Silicon Valley power couple split after 6 years
August 31 , 2013
A rep for Google's co-founder, Sergey Brin said he and his wife have been living apart for a number of months.
Although, the couple are not legally separated, the situation gets more complicated. Brin's wife said he is romantically involved with a Google employee and it has "many business implications".
The problem is not related to Brin's fortune, which mostly takes the form of Google stock. It is his rumored affair that can result in employee issues such as favoritism or being forced into the relationship.
Another complicated aspect of the news is the fact that the woman allegedly in a relationship with Brin was previously involved with top exec Hugo Barra of Google. He is now leaving the company.
