According to the publication, billionaire friends Brin and Musk quarreled on the grounds of betrayal. Allegedly, the latter had a secret, intimate relationship with Nicole Shanahan, the wife of Google co-founder in 2021. And this, in turn, led to the divorce of the Brins couple earlier this year. Moreover, Sergey has withdrawn almost all of his assets from Musk's companies over the past six months. In particular, in 2008, he invested $ 500 thousand in Tesla.
The romance between Shanahan and Musk began at the Art Basel Festival in Miami. Then the richest man on the planet ended his relationship with his previous girlfriend, singer Grimes. And Shanahan lived separately from Brin. Their relationship cracked during the pandemic, they agreed to break up for a while, but they did not plan to divorce.
However, after the affair was revealed, Sergei did not hesitate to file for divorce. Now he ranks tenth in the ranking of the richest people on the planet with a fortune of $ 90 billion. The ex-wife, as alimony for the upbringing of their common daughter, demanded to pay her a billion dollars through the court. It also became known that Musk desperately tried to reconcile with Brin after the incident and even knelt in front of him at one of the parties, begging for forgiveness, but he was adamant.
