Report: Murdoch, Blair Not Talking

This is not a rejected pitch for a Scandal spinoff, this is real life in Britain. The Mail on Sunday reported that Rupert Murdoch is refusing to speak to his once-BFF, former Prime Minister Tony Blair, allegedly due to the rumors of “multiple encounters” between Blair and Murdoch’s ex-wife Wendi Deng. Given that the ink is barely dry on the Murdoch divorce papers, these alleged encounters occurred while the Murdochs were still married. According to the tabloid, Deng and Blair stayed overnight at Murdoch’s California home on weekends in October 2012 and April 2013, as well as a weekend at Murdoch’s L.A. home and meetings in London and New York. Blair has always insisted his friendship with Deng is platonic. More details, please, and then we’ll make a judgment.
