After weeks of speculation that they were an item, the new lovebirds confirmed their growing affection by attending the Rugby World Cup final in London.
Proudly wearing Wallaby scarfs and carrying Aussie flags, the two walked into Twickenham arm-in-arm to cheer on Rupert’s team against the All Blacks.
They didn’t get the result he was after – New Zealand won its second straight title 34-17 – but that didn’t seem to dampen the PDA’s one bit.
Giggling and laughing, Jerry nuzzled into Rupert’s side as he explained the niceties of the game, making no effort to conceal their obvious attraction.
After Australia scored its second try of the game to claw the deficit back to 17-21, Rupert even planted a big smooch on Jerry.
“He is very fond of her,” a friend revealed. “There is no question that they are a couple.”
Introduced in Australia by Rupert’s nieces, Jerry and Rupert are thought to have spent time together in California and New York, where their first date was reputedly a Broadway show.
It’s the first relationship for Rupert since the end of his marriage to third wife Wendi Deng, who was 38 years his junior, in 2013.
Prior to that relationship he was married to former flight attendant from Melbourne, Patricia Booker, and Scottish journalist Anna Torv.
The evergreen supermodel, famous for saying, “The more flesh you show, the higher up the ladder you go”, has stepped out with a bevy of mostly well-heeled business types since splitting with singers Bryan Ferry of Roxy Music in 1977, and more famously, Mick Jagger in 1999.
Jerry’s more recent conquests include hedge fund financier Tim Attias, Perth property magnate Warwick Hemsely and jet-set scientist Armand Leroi.
But after her last relationship ended earlier this year, the Texas-born Jerry lamented, “I don’t get propositioned by anybody as much as I used to”.
Jerry says she thinks marriage is “a lovely idea” but she’s not looking for a second husband, or another ‘toy boy’.
“I actually prefer older men because I look better next to them.”
