Billionaire bachelor Rupert Murdoch may be in the market for a fourth wife. The 82-year-old mogul escorted Kleiner Perkins partner Juliet de Baubigny to Vanity Fair's Oscar party last night, posing for photos with his arm around the 44-year-old Silicon Valley investor.
The Daily Mail described de Baubigny as both Murdoch's "young blonde companion" and "pal," noting that the ladies love Uncle Rupert:
But the venture capitalist was not the only woman surrounding Murdoch at the party on Sunday night.
Murdoch was surrounded by a flurry of young women at the Hollywood party.
The pair were alongside Tinseltown's A-list on Sunday night in Los Angeles, from Bruce Willis, to Sofia Vergara and Adam Levine, to name a few.
Juliet de Baubigny recently appeared in British Vogue as part of an "alpha trio" of "Swags," short for Silicon Wives and Girlfriends. (Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer and One Kings Lane founder Alison Pincus rounded out the triumvirate.) Vogue put de Baubigny squarely in the "wife" column, noting the $3 million home she shared in Atherton with her husband Andre de Baubigny Jr., an investment banker turned venture capitalist, and their two kids.
However records from San Mateo County Superior Court state that the de Baubignys "marital status ending date" was February, 27, 2012. She filed a petition for the dissolution of their marriage in April 7, 2011, not long after describing the hourly details of trying to "do it all" for her friend Gwenyth Paltrow's newsletter in 2010.
Question is: are VCs good with a pie block?
