Wendi Deng has filed for divorce from Rupert Murdoch saying their marriage has “irretrievably broken down” after it was revealed the News Corp boss had dropped from #98 to #105 on the Forbes Rich List, her spokesman says.
For his part, Mr Murdoch, 82 – who met his Chinese-born third wife in 1997 at a cocktail party in Hong Kong – said he would not be contesting the divorce after he was shocked to discover that Ms Deng had gained 14 years in age since they were married in 1999.
A spokesperson for News Corp said an aggravating factor was the discovery by Mr Murdoch that unbeknown to him, Ms Deng had been secretly married to an arsehole for the last decade and a half.
