Elaine Andriejanssen’s Net Worth Compared To Her Husband’s $9.2 Billion
Elaine Andriejanssen’s career is no doubt doing well, and she is also from a family of investors. However, her net worth has never been reviewed to show how much she earns and her bottom line. She prefers to keep a low profile on her financial status.
On the other hand, her husband is worth a whopping $9.2 billion, a fortune believed to have been accrued from his part ownership of one of the most popular social media platforms. Elaine’s husband, Eduardo Saverin, is one of the people who started Facebook. He met Mark Zuckerberg during their junior year at Harvard. From there, they actualized a dream of starting a social media networking service for the school in 2004, but the project has grown so big to cover the world.
Saverin owned 53 million Facebook shares valued at $2 billion in 2012. This was approximately 2% of all outstanding shares in the company at the time. As a co-founder of Facebook, he worked in the capacity of chief financial officer and business manager. However, his working relationship with Mark Zuckerberg gradually went sour, and the business partners went through bouts of lawsuits to settle their differences and later settled out of court on a confidential basis.
Eduardo Saverin has also founded other companies, including Aporta, an online portal for charity which he co-founded. B Capital is his capital firm which he established in 2015 and has continued to grow in the stock market.
How Long Has Elaine Andriejanssen Been Eduardo Saverin’s Wife?
It is common knowledge that Elaine Andriejanssen and Eduardo Saverin were college sweethearts before they got married. While they didn’t go to the same school – Elaine was at Tufts while Eduardo was a Harvard student when they met, but their schools are both located in Massachusetts.
The couple began dating as students and got engaged on March 27, 2014. The couple had their engagement party a year after, at the Mulia, Mulia Resort & Villas in Bali, with John Legend singing the piano ballad of his ‘All Of Me’ at the event. After dating for many years and staying engaged for one year, the longtime couple tied the knot on June 25, 2015. Their wedding took place on the French Riviera, the French Mediterranean coast.
Their wedding, though lavish, was a private affair. The details were not publicized, and guests had to wait till the last minute to get the details.
The Couple Has a Son and Resides in Singapore
The 8-year-old marriage has produced one child, a son the couple welcome on an undisclosed date. Elaine and Eduardo are known to value their privacy a lot and have extended it to their children. Thus, nothing is known about the identity of their child or what he has been up to.
The family currently resides in Singapore, where Eduardo has business interests. They settled down in Singapore after Eduardo Saverin renounced his U.S. citizenship in September 2011 to enable him to focus on his business deals in Singapore.
The move raised eyebrows as Saverin was accused of tax evasion as he avoided paying about $700 million in capital gain tax after renouncing his American citizenship. He, however, denied this claim, saying he only wants to live and work in Singapore.
Elaine Andriejanssen’s Husband was Allegedly Set to Marry Miss Singapore
The rumor mill found Eduardo Saverin with claims that he was set to marry Miss Singapore Rachel Klum in 2009. It was further reported that he invested in Klum’s makeup company known as Rachel K Cosmetics. The gossip spread through the Page Six website and Brazilian gossip site Glamurama, but Page Six came out to say the report was an error.
Also, Mr. Tom Goodman, Eduardo Saverin’s spokesman, stated that the purported relationship between the Brazilian-born businessman and Miss Singapore never happened, and no marriage was impending. “He has never dated Miss Singapore and never invested in her company. He is not marrying her.”
The rumor has since fizzled out, with Elaine and Eduardo going ahead to get married and start a family. It doesn’t look like there was any negative effect on their relationship following reports that Eduardo was marrying another woman.
