“Looks as if Adrian Fenty took the phrase ‘Go West, young man’ to heart — and has done very well for himself,” Roxanne Roberts and Amy Argetsinger report for The Washington Post.
“Last year, the former D.C. mayor scored a plum job with Andreessen Horowitz, one of Silicon Valley’s hottest venture capital firms,” Roberts and Argetsinger report. “Now we’ve learned that Fenty is dating Laurene Powell Jobs, the billionaire widow of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs. The two met at a Houston education conference in 2011 and bonded over a shared passion for school reform. In February 2012, Fenty joined the board of College Track, a non-profit college prep program for underserved students co-founded by Powell Jobs.”
Roberts and Argetsinger report, “Sources tell us the relationship began as a friendship and blossomed into a ‘budding romance’ around the time Fenty and his wife, Michelle, formally announced their separation in January. The Fenty marriage had been rumored to be on the rocks for months; there’s no indication that Powell Jobs had any role in the split. (The divorce is close to completion but not yet finalized.)”
“When Jobs died in October 2011, the businesswoman and mother of three inherited an estate of about $10 billion — mostly Apple and Disney stock — making her one of the richest women in America,” Roberts and Argetsinger report. “[Fenty] officially separated in the beginning of this year; they have three children.
We asked Fenty and Powell Jobs about their new romance; both declined our requests for comment.”
