Rupert Murdoch, the chief executive of News Corp, has filed for divorce from his wife Wendi, prompting speculation that the world's largest media empire could become engulfed in a bitter inheritance battle.


Murdoch, 82, married the Chinese-born Wendi Deng, 44, famed for attacking a protestor who hit her husband with a custard pie, in 1999. The couple have two daughters, aged 11 and nine.

The media mogul, whose wealth is estimated $11.2 billion, filed for divorce on the grounds that his relationship with his third wife had broken down “irretrievably for more than 6 months”.


The divorce petition was filed on Thursday in the New York Supreme Court.


Mrs Murdoch was informed in advance of her husband's decision, according to a person close to the family.

The divorce could prove one of the most expensive in legal history.


Murdoch's split from his second wife Anna Maria cost him $1.7 billion, including an $110 million cash settlement, in 1999.

Murdoch and Deng, who met at a Hong Kong company party in 1997, married just three weeks after his previous divorce was finalised.


A pre-nuptial agreement between Murdoch and Deng and two post-nuptial agreements will now be enforced.

That old fart had overused his worn out tiddy whilst the gold digger finds alternative source. In the end, that predator won ... In the beginning she had nothing but now, not only has she attained fame (or notoriety), she also will be inheriting a lot of wealth. Chinese women are VERY smart.   The man , well, he got buggered.

I think it was 2009 that pie incident happened. She was probably not protecting him as such but rather herself and she sees in him an object for monetary exploitation!
