The rumour began just over ten days ago-Jerry Hall was being squired around town by a new man. This week his identity was revealed : Warwick Hemsley, a millionaire Perth businessman who is on the board of numerous A- listed companies. 

Jerry is residing in Perth for an upcoming appearance of her memorable role in The Graduate, in which she appears nude on stage and which opens tomorrow night.

Hemsley has impeccable art credentials as well. He is on the Council of the National Gallery in Canberra and was Deputy Chairman of the West Australian Opera Company and was Chairman of the Australia Day Council of Western Australia. He was instrumental in bringing about the current exhibition in Canberra :Masterpieces from Paris: Van Gogh, Gauguin, Cézanne and beyond: Post-impressionism from the Musée D’Orsay.

Hall and Hemsley were spotted arm in arm at a party given in Jerry's honour at Eileen 'Big Red' Bond's up-market Peppermint Grove mansion on Tuesday night. Bond, ex-wife of Alan Bond and Hall are old friends-they met through theatre producer John Reid, the former manager of Elton John.
