Biggest Social Climbers

  1. Melania Trump  (Husbands net worth – $ 10 billion)

 

2. Wendy Deng husband net worth $ 10 billion

Born in Jinan, Shandong, she was the third wife of News Corporation chairman and CEO Rupert Murdoch, who filed for divorce from her in June 2013.[4] Deng’s debut in the media came with Fox TV, and she was subsequently offered an internship at Star TV in Hong Kong, part of News Corporation.

In 1987 she met an American businessman and his wife, Jake and Joyce Cherry,[10] who had temporarily relocated to China and helped build a refrigerator factory.[10] She studied English with Joyce.[10] In 1988, she abandoned her medical studies and traveled to the United States to study, with Jake and Joyce Cherry sponsoring her student visa[10](Jake later became Deng’s first husband). She enrolled at California State University, Northridge, where she studied economics and was among the top students.[10][11] She received a bachelor’s degree in economics from California State University at Northridge and an MBA from the Yale School of Management.

When Deng was living with Jake and Joyce Cherry during Deng’s studies in the United States, Joyce Cherry discovered her husband, Jake, was having an affair with Deng, who was 30 years his junior, and demanded Deng leave the house. Jake Cherry soon followed and moved in with Deng,[10] and the two married in 1990.[9] Their marriage lasted 2 years 7 months before they were legally divorced,[10] but Jake would later explain they stayed together for only four or five months,[9] when he learned that Deng was spending time with David Wolf, a man closer to her age.[9] Nonetheless, she had been able to secure a green card through her marriage to Cherry.[9][10]

In 1997 she met Rupert Murdoch, who was 37 years her senior, while working as the only Chinese executive at the Murdoch-owned Star TV in Hong Kong.[20] They married in 1999[21] on board his yacht “Morning Glory”.[22] less than three weeks after the finalisation of his divorce from his second wife, Anna Murdoch. Following the marriage, she was branded a “gold digger” by sources close to Murdoch, including family members.[23][24][25] The couple had two children, Grace (born 2001) and Chloe (born 2003). Tony Blair is Grace Murdoch’s godfather.[26] In June 2013, Murdoch filed for divorce from Deng, citing irreconcilable differences.[4]

On February 5, 2014, The Daily Telegraph published a report claiming Deng had a crush on Tony Blair, leading to her divorce from Murdoch. The report stated that Murdoch began to hear rumors about his wife in 2012 and is said to have interviewed staff members at his various homes to ask them what they had seen. According to the newspaper, Murdoch learned that Blair had visited Deng at Murdoch’s Carmel ranch on more than one occasion. Blair allegedly spent the weekend of April 27, 2013, with Deng at the property. Other sources are quoted as placing Blair and Deng at The Carlyle in New York, on a private yacht, and at Murdoch’s home in London.[27] Deng’s letter to herself, in which she described her torment in missing Blair – published by Vanity Fair in February 2014 – raised speculation that there was more to Deng’s relationship with Blair than friendship.[28] It is this letter that was said to be the last straw for Murdoch to separate from his wife of 14 years, reports said.[29] As a result of Murdoch’s suspicion that Blair had an affair with Deng, he ended his long-standing association with Blair in 2014.[30]

In March 2016, Deng was alleged to have been in a relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin. However, no credible sources or proof of this claim exists.[31][32]

 

3. Anna Nicole Smith  husband net worth $ 1 billion

When Smith was only 24 years old she was just an unknown stripper struggling to get by; J. Howard Marshall, on the other hand, was a billionaire in the oil industry, and when the two met, she knew she had an opportunity that was too good to pass up: the only problem about Marshall was that he was darn near 90 years old at the time.

It was pretty obvious to Marshall’s family what Smith’s true intentions were with their relationship, and unsurprisingly he passed away less than a year after the two tied the knot. After a long legal battle regarding Howard’s estate, Smith won a significant portion of the money, but not the $800 million that she thought she was entitled to. Smith went on to become an actress, model, and spokesperson for weight loss supplements, before passing away at the age of 39 from a drug overdose. Apparently when you can afford as many drugs as you want it becomes a bit more difficult controlling your urges: be careful what you wish for, Anna.
