Texas investors may have heard that Sergei Brin, the co-founder of Google, has officially divorced his wife of eight years. A judge in Santa Clara County approved the divorce settlement in May 2015. The couple first separated in 2013 and, around that time, Brin was having an affair with an employee who worked in the Google Glass division.
The couple continues to live close to each other and are raising their two children in a cooperative fashion. It was reported that Brin and his ex-wife had a prenuptial agreement in place, which means that the divorce shouldn't impact Google significantly. Brin is estimated to have a net worth of $30 billion. His former wife is the founder and CEO of a human genome startup, and Google was an early investor in the company.
