Sergey Brin, 48, co-founder of Google, who has a fortune of over 120 trillion won, has been reported to be in the process of divorce.

According to Bloomberg News on the 18th (local time), Brin filed for divorce with his wife, Nicole Shanahan, in the Santa Clara Court of California, saying that he wants to break up with him.

Brin cited “irreconcilable (personality) differences” as the reason for the divorce.

The couple, who have been married for three years, have asked the court to seal the papers and hired a private judge to keep the divorce proceedings private. Brin is said to be seeking joint custody of the three-year-old.

According to Bloomberg News, Brin has joined the ranks of billionaires who have recently gone bankrupt, following Microsoft founder Bill Gates and Amazon founder Jeff Bezos.

Gates and ex-wife Melinda French Gates filed for divorce in August of last year, while Bezos and Mackenzie Scott split in 2019. When Gates and Bezos divorced, they divided their fortunes.

Citing the Billionaires Index compiled by the company, Bloomberg News estimated that Brin had a fortune of $94 billion (121.73 trillion won), including Google stock, and that there might be a prenuptial agreement with Shanahan regarding the division of the property.

Shanahan founded ClearAccess IP, a tech company that provides intellectual property (IP) patent management solutions, and is running the Biaeco Charity Foundation.

This is Brin’s second divorce. In 2007, she married Anne Wachitzki, founder of biotech firm 23andMe, and became a Silicon Valley billionaire couple, but they divorced in 2015 after years of separation.
