Tony Blair strongly denies affair with Wendi Deng as outrageous rumours sweep the internet
Daily Mail ^ | 14:25 EST, 14 June 2013 | Tom Leonard

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.

‘If you are asking if they are having an affair, the answer is no.’

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.
{Snip}
“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.”

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.

I give her a lot of credit for having spiked that cretin who tried to attack her husband a couple of years ago. Maybe her 'roving eye' is just keeping aware of the surroundings ... and looking for someone else to smash if they got too close ...

Since Tony Blair by his own admission is a “Christian” advocate for homosexual activity, why would he have any problem with adultery?

Well I do give Mr. Blair credit for banging Ms. Dung, if that’s the case.

Nah, just granddaughter.

When they married, he was 68, she was 31. She's 44 now, and still looks good.
