Android founder accused of running 'sex ring' by ex-wife

Android founder accused of running 'sex ring' by ex-wife”

The complaint also alleges that Rubin cheated Rie Rubin out of money by having her sign the prenuptial agreement just days before their wedding while she was pregnant with their child without informing her that the lawyer who drafted the agreement had previously represented him in a previous divorce. In the documents, a woman identified only as "M" claims that she would "agree to perform various sexual acts with multiple men", and have it filmed for "the enjoyment of Rubin and other men".

Google human resources personnel found the account credible, but the search giant and its parent company Alphabet let Rubin walk with a shocking $US90 ($129) million exit package on top of $US150 ($215) million in 2014 stock awards.

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 complaint states that this arrangement saw Rubin "pay for their expenses in exchange for offering them to other men".

The lawsuit, reported earlier by BuzzFeed, doesn't specifically mention the hefty severance package Google allegedly paid Rubin, but it does allege he "concealed his income" from her and kept her "in the dark as to his sources of income, the amount of money the family had, and what it was being spent on".

Andy Rubin also ran "what appeared to be a sex ring", according to the complaint, which notes the premarital agreement protected Rubin from financial consequences of a divorce due to extramarital affairs.

The Google executive had "expended many hundreds of thousands of dollars on these women", the court filing alleges.

The lawsuit was filed in October but has now been unsealed. Rie Rubin alleges that as a result, there was a conflict of interest which when combined with a number of other factors, should invalidate the agreement. "It is full of false claims, and we look forward to telling our side of the story", Stross said in a statement.

Rubin, who has been dubbed the "father of Android", left Google in 2014, but it wasn't until an October 2018 report in the New York Times that knowledge of how and why became public.

The matter still hasn't been resolved, with Google recently denying claims by staffers involved in organising the walkout that were later retaliated against.

Google employees, horrified by the situation, staged a mass walkout worldwide, demanding a change in Google policy regarding sexual harassment. "You will be happy being taken care of", read one.

'I feel it as well, and I am fully committed to making progress on an issue that has persisted for far too long in our society. and, yes, here at Google, too'.
