Are Vladimir Putin and Rupert Murdoch’s ex-wife Wendi Deng dating? A new report says that there just might be a hot new couple alert! Check it out here.
Oh, boy — Vladimir Putin, 63, and Wendi Deng, 47 (Rupert Murdoch’s ex-wife), are apparently an item! They divorced their spouses in 2014 and 2013, respectively, and now they’re in a “serious” relationship with each other. Read on for all of the deets!
Us Weekly reports that an insider has spilled the beans, telling them that the relationship is “serious”! Indeed, the rumors of their coupledom have been swirling for quite some time now, though the two have yet to be seen together in public. The Russian president was married to Lyudmila Putina for 30 years, and they have two daughters, Maria and Yekaterina. However, Putin divorced her in April 2014, and rarely speaks publicly about personal matters. About a year earlier, in June 2013, Murdoch filed for divorce from Wendi, after 14 years of marriage — they also have two daughters together.
The timing of this relationship is rather convenient, as Murdoch just married former model Jerry Hall on March 4. They tied the knot at Spencer House in London on March 4 — they got engaged in January of this year after only 4 months! Jerry looked beautiful on the big day, and of course she flashed her £2.4million engagement ring for the photographers. “Feel like the luckiest AND happiest man in world,” Rupert tweeted on March 4 after he and Jerry were married. The newlyweds also hosted a private gathering the next day for family and friends. Well, looks like his ex Wendi is on her own path to happiness…this time with Vlad!
