The world is abuzz with rumours of an alleged relationship between media personality and businesswoman Wendi Deng (sometimes known simply as Wendi D) and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
In a story which seems as though it has leap straight from the pages of fantasy, the ex-wife of Australian media titan Rupert Murdoch has been linked to the Russian leader.
The claims seem to stem from a purported ‘Kremlin insider’ who spoke to the American publication Us Weekly. Adding fuel to the fire, is Wendi Deng’s presence on Roman Abramovich’s $400 million yacht in the Caribbean.
The Chelsea-owner and billionaire oligarch is a close friend of President Putin’s. However, Abranmovich’s partner, Dasha Zhukova, is reportedly close friends with Wendi.
