Media tycoon Rupert Murdoch, who is 92 years old, has found love again after his recent failed engagement. He is reportedly in the early stages of a romance with Elena Zhukova, a retired scientist and the mother of Russian socialite Dasha Zhukova. The connection was made through Murdoch's third wife, Wendi Deng, who is good friends with Dasha.

Ms. Zhukova, who is 66 years old, is a molecular biologist specialized in diabetes and has lived in America for over three decades. She spent many years at the medical research unit in UCLA before retiring. She is known to spend a lot of time with her grandchildren from Dasha's previous marriage to Roman Abramovich, the former owner of Chelsea FC.

Currently, Murdoch and Ms. Zhukova are enjoying a family summer holiday cruising the Mediterranean and today we're spotted near the Greek island of Corfu. They were recently spotted in Positano, where they were joined by Murdoch's son Lachlan and his wife Sarah, as well as his daughter Elisabeth and her husband Keith Tyson. They were said to be sailing on Murdoch's new $150 million yacht, Sarissa.

It is worth noting that their luxurious accommodation, the Christina O, is a historic boat that was converted from a frigate by Greek shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis. The yacht has a rich history, hosting notable events such as Jackie Kennedy and Prince Rainer's wedding reception. Renting the boat reportedly costs $767,000 a week.

Murdoch's daughters by Wendi Deng, Grace and Chloe, are apparently on board the Christina O also. It has 18 bedrooms.

Not spotted so far is Murdoch's son James. A Vanity Fair article earlier this year suggested that Lachlan thought that James had been leaking episodes from the family's life to the makers of the hit drama Succession.
