Wendi Deng's 'love note for Tony Blair' published
据称，默多克（Rupert Murdoch）的前妻邓文迪一发不可收拾的迷恋上了英国前首相托尼·布莱尔（Tony Blair ），并曾书写了一篇随笔幻想他那“优美的身段，非常优美的双腿和臀部“。
Wendi Deng, the former wife of Rupert Murdoch, allegedly developed a passionate obsession with Tony Blair and wrote a note in which she rhapsodised about his
“good body and really really good legs [and] Butt“.
Miss Deng is said to have become infatuated with the former Prime Minister while she was still married to the media mogul.
In the note, Chinese-born Miss Deng wrote in broken English: “Oh, s***, oh, s***. Whatever why I’m so so missing Tony. Because he is so so charming and his clothes are so good.
“He has such good body and he has really really good legs Butt... And he is slim tall and good skin. Pierce blue eyes which I love. Love his eyes. Also I love his power on the stage… and what else and what else and what else… [all sic]“
The contents of the sensational note are detailed in Vanity Fair magazine, which described it as “a steamy, lovelorn missive“.
Mr Blair has denied all allegations of an affair with Miss Deng. Friends of Miss Deng say the pair were never more than friends.
Mr Murdoch’s discovery of his wife’s crush on Mr Blair was said to be the “final straw“ that prompted him to file for divorce after 14 years of marriage. The News Corp executive chairman felt “betrayed“ as he considered Mr Blair to be a close ally.
According to Vanity Fair, a besotted Miss Deng invited Mr Blair to spend a weekend at the Murdoch family ranch in Carmel, California in October 2012 – omitting to tell him that her husband would not be there.
“Mr Blair was reluctant at first. They were all mutual friends; there was no reason Mr Murdoch wouldn’t have welcomed Mr Blair into his home,“ a Murdoch staff member told the magazine.
“But one day Mr Blair arrived and Mrs Murdoch was sort of being very flirtatious. She was charming him.
“He asked staff, ‘When is Mr Murdoch going to arrive? And when he was told, ‘Tomorrow night', Mr Blair rolled his eyes and gave a panicked look.“
Miss Deng, 45, had allegedly told her 82-year-old husband she was spending a “girls’ weekend“ at the ranch in Carmel. That weekend, Mr Murdoch’s 103-year-old mother, Dame Elisabeth, had been released from hospital and was expected to die within days, so family had gathered at her bedside.
The Australian media mogul began to hear rumours about his wife in 2012 and is said to have interviewed staff members at his various homes to ask them what they had seen.
According to the magazine, he learned that Mr Blair had visited Miss Deng at the Carmel ranch on more than one occasion. He allegedly spent the weekend of April 27, 2013 with Miss Deng at the property.
Other sources are quoted as placing Mr Blair and Miss Deng at the Carlyle hotel in New York, on a private yacht and at Mr Murdoch’s home in London.
Mr Blair declined to comment on the article but has said in the past that allegations of an affair are categorically untrue. He was for many years a family friend of the Murdochs and is godfather to their elder daughter, Grace.
Friends say he was aware Miss Deng had become “emotionally dependent“ on him but felt unable to turn his back on her as she was going through a difficult time in her personal life.
