Rupert Murdoch has new girlfriend, says writer

FORGET the rumours - the only thing Rupert Murdoch is drunk on is love.

The News Corp boss had earlier this week dismissed questions raised by Gawker about whether he was drunk-tweeting, saying "believe Gawker, believe any nonsense" - which is a shame, because alcohol would help explain his recent tweets suggesting that all Muslims were responsible for terror.

Now this intriguing tidbit from Andy McSmith's Independent diary column offers some explanation for the Twitter messages, as well as hope that that they will improve.

"I am told that the personal unhappiness that caused him to send mysterious messages like 'Po' to his 558,000 Twitter followers can be traced to the breakup of his marriage to Wendi Deng.

"I am reliably told there is good news: new love has entered Rupert Murdoch's life.

"And the Murdoch children do not mind because she is almost 30 years younger than he is - he is 83 - she is past the age at which there is any danger of more Murdoch children emerging from the relationship to claim their share of the inheritance."

Intriguing.
