Amanda Kerr and Evan Spiegel

Miranda Kerr and her billionaire boyfriend, Snapchat founder Evan Spiegel, 25, have reportedly purchased $12.5 million dollar estate in Brentwood, CA.

The  7,100 square foot gated estate on almost an acre of  land.  The main house has 4 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, a pool and a home gym.

The home was designed by Gerard Colcard one of the most famous architects in California history.

The 33-year-old model – who has five-year-old son Flynn with ex-husband Orlando Bloom – has been dating the Snapchat founder since June 2015.

More about Evan Spiegel

He met his Snapchat co-founders at a frat party

Evan Spiegel didn’t form the foundations of the Snapchat team at an electronics club or math department meet, but a frat party.

A party-loving member of Stanford University’s Kappa Sigma fraternity, Spiegel formed what would eventually become Snapchat with the aid of fellow frat brothers Bobby Murphy and Reggie Brown.

2. He’s a university dropout!

Joining the same club as Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg and Steve Jobs, in 2012 Evan dropped out of Stanford and his course in Product Design.

Despite being a frat house favorite, he failed to graduate, quitting college just a few credits short of earning his degree.

The tech protégée’s exit wasn’t due to academic challenges, however, but a move that allowed him to completely focus on Snapchat and its growing success.

3. He’s currently the 931st richest man in the world!

Evan Spiegel, 25,  has a reported net worth of $2.1 billion.  This makes him the 931st richest man in the world.

4. His first app was a flop!

Despite Snapchat’s phenomenal global success – the company reportedly has close to 200 million users – it hasn’t always been sunshine and lollipops for Evan’s app efforts.

 5. He turned down $3 billion from Facebook!

In 2013 Evan Spiegel turned down a huge sum of money from social giant Facebook.

Zuckerberg’s team was willing to front $3 billion to acquire Snapchat,. Spiegel reportedly gave them the runaround before turning down the sizeable bid.

6. He got the set director from Friends to help redecorate his house!

Evan Spiegel is the son of two high-profile and hugely successful lawyers. When his parents divorced in his late teens, Evan originally opted to live in a new house with his father. Poppa Spiegel even handed over decorating duties – and a sizeable budget – to his son.

  7. Leaked emails show a different, unpleasant side to Spiegel!

Things you expect to be included in emails from the CEO of a multi-billion dollar tech start-up:

  •  Insightful thought on emerging markets and audience habits.
  •  Slight humility and an awareness of the fickle nature of the app market.
  •  An admirable determination to shirk the odds and succeed where others have failed.

Things you don’t expect in emails from the future CEO of a multi-billion dollar tech start-up:

  • Misogynistic jokes about getting girls drunk enough to sleep with you.
  • Anecdotes about drunkenly urinating on said girls.
  • Marijuana and cocaine-based brags and a general sense of sexism, homophobia and racism.

Unfortunately, Evan Spiegel has fallen on both sides of this fence in recent years. Admittedly the negative, unpleasant side of his email-based personality was leaked by ValleyWag years after the messages were sent during his frat days, but still.

Spiegel issued a remorse-filled apology for the emails when they saw the light of day last year, saying: “I’m sorry I wrote them at the time and I was a jerk to have written them. They in no way reflect who I am today or my views towards women.”

Facebook had One Billion Logins on Monday

One Billion users logged on Facebook according to Mark Zuckerberg.

facebook billion loginsOn Monday, more than one billion people logged on to the social networking site, meaning, for the first time ever, roughly one in seven human beings on this planet were on Facebook within a 24-hour period.

Facebook CEO and  Mark Zuckerberg took to his creation to crow about the achievement, which took the form of a bland platitude that likely passed across four desks in Public Relations before being posted.

New Orleans Saints Benjamin Watson’s Post Goes Viral

Benjamin Watson’s heartfelt Facebook post reflects “all things good” in the NFL!

Benjamin Watson share thought on Michael Brown The New Orleans Saints Benjamin Watson, 33,  shared his thoughts and feelings on the grand jury’s decision not to indict Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson for shooting and killing Michael Brown.

The NFL tight end used his Facebook account as his message platform.  In the post, Watson reflects on his feelings about the grand jury’s decision not to indict Officer Wilson.

Watson shared the post after the Monday Night Football game against the Baltimore Ravens.  It’s since been shared by more than 370,000 people and liked nearly 700,000 times.

His message read:

At some point while I was playing or preparing to play Monday Night Football, the news broke about the Ferguson decision. After trying to figure out how I felt, I decided to write it down. Here are my thoughts:

I’M ANGRY because the stories of injustice that have been passed down for generations seem to be continuing before our very eyes.

I’M FRUSTRATED, because pop culture, music and movies glorify these types of police citizen altercations and promote an invincible attitude that continues to get young men killed in real life, away from safety movie sets and music studios.

I’M FEARFUL because in the back of my mind I know that although I’m a law abiding citizen I could still be looked upon as a “threat” to those who don’t know me. So I will continue to have to go the extra mile to earn the benefit of the doubt.
