On the eve of April Fools Day, Us Weekly has blessed us with the most wonderful news: Wendi Deng, the ex-wife of Rupert Murdoch, and Vladimir Putin, the president of Russia, are rumored to be dating.
We have christened them with a new name: Pootie-Deng.
Move over, Bennifer. Step aside, Brangelina. GTFO, RupHall. Bow down, everybody, for Pootie-Deng is here.
According to Us, rumors of Pootie-Deng’s romance have been “circulating around the corridors of power — from Washington, D.C., to Europe and Asia … since their respective divorces in 2014 and 2013.”
And it makes sense. Wendi Deng clearly has a type: Her ex, billionaire Rupert Murdoch, is old, white, and powerful as hell — just like Putin.
They say success is the best revenge, so while Rupe is newly married to an ex-model, Wendi has upgraded to a hotter, more age-appropriate man in power.
We wish the couple the best, and pray that this is no April Fools prank.
