Rupert Murdoch files for divorce from Wendi Deng

LOS ANGELES — News Corp. CEO Rupert Murdoch has filed for divorce from Wendi Deng Murdoch, his wife since 1999.

Murdoch filed a one-page document today indicating that he was opening a divorce case in New York State Supreme Court in Manhattan.

A News Corp. spokesperson confirmed the filing.

The couple are parents to two daughters, who have no voting stake in the company. The children are beneficiaries of non-voting shares that are held in a trust.

Murdoch controls 40 percent of the voting shares of News Corp. through a separate family trust. Murdoch has four other children from two previous marriages, including three who have active roles within the company.
