Putin’s Elena Zhukova - Rupert Murdoch hosts secret wedding as he eyes trip home

Tomáš Zeman🇸🇰🇨🇿🇵🇱🇪🇺🇺🇦🇩🇪🇺🇸@zemantomas· 
Da, Da, Rupert Murdoch did it again. Rupert married 67 year old Elena Zhukova who's mother of 42 year old Dasha Zhukova, ex-wife of Roman Abramovich, a Russian oligarch. He met her at party of his ex-wife Wendi Deng - Putin's girlfriend?


The media mogul, 93, and retired molecular biologist, 67, tied the knot after a few months of dating.

Murdoch has previously been wed four times, most recently to Jerry Hall, which lasted from 2016 to 2022.

In a recent DailyMail article, Deng’s connection to Zhukova was drawn through her daughter Dasha, a “Russian socialite” who was formerly married to “Russian oligarch and former Chelsea FC owner Roman Abramovich”.

According to the outlet, Deng and Dasha are allegedly “great friends” in New York, with a source telling the DailyMail: “They met through Wendi and Dasha.”

Zhukova is said to have left Russia in 1991 with her daughter for America, where she has resided for more than 30 years. During her career, she was a molecular biologist and diabetes specialist performing medical research at the University of California Los Angeles. She has been married and divorced twice, according to the outlet.

Elena Zhukova is a retired scientist, 66, who is rumoured to be dating media mogul Rupert Murdoch, 92. Murdoch entered into a new relationship with the retired scientist, months after abruptly calling off his engagement with Ann Lesley Smith, Independent reported.

Molecular biologist Elena Zhukova, 66, spent her career at the University of California, Los Angeles’ medical research division before retiring. She is the mother of Dasha Zhukova, a socialite and art collector. Dasha married Roman Abramovich, a former owner of Chelsea FC, from 2008 to 2017, according to the Telegraph.

After leaving her native country Russia in 1991 with her daughter, Elena Zhukova, an expert in diabetes, has devoted more than three decades of her life making a name for herself in America. She has made major contributions to the field of medical research during her career, including a noteworthy stay at the renowned medical research division at UCLA.

It happened so quickly and quietly almost nobody noticed. This weekend, Rupert Murdoch got hitched for the fifth time, to retired molecular biologist Elena Zhukova. Congrats, Rupert!

Guests were papped arriving at the 14-acre Moraga family vineyard in Bel Air, Los Angeles. They included New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft and his wife Dana Blumberg, and News Corp chief executive Robert Thomson and his wife Wang Ping. Presumably there were more, but after the spectacle of the 2016 nuptials to Jerry Hall, who could begrudge the family for opting for the low-key option.
