Wendi Deng: Rupert Murdoch files for divorce from third wife
News Corp boss Rupert Murdoch has filed for divorce from Wendi Deng Murdoch, the mother of his two youngest children and a woman seen as a key player in the media empire.
The news, first reported by Deadline Hollywood and confirmed by a spokesman, brings to an end the media mogul's third marriage.
Murdoch, 82, met Deng in 1997 at a company party in Hong Kong. They were married two years later, less than a month after his divorce from ex-wife Anna Murdoch was finalised after 32 years of marriage.
