His wife, Wendi, as she will tell me in an interview in 2007 – as she was finishing decorating the apartment-finds his tightness particularly laughable and, in a sense, endearing. “His whole family like this. They so cheap. When he ordered the boat” – the 183—foot sailboat Rosehearty– “he worried,” she will relate in a Chinese accent as pronounced as his Australian one, “people think it’s too extravagant, too much money. I said, “Rupert, don’t worry. All our friends like Tom Perkins or David Geffen, they have like this huge ship, I don’t think you’re extravagant. Your boat is not as spectacular.”
