William Zabel, an attorney for Deng, and Ira Garr, a lawyer for Murdoch, did not immediately return calls for comment.

Murdoch filed for divorce from Deng in June seeking to end a marriage that had been irretrievably broken. Murdoch and Deng had a prenuptial agreement and the New York Times cited people close to Murdoch who described the settlement negotiations as amicable.
