The Jerry Hall Problem


Sylvester Stallone’s Wife Jennifer Flavin Files for Divorce After 25 Years of

Women have got it made, my friends. No matter what you hear about sexism, glass ceilings, misogynist Republicans, etc., men can’t do what Jennifer Flavin (and others) can do, i.e., marry a rich, older spouse, get divorced, take a windfall profit, and still have a lot of good years ahead of you.

Flavin is 54. Her soon-to-be ex-husband is 76.

I read the other day that Jerry Hall filed for divorce from Rupert Murdoch. I didn’t even know she was married to Rupert Murdoch. I know she was Mick Jagger’s partner for long enough to have four kids with him. The child support from someone of Mick Jagger’s wealth, while I don’t know exactly what it is, has got to provide a very handsome income stream.

Jerry Hall is 66 years old. She looks good for 66 but, you know, she’s not getting any younger, and Murdoch, at the age of 91, has not had the decency to die yet, so her best play at getting her cut of the Murdoch money before she’s too old to enjoy it is to divorce him.

There’s a brain teaser called The Monty Hall Problem, named for the former host of the TV game show Let’s Make a Deal.

Then there’s The Jerry Hall Problem: Do you want to keep 79-year-old Mick Jagger or trade him for 91-year-old Rupert Murdoch?
