Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg has reportedly split with her billionaire beau as the social media giant continues to come under fire following a string of scandals.
Sandberg, 49, called it quits with Activation Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick, 56, after three years together.
The couple had begun dating in 2016, a year after Sandberg’s husband Dave Goldberg died in a freak treadmill accident while on vacation.
A source close to Sandberg and Kotick said the pair are ‘very different people’. ‘She’s a left-wing Democrat who takes herself very seriously.
He’s a right-wing Republican who, if he wasn’t a very, very successful businessman, he’d probably be a stand-up comedian,’ the source told Page Six.
The source said that while Sandberg prefers to spend her weekends with her two children helping in a soup kitchen, Kotick ‘likes flying helicopters’.
‘Understandably, she is fully devoted to her children and work at the moment,’ they added. ‘Sheryl is under a huge amount of work stress right now.’
