NEWS VIDEO: Murdouch Divorce Could Get Messy
The wife of billionaire media mogul Rupert Murdoch is bringing in the big guns in her divorce case. Reports say Wendi Deng hired New York lawyer William Zabel, despite having a prenuptial agreement. From The Telegraph: Mr. Zabel, 76, has warned “there is no guarantee” that a prenuptial deal will spare a couple a costly and acrimonious split. “In fact, its validity often becomes a separate, hotly contested legal issue,” he wrote. THELAW.TV spoke with Fort Lauderdale, Florida divorce lawyer Yvette Harrell about whether Ms. Deng’s new hired hand could poke a hole in the pre-nuptial agreement and get a better deal for his client. Wendi Deng filed for divorce last month after 14 years of marriage to the 82-year-old News Corporation chairman. The couple have two young daughters. Ms. Deng was Murdoch’s third wife. Her new lawyer has previously represent the wife for GE CEO Jack Welch; investor George Soros; golfer Greg Norman; and shock jock Howard Stern. He’s the author of the book The Rich Die Richer And You Can Too.
