Pootie-Deng Is the Celebrity Couple the World Needs

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.

Rupert Murdoch and Jerry Hall

Sometimes a romance — though initially surprising — makes total sense in retrospect. Such is the case with RupHall, the couple that shocked the world with their whirlwind wedding a few weeks ago. And yet: They really do deserve each other.

K Stew and SoKo are a match made in cool-person heaven, their combined aesthetic so achingly hip that it seems crazy it took them this long to find each other. They even have the same taste in men!
