The contents of a secret note said to have  been written by Wendi Deng about Tony Blair have been ‘revealed’ for the first  time, with the businesswoman detailing her love of the former prime minister’s  ‘piercing blue eyes’ and sexy legs.

In the note, according to a report in a US  magazine, 45-year-old Ms Deng described the former Labour leader as ‘so  charming’, having ‘really good legs’ and loving his ‘power on stage’.

She also described him as having a ‘good  body’.

Ms Deng’s 14-year marriage to Rupert Murdoch  ended last year, amid reports that she had met with Mr Blair without his  knowledge.

The existence of the note was revealed last  year by The Mail On Sunday, however, what is said to be its contents was made  public today by Vanity Fair magazine.

It was found after the media  tycoon learned Mr Blair, who has been  married to barrister and part-time judge Cherie since 1980, had spent weekends  at his homes. Mr Murdoch later filed for divorce from Ms Deng.

The note, believed to have been written by Ms  Deng, read: ‘Whatever why I’m so so  missing Tony.  Because he is so so charming and his clothes are so good. He has  such  good body and he has really really good legs Butt… And he is slim  tall  and good skin. Pierce blue eyes which I love. Love his eyes. Also I love his  power on the stage… and what else and what else and what  else…’

According to Vanity Fair, the note could have  been used as evidence had Mr Murdoch and Ms Deng’s divorce in November last year  come to court.

A spokesman denied an affair between Ms Deng  and Mr Blair saying the pair were never more than friends.

Friends have also maintained that the  relationship between Mr Blair and Ms Deng is entirely innocent.

Mr Murdoch and Ms Deng married in 1999, when  she was 30 and he was 68, and Mr Blair is the godfather of Grace Murdoch, now  12, the eldest of the couple’s two daughters.

Some close to Mr Murdoch have claimed he felt  ‘betrayed’ at the friendship between his wife and his long-term friend, and that  it had ‘hurt’ finding out Mr Blair had been in his homes without telling  him.

Staff at Mr Murdoch’s Californian cattle  ranch claimed Mr Blair and Miss Deng twice stayed overnight on the same weekends  in October 2012 and April last year.

In October Ms Deng had told her husband she  was having a weekend with her female friends at the ranch, although just one  friend, self-help author Kathy Freston, went – only to leave early, according to  the magazine.

Mr Blair then reportedly arrived at the ranch  on the Sunday, and when Mr Murdoch spoke to Mr Blair on another matter the  following week, he had not mentioned that he had seen Ms Deng.

Mr Murdoch bought the 1,000 acre ranch in the  early 1990s with a previous wife Anna, and it is now owned through a trust by  daughters Grace and Chloe, 10.

Ms Deng and Mr Blair also stayed overnight at  Mr Murdoch’s home in Los Angeles and met in London and New York.

Mr Blair formed a close alliance with Mr  Murdoch during his time as Labour leader. Mr Murdoch’s News UK company publishes  The Times and The Sun newspapers.

The Sun dramatically switched its support  from the Conservatives to Labour with just six weeks to go before the 1997  general election.

Mr Murdoch’s support was seen as crucial to  the following three elections, which kept the Labour leader in Downing Street  from 1997 to 2007.

Mr Murdoch has reportedly refused to speak to  Mr Blair since his divorce.

It is claimed that Mr Murdoch had heard  rumours that his wife was having affairs via his staff, who were then asked to  start keeping tabs on Ms Deng – providing Mr Murdoch with details of meetings  between Ms Deng and Mr Blair.

‘They were all mutual friends; there  was no  reason Mr Murdoch wouldn’t have welcomed Mr Blair into his home,’ a person who  had worked at one of Mr Murdoch’s homes told Vanity Fair.

‘But one day Mr Blair arrived and Mrs Murdoch  was sort of being very  flirtatious. She was charming him. He asked the staff,  “When is Mr  Murdoch going to arrive?” And when he was told, “Tomorrow night,”  Mr.  Blair rolled his eyes and gave a panicked look.’

Representatives for Mr Blair, Ms Deng and Mr  Murdoch have all been approached for comment.
