Letter reportedly written by Wendi Deng, Rupert Murdoch's former wife, praises Tony Blair’s ‘good body’, ‘nice legs’ and ‘butt’

Vanity Fair claims that it has uncovered an undated note written by Rupert Murdoch's former wife

A sensational letter reportedly written by Rupert Murdoch’s former wife Wendi Deng, in which she appears to praise Tony Blair’s “good body”, “nice legs” and “butt”, has been published.

Vanity Fair, a highly regarded Condé Nast title, claims that it has uncovered an undated note written by Deng, apparently after her split from Murdoch last year, about her admiration for the former British Prime Minister and his “piercing blue eyes”.

“Oh, s**t, oh, s**t. Whatever why I’m so so missing Tony. Because he is so so charming and his clothes are so good,” the author of the note exclaimed in broken English.

“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 ended their 14-year marriage in 2013. However, there has been no indication that the breakdown of their relationship had anything to do with Blair’s ‘close friendship’ with Deng.

Sources close to Blair, who is the godfather of one of Murdoch and Deng’s children, have branded speculation about their relationship as “completely untrue”, while Murdoch and Deng made the joint decision “not to engage in public allegations or respond to negative claims.”

Even so, Vanity Fair’s article quotes several sources, it claims, that have a direct and intimate knowledge of the breakdown of Murdoch and Deng’s relationship.

“She would make up an excuse to be somewhere. She would say she’s going up to the ranch in Carmel with a girlfriend,” a source told the American publication.

The source goes on to suggest that staff informed Murdoch of his wife’s private meetings in some detail.

“They were all mutual friends; there was no reason Mr Murdoch wouldn't have welcomed Mr Blair into his home,” Vanity Fair quotes one insider, who “worked in a Murdoch family home”, as saying.

Representatives for Blair and Deng are yet to respond to The Independent’s request for comment.
