If anyone cares, there’s a report floating around that News Corp.’s founder Rupert Murdoch has filed for divorce from Wendi Deng Murdoch.
Deadline reports “the filing was just made this morning in New York State Supreme Court. The couple met in 1997, at a company party in Hong Kong. They married in 1999, less than a month after his divorce from ex-wife Anna Maria Torv Murdoch Mann was finalized. She is perhaps most fondly remembered for standing up for her husband and clocking Jonathan May-Bowles, after he threw a pie at her husband during a highly publicized testimony before a British parliamentary committee in connection with the News International phone hacking scandal.”
You will recall two years Wendi Deng came to her husband’s rescue, leaping up to punch an activist, who smashed a pie into him during a parliamentary hearing on the News of the World phone hacking scandal. Deng is Murdoch’s third wife.
Seems like Anna Maria Tory Murdoch is getting the last laugh…..
