Trouble in Silicon Valley paradise: Sergey Brin, the Google co-founder worth $22.8 billion, has split from Anne Wojcicki, his wife of six years, mother of his two children, and founder of personal genome deciphering company 23 and Me. The cause: Brin is reportedly dating Google Glass marketing manager Amanda Rosenberg, the human responsible for the robotic phrase "OK, Glass."

The pair was photographed together at New York fashion week back in September 2012 when they collaborated with Diane von Furstenberg to integrate Glass into her Spring 2013 fashion show. Rosenberg, who sports a purple ombre hairstyle, is muse to Isabelle Olsson, the industrial designer behind Glass, according to her Google+ page. Olsson posted photos of Glass tortoiseshell frames she says she designed for Rosenberg.

Wojcicki and Brin had a pre-nup, but the couple is involved in a slew of businesses and philanthropic ventures that will need to be sorted out if they divorce. OK guys, brace yourselves for some stuff for which you'll want to have Glass firmly in the "off" position.
