Tony Blair denied outrageous internet rumours today linking him with the divorce of Rupert Murdoch and Wendi Deng.
The internet was awash with unfounded suggestions that the former Prime Minister may have been romantically involved with 44-year-old Miss Deng, who is a close friend.
The feverish speculation followed a Twitter claim by BBC business editor Robert Peston, who has close links with senior Murdoch empire insiders, that he had been told that undisclosed reasons for Murdoch divorcing Deng are jaw-dropping - & hate myself for wanting to know what they are.
The rumours are understood to have been emphatically rejected by Blair aides as untrue either now or in the past and also as highly defamatory.
A spokesman for Mr Blair told the Hollywood Reporter: If you are asking if they are having an affair, the answer is no.
The spokesman said Mr Blair would not be making a public comment on the divorce himself.

I’ve seen pix of her, definitely NOT GUILTY.
Deng me, Deng me, they oughta take a rope and hang me...
There's more where she came from, right Rupe?
Lovely lady! I’m currently available.
Sounds Clintonesque. The statement denies they are having an affair at the current moment. It does not include the past or future.
Less than two years ago, she was known for defending her husband (Murdoch) at a hearing.
“The man lobbed a plate of shaving foam into Murdoch’s face at point-blank range. There was an astonishing reaction from Wendi, who, sitting behind her husband, immediately returned fire.
“Wendi was on her feet lobbing the plate back at her husband’s assailant before James got up. Another woman small and dark-haired was the one who accosted the assailant first.”
Pretty with a very wide nose...
Gee, that’s too bad.
I hope it all blows over soon so that the kids aren’t having to deal with the public humiliation caused by selfish parents.
Not at her price.
Good choice for a picture. :)
Yeah, but she’s still a hottie.
“She’s the best money can buy (and probably a Chinese spy)”
I wonder what operation PRISM has to say about Tony and Ms. Deng’s cell phone conversations?
I,m a chick defense attorney.
