Wendi Deng looked nothing short of sensational as she enjoyed a sun-kissed getaway to the Caribbean’s St Barts on Monday.
The American entrepreneur, 54, showed off her incredible physique in a light blue bikini as she splashed around in the surf on a lazy day at the beach.
Wendi, who was accompanied by daughter Grace, who she shares with ex-husband Rupert Murdoch, opted for a ribbed bikini top with matching bottoms.

Wendi complemented her beachy look with a selection of gold jewelry including a bracelet, watch and necklace.
Her raven locks were loose and wet from the waves while she shielded her eyes from the rays with a pair of quirky round sunglasses.
Wendi was later seen strolling along the shore in the sunshine.
Wendi was Rupert’s third wife and mother of his youngest children.

She met Murdoch in 1997 when she got an internship at Star TV, the Hong Kong broadcaster then owned by his company News Corp.
The big boss had flown in to address the workforce, and legend has it that Deng broke ranks during a sycophantic question-and-answer session and asked one of the world’s most successful businessmen a critical question: “Why is your business strategy in China so bad? ‘
Murdoch, who was 66 at the time, was said to have been “blinded” by her.

In 1999, 17 days after divorcing Anna, his second wife after 32 years – mother of three of his children – he married Wendi on his yacht in New York.
British singer Charlotte Church was flown in to serenade the happy couple, and the media magnate gave a speech in which he promised to “take care of his new bride forever and ever,” according to a guest.
Wendi and Murdoch had two daughters – Grace and Chloe, born in 2001 and 2003 respectively.

The couple divorced in 2013 before Rupert married for a fourth time to former supermodel Jerry Hall, 66, in 2016 before splitting in 2022.
There have been various romantic liaisons over the years. In 2016, she was linked to then-30-year-old British violinist Charlie Siem after the couple attended Giambattista Valli’s fashion show in Paris. ‘Why not?’ she said, confirming they were on a date. “Am I supposed to be shy?”
Then, at age 48, she had a two-year affair with a then 21-year-old Hungarian model, Bertold Zahoran — a man 64 years younger than her ex-husband. They were spotted frolicking on the beaches of St Barts but that romance ended in 2018.

She even had to dismiss claims that she had a secret relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin, saying “I’ve never met him”; and dismissed claims that she was a spy for the Chinese government.
In December 2020, she was pictured in St Barts with another attractive younger man who has not been identified. As far as anyone knows, there is currently no man in her life.
“I’ve never seen Wendi with a male companion here in the social circle,” says New York publicist and gossip columnist R. Couri Hay. “She’s always been mysterious, but socially she’s become secretive.”
Wendi has described herself as an “entrepreneur, investor, film producer and art collector”.
Fashion is a huge passion and in 2015 she co-hosted the Met Gala, one of fashion’s big events. Around the time her ex married Jerry, Wendi was pictured at Paris Fashion Week with Vogue editor Anna Wintour.
