The 63-year-old was previously rumored to have dated Russian gymnast Alina Kabaeva, but reports of Putin being with Deng began to swirl this week after Deng was spotted on their mutual friend Roman Abramovich's yacht in St. Bart's.

Deng, 47, was married to billionaire media mogul Rupert Murdoch for 14 years before it ended in 2013 amid rumors she had a fling with former Prime Minister of Great Britain Tony Blair.

The successful business woman made headlines in 2011 when she viciously attacked a man who attempted to hit her then-husband and News Corporation CEO in the face with a pie while in Parliament.

Murdoch has since married former-model Jerry Hall.

Russia's President Vladimir Putin caresses a Persian leopard cub as he visits the Persian leopard breeding and rehabilitation centre in the National Park in the Black Sea resort of Sochi, on February 4, 2014. A leopard was announced in 2011 to be one of the official mascots of the 2014 Sochi Winter Games. Perhaps the most important vote in Russia's public selection of a new Olympic mascot was cast when Vladimir Putin said he wanted a funky leopard to represent the 2014 Sochi Winter Games.
