“I do have a Bentley. I do go out.”
It’s no surprise that Eduardo Severin owns a Bentley. The Brazilian Internet entrepreneur’s wealth is estimated at $5 Billion (that’s roughly 16,000 brand new 2015 Bentleys). Although his wealth is only 16% of what it could have been, at one point it looked like Severin might lose everything.
Severin is said to have been a 33% Facebook shareholder at one time. You may recognize the name Eduardo from the movie “The Social Network” (Mark Zuckerberg’s college roommate). After disputes with Zuckerberg and the addition of a group of new investors, Severin was pushed out of Facebook ownership completely. That is, until Severin took the dispute to court and won. With the help of his shareholder dispute attorney, Severin was able to win back 5% share of the company.
