They're either the world's newest power couple or the best prank story of April Fools' Day.

Us Weekly is reporting that Rupert Murdoch's ex-wife, Wendi Deng, is currently dating Russian president Vladimir Putin.

Rumors have "been floating around for years" since Putin's 2014 divorce from then-wife Lyudmila Putina, according to the report. The pair share two daughters -- Maria, 30, and Yekaterina, 29.

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.
