Guess who Russian Prez Vladimir Putin is dating?

Moscow: President of Russia Vladimir Putin is dating Rupert Murdoch's ex-wife Wendi Deng.

US Weekly published an astonishing report claiming that President Putin and Deng were dating. 

A source told the publication that the relationship is "serious".

The controversial Russian President was earlier married to Lyudmila Aleksandrovna Putina and the couple had two daughters- Maria and Yekaterina.

The couple ended their 30-year-old marriage in 2013.

Following his split with Lyudmila, Putin was rumoured to be dating Russian gymnast Alina Kabaeva. Reports even claimed that he fathered her child. However, both Kremlin and Kabaeva denied all such reports.

Deng married media mogul Rupert Murdoch in 1999. The couple had two daughters- Grace and Chloe. Murdoch filed for divorce in 2013 citing irreconcilable differences.

However, reports at the time claimed that Deng had crush on the former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, who is also the god-father to one her daughters, which eventually led to her divorce with Murdoch.

We wish the couple all the best and hope that this not an April Fool's day prank!
