after a five-month affair.
The media mogul has six children from three previous marriages: James (49), Lachlan (50), Elisabeth (44), Prudence (63), Grace Helen (20) and Chloe (18).
His marriage to Jerry is the fourth for Murdoch and the first for Hall, who in 1990 held an unofficial wedding ceremony with Jagger in Bali, Indonesia.
