Rupert Murdoch close to finalizing divorce - report
Nov 19 (Reuters) - Rupert Murdoch, the chairman of News Corp and 21st Century Fox, and his wife of 14 years, Wendi Deng Murdoch, are close to settling their divorce, according to a report in the New York Times.
They are scheduled to appear on Wednesday at New York State Supreme Court in Manhattan. A clerk for the court confirmed to Reuters a preliminary conference for the Murdochs is scheduled on Wednesday.
William Zabel, an attorney for Deng, and Ira Garr, a lawyer for Murdoch, did not immediately return calls for comment.
Murdoch filed for divorce from Deng in June seeking to end a marriage that had been irretrievably broken. Murdoch and Deng had a prenuptial agreement and the New York Times cited people close to Murdoch who described the settlement negotiations as amicable.
