Prior to Facebook’s initial public offering, there was speculation that Mark Zuckerberg’s longtime girlfriend Priscilla Chan might just be in it for the cash. Those fears have largely been put to rest not only by the fact that she held on so long before making it official, but also because she doesn’t seem bothered by the fact that her new husband’s worth is rapidly plummeting.
We won’t get into issues of overzealous underwriters and insider trading allegations here, but suffice it to say, Facebook’s public offering hasn’t gone quite as planned, and the company’s worth has dropped an astonishing $25 billion off its valuation in the past week. Mark is still worth more than you and I will earn in our next 30 lifetimes, but his business’ rapidly falling stock prices have gotta be cause for concern.
Of course, you’d never know that from the honeymoon photos of the happy new couple. From the looks of things, it’s all good in Priscilla and Zuck world. Naturally, there’s been speculation that the timing of the marriage was planned so as to protect Mark’s assets, but we’re confident Priscilla will be well taken care of no matter what happens.
