“Chrisann Brennan first met Steve Jobs in 1972, while they were both students at Homestead HS in Cupertino, Calif. Over the next five years, they dated off and on throughout their teens and early 20s. The two were living together with their friend Daniel Kottke, a computer engineer and one of the earliest employees of Apple, in 1977, when the company took off,” Kate Storey reports for The New York Post. “The two finally ended their romantic relationship for good in late 1977, after Brennan became pregnant with their daughter, Lisa. Brennan worked as a waitress and collected welfare checks to support herself and their baby daughter.”
“Jobs publicly denied he was Lisa’s father for years, even though he took a paternity test in 1979 proving he was the dad,” Storey reports. “He was paying $500 a month in child support when he told TIME magazine in 1983, ’28 percent of the male population in the United States could be the father.'”
“Today, Brennan is a painter and graphic designer living in Monterey, Calif., and Lisa [Brennan-Jobs] is a Harvard-educated journalist,” Storey reports. “In an exclusive excerpt from Brennan’s first-person tale, The Bite in the Apple: A Memoir of My Life With Steve Jobs (on sale Oct. 29), she describes her frustrating, difficult and passionate years with the business visionary.”
