Recently, Vanity Fair released a passionate note claimed to be written by Wendi Deng Murdoch, the Chinese ex-wife of Australian media mogul Rupert Murdoch, pouring out her feelings for Tony Blair, the former prime minister of Great Britain. It was part of a 12-page article detailing evidence of their alleged affair.
“Whatever why I’m so so missing Tony,” she wrote in a mash note (love note) to herself, published in Vanity Fair. “Because he is so so charming and his clothes are so good. He has such good body and he has really really good legs, butt…And he is slim tall and good skin. Pierce blue eyes which I love. Love his eyes. Also I love his power on the stage… and what else and what else and what else…”
Murdoch and Deng’s divorce settlement went through last year after 14 years of marriage, and then rumors started to spread about Deng’s feelings toward Blair. “She got careless,” according to one source in the article. “And for whatever reason, these affairs… they started to multiply and be amplified over the last year.”
Vanity Fair’s sources explained that Murdoch knew about his wife’s fixation with Blair, who is the godfather to Murdoch and Deng’s oldest daughter, 12-year-old Grace.
Of course, Blair has previously denied that his relationship with Deng was sexual; what the article reveals about his visits while Murdoch was away, or trips to see her at the Murdoch’s ranch in Carmel, California, tell a different story. Sources like Murdoch’s staff say Deng would say her overnight solo trips to their family homes were “girls’ weekends,” only to have Blair show up.
The article quotes a worker at one of the Murdoch family homes saying: “Mr. Blair was reluctant at first, they were all mutual friends; there was no reason Mr. Murdoch wouldn’t have welcomed Mr. Blair into his home. But one day, Mr. Blair arrived and Mrs. Murdoch was sort of being very flirtatious. She was charming him. He asked the staff: ‘When is Mr. Murdoch going to arrive?’ And when he was told ‘Tomorrow night,’ Mr. Blair rolled his eyes and gave a panicked look.”
The scandalous story could have come right from the pages of one of Murdoch’s own tabloid papers about lies, money, sex, and power. Chinese netizens were quick to announce their disgust with Deng, who they see as a shameless gold digger. Now 82, Rupert had left his wife to marry 30-year-old Deng.
Apparently there is even a school for this new occupation. The Gold Digger Academy based in Beijing teaches Chinese women how to bag a millionaire.
