Media mogul Rupert Murdoch, 92, has a new girlfriend, Elena Zhukova.Murdoch met Zhukova at a family gathering hosted by one of his ex-wives, per The Guardian. Zhukova is a retired biologist and was previously married to Russian billionaire, Alexander Zhukov.

Fox Corp. Chairman Rupert Murdoch is back on the dating scene again, four months after he called off an engagement with another woman.

His new love interest appears to be a retired biologist, Elena Zhukova, 66, according to The Guardian, which confirmed the relationship.

The outlet reported that Murdoch recently met Zhukova at a family gathering hosted by one of his ex-wives, Wendi Deng.

The two were also spotted together on a yacht while cruising in the Mediterranean, The Daily Mail reported.

Zhukova was previously married to Alexander Zhukov, a Russian oil magnate.

Earlier this year, Murdoch had announced plans to wed Ann Lesley Smith, a former conservative radio host.

“I dreaded falling in love — but I knew this would be my last. It better be. I’m happy,” he said in an interview with the New York Post columnist Cindy Adams at the time.

Two weeks after the engagement was announced, the plans were called off.

Murdoch, who is now 92, has been married four times.

His previous wives include a former department store model, a novelist, a businesswoman, and a former supermodel.
