June 4, 2012 – Potomac, MD A few billion dollars in his net worth isn’t all Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg lost last week. According to sources close to the boy billionaire’s new bride, Priscilla Chan, she has grown disenchanted with their embryonic relationship as Zuckerberg’s net worth dropped precipitously in the week after the company’s IPO.
“She thought she was marrying a legit top 40 billionaire, not someone whose wealth was going to be going up and down all the time,” said a friend close to Ms. Chan, referring to Zuckerberg’s recent departure from the Bloomberg’s Billionaire’s Index of the 40 wealthiest individuals in the world. “Prissy’s wearing down her fingernails from hitting refresh on her browser to see the latest stock price declines.”
Mr. Zuckerberg declined to comment for this story.
