It's over for Rupert Murdoch and wife, Wendi Deng Murdoch.

According to Deadline, Murdoch filed for divorce on Thursday after 14 years of marriage. The pair have two daughters together.

This isn't Murdoch's first divorce. He split from first wife, Patricia Booker, in 1967 after a decade of marriage. And his second divorce, from Anna Murdoch, made headlines for the whopping $1.7 billion settlement his ex was awarded in 1999 (believed to be one of the highest settlements ever awarded). According to Forbes, the News Corp chairman was worth $11.2 billion as of March 2013.
