The media coined the word “WAGS” for football, basketball and soccer players wives and girlfriends, in the city there is a new term which includes the tech moguls of our times: TWAGS (tech wives and girlfriends). Face it, we now live in a world in which nerds are great cool and make some serious fortunes – dating or getting married to the most intelligent and successful spouses. Let’s look at a few TWAGS who were either here from the start or have recently joined the prestigious tech club.
Grimes – Elon Musk Partner
Elon Musk is like one of those eccentric geniuses who have prospered in a world where those unorthodox strategies are not always possible. The multimillionaire playboy, now worth 69.4 billion dollars, has been dating the artist, Grimes, since 2018. Grimes is an unbelievably talented composer and musician who appears to join Musk in his quirky way of life in many different ways. The pair revealed the birth of their first kid in 2020, which they called X Æ A-12 interestingly.
Rebekah Neumann – Adam Neumann Partner
WeWork took the world by surprise with its revolutionary idea of an office, although it was financially pretty shaky. CEO Adam Neuman has been happily married since 2008 to his long-standing wife, Rebekah Neuman. In collaboration with Miguel McKelvey, Adam and Rebekah co-created WeWork. Both have enjoyed an impressive career over the years but have taken time to grow together their five-child family. Neuman’s actual worth recently declined significantly… to $450 million. But we hope they will all be fine.
Raven Lyn Corneil – Former Jack Dorsey Partner
A few years ago Jack Dorsey, co-founder and CEO of Twitter, was in charm of supermodel Raven Lyn Corneil. Corneil, who was 23, is a famous model that has been very successful on its own. When this pair began dating, news outlets became absolutely mad, particularly when the Twitter mogul, worth $6.8 billion cap, decided to purchase a $4.5 million Hollywood mansion for his mate. The two have since split up, with the Sports Illustrated model now being embodied by Storm.
Lily Cole – Partner Of Kwame Ferreira
Lily Cole began her modelling career at the age of 13 and made her fame in the modelling industry in the early 2000s, even in 2004 as Model of the Year. Since 2001, the red-haired and broad-eyed model has been married to owner Kwamecorp. The pair has one child together, and Cole has now moved on from modelling to starting her own business, Impossible, while still concentrating on her philanthropic work.
Lucinda Southworth – Larry Page Partner
Google’s founder, Larry Page, is worth $68.3 billion today making him comfortably amongst one of the wealthiest individuals in the world. Since 2007, Page has been married to Lucinda Southworth, and together they had two children. The couple dated for around one year before the knot in a massive Caribbean wedding with 600 guests. They spend a lot of their time working with charitable organisations today through their own charity, Carl Victor Page Memorial Foundation.
