LINK Wendi's crush on Blair revealed: Rupert Murdoch's ex-wife wrote of 'warm feelings' as it emerges that tycoon banned former PM from summit after he said 'It's me or Tony'
It has also emerged that Mr Blair, 60, and Ms Deng, 44, met on a superyacht owned by music billionaire David Geffen without Mr Murdoch’s knowledge.
The new revelations follow our expose last week of the ‘terminal’ rift between Mr Murdoch and Mr Blair over Mr Blair’s ‘multiple encounters’ with Ms Deng, including three overnight stays at two of Mr Murdoch’s homes behind his back.
Sources at Mr Murdoch’s offices in London say the staff’s account came as a shock, not least because Ms Deng had told him that she had gone to Carmel to visit friends on one occasion and on the other that she was going alone. In fact, she was there with Mr Blair on both occasions, said the source.
ETA : For those of you catching up on your Sunday gossip after attending church this morning. I think the biggest shock is finding out Tony Blair isn't gay?
