Business legend Eric Schmidt, who has been an integral part at turning Google into one of the most powerful countries on the face of this earth, is going to get divorced.
And oh boy could it get expensive.
The Daily Mail has reported that Schmidt may be selling $1.5 billion worth of Google stock to settle his divorce with wife, Wendy. And among the many items that the couple share together, there are a few Hamptons toys that will be up for debate.
One of those is the legendary Oasis yacht that is parked in Sag Harbor right at the Long Wharf in the summertime (the deal to buy the yacht was actually brokered by a Sag Harbor firm). The Oasis yacht is awesome. It has a pool, a gym, is 195 feet in length and is considered to be one of the highest spec yachts ever built. Schmidt paid a reported $72.3 million for that.
Schmidt is currently seeing Lisa Shields, 46 and a top Council on Foreign Relations, according to the New York Post, for the last year and a half, and the pair has been seen here in the Hamptons. Last summer Schmidt bought Shields a Dutch Warmblood show-jumping horse that performed at the Hampton Classic.
I always wonder, do couples fight about money when they get that rich?
