It's been three months since Fox media mogul Rupert Murdoch slipped the surly bonds of matrimonial discord with Wendi Deng, ceding her custody of their two children and Fifth Avenue triplex. Lesser men might buckle under the ennui now. Murdoch bought a sick fucking condo.
The four-story penthouse apartment cost Murdoch $57.25 million dollars, or roughly one dollar for every child on Earth who lacks access to basic education.
Via the New York Times:
Mr. Murdoch's new apartment will be on the 57th through 60th floors of One Madison, a building near Madison Square Park. The owner of the building, Related Companies, said in a statement announcing the sale — without naming Mr. Murdoch as the buyer — that the apartment encompassed more than 10,000 square feet. The residence "offers a soaring double-height great room with dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows and a wraparound terrace, with uninterrupted cinematic views of Manhattan, river to river and from the World Trade Center to the uptown tip of Madison Avenue," Related said.

Oh, and the views? They're okay.
The top three floors are in "raw condition," according to the seller. Also, his neighbors will include Tom Brady and Giselle Bündchen. In other words, there will be sexy raw Uggs bachelor parties. And look at that main room ceiling: plenty of space to hang a fair and balanced Papa Rupert sex swing. Yowza. Look out, eligible open-minded ladies of Madison Square!
