Rumors swirled in March that Deng Murdoch was linked to the Russian president, according to Us Weekly. 

“One insider close to the powerful lead tells Us Weekly the relationship is ‘serious’,” the magazine wrote. 

But the two have not been photographed together and in late July, Deng Murdoch denied she was dating the Russian leader, telling Vogue she had “never met Putin.”
