Now THIS is a pairing!

On Thursday, it was revealed that Rupert Murdoch‘s ex Wendi Deng is reportedly now dating President of Russia Vladimir Putin. WHAT?

Apparently, there have been romance rumors circling these two ever since they became single following their divorces in 2014 and 2013.

A source close to The Kremlin dished the relationship is in fact a “serious” one. Wow.

Still, it will be inneresting to see if the controversial politician opens up about his dating life at all as he is famously private. Yes, Putin’s people confirmed his divorce to his wife of 30 years, named Lyudmila Putina, back in April 2014. However, the POR rarely even speaks about his daughters Maria and Yekaterina!

In a rare moment of candor in December 2015, he revealed:

“They studied only at Russian universities. I am proud of them. They continue to study and work. My daughters speak three European languages fluently. One of them can even speak one or two Oriental languages. They are making their first steps and are successful. I never discuss questions related to my family. They are not involved in business or politics. They are not pushing for this.”

Not to mention, Vladimir was previously linked to Russian gymnast Alina Kabaeva, who according the Swiss newspaper Bild, had given birth to the president’s love child in a Swiss hospital in March 2015. We’d say, “scandal” if The Kremlin hadn’t already denied this bit of gossip!

While Miz Deng hasn’t been spotted cozying up to Vladmir, she was seen on Monday lounging on the duo’s mutual friend Roman Abramovich‘s yacht in St. Bart’s. Curiouser and curiouser!

It’s said that Wendi’s billionaire ex filed for divorce in June 2013 after he became suspicious of the businesswoman’s relationship with the former British Prime Minister Tony Blair. Now Blair’s people may have denied the affair, but that still doesn’t mean that Wendi doesn’t have a thing for politicians!

That being said, we doubt that Mr. Murdoch will really care who his former flame is seeing as he is now happily married to Jerry Hall. Of course, we’ll be keeping our ears to the ground in order to find out if Russia’s about to have a new First Lady on their hands!
