Sergey Briinco-founder of Alphabet (array of Google) and the seventh richest person in the world, divorces his wife, Nicole Shanahanafter just over two years of marriage and with whom he has a daughter in common.
Brin, according to several media outlets, submitted the request to the court last January, alleging “irreconcilable differences”, something that had not transpired until now.
the billionaire co-founded Google with Larry Page in 1998 after meeting at Stanford University while studying for advanced degrees in computer science.
Google was unveiled in 2004 and began trading as Alphabet, a newly created parent company, in 2015.
In December 2019, the businessman resigned from the presidency of the company. However, he remains a shareholder and is a member of the board of directors.
And his fortune?
The co-founder of Google has a real-time net worth of 89.5 billion dollars (about 85,000 million euros), a figure that would have almost doubled since 2018, according to estimates by the US version of FORBES.
The seventh richest person in the world has been climbing positions in the ranking: in 2018 had a wealth of 47,500 million dollars (45,055 million euros), an amount that more or less maintained the following two years (49,800 million and 49,100 million in 2019 and 2020, respectively).

However, unlike Bill Gates or Jeff Bezos, who announced their breakups on Twitter, Brin has not commented on anything publicly, so it is unknown how the distribution will take place. In fact, in his divorce petition, revealed by Insider, requests that details be kept secretciting in particular the risks to his daughter, including potential kidnapping.
“The plaintiff is a co-founder of Google and one of the richest and most famous technology entrepreneurs in the world. Due to the high profile of their relationship, there is likely to be a significant public interest in their dissolution case and in any potential child custody issues,” indicates the request filed in a court in the town of Santa Clara, in the State. from California (USA) collected by The country.
Brin, 48, was married to biologist Anne Wojcickicon, co-founder of 23andMe, for eight years. They divorced in 2015, although they had been separated since 2013, and they have two children together.
The billionaire left the family home after his infidelity with a young Google executive, Amanda Rosenberg, but there were no repercussions on the shareholding of the company because before getting married both signed a prenuptial agreement.
It is to be expected that Brin and Shanahan also have a previous agreement that regulates the conditions of the rupture, which in any case will be multimillionaire.
“All questions relating to the property rights or obligations of the parties shall be determined by confidential and binding arbitration, in accordance with a written agreement between the parties,” reads one of the documents filed with the court and cited by Insider.
