Former D.C. mayor Adrian Fenty and his ‘budding romance’ with Laurene Powell Jobs, widow of Steve Jobs

“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.”

  1. This is disgusting…leave it to another lying politician to separate a fool from her money. Would someone please tell Laurene to wake up and get out of fantasyland?

    1. The soon to be ex-Mrs. Fenty is quite beautiful and I’m sure she won’t have any problem finding another guy. As a female, I am shocked that Lauren Jobs would even look at a guy like Fenty. Wonder what his agenda is all about. As far as Lauren Powell-Jobs I am utterly shocked and disappointed reading this news. For goodness sake, to go from Steve Jobs and he was not perfect by any means to this ugly gap-toothed guy leaves me wondering is she not aware that the world is her oyster and there are plenty of better looking and probably nicer guys around black or white?

        1. No, but Steve Jobs was very handsome. I also added Nice. I was married and widowed to a very handsome and Nice guy and 10 years later met a very handsome and very nice guy. This is simply my humble opinion. Lets be honest, good looks attract but there definitely has to be more substance than only looks. I still believe if the rumor is true, she can do a heck of a lot better than this guy.

    1. Besides, should we automatically believe this is a “romance” because a gossip columnist at the Washington Post says so?

      Either way, she is a consenting adult with every right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of a penis.
