There's word today that News Corp. CEO Rupert Murdoch has filed for divorce from his wife, Wendi Deng, citing a breakdown in the relationship.

In happier times, Wendi Deng showed a clear willingness to stand by her man when, during a 2011 hearing on the British tabloid phone hacking scandal, a protester attempted to throw a custard pie at Rupert.

As this video shows, Deng (in the pink blazer) took a swat at the attempted pie-thrower.

The couple are parents to two daughters, Grace and Chloe, ages 11 and 9.
