San Francisco - Google co-founder Sergey Brin has separated from his wife of six years Anne Wojcocki, US media reports said on Wednesday.
“Anne and Sergey have been living apart for several months. They remain good friends and partners,” the San Jose Mercury News quoted a spokesperson for the couple as saying.
Brin, who according to Forbes magazine is worth more than 22 billion dollars, is a highly influential figure at the web software giant, even though his co-founder Larry Page has more formal authority as the CEO of the company.
Brin and Wojcocki, both 40, married in 2007 and have two children together. According to the Mercury News and the website that first reported the split, All Things D, they signed a pre-nuptial agreement that will limit the financial impact of the separation. - Sapa-dpa
