Andy Rubin made headlines last year after a New York Times article detailed sexual misconduct allegations against him.
Rubin received a $90 million exit package at the time, despite what Google believed to be credible allegations.
Google employees, horrified by the situation, staged a mass walkout worldwide, demanding a change in Google policy regarding sexual harassment.
Now, The Verge has some insight into how Rubin deals with the other women in his life.
Turns out his creepiness has no bounds.
Android co-founder Andy Rubin has been accused of cheating his wife out of millions through a prenuptial agreement obtained under false pretenses, according to documents unsealed in connection with a related case.
The documents — first unearthed by BuzzFeed’s Ryan Mac — allege that Rubin forced his wife Rie Hirabaru Rubin into the prenuptial agreement just weeks before she was scheduled to give birth to their child, negotiating specific terms until three days before the couple’s city hall wedding. The lawsuit seeks to annul that agreement, which resulted in Rie being cut out of much of the wealth Andy obtained from Google and his later Essential project.
The document has not yet been confirmed by the court, but repeats a number of details reported by The New York Times last October, including the allegation that Andy supported a string of mistresses, who would often be loaned to other men.
In a civil suit filed this month by Mr. Rubin’s ex-wife, Rie Rubin, she claimed he had multiple “ownership relationships” with other women during their marriage, paying hundreds of thousands of dollars to them. The couple were divorced in August.
The suit included a screenshot of an August 2015 email Mr. Rubin sent to one woman. “You will be happy being taken care of,” he wrote. “Being owned is kinda like you are my property, and I can loan you to other people.”
This is starting to sound like the Nxivm sex cult.
Back to The Verge for more on how he’s cheating his ex-wife out of her share of the money:
The central claim of the complaint is a breach of duty by Rie’s lawyer, which could invalidate the agreement if affirmed by the court. According to the complaint, her lawyer had represented Andy in a previous divorce, presenting a significant conflict of interest that Andy allegedly concealed from Rie.
As a result, Andy was allegedly able to exclude significant portions of his wealth from the prenuptial agreement, including holdings that appear to result from Microsoft’s acquisition of Sidekick manufacturer Danger, where Rubin was a co-founder. According to the plaintiffs, that conflict of interest and the broader irregularities should render the agreement invalid.
Major creep behaviour.
