London, July 19 (THAINDIAN NEWS) When media mogul Rupert Murdoch was attacked, the first person who jumped into his defense was his wife Wendi Deng. Rupert and son James have been summoned before the British Parliament to answer questions on how much they know on the phone hacking scandal that their newspaper News of the World was involved in. Wendy leapt onto the attacker who threw a cream pie into the face of Rupert and slapped him. Her reaction was swifter than that of the police who later came in and arrested the man.

41-year-old Wendi is the third woman that 80-year-old Rupert has walked down the aisle. She is the third of four children in her family. Her original name was Wenge Deng. Wendi is a product of Yale University in the United States.

Rupert married Wendi just 17 days after he finalized the divorce proceedings with former wife Anna Torv. Rupert and Anna were married for 32 years and before that marriage, Rupert was married to Patricia Booker for 11 years.

Since their marriage in 1999, Wendy and Rupert have two children together – 10-year-old Grace and 8-year-old Chloe.

Wendi is currently the chief of strategy for the Chinese operation of MySpace.
