business leaders and entrepreneurs Biography - Information

Wendi Deng was an executive in the Asian satellite television division of News Corporation before marrying the head of the company, Rupert Murdoch. She now lives with Murdoch in New York with their two children, Grace and Chloe.

Deng was born in Xuzhou, China to a middle class family. Her father presided over a machinery factory, which allowed them to live a relatively comfortable life.

She studied in the United States and received a master's degree in business administration at the Yale School of Management, before returning to Hong Kong to work at News Corporation's STAR TV.

Deng's life changed completely when she met and married Rupert Murdoch in 1999. She became Murdoch's third wife on the 25th of June, 1999. News of the marriage created much talk in the media as there was an almost 40 year age difference between the couple.

Age has been no barrier to fathering more children for the 70+ year old Rupert Murdoch as they have had two children together. Grace Helen Murdoch was born in 2001 and Chloe Murdoch was born in 2003.

Wendi Deng continues to be active in the News Corp company, especially with Murdoch's push into the potentially lucrative market of China. Chinese born Deng has recently been working on the MySpace.com move into China.

"We have to make MySpace a very Chinese site. I have sent my wife across there because she understands the language.” Rupert Murdoch 2006


Although Deng and Murdoch's previous family are said to remain close, there have been some tension in regards to voting rights of a Murdoch family owned trust that controls a 28.5 percent voting stake of News Corporation. His previous children did not object to sharing the financial wealth with their two new half sisters, but they did not believe they should have the voting rights. Tension over the trust was one contributing factor to Murdoch's eldest son and potential successor (Lachlan Murdoch) leaving the News Corp company.

In 2013 Rupert Murdoch and Wendi Deng filed for divorce. The couple were married for 14 years and they have two children together, Grace, 11, and Chloe, 9 at the time of their divorce.
