82-year-old billionaire and News Corporation CEO Rupert Murdoch has been thinking about death lately. Over the weekend he wondered, on Twitter: “Can we all live to 120 or more? Probably not, but our children for sure.” It looks like Murdoch’s taking his chances.

Are Asian co-eds the real reason this network comedian likes to tour colleges? We've heard multiple accounts of this TV funnyman romping with girls he picks up on college campuses—and getting a little raunchy with the play-by-play.

Three young men, to be exact, according to the source. They were all "summoned" to the mogul's apartment for some downlow fun.
